Delegate HR Responsibilities
In order to implement solutions, you need to determine who will do the work. You can consider various options depending on your company’s priorities and bottom line. Here are suggestions to help determine the solution that works best for you:
1. Create internal capability.
Develop someone on your staff to take on the responsibilities for HR solutions (you may want to spread the
responsibilities among different people such as your Controller, CFO or Office Manager).
2. Build external relationships.
Create partnerships with your benefits broker, employment counsel or HR consultant to handle all or parts of the process you are not able to build internally.
3. Add a new hire.
Consider hiring an internal HR professional, either full-time or part-time, to manage the HR function.
Making the decision to spend time and resources on managing human resources is essential to growing your business. It will allow you to hire and retain the best employees, minimize the risk of penalties or costly employment litigation, and focus on the bottom line.
