Having a leading and independent body of Human Resource Management in Malaysia - Malaysian Institute of Human Resource Management (MIHRM) shows how important it is to carefully form and create efficient Human Resource function in any businesses.

Below are some ways on getting your HR function to work efficiently:-

1. Communicate regularly and be transparent

Communication is an indispensable skill in almost every task, but especially so in more effective HR work.

They need to know what’s happening at the company. In fact, they deserve to know what’s happening, at least at the big picture level.

You are required to give actionable information regarding the company.

Therefore, ambiguity will only lead to distrust about the direction of the business.

For better personnel planning, it’s crucial that you find concrete ways to communicate with your employees on a regular basis.
Whether it’s through face-to-face meetings, video calls, company newsletters, e-mail updates, or anything in between, they want to hear from their leadership.
You need to regularly touch base with your people in order to keep tabs on everything and make sure the entire business stays on track.
With current situation and economy that force people to work remotely - communication alternative like video calls can be a great addition to maintain the rapport and keep everyone on track.
2. Stay organized

Staying organized is vital for effective personnel work.

Whether you’re looking at your physical or digital workspace, take the time to sort out your task list, organize your resources, and process your inbox. You can allocate just a few minutes or hours every week to do this.
This helps keep things neat and tidy, and it ensures that they can be easily found when needed.
This is especially helpful if you’re multitasking, which you probably do most of the days. You may find yourself having too many things to do that you forget where you’ve placed a single document that’s highly needed for the task at hand.
By staying organized, you are saving yourself and your team the trouble.
While there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for any organization – since not everyone operates in the same manner – investing time into developing a system that works for you and your company is always a good idea.
3. Be discrete, tactful, and always ethical

Simply put, there are times that it’s important to protect the individual, while other times, it’s essential to put the company first.

When it comes to private matters, you should take great pains to have quiet, in-person meetings with employees. This isn’t just about ethics and legality, but this will also show your employees that you value discretion.

4. Be as specific as possible

In many cases, HR managers have to deal with situations that are ambiguous at worst.

In cases where there’s a gray area, it's important to know when to make an assertive decision yourself or colleagues or managers for help.

Therefore, to achieve effective HR work, you need to enhance your negotiation and mediation to effectively resolve conflicts.

It is also important to provide clear and direct answers.

5. Lead by example

Show your team that you are as accountable to your own policies as everyone else, if not more.

Leading by example is a real challenge, but doing so can provide a template that your team can then follow.
