Project-Based HR Solutions

Turnkey services to support your organization’s infrastructure, growth and success.

Looking for on-demand or specialized HR help? Often our clients call on our experts to step in when they are poised to pass a milestone or need help around a business roadblock. We’ll help you focus on the specific services that contribute to your success. From compliance audits to workforce planning and recruitment — from safety reviews to payroll system assessments, we can tailor our services to meet your specific business demands.

HR Audits

Learn whether your business complies with ever-changing federal, state and local HR regulations. We help keep you up-to-date with rules about health care, contractor-vs.-employee and immigration issues and help you prepare for due diligence if someone’s looking to buy your company. Preparation can keep you in good standing with OSHA, the IRS and the EEOC. If the audit reveals problems or deficiencies, we can help you fix them.

Payroll, HRIS, ATS Assessment and Implementation

We help growing business track key employee data, including job applicants, employee hours, benefits and regulations. Many organizations ask for our help choosing and implementing a Human Resources Information System (HRIS) or Applicant Tracking System (ATS). We can also help you choose a payroll system or an applicant tracking system to demonstrate you’re following legal procedures in hiring. Once you’ve made a choice, we can help with implementation and process to ensure the most efficient use of these tools.

Recruitment Strategies and Workplace Planning

Our expertise is in full life cycle HR. Before you start recruiting and hiring, we help you assess your organizational development plans to make sure you’re hiring the person you need at this stage in your strategic development. We will also help you develop succession plans for long-term stability.

Domestic and International Compliance

Employer and business responsibilities often vary according to state and international jurisdictions. Our professionals help you navigate the differences to stay compliant when you employ workers from other states or conduct business across the U.S. or beyond its borders. We also help international businesses set up compliant HR for U.S. employees.

Compensation and Benefits

We help ensure that your compensation and benefits strategies are aligned with your company goals and based on competitive intelligence about other companies vying for your candidates. Our professionals can assess and recommend a total package (wage and salary, paid time off, medical benefits, retirement, rewards/bonuses and profit sharing) most likely to draw the right candidate – and keep that person on the team.

Recruiting and Hiring

Once your workforce planning strategy is in place, we help you develop job descriptions that attract the talent you need while following legal guidelines. We can execute a recruiting plan and help source candidates through traditional channels and our company’s extensive network.

We also help take the guesswork out of the hiring process by professionally assessing candidates for key skills such as communication, teamwork, self-discipline, motivation and problem-solving.

Unlike many firms, we work on an hourly or retainer basis, not on contingency or as a percentage of the employee’s salary.

Once we’ve helped hire the right person for the job, we can handle onboarding, too.

Employee Relations and Workplace Investigations

Employee relations is critical to your organization’s success, and you can’t afford to ignore problems that can negatively impact recruitment and retention, not to mention costs to the bottom line in turnover and legal fees. We can help you find the information you need to make informed decisions, through employee satisfaction surveys and culture assessments, and we can help you improve employee/manager interactions. We work with executive teams, non profit boards and employment attorneys to provide workplace investigation and reporting services. We also provide guidance on employee discipline issues, unemployment claims and government agency inquiries including EEOC, IRS, DOL.

Manager and Employee Training

We teach executives, managers and employees the tools to communicate effectively and legally to focus on your organization’s goals, not personal differences. As your organization grows, we help ensure your employees are up-to-date with HR laws and appropriate workplace behavior. We help your top people hone their skills even further and teach your struggling employees the skills they need to succeed. Training is available one-on-one or to groups.

Classes include:

  • Accountability
  • Change Management
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Effective Communication
  • Goal Setting
  • Interviewing and Hiring for Success
  • Management and Leadership Best Practices
  • Performance Evaluations
  • Team Building
  • Time Management
  • Legal for Managers
Succession Planning

We can develop and manage succession planning projects to ensure business continuity and growth. This enables organizations to identify and develop candidates for top executive positions so they are prepared to fill those positions due to growth, retirements or unexpected departures.

Employee Communications

Clear documentation and guidelines, in print and online, help employees understand expectations and provide better work. We deliver easy-to-read, visually appealing employee handbooks, training documents and other materials you may need to meet company goals.

Employee Evaluation

We help with performance appraisal systems so your assessments align with your company’s culture and strategic goals, then lead employees to personal success at work. We can help you develop your staff through Employee Performance Appraisals (examining factors like competencies, job duties, attitude and behavior) and Employee Performance Plan Improvement (creating a plan to boost skills and performance).

Mergers and Acquisitions

A high percentage of all M&As fail to achieve their goals, both strategic and financial. Often, this can be linked to HR-related factors, including poor communication, lack of trust, retention problems, or mismatched management styles and cultures. We provide due diligence on all key issues before it’s too late. Post-merger, we can assist in marrying different compensation and benefits programs, payroll and HRIS systems, communication plans, change management strategies.
