As a start-up in growth mode or an established small company, with only a handful of employees passionately pursuing a shared vision, you don’t need a Human Resources department or an HR person to take charge of people performance. Menial and administrative tasks such as running payroll can be outsourced and you do your own recruitment, mainly by word of mouth.
But if you plan to grow and be successful, perhaps develop internationally? An outside expert in people management can bring you value in helping you put in place a minimum of structure, without bureaucracy, so that as your team grows and diversifies, every employee understands and stands behind your vision and core values.
This playbook is your first step as a start-up to understand what it entails to shift from ‘personal’ to ‘collective output’ and build a place where people can do their best work. You can decide to give it a shot at the beginning and start shaping your structure on your own with the help of this playbook. The standard and premium offer will take you one step further to get assistance and support throughout the process.
