Higher Learning Network’s Human Resources Specialists will work with your School’s Human Resources Team to develop and implement structures, policies, and procedures that will ensure that your school recruits, retains and develops an effective staff.
HLN’s Human Resources Management involves developing and administering programs that are designed to increase the effectiveness of your school or organization. It includes the entire spectrum of creating, managing, and cultivating the employer-employee relationship which includes the following:
- Managing job recruitment, selection, and promotion
- Developing and overseeing employee benefits and wellness programs
- Developing, promoting, and enforcing personnel policies
- Promoting employee career development and job training
- Providing orientation programs for new hires
- Providing guidance regarding disciplinary actions
- Serving as a primary contact for work-site injuries or accidents
Our human resources development services also include:
Addressing current employee concerns:
Unlike school administration(Principals) who oversee the day-to-day work of school employees, HR departments deal with employee concerns such as benefits, pay, employee investments, pension plans, and training. Their work may also include settling conflicts between employees or between employees and their supervisors.
Acquiring new employees:
The human resource management team recruits potential employees, oversees the hiring process (background checks, drug testing, etc.), and provides new employee orientation.
Managing the employee separation process:
The HR management team must complete a specific set of tasks if an employee quits, is fired, or is laid off. Paperwork must be completed to ensure that the process was completed legally. Severance pay may be offered or negotiated, benefits must be settled, and access to company resources must be severed via the collection of keys, badges, computers, or sensitive materials from the employee.
Effective HR teams encourage company employees to do their best, which contributes to the overall success of the company. Their work often involves rewarding employees for good performance and creating a positive work environment.
