Until You Get Your Own HR

As a Small business owner, you have a lot of priorities competing for your attention and most of the times find yourself in reactive rather than proactive mode. One of the most important but yet not always closely addressed areas is the human resources aspects around the growth of your business. After all, you find yourself suddenly with an urgent need to add an employee or a few in a hurry and don’t have time or are not aware of potential blind spots or actions that can turn out to be costly or fatal to the business in its infancy or vulnerable state. So until you can afford to have someone else help you in this area, here are the main reasons and main purposes big businesses turn to HR for:

-Planning what your business needs and goals are and what type of person or people can help you get there or address this need.
-Communicate to all parties involved internally on rights and obligations to each other
-Making sure you comply with employment and labor laws to avoid discrimination or negligent hiring lawsuits for instance.
-Accounting and projecting for any business or volume fluctuations to get the right number of part time or seasonal employees as an example if your business spikes up during summer or other period of year.
-Training, development and ongoing evaluations of your team to keep the ones you want to keep and show the rest the door.
-Determine who needs and deserves to get paid what.
-Establish order and procedures to avoid anyone getting hurt because of lack of safety procedures for instance.

While it is possible to dig into each one of these further or turn them over to an HR person or department which you don’t have yet, you can make sure you start the right habits from now and you will save on the cost of bad hires and gain the benefit of hiring the right people so that you can afford to have HR to do this for you sooner than later!

SENTINEL BACKGROUND CHECKS ACHIEVES BACKGROUND SCREENING CREDENTIALING COUNCIL ACCREDITATION

RALEIGH, N.C., DATE – The National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS®) Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) announced today that Sentinel Background Checks has successfully demonstrated compliance with the Background Screening Agency Accreditation Program (BSAAP) and will now be formally recognized as BSCC-Accredited.

Sentinel Background Checks
710 Oakfield Drive
Suite 254
Brandon, FL 33511

“Sentinel Background Checks is honored to join a very select number of organizations that have achieved this accreditation. This is added validation to the standards our clients have already been experiencing for years and the entire Sentinel Team is very proud of this national recognition.” Says Rachid Zahidi, CEO of Sentinel Background Checks and author of the book :“The Business Immunity System.”

Each year, U.S. employers, organizations and governmental agencies request millions of consumer reports to assist with critical business decisions involving background screening. Background screening reports, which are categorized as consumer reports, are currently regulated at both the federal and state level.
Since its inception, NAPBS has maintained that there is a strong need for a singular, cohesive industry standard and, therefore, created the BSAAP. Governed by a strict professional standard of specified requirements and measurements, the BSAAP is becoming a widely recognized seal of achievement that brings national recognition to background screening organizations (also referred to as Consumer Reporting Agencies). This recognition will stand as the industry “seal,” representing a
background screening organization’s commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards and continued institutional improvement.
The BSCC oversees the application process and is the governing accreditation body that validates the background screening organizations seeking accreditation meet or exceed a measurable standard of competence. To become accredited, consumer reporting agencies must pass a rigorous onsite audit, conducted by an independent auditing firm, of its policies and procedures as they relate to six critical areas: consumer protection, legal compliance, client education, product standards, service standards, and general business practices.
Any U.S.-based employment screening organization is eligible to apply for accreditation. A copy of the standard, the policies and procedures, and measurements is available at www.napbs.com.
