HRN Offers Comprehensive Human Resource Services

Experienced and Professional HR Consulting Services

Our consultants, working in locations across the country, are career human resource (HR) professionals with years of experience advising clients and implementing customized solutions. Our foremost goal is to understand your needs and work with you to tailor a program that meets your unique workforce management objectives.

Salary/Compensation System Design & Management

A well-designed compensation system minimizes overpayment of salaries, because the true value of jobs is known. HRN provides cost-effective, custom compensation solutions in such areas as base pay and salary structure development, incentive and bonus plans, and job market pricing.

We also offer automated Compease salary administration software that helps you develop and maintain competitive pay rates and improve employee performance through all levels of your organization.

Performance Management Programs

Performance management is not simply a once a year performance review meeting between a supervisor and employee. Rather, HRN can develop and implement a combination of company, department and individual performance programs tailored to the organization’s culture and objectives. These programs include areas such as communication, compensation & recognition, goal setting, performance measurement, coaching and development, documentation, and staffing actions.

Also provided is an optional, no-obligation overview and demonstration of Performance Pro—a powerful, and affordable online employee performance management solution.

Affirmative Action Preparation and Maintenance

Affirmative action is the set of public policies and initiatives designed to help eliminate past and present discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin. Affirmative action in the workplace covers such actions as hiring, firing, promotion, transfers, and training for protected groups of people.

Are you required to develop an Affirmative Action Program (AAP)? Under Executive Order 11246, each non-construction federal contractor/subcontractor with 50 or more employees is required to develop and maintain a written AAP if it:

  • Has a federal contract or subcontract of $50,000 or more;
  • Has government bills of lading which in any 12-month period total or can reasonably be expected to total $50,000 or more;
  • Serves as a depository of Federal funds; or
  • Is a financial institution that is an issuing and paying agent for U.S. savings bonds and savings notes.

A typical AAP takes an organization an average of 180 hours to complete and 70-80 hours each year thereafter to update in-house. HRN has AAP professionals with access to tools and resources that simplify data collection and significantly reduce the time and cost of preparing and maintaining AAPs.

Employee Opinions Surveys

Effective internal communication is an important element of business success. It helps people within an organization unite behind a shared commitment and fosters a positive work environment.

An employee survey is a dynamic two-way internal communication process that generates valuable feedback on that shared commitment and more. A survey tests employees’ grasp of company objectives and measures their attitudes about matters that affect productivity and loyalty. Survey results identify areas that shine and those that need improvement. The information also is valuable in strategic planning, as it pinpoints how to manage employee impact on company performance.

Recruiting Services

HRN offers cost-effective staff recruiting services that provide expert assistance with ad placement, evaluation of candidates, pre-interviewing of candidates and a listing of suggested candidates for your selection.

HR Systems Assessment

Existing human resource functions are reviewed and measured to ensure effectiveness and compliance. An analysis of all major areas of human resources is conducted including posting requirements, recruitment and selection, policy and procedure administration, performance management, career development, counseling and discipline, termination, compensation requirements, employment process and records access. Recommendations are developed to assist the organization in creating action steps to increase the effectiveness of its human resource function.

Also provided is an optional, no obligation overview and demonstration of HR Suite, a complete and customizable HR compliance solution. Included are: HR Policy manual for supervisors and employees, employee handbook, and an extensive library of HR forms and tools.
