"HR for SMEs - a practical guide" - The Book

For many of those who have to get involved in HR in an SME, they see HR as a necessary evil. A hindrance and not a help.  When they think about HR what springs to mind are phrases like .... red tape ....compliance ....ticking boxes .... costly .....time consuming .....frustrating ....not my job!

If you ask any small business owner what frustrates them in their company, most will include HR and talk about problems with their staff. They will tell you about people who fail to do what they are supposed to do or what they say they will do! They will bemoan the fact that people constantly ‘let them down'. This is what they relate HR with... and blame HR for!

However, HR does not have to be like this.

Imagine you could get people to do what they are supposed to do, to the standards you need and with a level of care and commitment - wouldn't that make your life as an SME easier? Would that add value to your business? Would it free up your time so you could concentrate on other aspects of your business? Well, this is what the book "HR for SMEs" is all about...

Over the next few weeks I will be blogging some extracts from the book to give you a flavour of what it covers. In essence it's about getting the most out of your most valuable (and expensive) assets; your people...

HR for SME's takes you through all the key areas of HR that any SME should consider. But in a way that adds value and recognises that HR needs to have a commercial approach and support the business needs and objectives.
