HR Introductory Basics

Employees are a critical component of any business. Successfully managing the human resource aspect of a business is essential, even for very small businesses. Employees are part of the delivery of the product and service. Their performance, commitment and loyalty to the job are critical and can be boosted through successful HR management. It is equally crucial for a small business to comply with best HR management practices and legislation to avoid incurring unplanned and unnecessary costs in case of a dispute.
