Like some of our other offerings, this service was also requested by a client. In spite of having multiple locations in Virginia, they did not have an HR support function anywhere in the state. Our contract calls for us to provide them help and advice in major employee performance management cases, not in everyday HR issues.
We are expanding this service in a one-year experiment to test its market feasibility, and its fit for our business. If your organization has an HR army of one, or has no HR function at all, contact us to learn more about how we may help. Or, perhaps you’d benefit from an on-demand HR Support function that’s more experienced than yours when you need it!
HR Support when you need it! And you don’t pay for it when you don’t!
The idea is that with a contract already signed and in place, you have someone to turn to quickly and easily when employee trouble comes. The contract is on-demand; you pay only for the time you use, plus expenses. The worst time to be out in the marketplace looking for help is when trouble has already arrived.
Major employee performance management cases are already stressful enough; not having help readily available on demand simply adds to the stress.
In addition, most errors made by employers when confronted by such cases are errors of omission, not commission; in other words, employers under-estimate the importance of the case, its downside risk, and in some cases its potential liability. They do nothing, or don’t take action quickly enough, compounding the problem.
We’ll help with your immediate problem. We’ll also talk with you about taking a pro-active approach with your managers and leaders, training them on the basics of such cases, including when and how to ask for help. This proven approach will prevent a lot of cases from occurring in the first place.
We invite you to be in touch with us for a confidential, no-cost, no-obligation one-hour consultation about whether or not this service may be a fit for you.
