HR's Role in Small and Mid-size Organizations
In many small to mid-size organizations, the HR function is a part of administration or is confined to administrative roles and employee relations roles. In most mid-size outfits, there are far more demands of HR than internal resources. Often there is little time available to develop expertise or help the organization develop or be a strategic partner.
SHR provides a wide range of services to help you! We can handle the time-consuming tasks of developing policies and procedures, creating an employee handbook, providing employee or management training, or designing new compensation plans. We have experience in all the critical HR roles. And we are committed to ensuring that new skills and knowledge are left with you so that the organization and you both grow in capacity.
New to HR?
If you are new to Human Resources, you can find a wealth of information and assistance through professional organizations. One of the largest for the private sector is the Society for Human Resources Management. "Workforce" magazine is also a good source of ideas and has useful information online. Your benefits broker and insurance companies can provide useful resources too.
Developing new skills and knowledge is critically important in our field. The Internet offers many resources. There are good books on the challenges we face. Many SHRM, ASTD, ODN and other professional organizations offer excellent information at local meetings and seminars. These also offer you the opportunity to meet other practitioners and build your support network.
There are also a wide range of training programs available as well as degree programs in HR. Whatever your interests, networking will help you find good resources and information.
