The Impact of HRM
Dana La Fleur
My proposal to improve the management of our human resources in this company is to readdress how we pay our employees, and the benefits they receive. Our benefits package should include health insurance, two weeks’ vacation time annually, 48 hours of sick time, and an employer match 401K plan. It is important for employees to take vacation time so that they can have time to themselves to be better employees for our company. If they are encouraged to take their vacation time they will ultimately use less of their sick time. Using their medical benefits to get annual exams and stay healthier will also lead to better employees and using less of their sick time.
My next proposal is for our performance appraisal of employees. We need to have a structure so that employees understand the expectations and will ultimately perform better if they know what is expected of them. In our sales department at the beginning of the month employees should have a goal of how much they need to sale and the type of items they should be focusing on. Each month the management needs to address the performance of the employee whether good or bad based on the goals that were set for the employee. We can then reflect on trends of the employee’s performance and look at ways they can improve. If there is no improvement then we can look at disciplinary action to probation and then to termination. Evaluating performance each month should prevent employees having to go into any disciplinary action with the right tools to keep them on track.
These two areas if administrated properly should be a positive component of a successful business. They will give employees security, providing them with benefits and the tools necessary to make the employee successful and the company as well.
