Solo practitioners need to know the ins and outs of a particular business and must also be good at recruiting, onboarding, training, performance management, payroll, benefits, conflict resolution and myriad other responsibilities. They must truly be all things HR to all employees.

Over 10 percent of the Society for Human Resource Management’s (SHRM’s) members work in organizations with fewer than 100 people, and many are the only HR presence.

If you are or have been an HR department of one, you know that the job requires a mix of enthusiasm, flexibility and organization. Today’s practitioners also need to be pragmatic, self-assured, assertive and diplomatic, with a knack for building relationships at every level.

Let’s talk about the pros and cons. We can discuss the sheer volume of work, resolving conflicts, the compliance, and the sense of isolation, etc.

Networking and Leaning Opportunity

Held on the first Wednesday of each month, the Portland Lunch Bunch is a networking opportunity for HR Professionals to discuss an HR related topic.

Come, share and learn.  Remember, this is your meetingso come prepared to participate!  PLEASE bring your tips and suggestions to share along with your questions.  This is a great time and place to share your “learnings” with other attendees.
