Human Resources Help for Small Business Owners

Employers need to focus on what’s important, the business, but a company also needs to remain focused on its people. It can be difficult for companies, especially smaller companies, to focus on both the business and the people.

According to the Small Business Administration, small business owners spend between seven and 25 percent of their time handling employee-related paperwork. While the business owner would like to relieve themselves of many of those, most cannot afford their own human resources specialist.

There are many affordable options a company can consider when it comes to handling their employee-related tasks and issues. Some companies utilize contract HR (human resources) personnel while others completely outsource this function. Another option that has become very popular for small businesses is a subscription based Self-Serve HR program.

A Self-Serve HR system is an attractive proposition for companies looking to avoid a large capital outlay. Clients benefit from this subscription-based HR support system with access to HR forms, State& Federal employment laws & guidelines, best practice guidelines, on-line personnel records and an employee portal to provide company information, news, announcements and even an option for time keeping.

Affordable for most budgets considering the time and efficiencies gained, this service starts as low as $595 per year for a company with less than 19 employees and $795 per year for companies with less than 100 employees.
