Advantages of keeping staff records

Keeping staff records beyond those required by law may benefit your business by helping you to:

  • match staff resources with production or service requirements
  • avoid or defend employment tribunal claims if a dispute with a worker arises
  • assess the performance and productivity of individual workers or teams
  • ensure that you are treating job applicants and workers consistently and fairly
  • make decisions in relation to staffing levels, eg on recruitment and redundancy
