3 Questions to Ask If You're Having Problems With Your HR Department

What Causes Employee Burnout and What Can I Do About It?

Last year, AETHOS conducted a survey of 68 senior corporate HR professionals to take a look at the relationship between the purpose of human resources and the role of senior company leaders. What the company found was that the primary issue occurring between departments was that there was such poor communication.

These people were severely disconnected from their colleagues and could not complete their jobs effectively, allocate resources, or foster a good corporate culture.

The survey concluded that the main problem lied in communication strategy, which led to a search to find out how to fix these problems.

How to Identify the Corporate Communication Problem Between Human Resources and Other Departments

The best way to identify the problem is by asking a series of questions.

  1. Does HR have the resources to perform its duty effectively?
    When it comes to talent acquisition and employee retention, HR needs to have the flexibility to restructure a company and introduce better training. Studies show that new hires that undergo structured on-boarding training are 58% more likely to stick with a company after three years. If there is poor communication between HR and the departments experiencing retention problems, then this problem cannot be addressed.
  2. How vital is your HR department to your company's success?
    While a structured HR program is necessary for proper company compliance, some HR executives are ineffective and make no difference when it comes to company-wide ineffectiveness. If you don't have a strong HR head, you may want to contact HR executive search consultants to find a better leader.
  3. Is HR being heard?
    While a structured HR program is necessary for proper company compliance, some HR executives are ineffective and make no difference when it comes to company-wide ineffectiveness. If you don't have a strong HR head, you may want to contact HR executive search consultants to find a better leader.

Not only do these problems need to be addressed, they need to be acted upon. FPL Partners is partly made up of HR executive search consultants that can either help train your existing HR director and help them figure out where they are going wrong, or can even recruit a new HR executive.

If you're having communications problems interdepartmentally, don't let it cause a domino effect. Do something about it today.
