Human Resources Management Solutions

Whether in an association or among your members, running a business today is nothing like it was ten, twenty or thirty years ago. Whether for-profit or non-profit, the dizzying array of rules, laws, regulations, posters, handbooks and the like and the list goes on, challenges every business every day.

Most associations and small businesses cannot afford their own "HR department," or the "HR department" is the company owner or executive with too much to do already.

Do you or your members spend more time on employee and HR related issues than you spend on running and growing your business?

How can we as associations better manage our own operations and help our members manage theirs?

The gbac Association Practice Group is ready to help you and your members today. gbac HR is dedicated to filling the needs of businesses that require HR expertise but can't afford or don't require a full-time HR employee. Our goal is to take care of your human resources needs by providing support to your administrative or executive people who handle HR activities or to function as your HR department so that you can focus on growing your core business.

Regulatory Compliance

It's not just the number of state or federal laws and regulations that you need to know. Rather, it's also the number of agency administrative rulings and court cases, which add new interpretations to laws on an almost daily basis that can trip up the unsuspecting business owner and senior manager and end up subjecting the business to fines, penalties and litigation costs. We address the risks, duties and obligations clients face as plan sponsors and employers and provide an array of services that allow companies to focus their time and money on their core business.

Employee Relations

Dealing with employment issues can make or break the best of companies.

Your employees need someone else to talk to about confidential work related issues besides your supervisors.

A part time, on-call or onsite HR Consultant is the person who can walk the fine line between labor and management, while giving your employees a "safety valve" that can reduce stress, resolve HR, payroll or benefit related issues and potentially prevent lawsuits.

Supervisor Productivity

On average, employee conflicts occupy 18% of a manager's time. Simplify your operations and refocus on your core activities by relieving supervisors, the Controller, and the Office Manager of HR Administrative duties. Provide them with an on-call specialist who can assist them with issues from mundane daily time consuming tasks to difficult disciplinary actions and performance improvement conversations.

On-Call Professionals

In all organizations, 80% to 90% of issues have HR implications. When things come up, who do you or your supervisors call? Do you call a labor attorney at $300 an hour? Do you search on Google and spend hours reading opinions and reports, only to find the information is 5 years old? Wouldn't you rather get the correct answer from your own on-call HR expert who knows your business, knows your employees and is current in the profession?
