HR services for small businesses

Good people management is crucial to any business's success - whether you employ just one person or have fifty employees.

Getting human resources right without access to specialist hr services for small businesses is tricky (to say the least). It’s more challenging for smaller businesses to stay up to date and in compliance with employment law than it is for larger organisations, which have people teams to do that. In most cases, it will be the owner or an (inexperienced) staff member who is tasked with looking after 'people' and HR.

So it is not all that surprising that recent research showed lots of smaller employers try to “wing it” without getting any human resources support at all. Yet sadly that is a much braver choice than most realise. There are lots of employment laws to comply with which could cost a small business tens of thousands of pounds in penalties or damages if they get it wrong, which is very easy to do.
