Spring is a time of new beginnings – it’s also a good time to breathe a little life into your workspace! Now that spring is officially here, there’s no better opportunity to get busy cleaning and make your HR space brighter. PuzzleHR has compiled some of our favorite HR spring cleaning tips to help you feel energized and efficient moving forward:
Switch to Paperless
From flyers to memos, paper can pile up fast. Moving your HR data to electronic storage can streamline your processes while cleaning up your space, making it easier to find what you need. Not only will you be saving yourself time, but you’ll be making a difference in the environment, too!
Conduct a Benefits Audit
While you’re tidying up, take a look at internal benefits. Health insurance renewal season can tend to creep up on employers in what seems like no time at all – take the time to be prepared for it this year! Make sure you match benefit elections with payroll deductions and the benefit carrier.
Perform a Policy Check
It’s always a good idea to make sure your policies and employee handbook are up to date. Review your manuals and procedures to ensure compliance with current federal and state laws. You’ll save yourself a lot of time and effort later.
Check in on Rewards and Recognition
While you’re staying on top of policies, don’t forget to keep track of the fun stuff as well! Supporting the company culture is just as important – so be sure you’re on top of celebratory events like work anniversaries and birthdays.
Take the Time to Tidy Up
It wouldn’t be spring cleaning without some old-fashioned tidying up! Go ahead and tackle any messes that have been piling up in the office. Sort and clear those stacks of documents, reorganize your filing system and even wipe down your computer and desk. Basic cleanliness goes a long way in keeping a clear, healthy mindset.
Spring cleaning can be a great opportunity for HR to get ahead and make sure you’re set for the upcoming months. Putting in the effort now will undoubtedly save you a headache later in the year. Start this spring off right and set yourself up for success!
