I have a few years of experience in HR filed.But in all my previous companies there was a HR system available and I was following and practicing the existing policies. I recently joined a company in KERALA where the management want me to implement complete HR system there. I have developed a HR Manual and it is under discussion with the management.

I know there are lot to do to build a HR system in a company. Can anybody help me in this regards? What all can be the step by step procedure that I should follow to implement a complete HR system in the company?

The company is having three different but small sectors of business. Also they have branches. But branches are on different names and licenses. Some branches have more than 20 employees and some have less than 20.

In this regards I would like somebody to help for the below mentioned,

How to go for labour license? What can be the procedures? Is each branch need different labor licenses?

Is PF compulsory since the branches are on different names and license and some are having less than 20 employees? If compulsory what will be the procedures?

What about ESI?

What about labour welfare fund and professional Tax?

Is WPS necessarily implemented?

Please if there is anybody can help me?

Step by step procedure to build HR System for a Company..
1. List the various human resources needs you have.
2. Decide on the organizational structure you will use.
3. Create a system for recruiting, training, managing and terminating employees.
4. Develop a compensation program that includes levels for hourly wages and salaried positions.
5. Meet with your accountant to determine if you will handle payroll in-house or outsource it.
6. Review the costs and benefits of adding wellness programs, such as an employee fitness center, seminars delivered by health experts, a wellness newsletter or paying for smoking-cessation programs.
7. Meet with an employment attorney to review your HR system.
8. Create a budget for your HR system based on your wish list.

F. CONDUCTED T&D Programs with 50 Slides on Discipline, Attitude, House-keeping, HEALTH TIPS on AYURVEDA, YOGA, PUNCHAKARMA for STRESS, BP, SUGAR Problems etc.,


As we are in January, Adopting some of the below Systems, Rules will be helpful for your P&A works.




Some Cos. still use Leave Appn.-(LA)Loose Forms to take Leave every time: As LA is loose, difficulty to Check, Account, Store, keep track; to make Monthly Salary besides Saving PAPER & Printing Cost/WASTE where hundreds of emplís work.

On Checking 500 entries of Bio-metric Attendance in Big Cos., 20 LA was missing. As LA is loose, Seniors donít get time to check each loose LA & so, Co.pay wages as Certified by Staff though empls. took leave. Hence,

You can PRINT & Use LEAVE CARD (LC)-RECORD & Stop LA:. LC is handy, Seniors can always Check, Find No.of times, days Leave taken; to Calculate Monthly CL, SL,PL/EL to make Salary. LC/RECORD is Statutory. It cannot be manipulated like Loose LA.

1 Card for 1 Employee for 1 year.

You can introduce LC in Jan.2017. After one year, keep old LC- in Per.File as Record to verify in future. Easy for P&A to work out Entitlment, Balance- Leave Management. It is cheap & easy to maintain. Empl. will know how often he is taking Leave & HOD can caution, Mis-use/approve on need basis. Custody-P&A. Each HOD to keep LC to facilitate his Empl.to take Leave. HR to call LC when Reqd., to update Leave Regr , Month-end, Decmbr. - Statutory.




For Continuous Working Cos.,(Mines, Plants) -for uninterrupted Works, 2 Optional Holidays can be given with National & Festival Holidays to ensure Min.MP to man Essential Services like Prodn., O&M, A/c.s, HR etc., as most emplís donít observe all Festivals at 1 time & so, when 1 set of emplís take Holiday, other set can work & vise-versa. Thus, HODs can plan min.MP for Shift duty/ maintain Essential Services by adjusting MP to suit his needs & avoid OT or stop work due to Holidays (without increasing Declared Holidays-10-12).



. ============

Most HR/P&A Dept. have Per.Files on all emplís.Still,

many emplís current Infn. is missing when HOD wants it; i.e.

1. Present Address to send Notice to X,

2. Mobile No. would have changed to contact X

3. Nominees detls. to Notify accident etc.

4. Nominees detls. to send payment of deceased X

5. To know Marital / dependents detls,

6. To verify latest Addnl. Qlfcn. etc.,

As the above infn. have changed after giving Ist BIO-DATA -on joining, they can be collected by Dec.2016 using above Form to update MIS, MP dtls. For Per.File, PF, ESI & other Stat.Returns,ISO Recordsfor Promotion, S.I./A.I. in Jan.2017 etc.




Recruitment work starts when User Dept. sends MPI/R.F. to HRD/P&A. This Single Sheet Form has many Columns for HOD to Indent several posts- like Name/No.of Post tobe filled, J.D., Qlfcn, Exp.,Grade etc. (of the Person to be recruited). After Appl.by Competent Authority, send to HR Dept. HRD to compare MP Appl. with MP Planning & Succession Planning Statements to Check Internal Candidates+CL etc. If no suitable match, take MDís appl. to recruit. Follow Recruitment Procedures. Notify to Employment Exchanges under CNVAct, Employees referrals, Data Base. If no candidate, Issue Paper/TV Ad./ Contact Recruiting Agents to Sponsor suitable Candidates.




Absenteeism is becoming a serious problem in some Cos. HRM is blamed for laxity. It can be controlled by using above Form. HRM to take Action against erring employee or when a HOD sends A.N.F. to him. Proper Disc.Procedure tobe followed for AOS lest; Court may nullify it as void.

SAMPLE CIRCULAR + FORM for Adoption, are given below: (1 50 RP&F available).


6. WHY STANDING ORDERS (S.O.) -- I.D.Act. ???


A Certified S.O. under Indus.Employment(S.O) Act; empowers the Co. to take Disc.Action against its Emplís for violating T&C in S.O. BUT; the Co. cannot punish Emplís for Acts not included in S.O - SUPREME COURT.


Hence, Imp.Acts/Conducts involving Discipline of emplís; MUST be included in ďMIS-CONDUCT LISTĒ in S.O. & PROCEDURES of NATURAL JUSTICE MUST be OBSERVED to make Coís. action LEGAL.

Doís, Donítís, Duties of emplís -100 Points,

Mis-conducts forwhich emplís LIABLE FOR DISCI.ACTION-80 points, Co.Appn/BioData Form-40Points, Imp.t&c.in Appt.Order.-for Sk-20, Suprvsrs &above-35. (Pl.check t&c in ur Co.Appn., A.O, S.O.etc.)- Effect of Non- inclusion.

I hope; you will find the above useful . Will share more on hearing from U.
