Outdated policies that aren't compliant with new employment laws, practices inconsistent with written policies creating discrimination claims, or confusion created from lack of clear expectations - an employee handbook can either help you or hurt you.
We are here to help you create structure and expectations for success, advise you on matching your practices with your policies, and create a handbook that not only reduces risk but is uniquely crafted for your branding and culture.
For a fraction of the cost of hiring an individual HR professional, you receive the continuity and peace of mind you have an entire team of HR experts available to serve your business. With over 38 years of experience, HR Branches Gold package makes HR accessible and affordable for small businesses.
