Organizational Audit & Analysis
Organizations keep up with change through analyzing and modifying practices and procedures. CMA can objectively assess an organization’s needs. One of our consultants will meet with the client company to clearly identify the areas of concern. After concerns are clearly defined, we collect information by auditing and reviewing internal records, interviewing employees, utilizing questionnaires, and leveraging other diagnostic tools. The information gathered is then closely analyzed. Our findings and final recommendations are submitted to management. We are then available to help coach you through implementing recommendations. Finally, we will follow up on the effectiveness of our involvement.
The thoughts and opinions of an organization’s workforce are important indicators in determining what issues, both positive and negative, are currently facing your business. Our consultants, working closely with an organization’s senior managers, will set the stage for the gathering of valued employee opinions.
Employee Law Compliance and Audit
- Personnel Policies
Employee handbook review/design is customized and developed based on your business needs. The employee handbook is one of the most important communication tools between your company and your employees. Not only does it set forth your expectations for your employees, but it also describes what they can expect from the company. Personnel policies should be one of the first formal communications that you will have with an employee. Misunderstandings or misstatements can create legal liabilities for your business. Through procedure development you can diminish your liability. Are you covered?
- Standard Operating Procedure Development
Supervisor handbook is customized and developed based on your companies management needs. The supervisor handbook is an outline of standard operating procedures that assist your managers in the day to day company operations that may include: how to deal with employee relations issues, company policy procedures, and disciplinary measures, how to conduct harassment investigations, how to conduct interviews, and how to conduct performance evaluations. This handbook is a guide for supervisors to effectively manage their employees.
New Hire Orientation
On-boarding programs are an important component for reducing future employee performance problems and turnover. We can create a program for your company to integrate an employee into their new role. Most employers spend significant time and resources on the recruiting and hiring process to find the right candidate for their company. But the process does not end once the new employee has been hired. CMA can help insure the initial fit becomes permanent and is validated through above average performance and teamwork.
Through job analysis, CMA can help your company define the responsibilities, requirements, and functions of a position. The result is an accurate job description, serving as a critical component for both employee and manager to insure clarity of roles and expectations.
Performance Appraisal Programs
Do you have a performance appraisal program? Formal performance appraisal programs are key to the framework of an organization and its productivity. We can review and develop a documented process of the performance of workers, professionals, and other staff members of your organization.
Succession planning is a critical part of an organization’s ability to reduce risk by focusing on leadership continuity. CMA’s succession planning program insures that senior leadership and HR professionals develop a succession plan which:
- Prepares current employees to assume key roles.
- Plans for needed recruitment and staffing, with improved retention.
- Improves performance and compensation management.
- Reviews current and predicts future workforce requirements.
Human resources compliance is a requirement for any business in today’s regulated environment. A business that is not aware of its legal responsibilities is headed for trouble. CMA can help you with our quick on-line sexual harassment and workplace violence webinars. These programs create an “awareness” of what is and what is not appropriate behavior in the workplace. The training and its comprehension test can provide one of the few legal defenses if an accusation is made. It is as simple as logging on to our website, watching the webinar, and taking the test. The results are emailed directly to the supervisor to file in the employment record. Without formal prevention training, your business is at risk.
