The holiday season is around the corner. The chill in the air only means one thing that ‘Christmas’ is here. As Christmas is approaching, we need to plan to cover the festival period without piling on additional stress. Holidays are the time of giving general goodwill, but sometimes there will be Christmas issues that come knocking on the HR’s doorstep. The problems may include low productivity, discrimination, holidays request, bonuses, incentive, etc. Although it may seem an endless job, I believe with the right planning and communication, the HR team can simplify these issues quickly.
Let’s check out how HR can tackle issues at the time of Christmas.
1. Informative Communication:
Communication is key to the success of any business. At the end of the year, with a company roundup, show how valuable your team is and inform them of any new changes set for the next year. Through this, you can also clear your policies on holidays, work expectations over the Christmas period. Communicating such issues that are on the top of the mind for employees will help them to plan their holidays accordingly and look forward to the New Year.
2. Offer Training Programs:
Invest in your team rather than merely showing gratitude with the bonus; why not offer them training and career development courses? This will demonstrate your love and care in their personal development by allocating training budgets. Such Christmas gifts provide benefits to both the individuals and organizations that make it a worthwhile investment, and this gift will last beyond Christmas.
3. Offer Latest Technology:
Holidays are increasingly becoming a challenging time of the year for employees. Tight deadlines, long hours and the pressure of Christmas can decrease the productivity of the employees. But with the use of up-to-date technology, you can see an effective increment in the productivity of the employees. With new technology tools, recruiters can quickly increase their efficiency.
AI tool such as resume parser provides a perfect solution to shortlist the candidates. It efficiently extracts the information from the resumes and fills the predesigned data fields automatically. Choose a parser that is free from coding or any technical knowledge. With such an effective system in place, HR professionals can streamline their recruitment process and increase productivity.
Christmas offers a perfect opportunity for team bonding. Employees can recharge their batteries for the New Year. HR can tackle the challenges ahead; you will be able to enjoy a stress-free and productive period.
