When your business reaches a certain size, you will find yourself needing some help managing your team. It’s a great stage of growth and a really exciting time for businesses. But it also means you need to make some tough decisions. For example, do you hire an internal HR manager for your business? Or do you outsource the function to a HR company?
Whichever avenue you go down, it’s important that you find a HR solution that is proactive, and not passive. By definition, passive HR is when you have an HR function, but they only really come into play when something goes wrong. This is sadly quite a common occurrence in smaller businesses, and often happens when the HR function is mixed with another function, like accounting or management. This arrangement might sound ideal for the budget conscious business, but in reality, a passive HR function can do more harm than good.
