We are committed to providing a solution tat solves your complex human resource problems and needs.
As an HR consultant, I receive a variety of questions from clients concerning the HR function within the organization. Most of these questions come from small business owners who are trying to understand the myriad of laws and regulations they must follow concerning record keeping and employee management. New laws and rulings come out on a daily basis, and it can be a full-time job just to keep track of the changes that occur within the HR landscape. The most common questions I am asked include: “What laws and regulations are applicable to my business? Does the Family Medical Leave Act apply to my business? What about the Equal Opportunity Employment Act? What am I required to keep in my employee files? And how long do I keep it?”
There are many questions and issues that arise when looking at the HR needs of an organization. For many of these questions, however, the answer varies based upon the business. Even a law such as FMLA may or may not apply to your company, even if you have 50 or more employees. In addition, each company has its own culture, policies and procedures that have a profound impact on the effectiveness of the organization.
A comprehensive HR system will not only fulfill your compliance and legal requirements, but also foster and develop a strong, efficient workforce that allows your business to grow. Many business owners are concerned about the complexities of HR systems but they do not need to be cumbersome as long as they are designed to meet the unique needs of your organization. If you need help navigating the world of human resources, please contact H&S Companies and we’ll develop a solution that fits your business needs.
