Human Resources is a crucial function in any organization, regardless of the size, because of the responsibility related to supporting those driving the business to success…. the people.

Panthers Small Business Partner Employers Advantage LLC, explains the importance of a HR thought partner to the company, and how their expert HR consultants can help your business.

As a business owner, more than likely your specialty is the industry that you’re in, the product or service you provide and not necessarily HR, and that’s okay! That’s why it’s important to have the right HR resources in place so that there are proactive and supportive measures to protect the business and the people. That is why a HR thought partner is so important to your company.

Having an HR thought partner for companies that have an HR department of one allows for the solo HR practitioner to collaborate with third party HR professionals and get a second opinion on challenging employee situations. This is important because some decisions are very difficult to make as an HR professional when we are balancing the impact on the business, ensuring compliance but also the human impact to employees. Having someone to consult with can really provide comfort and ease to ensure that all components are considered with someone in the same field and has the same level of understanding.

Engaging with an HR thought partner can also allow for an improvement in the employee experience. The focus of an HR Thought Partner is to ensure HR policies and practices are aligned with business goals to enhance the employee experience which can boost engagement, retention, and recruitment.

The team at Employers Advantage function as HR Business Partners.  Because of that approach, they don’t just tell you what to do, they’ll handle the HR Function for you, or they give you the support and resources you need handle HR yourself with them in the background when needed. They’ll work with you to find the right solutions for your company’s unique needs and culture.
