What is HR?

For any business wanting to optimise their processes, it’s necessary to have trained personnel committed to the mission and vision of the company. The Human Resources (HR) department is responsible for the processes of personnel selection, recruitment, and payments, among others. The main challenge facing businesses, is the continuous improvement of the staff that integrates with it. HR exists to improve the contribution of people to such organisations. To carry out their task, the personnel departments need to satisfy multiple objectives. It is necessary for them to face social, organisational and personal needs. These objectives can be achieved through the various activities of the staff which are focused on evaluating and maintaining an effective workforce.

Why Use Nordens For HR?

For many people, HRs is associated mainly with recruitment, but the range of tasks to be performed can be extensive. In addition to recruitment, a HR team also deals with payroll issues, holiday schedules, administrative matters, trying to ensure that employees have positive relations with each other and much more. Essentially, an HR department should be a bridge between employees and the employer. They should listen to the voices of both parties, and give the management the employees’ ideas together with suggestions for improvements. Their tasks also include presenting the position of the management to the employees. All activities undertaken by HR employees are aimed at developing and maintaining a specific organisational culture.

For those businesses that may want additional HR support or lack a full-time department, HR outsourcing could be the perfect solution. Choosing Nordens allows you to significantly reduce costs related to the implementation of Human Resources tasks.

  Why I Founded Nordens
Accounting 2 You

In November 2002, having sold our other business interests off earlier in the year, I decided to set up Nordens Chartered Accountants. The easy part was knowing how to do it, as I had established and built a smaller practice a few years earlier. The difficult part, for me, was not following the traditional accountancy path. Having run businesses, both successfully and unsuccessfully, I wanted to help business owners resolve their short term problems and work with them to achieve their longer term goals. Business has always been my interest and I love that I can help business owners achieve what seems like the impossible every single working day.
