Human resources covers a variety of areas, some of which may be relevant to your business from day one and some which will only become important as your business grows. For example, as a start-up business, you’ll need to focus on hiring and compensation issues. As your business grows, you’ll begin to look more closely at issues such as retention and succession planning.
Human resources will be a component of your business from the very first day and throughout the life of your business.
