You want people who add value to your organization, match your culture and help meet your organization’s goals. HR professionals can help create a recruitment process and provide tools that will assist with the entire process, from job posting to hire, keeping the company’s culture and the legalities of hiring in mind.
Compensation & Benefits
Compensation and benefits are a crucial part of your ability to attract talent. It's important to know if your compensation practices are in line with the going rate for your market and if your benefits provide employees with what they need.
No matter the size of your business or HR department, benefit and compensation professionals can help you with:
Policies and Procedures
Having your organization’s expectations of employees and employment-related laws documented in an employee handbook or policy manual is critical to enforcing consistency in your employment practices. I In order to effectively perform their job, employees need to know what they can and cannot do, what benefits are offered and what they can expect from an organization.
Setting up your HR business function to run efficiently and properly is key. Establishing proper protocols for personnel files, new hire paperwork, Form I-9, performance management, discipline, benefit eligibility and leave of absence allowances will provide for consistency and prevent discrimination.
HR professionals assist with policy violations, workplace concerns and employment-related issues that fall outside of the “norm.” Having an HR Consultant available to assist when issues beyond an organization’s area of expertise arise can mitigate potential risk. Examples of these situations include: dealing with pandemics, terminations, layoffs, performance-related issues, various employee concerns, or claims of harassment or discrimination, to name a few.
Change is inevitable. You don’t want to think about staff leaving your organization, but it happens. Having a plan in place for when change occurs can help you be better prepared. HR professionals can help you create exit documentation, severance packages and proper notifications.

We needed to hire three new employees, two of which were replacing people who had been with us for more than 40 years. Eide Bailly took the time to explain their process, reviewed our hiring materials and screened candidates to make sure they were qualified. Our board and myself are very pleased with Eide Bailly’s process and the results."
"The Eide Bailly team walked me through the process and took diligent notes on what we were looking for. Once the job was posted, they kept us updated on each potential candidate during initial interviews before helping us complete our list of finalists for in-person interviews. Once we came to a decision on the hire, they continued providing assistance until the offer was officially accepted."
The folks we have hired through working with Eide Bailly have elevated the work we are doing. We couldn’t be happier with the quality of the hires they found for us. We are making strides forward in areas that we haven’t been able to move the needle on in a very long time. It’s fun, exciting and profitable too."
