(Other items include: Not paying required overtime, not paying
a terminated employee accrued time, not providing a safe
workplace, not carrying workers' compensation insurance,
keeping inaccurate records, not maintaining employment
applications, not having an emergency plan, not maintaining
payroll/HR records, not notifying employees of the rights and
duties under section 306 of the PA Workers' Compensation Act,
and more.)
On the brighter side, the role of HR is instrumental in creating a
wonderful culture in which the employees work. Here are some
of the more important roles of human resource management
as it relates to the employee and practice experience, and a few
tips for each:
Recruiting: The recruiting process is exactly that - a process.
The competition is great in the veterinary industry, and a
streamlined recruiting process can help you find top talent.
Well-written job descriptions with defined expectations will
help attract the quality candidates you seek. Take your time
when putting together your advertisement.
Onboarding: A step-by-step onboarding process shouldn't
just include the required paperwork, assignment of badges,
and provision of uniforms. Take some time to invest in the
development of this process and include introductions to the
rest of the team, a team lunch to welcome the new hire, a
one-on-one lunch, and a meeting at the end of the first week
to see how they're doing and get their feedback. After all,
onboarding a new hire is their first impression of you - make
the process shine.

Company Policies: Everyone will work best with one another
if you provide clearly outlined policies and procedures for
the practice. This is typically done in an employee handbook,
which encompasses everything - the vision/mission,
introduction to ownership, benefits, time off procedures,
cell phone polices, employee discipline when necessary, and
much, much more. If you don't have an employee handbook,
or haven't updated yours in a long time, this process and
final product can really assist with the direction of the team
and removes ambiguity.
