It’s 4:55 on a sunny Friday afternoon. You have a whole weekend of relaxing in the backyard planned. Maybe you’ll have friends over for a barbecue, or finally finish that crime thriller you started last year and forgot about. There’s always that super-extended director’s cut of a film from four years ago that just came out.
You’re blissfully contemplating all your stress-free options when your line manager pops their head in and cheerily says, “HR wants to see you first thing Monday morning. Have a great weekend!”
The truth is, the role of HR teams – and even the name – has evolved quite a bit over the years, though its reputation hasn’t been quite so quick to keep up. People Teams, as all the start-ups are calling it these days, still have a vital role to play in the structure and organization of a company, though.
So, when is it time to create a super team-up for your start-up? More importantly, how do you do it?
I sat down with Process Street’s own VP of People, Jay Hanlon, to talk:
- The HR team’s role within an organization
- HR teams: The problem of bad branding
- Key factors in building a healthy HR team
- The final word on HR teams
Come on in and have a seat!
