ROCHESTER, NY--(Marketwire - June 18, 2010) -  With a focus on helping small business owners better manage their human resources needs, Paychex, Inc., a leading provider of payroll, human resource, and benefits outsourcing solutions for small- to medium-sized businesses, has issued a new white paper that provides tips on a wide range of subjects -- from payroll processing and employee communications, to worksite safety and employee motivation.

The new white paper, Better Employee Management: Eight Critical Areas for Small Business Success, leads readers through the essentials of eight crucial human resources functions. Paychex experts are calling it a guide for small business owners and managers who want to organize and improve their HR programs and compete for talent with larger businesses.

"Owning a small business can be much the same as managing a large one. Many times, it's only a matter of scale," said Lonny Ostrander, vice president of Human Resource Services Sales for Paychex. "Fortunately, today there are ways that small business owners can offer the same kinds of benefits as big firms, and in doing so, hang onto the valued employees who know how to keep their businesses profitable and growing."

Readers also can read the white paper to learn:

  • The best way to establish expectations between employers and employees (a good employee handbook)
  • Which benefit is most preferred by employees (health insurance)
  • Steps to cover when an employee leaves the organization (among others, calculating final pay and any retirement plan distributions)
