Most Common FAQ’s
No matter what size your company, you need HR expertise to effectively manage in today’s volatile marketplace, whether it is employment law, growing pains, or down-sizing, getting HR expertise protects your company. All it takes is one disgruntled employee to file a claim and it can cost you thousands of dollars. But you may not need a full-time person; a qualified HR consultant can make senior level help affordable.
Your employees should be the most important asset and customer that your company has. Human Resources (HR) Management is an umbrella term used to describe the management and development of employees in an organization. Also called people departments, personnel or talent management (although the last two terms are a bit antiquated), human resource management involves overseeing all things related to managing an organization’s human capital.
That truly depends on your company and it’s needs. Part of the definition provided by SHRM (Society of Human Resources) states that a HR Consultant is, “Responsible for performing advanced, specialized and administrative duties in a designated human resource program or area”. Services can range from recruiting and hiring efforts to strategic implementation of HR programs, processes, policies and practices.
Everyone in your organization has their specific area of expertise, including you. However, these areas of expertise may not align with federal, state and local employment law. They may also not align with creating a positive culture and morale. They may not understand what is needed and what it takes to find and hire qualified applicants and how to keep supporting those employees for success.
Attracting and retaining top talent does not happen by chance. It takes a thorough understanding of the competitive market place, competitive compensation and benefits programs, a clear definition of the skill set needed for each position and a defined performance management process to keep everyone moving in the right direction.
