Demystify HR for the Department of One

2019 Annual Conference & Exposition
An HR Department of One (DOO) is often looking for guidance to handle everything—but with a plan of attack, it’s the best job around.

HR in small business doesn't have to be mysterious; sharing tips and tricks is one of the best benefits of the DOO community. Business leaders know the importance of compliance and employee management, but in the midst of benefit enrollment, recruiting and payroll, who has time? The typical HR DOO is doing all it can to keep employees happy and work with leadership on the bottom line. If you’re doing HR on your own, this interactive program will walk you through what you need to know to meet the organization’s needs,  implement initiatives that will transform your business, and keep your sanity. You’ll get tools and tips that work, are simple and budget-friendly, and can be used tomorrow!

Learning Objectives:

  • Communicate with executives to initiate the projects you need to get off the ground.
  • Develop resources to help get the job done efficiently and economically.
  • Manage risk for the organization—without being the person who always says “no.”
  • Define the strategic position of your HR DOO within the larger context of your organization.
