#AnonymousOk, but on what basis were you hired for HR's role? and secondly what was the thought process behind you accepting this offer? with all due respect.
In my suggestion, you don't just need to refer a book but need to go through entire training process for being an effective HR. HR is a very professional role. Even if you read or refer a book, will you be able to do end-to-end recruitment? You need to do an HR audit to find loopholes if any, you need to refer relevant companies act to see to it if all the policies are framed under the legalities of the act.
Once you are successful in hiring candidates, you would have to then set proper SOP and format for rest of the employee lifecycle. You will have to take care of PMS, which method would best suit and how to carry it out. There is so so much you will have to fundamentally work on.
Let us know do you have a professional guidance in your organisation to help you strategize?
