Non-compliance with California Labor Law can be costly. We highly recommend an HR Audit as the first step in determining your company’s compliance status and other human resources needs.
During an HR Audit, South Bay HR consultants will take a comprehensive look at how your company is operating from a human resources perspective. We’ll examine your processes and procedures for recruiting, hiring, onboarding, performance evaluations, disciplinary action, termination, etc. From that, we will establish a baseline from which improvements can be made, not only for compliance, but also to help you implement best practices.
An HR Audit will identify gaps in your HR processes, help you implement solutions and establish a structure moving forward to minimize risk, stay in compliance with the law, and recruit and retain the best talent for your team.
Our HR consultants can help your growing company move forward in the right direction. Contact us to schedule an HR Audit for your business.
For most growing businesses, having a full-time human resources department is not financially feasible. But if you get into trouble, pleading ignorance to the State of California is a hopeless strategy. It is important to seek professional human resources expertise to stay in compliance.
That’s where South Bay HR can help. Since 2005, South Bay HR consultants help growing companies throughout Southern California avoid risk and stay on the right side of California’s complex labor laws.
Whether you need ongoing HR support or just a little help with an emerging issue or project, we provide customized HR consulting services to meet your business’ specific needs. We offer flexible pricing options, including hourly rates, per project rates and package pricing.
Our areas of expertise include:
- Onboarding & Terminations
- Employee Relations
- Performance Management & Performance Evaluation
If you have employees, you need an employee handbook. An up-to-date employee handbook is the most important HR tool a company can have.
We partner with an employment law attorney to provide a quality customizable template that has been rigorously prepared and reviewed by legal experts.
We take that template to our clients and we work side by side with them to tailor it to the specific needs of their organizations.
Recruiting, Hiring & Staffing
We don’t just help you fill jobs; we help you find the best candidates to join your team. Our process is more cost-effective and more personal than hiring a typical outside recruiter.
As HR professionals, our priority is not just to fill your position. We want to ensure that the person hired is the right fit for your organization.
Our HR consultants can help you create a job description and target the right places to post the position. We’ll also screen the applicants that come in, sending your hiring manager only the top applicants to be interviewed.
Our process saves time and money, and helps identify the best potential employees for your organization.
If your company does not have an internal HR Department, outsourcing benefits administration is a smart use of resources. It’s also a huge time-saver. Let a South Bay HR consultant handle your health insurance and 401k benefits administration for you.
During open enrollment, we will work closely with your health insurance broker to make sure all of your employees have turned in their forms and that any changes have been communicated to your carrier.
We can also conduct benefits orientations for new employees. We’ll make sure they understand the benefits the company offers and get them enrolled in the programs.
When an employee is hired, gets a raise or becomes eligible for benefits, changes to your payroll records must be made. A South Bay HR consultant can take care of the administrative part of that, making changes for you and keeping track of your records to ensure that they are always up to date.
When an employee is injured on the job, the primary goal should be getting him or her back to work as soon as possible. Open workers’ compensation claims can cost your business in lost time, employee morale and higher workers’ comp premiums.
We manage workers’ compensation claims. Our services include investigating the accident or injury, filing the claim with your insurance provider, providing notices to your injured worker and serving as a liaison with your claims adjuster.
A South Bay HR consultant can help you minimize lost time and get your employee back to work.
Successful businesses invest in employee training. Our HR consultants can help ensure that your managers have the training they need to perform at their highest level. We offer workshops that cover a variety of HR topics including: HR compliance for managers, performance management, effective communication and interviewing skills.
We also offer specialized training for internal human resources staff. These sessions provide the basics that every HR associate needs to know to be effective in his or her job. We also provide continuing education on specific HR issues and referrals to go-to resources on HR topics.
Where will your company be tomorrow? What will you need to get there? If the answers to those questions are dependent on a change in your staffing situation, you need an HR strategy. Whether your company is growing, restructuring or downsizing, an HR strategy will help you manage your company’s current and future HR needs.
A South Bay HR consultant can work with you to develop a plan that takes your “big picture” into account. From administrative details to implementing policies and processes and projecting future staffing needs, we’ll help you bring your business’ future into focus.
A lot of what we do can be done remotely, but sometimes it’s important to have an HR presence onsite. One of our HR consultants can be onsite when you need us to be involved in hiring and onboarding, performance evaluations and terminations, or to provide your employees with in-person access to an HR professional to ask questions or talk through any issues that they have.
