Employees are a small business owner’s greatest asset. Keeping up with rapidly evolving employment regulations, on the other hand, is not only an expense but also a headache.
I get it. As a small business owner, I used to wear the HR hat while trying to maintain my company’s bottom line. It was a constant and precarious balancing act between compliance, culture, and budget. I knew there had to be a better way to manage people, so I brainstormed solutions with a talented team of benefits specialists. In 2020, that led to the launch of Clarity HR, an HR audit, outsourcing, and coaching service for local small businesses like mine.
Hard Questions Answered. Essential Tasks Simplified.
HR was complex before 2020. Since the pandemic began, the questions have multiplied. How do we track PTO when everyone is working from home? Is our handbook up to date? How do I maintain employee development in a virtual environment? So often small business owners are stuck between billable hours from their business attorney or searching for an answer on Google. (Tip: Using HR advice from Google search results can be hazardous to your company’s health.)
The current workplace environment is changing so rapidly that employee handbooks are now expiring every eight days. Things once considered minor problems may now become expensive fixes for small businesses, and urgent HR tasks, like maintaining correct policies and procedures, end up taking you away from what’s important: growing your business.

• Unlimited access to certified, experienced advisors by phone, web, or app
