The human resource department of any business solves issues pertaining to the problems faced by laborers in performing their jobs. In a small scale business setting, such as a grocery, the role of human resources department is primarily to train workers to improve their performance.A common problem workers faces in this highly competitive era is the lack of training and development to improve the skills and motivation that workers need to improve their customer service and the performance of the business as a whole (Musselwhite). Though this is just a small business, competition and other factors can take away customer share away from the business. Highly skilled and trained personnel drive a business to a higher level of performance.Aside from skills development, this business also needs recruitment and staffing crew that selects the right people for the right job and for the goals of the company. Though unlike big businesses where recruitment and staffing jobs are critical, small businesses still needs dependable personnel that will pick and maintain productive employees while possibly terminating unscrupulous ones (Henricks).Worker's benefits and compensation packages should also be properly rendered and given in a small business like a grocery. With a few people to manage, fair and just compensation with perks is a tool for securing the loyalty of personnel. Changing of personnel greatly affects the morale and teamwork of a small crew.
