A new HR approach to growing businesses with Constance Aloe



Growing businesses need human resources – that’s the way companies can scale.

But Distinctive – People, Performance and Learning‘s Constance Aloe argues whether you’re a startup, SME or a Fortune 500, it is an area of the business that must be implemented in some capacity.

“After working in HR over the past 20 years, it is the area of a business that does get overlooked,” Aloe states. “I hear many C-level people say HR are is the ‘People Police’.

“People understand the importance of HR, but don’t want to make a long-term commitment to it.

“HR is too focused on risk and mitigation, and not aligned to business growth.”

Aloe breaks down how a business should be looked at externally.

“Any business can be seen as a series of inputs,” she says. “To generate a performance output – whether it be sales, market share or profitability.”

“The greatest way a business can improve that output is through their people.”

Employee retention is also something that businesses must think about, and Aloe believes by providing the right environment, they can keep their best talent.

“We’re hearing about ‘the great resignation’ coming through,” Aloe adds. “Companies are spending all that money to attract top talent.

“But the experience they have after entering the door is most crucial.

“If you get it wrong, it may cost you 50% of the person’s starting salary.”

Aloe outlines some of the smarter ways to have top talent within your business.

“You can have people in your business, without having a full-time headcount,” she continues. “You may be able to have them three days a week, and not paying them a full-time capacity.

“At Distinctive, we also offer HR support, which means companies don’t have to have that head count.

“Look at your budget, and skill set, and look if there is a smarter way of implementing it.”
