Talent Management is an all-encompassing description of a company’s challenge to attract, retain and manage their workforce. The landscape of Talent Management is fraught with peaks and valleys related to inter-personal relationship issues and directly intersects with corporate financial and cultural goals.
Often a company’s decision to effectively attract and retain competent and engaged employees requires a competitive compensation and benefits package which can easily take up as much as 50% of the cost of goods sold. In addition a company’s failure to address compliance issues is not only costly to the bottom line but can also negatively impact branding, ability to attract necessary talent and a company’s ‘good will’ value. Activ:8 works hand in hand with originations to manage these costs and balance it with attracting engaged employees. Here is a sample of a few services we can provide:
Working in conjunction with your management team Activ:8 will identify the necessary knowledge and skills at a price conducive to a company’s financial growth. We develop job descriptions, assist in assigning efficient and productive reporting relationships and in some instances identify less than productive contributors resulting in improvement plans that are not only defensible but provide dignity should separation be necessary.
Many organizations are not fully aware of the laws and regulations pertaining to Employment that can adversely impact the company’s ability to operate efficiently and profitably. Unfortunately some companies apply the rules and regulations of financial reporting to its human resources and are shocked to discover they are not in compliance.
Few organizations are aware of which compensation and benefits are most important to the talent pool they are trying to recruit from. Should we have an incentive program? Should we offer family medical coverage and at what percent? Does a 401(k) appeal to our younger recruits? Do we have employees over 65 who could be eligible for Medicare and still work full time?
Many organizations are unaware of the technology behind Human Resources today and missing the basic tools to formulate a long term, let alone a short term plan, for attracting, retaining and maintaining a productive and profitable work force. Activ:8 works closely with management to identify metrics and the technology to support these measures.
Don’t let the government catch you being ‘non-compliant. Activ:8 will conduct an in-depth audit of your Human Resources function to insure you are meeting all mandated document control such as I-9’s, Personnel Files, Worker Compensation Files, etc.
The old adage, “You can’t manage what you do not measure” is a business truism. We work with management to identify process and procedures to measure and to improve performance of employees that is directly tied to the success of the business.
