New Company Setup - HR Services | Audax HR

New Company Startup

Starting a new business is an exciting and daunting task.

Everyone has fears that they will lose their investment and let down the people they love by failing.

How should you think about HR for your startup? It’s about creating plans, policies, and processes that meet short-term needs and budgets while taking into account long-term risks and goals for your “human resources”. Startups rarely have dedicated HR staff, and often one person who may or may not have experience in HR handles hiring, payroll, benefits, grievances, promotions and other employee-related tasks. It’s also just not very common for startups to prioritize HR as a concept!

There is always a level of risk when starting a new venture but let Audax relieve some of the burden by helping you along the way whether is one location or multistate on obtaining FUTA & SUTA numbers, applying for insurances, navigating government employment regulations, selecting systems, hiring, or negotiating with vendors.
