The Role of Human Resources

Human resources have a role in hiring or firing people. They manage the life of a new employee at a company. The first few days an employee gets started sets the tone for the time spent at your company. New hire checklists are as follows: 

1) make the hiring official, 

2) finish a background check, 

3) review the schedule and job basics, 

4) review HR’s job descriptions and duties, 

5) complete all new hire forms, 

6) introduce new hire to the team, 

7) prepare the work environment, 

8) prepare the hire for training.

Submitting a Job Requisition Form and Complete A Background Check

A job requisition form is used to justify a new hire, explain why that hire is needed and determine the budget for the role. The hiring managers fill out the form, which includes the salary rate.

The employee background check is mandatory but you need to be notified in writing. The company uses the background check in order to make sure that they are not hiring the wrong person with a criminal record or bad credit from mismanaging their finances. An employer is legally able to look up certain pieces of information but under the Fair Credit Reporting Act, they face restrictions.

Reviewing the Schedule, Job Basics, and HR’s Job Descriptions and Job Duties

HR’s role is to make sure that the employee knows their schedule because of paperwork becoming necessary along with other various tasks to finish. Employees get immediate access to the onboarding portal. They also get first-day information. These days, new hire paperwork is filled out online, along with job duties being explained.

The Next Step: Complete all New Hire Forms and Introduce New Hire to the Team

Having a new hire means needing to fill out more paperwork. The new hire paperwork has to be completed by every new employee before they get paid. The employer has to make sure to register with the IRS. All new hires have to finish a W-4 form before payment. Then the new hire is introduced to the team. A new employee has to prepare for new hire training next and all this has to take place in the first 90 days of employment so that benefits kick in while the new hire is getting used to their new workplace.
