Re: Workplace favoritism
If you hire an HR pro, they can also help you with new initiative in regards to employee review/feedback, performance incentives, and professional development. They could help bring outside perspective and help you improve organizational structure and employee satisfaction. And they work for YOU, not the other way around. They will also stay up-to-date on labor laws, fair practices, etc, to help protect your best interests.
You hire the right HR and the right management, and they will allow you to take a step back and focus on your studies. You could keep the company, and potentially continue to grow while you pursue your other goals. The fact is that as an organization grows larger, the owner needs to take more of a hands-off approach, and hire management who get on board with his vision and run the company the way he wants.
