Some small business owners look after the HR function themselves or delegate the responsibility to someone in their team, e.g., Finance Department or Office Manager.
Successful business owners know that implementing robust employment practices is essential to attract and retain great employees.
As a Business Owner, you know how important your staff are to the success of your business as well as how costly and time consuming it is when you are unable to find or keep the right staff. Your people are your competitive edge.
At some point you were, more than likely, an employee yourself, so you know what employees are looking for from their employers. They want to be paid appropriately; enjoy coming to work every day; feel like they are valued and are contributing effectively to their role, the team and their organisation. They also want to work for an employer that provides job security and has employment practices that are above board.
If you feel that you do not have the necessary expertise or the available time to manage these functions effectively then it is time to seek help. A small business does not need to incur the fixed costs of hiring an in-house HR Manager; however, it is recommended that they seek the assistance of an HR Professional for HR advice, HR process set up and/or outsourcing some or all of the HR processes.
