Human Resources Management

Human resources management simply means matching the right person to the right job. It is the primary objective of any human resource manager. If you have a company of highly trained, well informed, and happy staff, you would control the best place to work in the whole wide world.

Job Descriptions

Item Tracking

Job descriptions act as the framework for the relationship between the employer and employee. It is the starting point for the human resources officer in addressing proper matching of needs and resources. If properly written, the description acts as reference material for recruiting the best candidate, gauges job performance, identifies the career path and reduces risk of discrimination and unfair labor practices.

I-9 Compliance

I-9

To ensure that only individuals that are legally allowed to work get to work, the federal government mandates completing a Form I-9 for every new hire. The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) requires employers to verify that the potential hire is allowed to work in the United States.

Age Discrimination – Small Business Impact

Age Discrimination

The Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967 (ADEA) is a federal law that protects workers age 40 and older. It is administered and enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The goal of the Act is to provide equal opportunity for citizens age 40 and older. The Act does generally exclude small businesses and this article is written to guide the small business owner, specifically the human resources manager in regards to the impact the Act has on your small business operation.

The Key Man

Key Man

One of the most misunderstood principles of business deals with the one or few individuals in a small business operation who are critical to operations. This individual is referred to as the Key Man. The best example is that of the primary wage earner in the family unit. 

Develop a Position Profile

Position Profile

The primary goal of the Human Resources Department is to match the best person to the job in the company. This maximizes both effectiveness and efficiency for the company. In order to achieve the best matching of resources to the positions in the company, the human resources director should develop a position profile. This profile identifies the job title, describes the job in detail, pinpoints the best hours of work, defines the duties, and sets out the skills needed to perform the job.

The True Cost of Labor

Cost of Labor

I laugh at the definition of labor costs because in my opinion the so called experts only have it half right. Labor costs are more than just gross wages and benefits. It should include the costs of insurance, employer taxation, human resources management and incentives. All of the costs associated with delivering the human element of service should be included. Let’s explore these costs from the most expensive to the least.
