Our contracted service of an onsite HR Professional includes:
Human Resources Audit
A Human Resources Audit is a process where everything related to the people in your organization is evaluated - policies, procedures, documents, systems and practices. An audit will discover not only the strengths in the people-side of your business, but will also highlight areas for improvement, and what is missing. Once the audit is complete, we will share a list of areas/items to improve and we will work with you to ensure all bases are covered.
Properly written job descriptions are a meaningful tool for managing employee performance. Everyone knows what is expected of each role and there will be surprises. An effective job description is also important when recruiting. It gives a clear picture to the candidate of the skill set required and what kind of tasks they can be expected to perform. Together we will craft meaningful, and effective job descriptions.
We will work with you to ensure every new hire is the right fit for your company, for your team, and for the role.
Once we have an accepted offer from our top candidate, we need to plan for a proper onboarding, to ensure they have a great "new employee" experience. Is their workspace ready for them? What is the plan for their first day? Their first week? We will help you put a plan together and get all the required paperwork organized.
Your corporate policies establish the rules of conduct within your organization and outline everyone's responsibilities. Policy development usually starts with an audit to determine what policies you currently have, and areas that are lacking. Utilizing best practices, we will work with you to ensure your policies meet the legislative requirements (where applicable) and craft new policies to shape how you want things to operate within your business.
360° Feedback is a tool used to help employees recognize their strengths and weaknesses and how they can become more effective. Through this process, employees receive anonymous feedback from the people they work with (peers, direct reports and the employee's manager). This allows employees to better understand how they are perceived by others and highlight areas for improvement.
Regular communication with your employees is one of the keys to employee retention. Keeping your employees in the loop on what is happening in your organization fosters a sense of belonging and gives employees a sense of ownership over their role within your business. We will work with you to create a communication plan for your employees.
An Employee Handbook is a great tool for helping new employees get a sense of "knowing the ropes" of your organization. It is also an effective communication piece for those not-so-new employees - it acts as a reminder of workplace policies, reinforces your corporate culture, and gives a sense of belonging.
Wondering what is on your employees' minds? Or how they would feel about some changes you are planning to implement? We can design and roll out a confidential employee survey, tabulate the results and provide you with a full report. We will be happy to then work with you on addressing any issues that arose.
Performance management is vital to the success of your organization. We can develop a program unique to your organization, to help you evaluate and manage the performance of your employees.
Did you know that according to the Conference Board of Canada, only 40% of employers track employee attendance? Even less track the associated costs!
We will help you put in place an excellent attendance management program, and depending on your needs. We can manage it for you or we will be happy to teach you how to do it yourself. We guarantee that this program, once implemented and communicated correctly to your employees, will result in a reduction of incidental employee absenteeism.
Workers Compensation claims can cost your company a LOT of money. If managed well, you can reduce costs and limit an employee's total number of days lost. Short Term and Long Term Disability claims can be very time-consuming to manage. Let us show you how to control costs, reduce days lost, and get your employees back into the workplace.
Are you ready if one of your key employees leaves your organization? It's important to have a succession plan in place, in the event you are faced with this situation. Armed with your list of key employees, we can work with you to put a plan in place to get employees who are ready for the next phase in their career, ready to take that step.
Training Gap Analysis
Don't know where to start? We can begin with an inventory of current skills in your organization, and look at what skills are required to move your business forward. We can then design a training plan to fill the gap.
