This is definitely not a win/win situation! The alarm bells start ringing because when things start to spiral out of control like this, it can be hard to turn it around. And if the alarm bells aren’t ringing yet, they will be. It’s only a matter of time!
These alarm bells often signal the need for support.
When situations like the above occurs it often becomes evident that you need some sort of HR presence to help you with the people management side of your business. This also commonly occurs as the head count hits the 15+ mark and people management starts taking up more and more time. But, whilst the need is certainly there, the P&L doesn’t necessarily support the additional expense of a full time salary.
This is when an outsourced solution is the perfect solution to overcome these challenges.
