Your business, Your HR
When starting or growing a company, HR Strategy is not a typical core focus. A few things come to mind when thinking about HR: onboarding new employees, handbook updates, management training, job descriptions, and all of the policies, paperwork, and procedures in between.
Most executives hire an HR generalist when they grow tired of wearing the HR hat. As the company (employee count) grows, another HR generalist may come on board to manage more of the burden. Through continued growth, an HR specialist or HR attorney may be needed to deal with employee conflicts in the workplace, claims of discrimination, sexual harassment, retaliation, or wrongful termination. Soon after, an employer may find himself now with a full department of HR personnel and need to adopt an HR strategy to scale efficiently.
