Each of our clients is unique. Each has different strengths, different philosophies, different approaches to their business. Strategies for Human Resources will tailor each project to specifically meet your needs and support your organizational goals and objectives.
Following is a sample list of the services we offer. If you do not see a specific service, please call or e-mail us.
Audits of Human Resources & Payroll
On the day you hired your first employee, you became subject to 47 laws. As you grow, that number increases dramatically. An audit will minimize the possibility of expensive surprises from the many government agencies that have jurisdiction over employers.
Our Hotline provides inexpensive, effective answers to your employee relations and labor compliance questions, including:
How to manage performance and behavior issues
How a new or changed policy may affect your workforce (Some changes can have unintended consequences!)
How to comply with State and Federal labor regulations
How to handle an employee Leave of Absence request
How to pay an employee for travel and rules for unauthorized overtime
Sexual Harassment Avoidance Training
Sexual Harassment Avoidance Training for all employees is absolutely necessary to reduce complaints and increase protection for employers. Our 2-hour training is mandated (AB 1825) for California supervisors. The training is interactive and conducted by presenters with experience in sexual harassment investigations and in retaliation mitigation.
Human Resources Policies and Procedures
Increase employee morale at all levels. Develop your companys culture and standardize supervisors' treatment of employees.
Staff and Supervisor Training
We are flexible. We can design specific training modules for your individual organization or you can choose from an array of modules we have already developed and will customize to your organizations needs. Examples include: Supervisor Training: Avoidance of Sexual Harassment (AB 1825) Supervisor 101 (Labor Compliance, ADA, Workplace Violence) Hiring and Interviewing Coaching and Counseling Employees Motivating Employees Performance Evaluation Skills Communication & Conflict Management Skills Time Management Change Management Leadership Organizational Effectiveness

Turnover costs the company a minimum of $20,000 per position. That can quickly eat up your profits. We carefully analyze your organization and design employee retention solutions.
