SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 29, 2012) - If you run a small business, people can be your biggest asset or potentially your greatest problem. Despite a hard year for small businesses, the economy is recovering and 38 percent of small and medium businesses are planning to hire in the next six months, according to a recent Rocket Lawyer survey. Small businesses are the employment engine in a tough economy, but hiring and management challenges can be a real headache for the small business owner.
Hiring is just the first step and complying with HR requirements might not be front of mind. As a result, Rocket Lawyer is delighted to announce a new partnership with ThinkHR. At an exclusive discount, Rocket Lawyer members will have access to live HR professionals who will answer questions, access to an expansive library filled with the most up-to-date HR tools, and open enrollment in numerous HR training courses. Rocket Lawyer is confident that this partnership will make it easier for their small business customers to stay compliant with government regulations, averting possible pitfalls.
"Great employees are always hard to find and keep. A great team is a big competitive advantage. Small businesses deserve access to quality HR advice to help them make informed decisions about employment issues, including hiring, benefits, incentives and separations," said Charley Moore, founder and executive chairman of Rocket Lawyer.
