How and why is HR in small businesses different than in large firms?
Human Resources (HR) is different in small businesses than in large firms because they work more closely to the employees, in addition to their normal HR duties. If a company is officially registered as per the national laws and rules, then whether it consists of 10 employees or 1000 employees, it has to follow the rules and regulations established by the governing authorities. Employees need motivation, respect, love and appreciation. I feel that a HR department or personnel within small businesses, fills this niche need better because they have less employees to deal with. The Human Resource Management (HRM) department in a small business ensures that employees are happy and comfortable working in the company. HR in a small business also streamlines the entire task of employee management, making the company a well-managed storehouse of excited employees willing to give in their best and prove themselves. That is also a reason why small businesses are aggressive in their strategies to hire human resource managers, because ultimately, it is the people who make the company.
What are your thoughts and opinions about HR and the differences between an HR department (or personnel, if there is only one person) in a small business versus a large company? Why do these differences exist?
