Creating a HR System in a Family Business

I have been directed to set up a HR system in my company. Recently the management of the company has been switched over to a foreign owner.
I am facing tremendous problems to change the existing work culture to give a proper shape to the organization.
I regret to say most of the staff members do not realize the importance of an HR Department. Therefore, it is difficult day after day to run the organization.
Actually most of the staff are nurtured in family businesses. They think that if their boss is pleased that is enough.
Under these circumstance I ask for a suitable advice to give a proper shape to the HR department.

Creating a HR System and Organization Design in a Family Business

My experience is that in such cases a top-down as well as bottom-up approach is needed. For top-down, communication, setting of measurable objectives and an effective Performance Management System is needed. For bottom-up, external training, communication and reward system to be put in place.
Cultures change slowly, more so in social settings which are 'traditional", so you will need to give time to your people.
