Business OverviewIn our enlightened–and lawsuit-mad–world, businesses must tread carefully to make certain they don’t accidentally step on employees’ toes. This causes problems for small and midsized companies that don’t have the time, the staff or the expertise to deal with all those complex and constantly changing human resources issues.
If you’re a human resources expert, you can solve these problems by offering your expertise as a virtual human resources service. You’ll do it all, from writing employee handbooks to handling personnel forms to setting up and administering 401(k) programs. The advantages to this business are that you can work at home and the field is recession-proof. The worse things get financially, the greater a company’s tendency to outsource–and since this is work that can’t legally be ignored, you’ll always be in demand. You’ll need a solid up-to-date knowledge of human resources issues and how to handle them, an aptitude for accounting and record-keeping, and the sales skills to sell your services to your clients.
