What is your people plan?
You know if you are not capital compliant the SEC will come after you, but if you are not HR compliant the IRS, not to mention a bunch of lawyers will come down on you so fast, you won't know where to look first.
Use your talent strategy to secure capital funding.
A clear talent strategy reduces the headaches and cost associated with the second biggest cost to any company - its' people.
Developing a plan for who to hire, when to hire and who not to hire is key to obtaining capital to grow your business and having realistic compensation estimates based on current workforce data reduces the likelihood of having to lay people off.
Know what type of people you need and when - and how they are all going to be funded.
