Hello Friends, I am joining a small SME in HR. There is no HR Dept as of now and I have the responsibility to setup entire HR Function for the organisation. The entire staff strength is 22 employees including myself. Appreciate your step by step guidance on how I should approach this uphill task. I am confident as well as scared. Sincerely appreciate your help/inputs.

You are a lucky person, as you got a challenging job - setting up of HR department.

It is a very challenging job that you have got. First of all, prepare the files of employees, include, their date of joining, contractual and permanent employees, terms and conditions they are hired on, joining dates, their work and career history, if they are not available develop an employee detail form to get the details, employee numbers, they keep the company card etc. Know your employees first, try to fill the basic area first, also the attendance management system is very important.

The basic and major areas would be:

The work stations,

Job Description

Person Specifications

Hierarchy of the company


Hiring Firing

Performance Appraisals

Leave management

Employee record keeping

Let them know the importance of having an HR dept in the company by taking relevant responsibilities.

Also start Working on developing an HR/Employee manual that includes selection and recruitment process Probation, Inductions etc
