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 drug testing program or develop and launch a new comprehensive drug testing program which fits your particular needs while reducing costs and increasing effectiveness.

Affirmative Action Programs

The U.S. Department of Labor states that federal contractors and subcontractors must take affirmative action to recruit and promote qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans. Employers with written affirmative action programs must implement them, keep them on file and update them annually. The OFCCP estimates that employers spend 130 up to 350 hours compiling their AAPs, depending on the size of the company. You can save time and expense by having ClearOptions, Inc. prepare your Affirmative Action Plans.

An Affirmative Action Plan uses statistical analyses to ensure that an employer has created or is creating a workforce that is an authentic reflection of the demographics of their relevant, qualified labor pool by providing specific protected classes, including minorities, veterans, women and people with disabilities, with equal opportunity for employment and promotion opportunities.

ClearOptions, Inc. develops written Affirmative Action Plans that meet all regulatory requirements following the action steps below.

• Prepare a Job Group Analysis and classify your jobs within the nine federally defined job groups.

• Prepare a current Workforce Analysis and Two Factor Availability Analysis, utilizing your facility, job group and census data;

• Define your labor market area and, using current census data, perform a Utilization Analysis.

• Establish specific goals to correct any underutilization that cannot otherwise be justified.

• Conduct an Adverse Impact Analysis with regards to Hires, Promotions, and Terminations.

• Compile Disability Utilization Analysis and Protected Veteran Utilization Analysis

• Prepare a narrative report that summarizes data presented, identifies plan responsibility, specifies plan goals and activities, and outlines how the plan will be monitored and communicated.

• Recommend monitoring, record keeping, and reporting systems and procedures to assure continuing compliance with regulations.

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 a company 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. It then allows a company to address issues that lead to turnover and to possible legal action. Reducing the turnover rate of the workforce can have the potential of saving hundreds of thousands of dollars annually and recurring. For more information about how we can help you, Contact us.

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. For help developing appropriate behavioral assessments, Contact us.

Career Mentoring

"I can get you there."

One of the universal mistakes people make when embarking upon their career is not having a short and long-term plan.The career plan doesn’t have to be difficult or even near perfect. For example, what most people do not realize, whether embarking upon their career, or in the midst of, or in the latter stages, most executives have a career coach. Why? Because it’s difficult to self-evaluate and provide to yourself good career direction and be objective about your career options.Having a career mentor, in order to be all you can be, is as important as having a good attorney or financial advisor. So serious is the need, it rivals the importance of having a good physician.While it is important to have a good educational background in delivering a mentoring program, there is no substitute for real work experice and more seasoned the coach, the more you will find value in your meetings.Keep the following in mind when selecting a career mentor. The mentor must have several years work experience, preferably in the private sector (over 15), know the local labor market, and can offer you a personal behavioral assessment.And last, in your search for an excellent mentor, always ask for references. If a reference tells you the mentor you selected played a key role in their having a successful career, you probably have found the right mentor.

Employee Retention: The Hidden Cost.

Every business has employee turnover. When employees leave, it is costly for your business.

If you have a high turnover rate, it should become a high priority on your project list. the good news is you can reduce that rate substantially without costing the company a great deal of money.

1. Hire the right people

Keeping employees start with hiring the right people. It is not only matching skills needed to do the job but also how well your employees fit into your business culture.

2. Offer competitive pay and benefits.

People want to be compensated fairly. Do a little market research on wages. Offer a competitive salary range. You cannot simply give employees a paycheck and be done. Employees want good benefits as well.

3. Give praise

Employees need encouragement and recognition. If they finish a project on time, show them you appreciate their hard work and the importance of being on time.

4. Show a Career Path

Your best empoyees need to be identified early. Wait too long, and they will leave. Show them how they can advance. Show them a projected path.

We can show you how to take each step quickly or over the long term.
