NEW YORK — As small businesses keep hiring, many owners discover that being a do-it-yourself human resources manager is the wrong job for them.
Becky Robinson handled hiring, payroll and other HR needs when she started her marketing company, Weaving Influence, five years ago. But during periods when she focused on HR, the company’s revenue took a dip. She realized she needed to keep her focus and turn those tasks over to a director of operations and an HR consultant.
“The only way for us to grow is for me to delegate and not get bogged down in the details of HR,” says Robinson, whose four-employee company is based in Lambertville, Michigan.
Payroll provider ADP said Wednesday that small businesses added 50,000 jobs last month may mean that owners are taking on more human resources tasks while they’re also trying to get new business and develop products and services.
