People are the lifeblood of your business. Regardless of what product or service you sell, your people are the face of your organization to your customers. They can either be your company's competitive advantage or your Achilles heel. My focus is in helping you and your teams become better leaders and managers by aligning their actions with your company's strategic goals.

Service Description

Human Resource Services:
Qualifications - currently hold a SPHR from SHRM; former HR Manager and Regional HR Manager; current HR Consultant; active member of SHRM.

I will create a personalized employee handbook for your organization based upon your organizational culture and your specific needs. The handbook may include sections on a company overview, benefits, paid time off, holidays, vacation, working conditions, categories of employment, coaching and corrective action, working rules, and privacy just to name a few options. Your handbook will be branded to your organization and will be provided to you in either PDF or Microsoft Publisher format.

If you are looking for an experienced recruiter, I offer a service rather different from most recruiting services. I start with developing a job posting with you for the position you are looking to fill. I will post your job for you, screen all of you incoming postings based upon your criteria, provide correspondence to those candidates not fitting your criteria and then forward you a packet of candidates matching your requirements.

If you run a business subject to the rules of the Department of Transportation, I can create a Drug Free Workplace Program for you to ensure your compliance with DOT standards. If you do not need a full DOT policy but are only interested in reducing your Workers Compensation insurance rates, I also offer a non-DOT policy at a reduced rate.
