Every company should have someone giving them HR advice from the very beginning.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
On March 21, 2013, co-hosts Lee Kantor and Stone Payton of BusinessRadioX®'s Atlanta Business Radio sat down with Gary Wheeler from The Virtual HR Director to discuss human resources strategies for small businesses.
Gary Wheeler is the founder and owner of The Virtual HR Director, LLC, an organization that delivers strategic and tactical HR solutions at affordable rates for small and midsize organizations. Wheeler is a 24-year veteran of United Parcel Service (UPS) where he held various assignments in Operations, Industrial Engineering and Human Resources. Wheeler received a B.S in Human Resources and an MBA from the University of Maryland University College (UMUC). He also holds a Master’s Certificate in Project Management from George Washington University and several HR certifications. Wheeler has served as a director on the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI), WorldatWork Compensation, SHRM-Atlanta, and the Atlanta Community Food Bank Boards.
Explains Wheeler, "Every company should have someone giving them HR advice from the very beginning." Wheeler went on to explain The Virtual HR Director's signature service is for a business that cannot afford to hire a full-time senior level director. They assign a Part-Time HR Director to deliver services on-site and virtually. With The Virtual HR Director, the CEO and their staff receive strategic and tactical HR support. For the cost of a full-time administrative assistant, they ensure that a business is in compliance with all government regulations and will implement benchmark HR processes so the client can focus on growing revenue and profits.
The Virtual HR Director conducts a Compliance Audit for a client, then creates an HR plan including job descriptions and performance evaluations. According to Wheeler, "Compliance can kill a small business owner if they're not doing the right things." He went on to explain that HR compliance can actually lead a small business to be more profitable.
