One of the questions that gets asked sometimes is “why bother with HR?” The more important question is “what does a start-up have to do and when?” There will come a point in your business growth when you should embrace HR – the best illustration is to think about business insurances – some you have to have by law, some you shouldn’t be without, and others you buy only when you need them. The same will apply, in time, to what HR you need to consider and when.
Brian Wilson from the HR Dept. has offered to run a trial clinic for SETsquared members. Brian has over 38 years HR expertise across a wide range of industries and companies, including start-ups. This can cover getting ready for your first employee, their recruitment, contract, payroll, and automatic pension enrolment from day 1. If everything doesn’t go smoothly with staff, who can you turn to for expert professional advice, maybe to avoid unplanned employment costs? Also, putting a little effort in to being “HR ready and compliant” will give you more time to do what you do best – running your business.
