Do I need a HR Manager?

Generally, small to medium sized businesses don’t require their own HR Manager. However, HR duties are part of the day-to-day operations of any business that employs staff. Often those duties can be shared amongst administrative staff, managers and directors.

There is nothing wrong with sharing HR duties amongst the existing staff for some aspects of HR but for this to work effectively, good HR systems and procedures need to be set up. For example:-

  • Employment contracts;
  • An induction program;
  • Policies and procedures;
  • Workplace training; and
  • Regular performance reviews.
