Hiring Your Own HR Professional

Oftentimes, small business owners find themselves wishing they could afford an HR professional in-house to help handle these matters. While extremely helpful, they often come with hefty salary requirements and may not be needed on a daily basis if the business doesn't have many employees. Did you know that there's another option?

Outsourced Small Business HR Solutions

Affordable HR Penalty Prevention

You may think your business is too small to need an HR professional, but one missed law change or one accident could land you in thousands of dollars in penaltiesWhat's one way to prevent that? Use our online HR resource for as little as $10/month.

Defining HR Compliance

Our HR resource defines HR compliance as "the work of ensuring that your employment practices conform to federal, state, and local laws. This work requires learning which laws apply to your organization and understanding what they require you to do. That’s easier said than done."

They go on to say that, "You have to be able to decipher legalese, know where to go to ask the right questions, and create policies and procedures that minimize business risk. You have to ensure that everyone from the executive team to newly minted managers know what they can and cannot do. You have to conduct investigations and enforce your rules consistently. And all this is just the bare minimum—necessary, but not enough to create a truly successful culture."

With new legal requirements always popping up and compliance often being difficult, it's difficult for the average person to keep up while juggling other roles in a company. This is where having an HR professional or HR resource on your side can really help you.
