Manager and Employee Training – Why?


Managers & Employees Not Trained…What Could Possibly Go Wrong?
By: Melissa Marsh, MA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

Training is often low on a company’s priority list…then there’s a problem…and then it’s too late. Avoid the need for damage control by ensuring your most valuable assets understand their roles and responsibilities. Managers and employees are often unaware that their actions may lead to big problems. Consider these questions when you are determining whether or not you need training in your organization:

  • Did a manager violate a Nevada or Federal employment law?
  • Did a manager ignore an employee when the employee mentioned that they hurt themselves on the job? If the manager didn’t ignore it, did they handle it correctly?
  • Did a manager neglect to offer leave under FMLA or ADA when an employee may have needed it?
  • Are managers asking illegal questions when interviewing candidates?
  • How do managers and employees resolve conflict?
  • How do managers effectively handle and document performance management issues?
  • When a new employee has been hired, how is onboarding handled?
  • Are I-9s and other new-hire paperwork completed correctly and will they hold up under a governmental audit?

Working with an HR Consultant Can Be Cost Effective

HR Consultants: A Cost-Effective Option for Small Businesses
By: Melissa Marsh, MA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP

What does HR mean to you?

As a small business owner or operator, Human Resources or HR, probably equates with finding employees as quickly as possible and getting them on task right away.

What about after employees are hired?

Then, HR means dealing with small issues that pop up—and, then, turning to the Internet to educate yourself on tricky situations and hoping for the best.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Is it possible to use an HR consulting company in a cost-effective way?

HRinDemand is constantly searching for and implementing easy-to-use tools for our clients. For instance, small businesses don’t need a large, full-blown Employee Handbook. HRinDemand offers an Employee Rulebook for those employers with less than 10 employees—and it is half the cost of a full employee handbook. This way, small businesses can comply with pertinent regulations and appear professional, knowledgeable and organized from the first day a new employee starts work.

Employee Retention a Concern for Nevada Businesses

There is good news for Nevada business owners. The economy is improving. More jobs are available. Economic development is a major initiative in Northern Nevada. And, unemployment levels are dropping.

The unemployment rate in Nevada was 6.7 percent for September 2015 — unemployment has not been this low since July 2008! This is a seven-year low and it’s trending about a point lower in Northern Nevada.

Meanwhile, the number of employers continues to grow.

The combination of a lower unemployment rate and increased number of jobs means employers now need to focus on retaining employees. As opportunities abound, employees are enticed to leave. High turnover rates aren’t good for business — one employee turning over can cost a company close to $50,000 in recruiting, training and lost productivity costs.

What Can Be Done to Retain Employees?
