HR associate partners with your business to help achieve your company and people goals.
The saying ‘people are your most important asset’ remains true regardless of industry or size. They are also often your most expensive asset. Your employees can determine the success of your business, and there are also legal considerations when dealing with people issues, which is why it’s important to get it right.
Small to medium businesses
Most small to medium don’t have the need or sometimes the budget for a dedicated HR person on staff, but if you have people in your business, you may at times need specialised assistance in this area.
Engaging with an external provider can be beneficial as it provides flexibility to gain expert advice and assistance only when you need it, offers an expert, objective and fresh perspective on situations, and your employees can sometimes feel more comfortable speaking to someone who doesn’t work in the business with them.
Majority of large businesses have a HR person or team, however, during times of leave, busy periods or for a specific project it might be necessary to bring on short-term, extra resource. The benefits are similar to that of SME businesses, mentioned above.
Support when and where you need it
HR associate is there as needed, when needed; one-off, ad-hoc, and/or longer term solutions are available. Whether you’re based in Auckland or elsewhere in NZ, there are ways and means to make it work for you.
