Access a Human Resource manager when you need: how does it work, and how can it help the growth company?

How should we recruit? Where do we find the right types of employees? What skills are most important at what stage for our company? Who should draw up an employee policy? Rapid growth requires competence, commitment, and structure. And the people you employ will be crucial to your company's destiny.

Regardless of whether the company’s ambition is a handful of employees or many different teams, someone must take overall personnel responsibility. The growth company’s HR responsibility (Human Resources) must be in place early.

A common approach for the smaller growth company is for the founder or a financial manager to be responsible for personnel matters. Depending on the company’s phase and size, it usually becomes overpowering and, therefore, soon neglected. The advantage of hiring an HR manager is building a team and acquiring in-house competence. Still, the challenge can be finding a senior person with experience and competence at a reasonable cost. Taking the help of an HR manager on-demand can be an excellent and flexible alternative.

What does an HR manager do?

An HR manager or personnel manager is responsible for developing and managing everything related to the company’s personnel-related issues. It can be about everything from recruiting, creating structure and employment processes, salary negotiations to staff development, work environment issues, the company’s insurances, and other things that concern the company’s employees. The HR manager can also be an advisor and support to management in various personnel-related matters.

What challenges does an HR manager of a growth company often face?

Building and running growth companies often means quick decisions and new conditions. Within the framework of personnel responsibility, there are several immediate business-critical processes, such as:

• Recruitment of different types of skills at the right time and at the correct cost

• Onboarding of new personnel, i.e., welcoming and getting new employees into the company and their role

• Ongoing competence inventory and needs planning

• Support in ongoing competence development

• Employee engagement and culture

• Feedback and feedback within the organization

What are the advantages of taking the help of an HR manager on-demand?

An HR manager on-demand can help to a greater or lesser extent over time based on the company’s needs and budget. Sometimes the condition is more and sometimes less. On-demand gives flexibility and reduces risk while offering growth company resources and support when needed.

How can Cooach help your growing company with HR services?

Cooach has a broad network of HR managers with extensive experience in growth companies,  their challenges, and opportunities. Based on the customer’s needs and actual situation, we will tailor a scope to support in the best way. Cooach can also provide experienced finance, marketing & sales, and legal counseling experts to give the smaller growth company quick access to skills and expertise usually only affordable for larger companies.

An HR manager on-demand from Cooach can be physically present in the client’s office when needed. Still, usually, a remote-first policy with Slack or similar as the primary communications tool will result in maximum efficiency.

Purchasing services and functions

The hybrid organization opens up great opportunities and provides enormous flexibility. Today, as an entrepreneur, you probably spend a lot of time on tasks not connected to the core business and are perceived as unnecessary “admin time” instead of value creation. But you take help with individual services or even entire functions. As a company founder, you will release time, avoid fixed salary costs and reduce risk. You can get traditional business support functions within Finance, HR, legal counseling, and Marketing & Sales to the smaller start-up/ramp-up company without hiring staff with low risk and the possibility to scale up or down as needed. 

Cooach’s business support platform allows you to scale up and down according to how your conditions change. The platform also offers innovative automated services and features, making repetitive tasks cost-effective. Cooach’s platform makes it easy to handle demands and needs from investors and employees, and you, as an entrepreneur, get support and relief.

The digital workplace and flexible communication tools enable easy collaboration. And even if the core competence should stay tightly linked to the company, business support functions – distributed among several people – can become the internal resource previously missing and give you, as an entrepreneur, support and relief to focus on building your company.
