· Define departmental responsibilities. When creating departments within an organization, be sure to encourage communication and efficient processes across different functioning areas.
· Build a killer HR team. Putting the right people in the right places is key. As your company continues to grow, your HR department will need people with specialized functions, such as recruiting, training and payroll.
· Create a support community and learn from each other. You can look to others who have experienced a similar situation and learn from what they’ve already discovered. In fact, online communities such as Organization Organizers, a network of business operations professionals with open forums for questions and advice, was created by Rohrer and a colleague for the very reason that “If we all learn and grow together, the entire industry does better.”
While building HR up at Disqus, Rohrer also allowed BambooHR to help streamline administrative tasks so the Disqus community can stay in the creative zone. Rohrer said, “BambooHR is so beautiful that everyone uses it, which frees up more time for me to follow my passion in helping people do their jobs better.”
