We provide nonprofits and small businesses effective human resources strategies and tools that will save time, engage staff and grow the organization.
We offer consultation and guidance to the nonprofit and small business owner on selective human resources strategies. Our consultative approach is based on getting to know you as a leader, your mission and the culture which is important to you, and your goals for seeking new and effective human resources strategies. Strategies along with tools to implement those strategies are intended to help save you time, engage your staff, and grow your business while managing today’s compliance environment.
Even a nonprofit or small business with only one employee needs some kind of basic employee policy handbook to explain the working relationship. As your organization grows, the need for structure and consistent practice is a must in today’s environment.
We work with you to develop policies which explain how you manage the organization. Some policies may be highly suggested while others may be optional based on your unique business.
We work with you to customize an approach to hiring staff which includes a variety of tools and checklists to recruit, hire and onboard new employees. This includes ensuring you target the right market, develop a job description and know when you are required to pay overtime, and prepare behavioral interview questions, offer letters and onboarding tools. The tools are appropriate for your organization, industry and culture.
Pay and Rewards
As part of Talent Acquisition, we help to set competitive rates of pay to hire and retain employees. This involves working with you to learn about the unique jobs in the organization, your culture and industry, and appropriate external comparators. Compliance with record keeping and paying overtime and written procedures are included.
Rewards come in many forms in any business, large or small, for-profit or nonprofit. Whether it’s the annual or yearend bonus, cash incentives for a sales force or non-cash rewards, we guide you in assessing which type of reward is appropriate. We collaborate with you to determine factors important in making the decisions.
We help you transition from the traditional performance evaluation to a customized approach based upon your unique organization. You will learn how to assess staff in a 2-way collaborative effort where the employee takes ownership for achieving joint goals and objectives and personal responsibility for growth.
Coaching New Supervisors
We work with new supervisors to coach them on communications, planning and managing staff. The supervisor sets the agenda for their growth.
The success of implementing any one of these strategies often comes down to how well the communications were delivered and received by the staff. We help to craft talking points to explain the new strategy, how it affects the staff and relates to your overall mission and culture. Timely communications lead to a more engaged staff which in turn will save you time and help you continue to grow.
