In an era where technology reigns supreme, small businesses find themselves in a unique position. On one hand, the rapid evolution of IT can be overwhelming for some, but on the other, it presents an unparalleled opportunity. For those willing to overcome change and embrace technology, small businesses can compete on the same playing field as the industry giants.

Sure, the team discussions can get a bit one sided, but that is far from the only challenge that the solo HR professional faces on a regular basis. Understaffing issues caused by anything from turnover issues to stacked employee vacations can make an overwhelming job feel like an impossible one.
