Statistics show that the average small business in the U.S. spends over $2900 per employee on human resources every year, but at a time when many companies are struggling to adapt to an unprecedent economic slowdown, HR department budgets are often the first to be cut.
Although HR is a vital part of any business, many companies are being forced to spend less on things like training, HR software and HR department salaries. These cuts can potentially lead to long term problems like higher employee turnover and increased business liability.
According to a 2019 Gallup poll, turnover alone cost US employers over 1 Trillion dollars every year – nearly 10 times what is spent on human resources over the same period.
To combat this growing problem, a southern California startup, is trying something new. Founded in March of 2020 Human Resources Hero is offering resources like on-demand training for HR staff, HR forms, and policy templates, along with a huge HR knowledge library – services that traditional HR companies charge for – and making them free to small businesses.
“There’s no reason that small businesses should have to choose between access to the critical HR resources they need and keeping their doors open, especially in the age of free information,” says Human Resources Hero founder Jon Daniel.
In addition to the industry leading free resources available, Human Resource Hero also looks to help business navigate the complex world of HR and Professional Services Organization (PEO) products by offering reviews and pricing guides for the most cost-effective HR services available.
Business looking to cut costs by leveraging HR outsourcing companies can find detailed information about services available in their area along real world reviews from local business actively using these services.
