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 is a necessity in assuring the retention of organizations human assets. It is a highly customized approach to behavior change, specific outcomes or the successful achievement of professional and personal goals. Coaching can be a no nonsense approach to addressing a person’s challenges as a manager. It is a well-defined step by step process.

Diabetes Specific Wellness Program

This state of the art program addresses the major health issues today, diabetes and heart disease. It focuses on the most vulnerable, the pre- diabetic. The effectiveness of the program has been validated by studies and the Center for Disease control (CDC) resulting in extraordinary results. The program is certified by the CDC and has and shown a dramatic return on investment in terms of healthcare cost reduction. It is a nonjudgmental, highly motivated approach developing positive habits leading to life style changes

Affirmative Action Programs

Organizations who have contracts with the Federal Government or who supply companies with Federal Contracts may be required to meet Affirmative Action requirements depending on the amount of the contract and the number of employees. Failure to meet these requirements can lead to compliance action by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs which can include the loss of Government contracts. We can work with you to complete an Affirmative Action Plan that will meet government requirements and work with and negotiate with the OFCCP if needed. We have a sound, comprehensive understanding and knowledge of “hot topics”, the most important current initiatives and the best ways to remain in compliance.

Strategic Planning
Developing a Strategic Plan is one of the basic requirements for a business to be successful. Do you desire a strategic plan that builds consensus and clarity within your team? Is your current plan results driven? Is the plan executable? Your Action-Step is to contact us for an assessment.
Leadership Training
Leadership is critical to an organization’s short and long-term success. Leadership skills can be learned and are critical to the success of your Management team. We can assess the needs in your organization and develop training that is appropriate for your particular needs.
Screen Printing & Embroidering
Recognizing employee contributions and achievements is crucial to engaging your workforce. Employees who are highly engaged in their organization are much more productive and are less likely to leave the company. A key element in employee recognition programs include the strategic use of T-shirts, Hats & Polos. We offer the highest quality, unbeatable pricing and 100% guarantee.
Event Planning
Successful company events require careful planning and attention to detail Our Event Planner has over 25 years successfully coordinating events locally, nationally and internationally. Our team is ready and able to deliver your event at the highest level with the least amount of effort by your staff.
Safety
Complying with OSHA regulations is only the beginning of an effective Safety program. The sad truth is that compliance with OSHA requirements has very little impact in reducing injuries in your facility. We can help you assess your current Safety program and help you develop plans to maintain compliance as well as reducing injuries in your business.
Union Avoidance
Unionized facilities have significantly higher cost and lower productivity than similar Non-Union facilities. Your ability to manage your facility will be dramatically reduced with a Union. Your flexibility in making changes to improve your business will be severely restricted in a Union environment. Recent rulings from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) significantly change the way Union representation elections are conducted. We can train your management team to respond when faced with Union organizing activity as well as helping you develop a plan to remain Union free.
Organizational Restructuring
Organizational structures that were once very effective in managing your business may have outlived their usefulness. Many organizations implement organizational solutions to solve specific problems only to find the problem no longer exists, but the organizational structure is still in place. We can help you assess where your organization is currently and identify areas where changes could be made to reduce cost and increase effectiveness.

 HR Outsourcing
Many small companies cannot afford a dedicated Human Resource department. Larger companies sometimes take on tasks that could be done more effectively by an outside source at a lower cost. We can help you meet your human resource needs in many ways. We can provide a temporary resource to replace an HR Manager who is sick, injured or leaves the company. We can contract for a specific number of hours of HR services each week or month. We can also provide resources to replace internal processes such as Payroll, Training or other HR tasks. Whatever your situation we can help.

 Search
Your ongoing success as a company depends on finding talented people with the skills you need. The process of finding, interviewing and selecting people has changed dramatically over the past few years. We can help you develop a plan to find the people you need, build the applicant pool and help with the selection process.

 Drug Testing
Substance abuse in the workplace has a real impact on the bottom line with increased workers' compensation claims, increased medical costs, increased absenteeism, lost productivity, and costly employee turnover. Employees are more productive and have better morale when their health and safety is protected from the increased dangers and risks that substance abusers present in the workplace. Workers will appreciate your concern for their health, safety & well-being. We can assess and optimize your current program or develop and launch a new comprehensive program which fits your particular needs while reducing costs and increasing effectiveness.
 Policy Manuals/Handbook
Well written policies can help your employees understand what you expect of them and what they can expect from you. They can be your best friend or your worst enemy in a legal action. If you have not reviewed your policy manual in the past two years it is very likely out of date with recent changes in laws and decisions in court cases. Let us review your policies and help you bring them up to date.
