Is an HR department necessary?

Does having an operating human resources department actually affect the workplace? The short answer is: yes, absolutely, it does. HR is there to manage the human aspect of running a business.

The HR department is more than hiring and firing or conducting serious workplace investigations. Human resources encapsulate the social management of employees, allowing business owners the freedom to focus on whatever they do best. HR is there to manage the human aspect of running a business.

Common HR Misconceptions

Many have the misconception that HR is an overhanging entity where only big, scary things happen in the workplace. That’s not at all true! The scope of HR is not only hiring and firing or conducting workplace investigations.

Many say the Human Resources department is for only one party: the employer or the employee. That’s not true! HR is a broad-spanning department that is there for the legal side of things and also for the team of employees.

HR is there for everything in the workplace. They are facilitators of resolution, not enforcers of arbitrary rules. It’s not just there for all of the “bad” things. Why hire an HR professional rather than training an internal member?

A trained HR professional understands the following:

  • HR Ethics & Morals: Well-versed in corporate compliance laws, HR professionals assist employers with navigating the often complex and confusing world of business ethics.
  • Fluent in Legalese: a trained HR professional should have a strong understanding of legal language and be able to translate it into layman’s terms.
  • Communication: they understand the nuances of navigating challenging situations professionally and objectively. However, communication means a lot of different things. HR professionals are not only fantastic communicators but are also savvy advisors to both employers and employees.
  • Up-to-Date: We stay current with the trends and shifts within HR, professional, and the clientele’s industry-specific trends.
