Employment Job Add and Posting Services
Attracting the right individual to the job is like attracting the right buyers to your house. A well thought out job posting attracts people for all the right reasons. A job advertisement is something that is selling your business and location to potential candidates. It’s also important to think about where you choose to advertise future positions. We can take the stress out of creating the job advertisement by doing that for you. We would then post it on various networks and/or job boards to find the right person to help you.
Employment Agreements, Surveys
Employment Agreements are a contract between a new employee and the employer. It includes details such as compensation, limitations, training, vacations, etc. This contract is usually set for a trial or probationary period of six months to a year. We can help you design these agreements, taking into consideration the corresponding provincial employment laws.
Employee surveys are valid tools used in business to gauge and measure moral, performance, supervisory impacts, and working conditions. Employees are often appreciative of surveys that allow them to have a voice in their workplace.
Employee Manuals, Training Materials
Once you start hiring employees, you will need to create a training manual or policy handbook. We will work with you to make sure all adequate information is included in the manual and provide you with an outline for review. We will work with you every step of the way until these valuable resources are in the hands of your new employees.
Hiring and On-boarding for Human Resources
From the offers, employee agreements, contracts, to mandatory paper work, we have you covered. An effective on-boarding program is like creating a road map for your new employee, which helps with training and retentions. Our VA’s will help you design this “map” that reflects the culture of your business and makes hiring a breeze.
Benefit, Wage, Personnel Management
An employee’s total compensation package should be reviewed on a regular basis by human resources to ensure that wage, extended health coverage, and other benefits are in line with the cost of living. This is what helps to attract employees to your business, motivates them to work efficiently, and often retains their talents over the years. Our VA’s will work with you to look at the industry standards and individual employee’s need, as we understand that it’s not a one size fits all type of program.
Employee Recognition Programs
When employees are recognized or rewarded for reaching specific goals or personal successes, they tend to be more engaged in their job. Recognition is important to reinforce positive behavior. Let our VA’s create a recognition program to meet the needs of your company and keeps your employees feeling valued.
Employee Wellness Programs
An occupational wellness program can help employees make smart and healthy choices that can benefit the employer through lower medical costs. Healthier employees tend to be happier and more engaged, which results in lower absenteeism in the workplace.
Our specialized wellness VA’s will work with you to assess the employees’ needs and create a list of programs and services to meet those needs. We then work with local professionals to execute the services either directly in the office, or a common community space. Program and service offerings vary from business to business but can include smoking cessation programs, financial workshops, walking programs, mobile mammography, blood pressure clinics, flu shot clinics, and personal fitness training.
