When starting a new business, enthusiasm and a minimum capital are required and everything else seems nice to have only. Even though real life doesn’t actually work like that, you can still rely on outside resources to develop your business plan, to create and implement your marketing strategy or even for bookkeeping.
As the company grows and blooms, you’ll need more and more inside resources. And these resources usually translate into skilled people to get things done and keep track with the industry you’re active within. Here’s the top 5 key employees any mature company – and yours! – should have:
1. The HR manager
Job interviews are time consuming and could lead to hiring mistakes, when conducted by people who don’t have the skills to evaluate a specialist, a team player or even an overachiever. Along with the specific job requirements, a hiring manager can identify the personality traits of a further employee and that’s not even the highlight of this profession. A great HR manager will get involved in guiding employees to further steps in their career. Will do the paperwork for each and every employee, founder or newcomer. Will keep the payroll on track and know when to give a raise or cut out a bonus. Will make procedures for every position, so that everything becomes crystal clear when it comes to responsibilities – and that will also be useful when you’ll have to replace a leaving employee. Will evaluate and reevaluate each position and track progress. Will keep in touch with the accountancy. Will make sure there’s no sex, age or race payment gap in your company. Will identify and find solutions for misbehaviour and keep you out of law problems, when it comes to people.
2. The accountant
No matter how small or big your company size is, no matter how many employees you have, no matter how many contracts you count, the accountant is mandatory, even though you have accountancy knowledge and know everything about taxes, an accountant would ease your life considerably. Make full use of their skills, abilities and knowledge not only regarding cash and bank accounts, but also other currencies, if you’re using them. For instance, you could ask him about the procedures regarding crypto advertising or other financial decisions that involve different payment methods you’re not very familiar with.
The communication manager
Communication is important for every business, both the internal and external one. With an internal communication specialist, you can make sure your messages have a clear way to the employees you’re addressing, whether it’s about new rules and procedures, internal events announcements or welcoming a new colleague. An external communication specialist or manager will make sure that your external communication is clear, flawless and follows branding guidelines. Moreover, the communication manager will keep in touch with all the agencies and advertising services you’re using, whether we’re talking about Lamar billboards booked through digital out of home services or the SEO agency in charge of your website’s organic performance.
No matter how small your business is, when you reach some maturity level, some human resources are mandatory.
