022: The Great Resignation 2022: Could It Be Beneficial For Small Businesses?

Many of the most common questions HR consultants get have to do with when to hire an HR advisor. Do you need to have a certain number of employees before starting an HR department? Do small businesses need HR at all?

Sommer and Joey discuss the importance of developing an effective HR strategy early on and a few tips on starting an HR department as a small business or startup. 

Joey and Sommer also talk about The Great Resignation in today's 'While We Were Working' section. We're still in the midst of employees quitting their jobs searching for better opportunities and higher salaries. The economic impact of this trend is undoubtedly significant, but could it also be an opportunity for small businesses?

Understanding the forces behind The Great Resignation will help you manage your business better and stay ahead of the game.

And that’s exactly why we’re so happy to invite you to join this week’s online event called ‘Get Into It’, with Jill Schlessinger and Joey Price.
