Last month, Jean and Steve talked about a new partnership between The Janitorial Store and my company, EMPO Corporation, an HR Outsourcing, Professional Employer Organization. As part of our partnership, we will be engaging EMPO experts to provide information and advice each month to help you navigate the HR waters which we all know can be choppy at best.Although our goal is to offer information to help you with your HR challenges, if you're like many business owners, you may want some additional help. Face it...you didn't get into the cleaning business because you want to spend your day handling employee questions and issues. You probably got into the business because you saw an opportunity to start your own company, grow it, and make a good profit.
That's why many companies like The Janitorial Store outsource their HR to EMPO. With clients nationwide, EMPO knows the laws, challenges and opportunities of working with employees. EMPO handles back office HR tasks so that The Janitorial Store can focus on operating and growing its business. EMPO also ensures that Jean and Steve as business owners are compliant and protected, and as our VP of HR says..."We help companies stay out of court!"
Outsourcing HR includes payroll administration, employee benefits and workers comp procurement and administration, safety programs, as well as employee handbooks, job descriptions, sexual harassment training, and other compliance. Visit this page for a complete list.
Whether you choose to outsource or handle HR internally, you'll want to make sure you put your employees first. Because valued employees are more productive, positive and stay around a lot longer. Which is just what you need to grow your business and help it become profitable, right?
Below is a list of the HR topics we plan to address in the next 6 months or so. But please don't hold us to the calendar. We want to make sure that we tackle topics that are timely and relevant..so we reserve the right to change topics as things change around us. And of course, if you have any topics you'd like us to discuss, please let us know.Jan How to Hire
