HR Fractional Support Services

As small businesses grapple with labor shortages, recruiting needs, rising benefit costs and retaining employees, the ability to access HR support in a cost effective manner is becoming more and more essential. Most small businesses, however, can't afford a full-time, dedicated HR executive. 

Led by Beth Terry, a seasoned HR executive with over 20 years of experience supporting business leaders, our HR fractional practice provides small businesses with access to HR resources, support, benefit planning, change management and talent acquisition and development. Through this offering, small businesses can have an HR executive on their team, without incurring the cost of a full-time HR employee.

General HR Management Support

The day-to-day management of people can be overwhelming for a business. Through in-person and video conferencing, our services can help address your general employee HR needs. We provide support in areas such as employee relations, management coaching, compliance questions and communication strategy development and messaging recommendations.

With these added resources, leaders can focus on business priorities while still supporting the needs of their teams and personnel.

Talent Aquisition and Management

The current labor market has created one of the most competitive environments for recruiting and keeping talent in over a decade. Now, more than ever, having the right strategy and ability to execute is a critical business function.

On top of that, talent management is one of the most time intensive aspects of any business or organization. Time that you don’t always have. Our team has over 25 years of experience hiring and managing people. From company value propositions and job description creation, to inquiry management, negotiation, on-boarding, team development and coaching, our team can help you access and develop the necessary talent for you to achieve your business goals.

Performance Management and Compensation

Having consistent policies and practices in place is critical for every organization. Ensuring the effective application of them, even more so. As a small business or organization needing support, you’re probably spending too much time searching for best practices or finding it hard to find time to complete employee goal setting, compensation analysis and performance reviews. Our services can offer easy access to industry standards, saving you time and money.

Benefit Research and Analysis

People join organizations for many reasons. Salary is just one of the factors considered by candidates. However, today, benefits are becoming more and more costly to maintain, putting significant pressure on the bottom line.

Our services offer organizations the opportunity to research and review potential benefit packages that can create added incentives for your team, but not exhaust your budget. Through our network of agents, we are able to identify potential options for consideration and make recommendations on next steps.

Develop Your People

Building your team, improving their skills, developing their talents creates a vibrant culture where people want to work. Front line managers make the biggest difference. We are able to offer the leading management assessment tool, The Wiley CheckPoint 360°.™, providing organizations with the opportunity to develop front-line managers and leaders, using data and reliable feedback.

What Is It?

The CheckPoint 360° survey combines feedback from direct reports, peers, supervisors, and even others who work with your leaders to help leaders and managers improve their performance and deliver on strategic goals

Why Is It Valuable?

When managers and leaders operate effectively, teams and individual employees thrive. But when they don’t, organizations suffer.

Survey results highlight a manager’s performance across eight management competencies: communication, leadership, adaptability, task management, relationships, production, development of others, and personal development.

What Do We Do With It?

CBV utilizes the survey feedback to identify talents, talent gaps, and focus areas to build personalized development plans. It also helps determine alignment opportunities between the leader and the organizational strategy..

This feedback, survey and coaching provides a personalized approach for developing leadership skills and improving job performance.
