Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.

Startup founders need human resource skills.

Here’s a list of skills to bring to your startup:

Can identify talent that matches the company’s strategy.  

This includes defining the jobs with roles and responsibilities.

Ability to find and recruit the right people for the position.

This includes assessing the skills candidates have.

Can craft employment agreements. 

This includes defining compensation, benefits, and other concerns such as intellectual property protection.

Can set up a program to onboard employees.  

This includes setting them up with the company systems, introductions to other employees, and access to their workspace.

Can set up programs to engage the employees.

This includes establishing all-hands meetings, group functions, and weekly social activities.

Can set up programs to retain the employees.

This includes regularly scheduled performance reviews and employment issue management.

Even in the early stages of a startup, these are important steps to take.
