What is the purpose of a human resource consultant?

Our human resource consultants provide HR outsourcing so that you do not have to hire a complete human resources team. We can work with your current HR clerk and HR department to fill certain gaps within your organization so that you can spend your time and energy managing and growing your business.

What are the main benefits of outsourcing HR?

As a business owner, you may not be familiar with many of the rules, regulations, and laws regarding employment practices that include hiring, terminations, payroll, and paid/unpaid leaves of absence.

Failing to comply with just one of the many federal, state, and local laws can be costly. These unintentional negative consequences and potentially devastating setbacks to your business come in the form of lawsuits, legal actions, and fines.

Outsourcing HR functions provides many benefits, including:

  • Save time
  • Prevent costly mistakes
  • Avoid legal issues

…All of which will provide you with the ability to focus more time and effort on growing your business!

What does HR consulting include?

Our human resource consultants provide HR outsourcing so that you do not have to hire a complete human resources team. We can take care of the paperwork. If you have no HR clerk, we can remotely handle everything HR related, from new hires to safety programs and compliance. Or, if you have an HR clerk or office manager, we can provide the tools and support to help that person manage the responsibility.

We’re always ready to roll up our sleeves and get working right alongside your team- even if your operational hours fall outside of our operational hours. Here are just a few things that we've helped businesses with:

  • Obtaining and maintaining MIOSHA safety compliance
  • Develop a comprehensive employee compensation plan
  • Ensure legal compliance in the state of Michigan
  • Provide a simple step-by-step process for completing I-9s

Sage's Professional HR Service Plans include:

  • Initial compliance audit
  • Access to Sage's online compliance toolkit
  • Personalize ongoing HR support
  • Constant monitoring of regulatory and legal compliance

What actions would you recommend as a human resource consultant and why?

Because every industry has its own unique set of requirements, our initial audit will identify the tools your business needs. If you simply need a screwdriver, we will happily provide the screwdriver. If you need a hammer, we’ve got that too.

Sage can partner with your administrative personnel to provide simple tool kits for compliance with many of the reporting requirements. Our starting point is to perform a complimentary audit. We’ll provide a detailed document with areas of concern, recommended solutions, and things you must do immediately to avoid penalties.

How do I get an HR assessment for my business?

At Sage Solutions Group we offer a FREE human resources assessment. We will talk to you about your needs, take a look at the paperwork you have so far, and provide you with a report that will give you a great understanding of where you need to be to avoid legal penalties.

Simply take a moment to fill out our request form and we’ll contact you right away to get the ball rolling!
