HR Assessments Generate Results

In this ever-changing employment law regulatory environment, it’s all too easy to overlook new court rulings and changes to law that cause your policies and procedures to become non-compliant or problematic.

Human resources is an integral part of every organization. Whether you are a for-profit, nonprofit, church, ministry, or academic institution, court rulings on employment matters can cost you substantial dollars.

Read these employment law court outcomes to understand the totality and seriousness of what your organization faces.

Many leaders only focus beyond the everyday demands of running their organizations when faced with an organizational crisis, such as substantial employment litigation. By then it’s too late.

Much like annual financial audits, proactive organizations conduct third-party annual human resource assessments. Assessing your human resource practices can help prevent the unnecessary painful costs associated with employee complaints, equal employment opportunity (EEO) charges, and litigation.

In HIS Name HR guides you through a comprehensive HR assessment. Working with your in-house HR Representatives, In HIS Name HR highlights both areas of excellence and those at risk of potential exposure, and suggests simple, effective strategies necessary to effectively implement change.
