The primary goal of the Human Resources Department is to match the best person to the job in the company. This maximizes both effectiveness and efficiency for the company. In order to achieve the best matching of resources to the positions in the company, the human resources director should develop a position profile. This profile identifies the job title, describes the job in detail, pinpoints the best hours of work, defines the duties, and sets out the skills needed to perform the job.
Every small business owner needs to develop an application process to hire staff. From creating the position profile to advertising to interviewing and then hiring; every step of the process should be documented and procedures created. This allows for the owner of the business to not only be in compliance with the law but to have a system to match the best resource to the respective needs of the company.
