4 New Years Resolution Ideas for HR

With a new year comes new goals and new standards to set for ourselves.

And since 2014 is only two days away, you might want to get your New Years resolution list in order before the clock strikes 12. To give you a little push in the right direction, here are a few ideas we have for you:

Polish your recruiting tools. 

At AIM Careerlink, we’ve got some great tools for finding the best talent around, but that doesn’t mean you can’t do a little customizing. Throughout this year, we’ve talked about a lot of different tools, like social media platforms and mobile apps, to help give you a well-rounded recruiting toolkit. But as with any arsenal, you need to make sure that everything you have is in tip top shape. Make an effort to keep your recruiting tools as polished as possible as we go into the new year.

Treat your employees right.

Employees are the backbone of any organization, and if you treat them well, then they will do well. Make it a goal to show that you genuinely care about them. Keeping your employees happy is a great way to generate camaraderie and creativity, and boost productivity. Do what you can to make your employees feel like they make a difference (because they really do).

Be nice to your candidates.

If you plan on treating your employees right, then why not go ahead and start well before they even become employees? A great candidate experience is a surefire way to hook in candidates, as well as create a great employer brand. This gives you a much better chance at reaching out to those potential candidates who you might not have reached using traditional recruiting methods.

Work on your cultural fit. 

We’re big proponents of cultural fit here at AIM. Having a team who works well together is an important aspect of a great company. Having a team who can see eye-to-eye allows the team to bounce ideas off of each other, and sets up the support system needed to get things done. It’s no surprise that a solid corporate culture can really do a company a lot of good.

We really could go on, but we think that this list of New Years resolutions is good start. If you can get yourself on the right track by taking these simple cues, then we think you’ll be headed for a great 2014!
