Providing Human Resources Solutions


 

Career Transition/Outplacement: Solutions to a company’s long-term success may include the need to downsize the workforce. While not pleasant, it may be one of the few alternatives a company has to use. Outplacement addresses that need in a sensitive, humane way for the employee. This program offers comprehensive counseling to affected employees, helping them understand the employment process including the search for other employment, planning a campaign strategy, developing an effective resume and enhancing their interviewing skills. From a public relations' perspective and exposure, these programs can be key ingredients in a smooth and calm transition and can enhance the company’s image in the community. Outplacement Programs are offered by the company at no cost to the affected employee.  
Workforce Intelligence: It is critical for a company to understand what really goes on in the workplace. Exit interviews conducted by company officials on the last day of work are notoriously poor sources of information. Using exit interviews by a third party can give an understanding of why an employee has really resigned. Third party interviews conducted after the employee leaves provides specific reasons, including harassment, union activity or discrimination of any kind which allows you to address issues that lead to turnover and possible legal action. Reducing the turnover rate of the workforce can have the potential of saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually and recurring.  
Payroll Services: Payroll services, especially for small companies, can be a less costly alternative to processing payroll in house. Using a third party payroll service offers accuracy in payroll processing while providing reporting tools to help you manage your workforce and ensuring accurate and timely tax payments. 
Background and Credit Checks: Hiring good employees is essential to the success of any business. Conducting background checks can help you avoid making bad hires and can protect you from liability. We offer quick and accurate results to help you make the right hiring decision.

Behavioral Assessments:
Finding the right candidate for your open positions involves more than looking at resumes and conducting interviews. Behavioral Assessments can be used to vastly improve your chances of hiring the best person. They can be used to identify the skills, competencies and personal attributes required to perform the position successfully. These assessments can be used to determine to what extent your candidates have these qualities. The assessment can give you a basis for developing behavioral interview questions that will help you to determine how the individual performs the duties that are needed.
Coaching: Individual coaching may be a necessity with highly productive employees in assuring the retention of organizations human assets. It is a customized approach to behavior change to assure specific outcomes or the successful achievement of professional and personal goals. Coaching can be a no nonsense approach in addressing a person’s challenges as a manager. It is a well-defined step by step by step process.
