HR Staffing Audit

Question

 At what point does a small company need a dedicated HR person? Right now our payroll person is handling HR issues. She does an okay job but I wonder if we are missing something.

Answer

Many small companies who cannot afford an HR person divvy up HR duties between other administrative staff. It is not uncommon to have an administrator, finance, or payroll person handle the critical needs like making sure people get paid and benefit enrollment. Unfortunately, given the myriad of federal laws that apply to even the smallest companies, everyone needs experienced HR support from time to time. The rule of thumb in the industry is once you hit 50 employees, you probably need an HR professional and you generally need a professional for every 150 employees (so you would need two HR professionals if you have 300 employees). If you thinks she's doing a good job, maybe what you need is just a quick audit of your HR function to make sure everything is going well. She will probably learn a lot and you have the peace of mind to know that your HR ducks are all in a row.
