3 achievable resolutions for every HR department

Authored by Bukaty Companies on January 14, 2019

Every Human Resources department knows there is always room to improve and making 2019 resolutions is a great way to start. Below are three attainable resolutions every HR department can strive for in the new year.

Step toward a more inclusive workplace

Having a respectful and inclusive work environment can be more difficult than it seems. There are a few ways your company can progress toward this ideal workplace. You can start with diversity training or even social events that help connect employees who may not meet otherwise. Additionally, Bukaty Companies has a workshop on diversity and inclusion that you can register for in April 2019.

Learn a new technology

Technology is constantly evolving. Make it your job to understand a technology that may seem daunting. Start by researching and watching tutorials online. Learning a new technology helps prepare you and your company from a cyber security standpoint, for example. 

Technology platforms can also streamline your work and minimize extra administrative tasks. Our online enrollment tool, Employee Navigator, makes managing benefits a breeze. If you’re interested in learning more about this technology, register for our seminar in May covering Employee Navigator. This strategy also prepares you if other employees have questions. After all, technology is one of the biggest challenges HR departments may face in 2019.

Research compliance weekly

Staying compliant can be difficult when you know all the rules and regulations, let alone when you are unaware of compliance updates.  Staying updated ensures you avoid penalty fees and prepares you for any audit. If you’re unsure where to start, bookmark and check our website regularly to be sure you don’t miss any compliance updates. As soon as we know about it, you will know about it.

We will be putting out content regularly to help you with these aspirations for 2019. If you have further questions or are interested in our human resources consulting, call Bukaty at 913.345.0440 and ask to speak to Randy Woehl MPA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, director of HR consulting services.
