Running an HR and benefits department without organization and structure is difficult. This is something Kandice Thompson quickly realized after she joined United States Tennis Association (USTA) Texas as its Director of Operations and Services in 2016.
At many companies, an HR administrator or manager can be responsible for payroll, recruiting, onboarding, hiring, performance reviews, employee engagement, and more. Having an HR expert on staff who has extensive experience in each area can be tough to find. Even if you do find someone, the ever-changing rules, regulations, and laws can be a full-time job, especially when the average employee to HR personnel ratio is 1.4:100.[note]https://www.hrdive.com/news/report-hr-staffing-is-at-14-per-100-employees-an-all-time-high/447480/[/note] In today’s post, we explore hybrid HR solutions, and how they can help to build an all-encompassing HR program that can set your business up for overall success.
Did you know that 67% of employees are not engaged at work? According to Gallup, this means that nearly 7 out of 10 employees are indifferent to the business that employs them.[note]https://news.gallup.com/opinion/gallup/224012/dismal-employee-engagement-sign-global-mismanagement.aspx[/note] These indifferent employees contribute their time, but not their full effort. Most business owners would find this number frightening. It is unlikely that anyone wants to run a business with employees who only offer partial effort. Not only does this decrease or halt the road to success, but it creates a lackluster environment, and likely a subpar company culture. That’s why it’s so important to impact employee engagement.
