Contact us for help developing necessary HR policies or to review your existing HR infrastructure.
In order to get where you want to go, your HR policies need to be in order. Through strategic planning, we help you develop policies that align with the direction of your business. From your staffing needs, to behavioral policies, to an effective growth plan, our strategic planning services ensure that your business grows in the right direction, and that your HR department grows with it.
The key to any business is the success and proficiency of its employees. We help you develop programs that encourage continued growth and education from individuals throughout your organization. By teaching and training your current employees, you’ll improve retention and create senior staff who live and breathe your company culture out of today’s new hires.
If the right person for a specific position is particularly difficult to find, or you’re concerned with creating the bandwidth to screen, interview and make offers to candidates in addition to your normal duties, allow us to handle acquisition for you. We’ll ensure job descriptions are accurate and professional, candidates are properly screened and interviewed and offers to the right individual are correctly formatted. Don’t go without critical personnel or risk hiring the wrong candidate. Contact us for an easier, more efficient talent acquisition process.
As your business grows, it’s important to take a critical eye to your organizational structure to find areas with opportunities for increased efficiency and productivity. Our organization-wide analysis allows you to pinpoint the genesis of issues related to HR, payroll or common issues within each department. We’ll also reveal bottlenecks where processes are being slowed due to over-worked employees and under-staffed divisions, or show you opportunities that are being completely neglected or missed due to a lack of critical positions or skill sets.
We offer customized solutions to help you deal with the bear of payroll. Enlist our services to co-manage payroll, or hand the entire process off to us to allow you to focus on other mission critical duties. We’ll even help you find an affordable vendor to outsource payroll duties to. Whatever your needs regarding payroll, we’re here to help.
The safety of your employees should be a primary concern and objective. That begins with creating a company-wide culture dedicated to proper safety procedures. We’ll help you develop and implement a safety plan to create this culture that ensures workers receive the necessary OSHA and safety training to perform their duties. We’ll also help you institute a reporting process for safety hazards aimed at the prevention of injuries and liability issues. With proper safety policies in place, work site accidents will be minimized. Even so, we’ll help put regulations and timelines in place to keep you compliant in the event of an accident. Additionally, we’ll apply our expertise to help you keep worker’s comp insurance premiums affordable.
In addition to proper compensation, employee retention relies on the culture and relationship you create for each individual you hire. Starting with on-boarding, we’ll assist you in creating a program that helps new hires quickly become acclimated and comfortable. We also teach your management team how to reduce employee turnover through active listening and open communication.
We also teach you how to efficiently and compliantly administer off-boarding procedures including exit interviews that help you improve your current office environment.
Other labor relations services include downsizing analysis, employee surveys and focus groups, handling negotiations with staffing agencies, and ensuring the correct procedures are taken in hiring and firing processes for full time employees, temps and contractors.
Proper benefits management results in lowering costs for current benefits packages, and improving benefits for employees through analysis, which results in better retention and a happier office. We ensure that your money is spent wisely in order to bring your employees the best benefit package possible. At CYB Human Resources, we take it a step further and assist you and your management team in preparing communications about employee benefits in order to fully educate without over promising.
In order to keep the right personnel on staff, you need to first hire the right talent, then keep those valued employees on board as they advance in their careers. That begins with creating the right job descriptions and pay structures for each position of need. We not only ensure that descriptions are written in order to bring in the right candidates, but also so they avoid discriminatory language and other common issues. Through competitive analysis, we also educate you on the wages of specific positions in order to allow you to make realistic, competitive offers to the individuals of your choice. Our services also help you stay compliant with the Fair Labor Standards Act in deciding what positions should be salaried, and what employees deserve exempt or non-exempt status.
Once employees are hired, it’s important to reward them for a job well-done. With our help, you can develop and implement reward and recognition strategies that are customized to fit your company and each of your departments. This includes bonus and compensation structures designed to keep employees working upwards and earning more.
