Human Resources Manager in San Diego, CA
HR is a balancing act. Delivering the work environment you want for your employees within the confines of what your firm is able and willing to supply. As a business person specializing in HR, I realize that every business has limitations on what it's capable of delivering its employees while still maintaining a growing business. I am not the kind of HR person who feels the employee comes before the business. It is essential that HR intertwines with your business so it runs seamlessly as a vital part of the business rather than as a separate entity.

read moreHiring your first employee can be an exciting and scary moment in the life of a business.

Interviewing and Hiring Employees
read moreNo matter how many (or how few) people you have interviewed and hired, improvement of the techniques and results may be desired. Have you really thought through exactly what the job entails on a day-by-day basis? Have you determined precisely what skills and experience are necessary to fulfill that role? Time is money and there's no reason to waste either by reviewing the resumes more than once. Asking candidates the right questions will get you better results when hiring. Knowing what you need, how to find the person who can fulfill that need, and how to ensure that new employee's success is the key to your company's success.
Employee Performance Management
read moreWe often get questions about how to handle absenteeism, tardiness, poor job performance, and a multitude of other topics. Nearly everyone gets the same basic response: performance management. Performance management is typically where supervisors and HR people often spend the majority of their time. Don't confuse this with that annual performance review. That's merely a summary of everything you and the employee have done throughout the year. Helping employees learn what you want or expect from them takes communication.
