HR Basics

Small and Medium sized businesses are challenged with an almost impossible task of keeping up with a constantly changing legislative and compliance ecosystem while typically doing so without a full-time person in that role. Coupled with historically low unemployment and skyrocketing healthcare costs, these issues are difficult for an HR team let alone someone part-time and without formal training in an HR role.
