The Great Resignation still hasn't abated, with record vacancies and over 40% of employees saying they're thinking of making a change. For employers, this means that it's more important than ever to get the employee experience right.
Employee turnover is a natural part of any business. Contracts come to an end, employees move on, and you hire new people to replace them.
Running a team of any size involves a lot of admin. You have to organize payroll, administer benefits, oversee recruitment, and deal with queries from the team—all while ensuring that you stay compliant with labor laws.
When it comes to HR, there’s not much difference between nonprofit organizations and for-profit businesses. Employees are employees in any environment, whether they work for a multinational enterprise or a small local charity.
Employees often shiver when they hear the words “performance management”. It evokes images of stuffy meeting rooms, where you feel like you’re in high school again as a manager looks over your file and assigns you grades.
As an outsourced HR consultant, I regularly work with small businesses in need of support in Human Resources. Often these businesses are either in a start-up mode or have a small footprint and need part-time, efficient support to move their businesses forward. That work can sometimes be tactical, and sometimes strategic, and so hiring an outsourcing firm with a broad base of talented generalists can often be a great solution for a company that finds itself in this situation.
