Last week I posted a partial summary of an interview I did with Mindy Flanigan, PHR, a Human Resource Specialist with more than twenty years of experience. In this article I discuss two of the strategic ways that Mindy brings value to businesses.
One way that Mindy strengthens businesses is by helping them minimize employments law risks. As noted in my previous post there are numerous federal and state employment laws that businesses have to comply and contend with. As a human resource specialist Mindy helps businesses navigate the mind field of employment laws. For example, last week I referred a businessman to Mindy who called me wanting to know if his company could fire an employee who took an extended medical leave. The company had less than 10 employees. Although the Family and Medical Leave Act may not apply due to the company’s size, the issue is still a thorny one because other equal employment opportunity laws may need to be considered. Other laws that could be implicated by other situations include the Fair Labor Standards Act, the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
Another way that Mindy strengthens businesses is by helping them maximize employee performance, which helps to reduce employment costs. It’s no secret that it can cost thousands of dollars to replace an employee who was transferred or fired due to a mismatch between the employee’s skills and the job’s demands. Mindy’s objective is to help employers hire the best people resulting in a productive work environment. Mindy recently placed a director of land surveying with an employer who after nine months still raves about the placement.
Helping businesses minimize employment risks and maximize employee performance are two of the strategic ways that Mindy helps businesses become more profitable. To learn more about Mindy’s services visit her web site at www.inspiringhr.com. or feel free to call me with your questions.
