The lines between HR and payroll are blurring. More and more savvy business owners are realising that there is a wealth of information that can be shared between these two functions. But small businesses tend to often think that HR is just for the big boys – that they don’t need an HR strategy. If this sounds like you, it’s possibly time to think again.
Why even small businesses should have an HR strategy
HR strategy may sound grand, but in reality, having a vision for your investment in people normally makes for a much healthier ROI. This, together with the reduced financial risk of having a medium to long term view on your HR really is a good idea.
Your HR strategy is likely to cover how you recruit and select staff, as well as how much you pay them and what benefits you may include in their packages. It will also lay out how you will manage your people from a performance and conduct point of view as well as how you’ll maximise their skills through training and development.
And of course HR deals with the boring stuff, like contracts of employment and facts and figures relating to your people.
If you only have a small number of staff, this task shouldn’t be too onerous, but as your business grows, you could quickly go from thinking that HR is only for the big boys to wishing you had an HR function to call on.
