Plan for a fantastic year with the HR Planner

From my own time in HR, I know how hectic it can be. With so many people, projects and dates flying around, it can be hard to keep track of everything.

This inspired me to create the HR Planner. It’s a trusty companion that sits on your desk and helps you stay on top of it all, whatever working life throws at you.

Back by popular demand

Since I launched the first HR Planner a few years back, I’ve been overwhelmed with the amazing response it’s received. First, as a PDF download, then as a durable hard-backed version.

I’m delighted to announce that the 2024 edition is now available.

Filled with helpful features and simple, reassuring activities

  • Goal-setting activities: These guide you through setting meaningful goals for a more successful, satisfying year. People often tell me this is their favourite part.

  • Quarterly planning page: This helps you to make sure your key goals and activities are spread across the year as evenly as possible, so that you aren’t overwhelmed.

  • Monthly review pages: Once you’ve set your goals, these pages will keep you on-track to reach them.

  • Quarterly review pages: Review & reset your goals at key points throughout the year

  • Monthly awareness dates: Awareness, inclusion and special dates, all immediately to hand. They’re great for prompting thinking about new initiatives to launch and providing a natural tie-in with existing events.

  • Key HR tasks checklist: What you need to do, and when you need to do it, so that nothing slips through the cracks.

  • Weekly planning: Trying to cram To Do lists into one day can feel overwhelming, and writing out leftover tasks again is never fun. So, these weekly pages help you break down tasks into more manageable parts, spread across the week.

  • Praise pages: A space to keep positive feedback you receive throughout the year – a great way of recognising the progress you’re making and boosting your confidence.

  • Spiral bound: Lays flat when open for ease of use.

  • Year at a glance: Located on the back cover, for quick reference, it’s a simple way to check how many weeks you have for projects when planning them in, to ensure there’s enough time to get everything sorted without rushing.

What a find the HR Planner was!

As a standalone HR professional, I am always on the lookout for tools to help me in my busy work life.

What a find the HR Planner was!‌

This is the first time I’ve ever used anything like this and gradually throughout the year, I used it more and more.

  • I found the Key HR Tasks a helpful reminder and added my own.
  • The weekly planner became my bible.
  • I started to write down what went well and what didn’t go so well – never done this before!
  • The calendar has almost all the awareness dates in it already, so no need to go searching the internet for those anymore.
  • The end of the month reflection – which I didn’t fill in every month, but those months that I did complete it, were a revelation of just how much I had achieved. It was also a helpful reminder of what I didn’t quite get to finalise, but I was able to carry that over to the next month of the planner.

For me the HR Planner kept everything in one place.

It is a fabulous tool

I’ve been using the HR Planner for the last couple of years and am always the first in the queue when it’s time to order the next one!

It is a fabulous tool in helping me plan my everyday work and projects, ensuring I don’t miss any key dates or tasks. Fay has very kindly done the hard work for us and provided the awareness dates. Thank you, Fay! I soon found myself using it every single day in my work and for my career development.

I’ve used it both as an internal HR Manager and now as an HR independent. It is great at not only helping me to plan my work for my various clients but also as a personal development tool. You can use it to track your career goals and it has certainly helped me to make those goals stick!

I especially love the praise pages too, as it’s so important to note these, as you never know when you might need to refer to them for a much-needed confidence boost.

I love being able to look back on each month and see what I have achieved and that everything is kept in one place.
