For the most part, most small to mid-sized organizations already run very lean when it comes to HR staff; the common issue is companies don’t give their HR staff the proper tools to do their job effectively. As outlined in the article, here are 4 easy steps that a company can take to build a world class HR team:

1.     Baseline your current processes and identify areas of improvement

2.     Find ways to utilize technology to become better
