People are a small organisation’s most important asset, but are firms getting the most from their talent and payroll technology?
HR professionals in small businesses face a raft of challenges, from the increasing need to digitalise their payroll, to ensuring they have the processes and frameworks to deal with their people in the right way. These small HR teams juggle multiple priorities at once, often with limited resources and support to draw on.
