Career Transition/Outplacement 
Unfortunately, a company’s long-term financial success sometimes requires a reduction in force.  Layoffs expose the company to potential wrongful termination claims, reputation damage from ex-employees speaking out of anger, and the potential for workplace violence.  Remaining employees fear they may be next, and their future performance is affected by how the company handles the employees being eliminated.  Outplacement addresses that need in a sensitive, humane way for the employee.  This program provides job search coaching to affected employees, helping them understand the employment process includes developing an effective resume, planning the job search, and enhancing interviewing skills. From a public relations perspective and exposure, this programs can be the key ingredient in a smooth and calm transition. This service is offered by the company at no cost to the affected employee.

Workforce Intelligence
It is critical for a company to have workforce intelligence.  Conducting exit interviews with third party. Using exit interviews by a third party increases the chance to get the real reasons that an employee has resigned and not what was said in an interview on their last day of work to the company representative.  Third party interviews conducted after the employee leaves can provide specific reasons, by department that the employee left including harassment, union activity or discrimination of any kind. It is a key to reducing the turnover rate of the remaining workforce.  This service alone has the potential of saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

Payroll Services
Payroll services, especially for small companies, can have an impact on monthly financials. Using an up-to-date third party payroll service provides timely, accurate payroll compliance. Benefits of a third party payroll service include simplification of the payroll process, elimination of the chances of costly employee errors, and assuring compliance with all current government regulations, thus avoiding tax penalties and fines. This also ensures payroll confidentiality and provides the option to correct errors in a timely manner.

Background and Credit Checks

Using a reputable background check organization speeds the process and enables you to make better hiring decisions more quickly. It is a “must have” in today’s world!

Coaching is a powerful, no-nonsense approach to addressing a person’s challenges as a manager. It is a well-defined step by step-by-step process.
