It has been years since my last college course on human resources development and while I did well in college and think that I learned and internalized quite a lot of it, a short conversation with Sunil Ramlall brings to light just how much one needs to know and sadly, how little I learned about the topic and even worse, how much I retained.
As a long time small business owner there are things we do differently than larger businesses. I have the benefit of having worked for some of these companies in corporate America but the reality is I didn’t appreciate a lot of the rules and procedures that were put into place as I saw them as being time wasters. I was right for the most part. Most of them wasted time until that 1 in 1000 chance that something happens and now those procedures save the company tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. Now they make complete sense.
These are some of the things that came up in just a short time conversing with Professor Sunil Ramlall about his HR Consulting company http://www.sunilramlall.com. While many larger companies have internal HR management many small and medium sized companies have not developed this portion of the company and can use the services of someone like Dr. Sunil Ramlall to help design aspects of their training, manuals, pay structures and even hiring and firing procedures.
