Typical HR Practices Organizations generally cannot afford (or don't want) to build and maintain large HR departments staffed with experts in every HR discipline. Whether or not they have a dedicated HR manager in each location, most firms don't have enough hours in the day to handle all the management issues that they face. All too often, firms have a limited professionally trained, knowledgeable and experienced HR staff. Therefore, they're also utilizing department heads, supervisors, secretaries, office managers or finance staff people with regular full-time jobs who now have HR responsibilities piled on. Yet with literally hundreds of critical HR topics and with the field changing daily even an HR pro simply cannot stay on top of everything you need to know and do. 14
