Important employment and workplace considerations to accomplish for the month of May.
Conduct an annual HR audit
An HR audit will give you a clear picture of your company’s HR compliance and effectiveness by identifying key areas of opportunity for your organization to improve compliance, increase efficiency, and ensure that your workforce is on track with business goals and objectives.
Launch a summer intern program
Now is the time to start laying the ground work for summer internships. An internship program is a great way to get some additional projects and lower level tasks taken care of while providing college students or recent graduates with a chance to pair their education with real-life business experience.
Consider connecting with local colleges
Invigorate your organization with fresh ideas! Reaching out to local colleges provides an opportunity to interact with new graduates, participate in career fairs, or even offer your company as a “case study” for school projects.
Review your policy on pre-employment drug screens
With the increased legalization of marijuana across a wide range of states, some employers are dropping it from their pre-employment drug screens. Experts say HR should consider the nature of the job and industry when contemplating whether to adjust their current policies.
