Human Resources, Employees, Benefits, Compliance And More.

It’s likely that your team is your greatest asset, your greatest expense, your greatest headache, and your greatest source of accomplishment and pride. As is common, the parts of our business that require the most effort are the most rewarding.

But with all the regulation and the importance of this part of your business, don’t you want as much help as you can get? And what happens when the person doing your HR work leaves because you’ve trained them so well? Have you ever considered letting someone else provide as many solutions as possible? You’ll really like that plan when the Department of Labor auditor shows up.

Below is just a short list of our HR related services. A lot of them are included when we are your benefits provider. The rest may not be for everyone, but when you need that specialist, their value is incredible.

Employees, Human Resources, Government Regulations, Benefits and More.

Are you prepared for your Department of Labor audit? They're preparing for you

The Problem

The DOL has hired thousands of new auditors to ensure compliance with the Affordable Care Act and ERISA.  Many employers aren’t prepared for the possibility of an audit. Although many audits are triggered by an employee complaint, most are random, or triggered by a failure to file.

The Preferred Solution!

  • Our risk management and benefits divisions work together to do a compliance assessment
  • Assessment makes recommendations and identifies areas of concern
  • Full Department of Labor Audit preparation including documentation is available.
  • Audit defense and representation is also available.

It’s not a matter of if you get audited, but when. Being prepared will greatly reduce the time and expense of an audit, not to mention YOUR stress. Correcting problems early will reduce fines and penalties.

OSHA & BWC - have you thought about them lately? Are they thinking about you?

Your Problem

OSHA and The Bureau of Workers Compensation don’t just have a couple regulations, they have thousands.

  • Who can keep up with all that?
  • How do you provide all that training?
  • Is your Workers Comp rate being effected?

The Preferred Solution

We provide a huge list of services and resources. Below is just a few of our more popular solutions.

  • OSHA assessment, pre-inspection and defense
  • OSHA 10/30 Hour Training, Competent Person, Powered Industrial Truck, and Supervisor Training
  • OSHA 300 Log Requirement assessment and development
  • Post Accident Claims Investigation
  • Safety Committee formation and administration
  • Safety Manual review or development
  • Fleet Safety Program

An ounce of prevention is work a pound (or hundreds or thousands of $$$$) of cure. You can know you are proactive and ready.

Do you drug test? Is your program legal? Fair? Working?

Your Problem

You’re thinking about drug testing, or maybe you think you already are drug testing. But what about..

  • Are people cheating? Do you want them to?
  • Do you have legal guidelines? Are you following them?
  • Is this helping your staffing and safety, or creating a lawsuit?

The Preferred Solution

  • We will review your current policy, or help you create a good one.
  • We will teach how to implement it and make sure you are getting results.

Business Planning – An Outline For Getting Started

Everyone says having a plan is so important, but so many don’t have a clue where to begin and how to go about it. My plan here is to create a simple outline of the whole process, and then link to the detailed articles about each step. You don’t need to follow each step in order necessarily, but that usually works best. Also, remember this is just a guide. Don’t be afraid to do something special that fits your style, industry or needs.
