5 Stages of the Life Cycle
1. Recruitment Growing your business starts with hiring the right people. Hiring decisions play a critical role in turnover, productivity, and growth. In order to succeed in the recruitment phase of the HR life cycle, your human resources department needs to:
2. Education Begin the education process from the moment employees start in their new position. They should know their role in the company, your expectations, and their responsibilities. During this phase of the human resources life cycle, it’s important for HR to:
3. Motivation Turnover is highest in the first ninety days, which is often due to a lack of motivation. Leaders who focus on building bonds with employees in the first ninety days retain employees longer than those who do not make this effort. HR can effectively motivate new hires by:

The fifth stage of the HR life cycle gives you the opportunity to reenergize your staff, thank employees for their hard work, and recognize important milestones.

As a small to medium business owner or manager you may think that you have a million other things that are more important and useful to do rather than spending time developing job descriptions. You probably think your resources would be much better spent on tasks other than developing a document that has limited uses. However you could not be further from the truth. Developing job descriptions is essential to the success and efficiency of your business. They create clarity. Clarity is one of the biggest reasons every role within your business should be defined via a job description.
It is important that all new employees receive induction training at the beginning of their employment and that they are provided with all the equipment and information necessary to carry out their jobs effectively. Induction programs can vary from training or mentoring, can be conducted by HR and/or the department manager, and may last weeks or even months. Regardless of the length, these programs allow the employee to gain valuable information regarding the organization and how they will be expected to integrate in it.
The human resource life cycle is portrayed as a circle because it is continuous and begins from start to finish like a cycle or circle. There is no end or beginning as end will lead to a new beginning.
