HR Audit

A business’ Human Resources department is pretty complex. Not only do they take care of a lot of the inner workings of your company, but they also have to keep up with ever-changing federal and state employment regulations.

One of the best ways to ensure your HR department is running at its most efficient and you’re compliant with all legal requirements is to undergo an HR audit

Conducting an HR audit, or operational review, is the first step in discovering where your company is at risk and exactly how to fix it before it is too late. An audit will review all areas of your Human Resource practices, procedures, and policies. 

At Integrity HR, we start by giving you a detailed checklist so you understand everything before we start. Just a few of the areas we’ll look at include your HR strategy, employee recruitment, company culture, and regulation compliance. Plus, we won’t leave you hanging. After making sure your HR is both compliant and efficient, we will give you a detailed report on how to fix any issues that may have come up.

Employee Handbook Creation

Whether you need a brand-new employee handbook or just an update, Integrity HR has you covered. A well-put-together handbook is essential to preventing mishaps and keeping up with how your business runs day-to-day. Without one, you could be at risk for costly lawsuits and an inefficient company.

With a proper handbook, your risk is reduced, you have better peace of mind knowing your company is compliant, your policies will be more consistent across your entire organization, and you’ll see a rise in employee morale. There are no downsides to a properly maintained handbook. Let us help you better protect you, your company, and your employees with a great employee handbook.

Building Small Business HR Strategy

The HR industry is always evolving and so is your company. That means the same Human Resources strategy won’t work decade after decade. Keeping up with the latest trends and strategies will allow you to turn your HR department into a profit center for your business. 

Your HR strategy can be maximized with the help of strategic Human Resources consulting services. Not only will a great strategy help you keep up with laws and regulations, but it will also help you stand out from the crowd.

In order for your business to succeed in the long term, a thorough HR strategy is necessary. Integrity HR consulting services can help you accomplish the goals of your company while taking a hard look at every aspect of your Human Resources department. This will save you time and money in the long run, ensure the success of your employees, and maintain efficient HR operations.

All of the HR projects we address are designed to alleviate the burden of HR on your business’s resources and leadership and make sure that your HR initiatives align with your organization’s overall mission and strategic goals.

Unbundling from a PEO

If you are already in a PEO contract, there are substantial considerations involved in getting out. You must have a checklist and some guidance in the timing and proper replacement of benefits, payroll, and taxes. There is hope for a smooth transition if you prepare early, develop a competent team of professionals, and prepare a good implementation plan.

An annual audit is a good practice for any Human Resources team using a PEO to make sure you are getting the value they promised. 

If you decide that moving away from a PEO is right for your business Integrity HR is here to help you build the best exit strategy.

Recruiting Services

Having a great team on your side is one of the best ways to ensure success in your company. You not only need to recruit the best to your team, but you also want to retain them. 

We offer professional recruiting services to help you attract experienced, top-quality employees who fit-in well with your company culture. We have certified assessment professionals on our professional recruiting team to present you with the best candidates for the position.

We’ll save you time and money and make sure you’re complying with every regulation. Plus, with a company like Integrity HR on your side, you can rest assured knowing your new employees will want to work for you, too.

Employee Training

You want your employees to do their jobs to the best of their abilities, and your employees want to feel confident and equipped to handle any situation. That’s where employee training and education come in. Quality training is essential to create a high-performance organization.

Training programs are proven to not only increase performance but also motivation levels, employee retention, and the long-term bottom line of the company. Integrity HR can help you achieve this. Our team of experienced HR professionals is here to offer a wide variety of training options.

Compensation Benchmarking

It should come as no surprise that the way you choose to compensate your employees has an effect on performance. Compensation doesn’t just include salary, however. Integrity HR offers detailed compensation consulting services to help you find the sweet spot that keeps your employee performance high and benefits your company too.

There is a lot that goes into finding the best compensation for everyone. It can sometimes be difficult for an organization to figure out what to pay their employees, especially when mixing in alternative forms of compensation such as retirement benefits, health insurance, expense accounts, and company vehicles. 

Integrity HR’s Compensation Benchmarking services will compare the characteristics of your company and positions to different areas of your market and create a compensation benchmark based on those data points.

A properly designed compensation structure built around industry research is a vital step to attract, retain, and motivate employees. The investment in knowing what your employees are worth and how they stack up against the competition is well worth it. 

Succession Planning

Planning for the succession of your business is the best way to ensure your company’s future. Every company, no matter the size, should have a plan in place to assist with continuity, morale, and other key factors. Integrity HR can help you create a strategic succession plan that helps you to identify critical jobs, potential successors, and skills gaps, while also minimizing disruption to business.

Our goal is to find the best solutions for both your employees and the continuation of your company. 

We want you to have a smooth transition when leadership changes happen in your business. That’s why our strategy for planning a succession is so thorough. We take a look at all the ins and outs of your business, identify the most important positions and employees, and more before helping you transition your organization.

Performance Management

Managing the performance of your employees is critical to achieving high performance, and an effective system has plenty of benefits that make putting one in place well worth it. 

Integrity HR can help you design a performance management system that will ensure you are getting the most out of your employees.

Implementing an effective performance management system can make your employees feel appreciated, free up management time, and outline expectations. Even spending a small amount of time on performance management can have a large impact on the overall performance of your employees. And with better performance from your employees comes a better bottom line for your company.

Leadership Development

The only thing you need to know about leadership development and performance coaching is that it dramatically improves your organization’s bottom line. While some businesses may need coaching to address work-related issues, more often than not these individuals already have potential, they just need help tapping into it.

At Integrity HR, we work with future leaders to help improve their intrapersonal skills, interpersonal skills, and organizational skills. Changing one person’s outlook on one of these areas can have a positive effect on the entire company’s performance.
