4 Reasons HR Services are Important to Small Businesses

Small businesses need someone to manage their HR needs just as large businesses do. If you have employees, you must have human resources management. Employees can be a liability, and an HR department can help mitigate some of this risk. Rather than hiring, training, and providing a salary and benefits to an HR professional, you can save money and outsource all of your human resource needs to an experienced HR company.

Below are four great reasons why every small business needs HR services.

  1. Ensure compliance with state and federal regulations.

Every business – small or large – has laws for which they must abide. Being small doesn’t grant you any leniencies. Thankfully, having an HR service ensures that you are in compliance with all rules and regulations that pertain to your employees. Whether it’s hiring staff, terminating staff, or creating a safe working environment, your HR company will make sure you are meeting the standards in labor law, such as the Fair Labor Standards Act and the Equal Pay Act.

  1. Lower the risk of a bad hire.

A bad hire results in financial losses. It can also negatively affect the culture and morale of your workplace. To avoid making a bad hiring decision, it’s in your best interest to work with an HR service. HR teams are familiar with ways to minimize the chances of a bad hire. You also don’t have to be plagued by other formalities that can come up, such as discrimination claims or inappropriate questions.

  1. Improve the training and development process.

Many small businesses are surprised to learn just how important training and development are to their organization. An HR service can help out your small company by providing necessary training. You would be surprised by how many workshops and educational courses are available at discounted rates. This allows you to train employees with the latest technology and create positive change in the workplace.

  1. Increase the speed and efficiency of your administrative department.

Your business may be small, but that doesn’t mean administration is nonexistent. HR services work alongside your administration team to keep on top of employee needs. Work with your service provider to create employee recognition programs and activities that will keep your workers engaged. Being hands-on with your staff can greatly reduce turnover and missed work.

HR services are vital to a small business. Consider outsourcing your needs to a third party, such as Abel HR so that you can focus on the core competencies of your business.

  • How To Navigate a Non-Linear Reporting Structure

    Although it is not ideal, a Gallup survey suggests that 84 percent of US employees report to multiple managers. In past years, most businesses followed a hierarchal structure, whereby employees report to one person, who reports to the next in line, and so on up to the CEO. However, companies today operate in a more project-based environment, with teams spanning multiple departments on an as-needed basis.  While the matrixed workplace does have its perks, namely that someone can work across departments and have accountability and oversight on various projects, it can present its challenges. Probably the biggest pitfall occurs when
