Human Resources in the Family Business : Maximizing the Power of Your People (Hardcover) (David Ransburg
About this item
When a small family business begins to grow one of the first moves is to hire outside staff. Typically these employees report directly to the founder or other family members in an informal capacity. Over time, it becomes important to formalize the hiring and firing, training and compensation within the company and an HR manager role is created. But managing non-family managers and employees can be tricky and founders are not always sensitive to the legal status of employees and HR managers struggle with developing a formal process that meets the needs of the company, the employee and the founder. This book will help HR managers and founders/owners develop a formal process within the company and also provide insights from family firms on how to manage sensitive topics ranging from family member compensation; family member appraisal etc. The book also serves as a guide to HR managers struggling to get a 'seat at the table' in family firms showing them how to create value in their roles of 'human capacity.'
