EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK DEVELOPMENT
Your employee handbook is an essential tool. It is the most effective way to communicate policies and procedures, share company values and expectations, and improve employee relations.
The Works Consulting reviews your existing employee handbook and makes revisions to ensure that all policies are in compliance with current laws. The review includes:
· State and federal employment policies
· Rules and regulations
· Guidance with regards to work-related behaviors
· Information on compensation strategies and benefits
We can also help you develop an employee handbook that is unique to your company culture and meets your specific needs. The many benefits of creating a comprehensive employee handbook include:
· Providing employees with vital information, such as company history, traditions, growth,
mission, values, and vision
· Providing a resource that answers many recurring questions employees have about company
· Setting guidelines for performance and stating the potential consequences of behavior, both
positive and negative, in the workplace
· Eliminating gray areas so that everyone has a clear understanding of the rules and can expect
to be treated fairly and equally
· Informing employees of company benefits, such as holidays, vacation, personal days, and
HUMAN RESOURCES POLICY DEVELOPMENT
Sound human resources policy development is vital for an organization to provide a framework for effectively governing its employee relations. The Works Consulting creates human resources policies and procedures manuals that are uniquely tailored to your company’s culture and goals. We focus on policies originally developed for the employee handbook. Then we expand on them to provide a comprehensive guide for human resources and managers throughout your organization.
Our carefully written and legally researched human resources policies and procedures manual instructs both management and employees as to what is expected of them—in black and white. It is the best way to avoid misunderstandings and potential legal issues.
Managers are more likely to consistently apply policies and procedures—and employees are more likely to adhere to them—when they are clearly communicated in writing and are made widely available. In addition, results-oriented policies and procedures will help you avoid many common human resources problems such as low morale, turnover, and absenteeism.
HUMAN RESOURCES DEPARTMENT SETUP
Setting up a human resources department can be a daunting task for any new company, but it is a critical component of employee welfare and general business administration regardless of size. The Works Consulting takes the stress out of the process by working with small and growing companies to efficiently set up their human resources functions.
We can help with your human resources needs on an ongoing basis, or we can turn it over to you when you’re ready to hire a full-time human resources professional.
Our primary goal is to put into place all of the systems and processes necessary to get your human resources department setup and running smoothly. Set up includes:
· New employee packets
· Employee file setup
· Workers compensation and safety
· Job description design
· Reviewing current costs, structure, and compensation
· Working with your current broker or helping you select one that will assist with health benefit
· Analyzing current benefit plans and evaluating cost and coverage
· Standardization of all files and forms
· Creating policy and procedure manual
· New hire orientation programs
· Succession planning
· Recruiting procedures
We provide a detailed assessment of your existing human resources functions and recommend areas that should be added or improved. We work to ensure that you’re in compliance with all regulations and that you’re providing employees with the best possible benefits.
When we set up your human resources department we focus on aligning your human resources strategy with your company’s goals. Our approach also ensures that your human resources function establishes a healthy workplace for your employees to support continued growth.
PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Implementing a meaningful performance management system is crucial for every successful company. The Works Consulting creates an entire system for managing the performance of your employees that is specifically tailored to integrate with your company’s culture, philosophy, and goals. When employees possess a clear understanding of their position and responsibilities in relation to your company’s overall mission, they perform better and strengthen your business.
A performance management system that is truly aligned with your company’s vision ensures that you have an objective process for hiring the right people for every position. We work with you to develop a results-driven system that is linked to actual job content and specifications. This maximizes productivity and ultimately helps you manage employees more effectively.
Our straightforward approach to setting achievable goals, monitoring milestones, and measuring results creates an interactive system for providing and receiving feedback. This, in turn, produces better employees and a stronger organization.
The Works Consulting has extensive recruiting experience and in-depth knowledge of the job market. We know your company deserves outstanding employees, so we specialize in identifying and placing great people in the right jobs. We can manage the entire recruiting process for you, or only the tasks you don’t want to perform yourself.
