Society for Human Resource Management provides valuable HR information
Most companies with fewer than 50 employees can't afford a human resource (HR) professional on staff. The management team, therefore, does the best it can to deal with full-time employee-related issues on a part-time basis. Often this results in just "putting out the fire" rather than engaging the employee in a thoughtful dialogue about the problem.
For smaller companies, there's a place to turn: The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). It is an international organization that provides valuable HR information, services and publications.
