Big Focus on Small Business is a confidential forum for small business owners, or major decision makers of a small business where they can learn and share ideas in a safe and non-threatening environment. This FREE program is exclusive to Chamber members. The program is facilitated by SCORE (former CEOs, CFOs, Directors of Sales/Marketing and Management Executives).
Our topic for this month is HR Issues for the Small Business
presented by Chet Mosteller, President of Mosteller & Associates.
Small businesses face human resource challenges distinct from those mid-size and larger companies often experience. Large firms often have full staffs of HR generalists and specialists. Typically, the owner of a small business is responsible for overseeing all aspects of the HR function – hiring, firing, compensation, benefits, training, safety and protection, etc. Many small business are so focused on core business issues, that they may overlook some of the potentially serious and costly HR concerns, such as human resource compliance issues. This facilitated discussion will focus on a wide range of HR issues facing small businesses and tactics and options in meeting these demands.
