The fact that a company with such strong roots in helping SME’s with HR chooses flexHR®; is a testament to our technology.”

“SMEs and Start-ups are a cornerstone to our economy; however they generally do not put emphasis on good human resource practices given this has traditionally been a costly affair. Some see it as a distraction that takes up a great deal of their time. More importantly, the lack of good human resource practices within the SME sector exposes them to serious financial penalties; ranging from labour department inspections to employment disputes. This is a serious risk management issue in our hand, which needs to be managed and mitigated in order to protect the SME sector” said Mr. Roy Prasad, CEO of i-HR Consulting Sdn Bhd.
