Trades


As a rule, the trades don’t usually think about HR—until it’s too late.

Trades businesses often need significant support in the areas of apprenticeship, hiring, and safety, including:
  • Establishing performance requirements
  • Developing structured training programs
  • Determining appropriate wages
  • Implementing a basic safety program that isn't overwhelming
But, they also need guidance in developing the sorts of policies and procedures that will protect the company from employment-related liability, such as hiring and dismissal practices, internal controls, safety programs and certification, and oh, let's not forget about the drug and alcohol policies. Growth is sexy, paperwork isn’t.  But to be successful in the long term, trades businesses need both.

“Having Harriet work with me to manage my business more efficiently was the best money spent!!! She has a matter-a-fact approach that sugar coats nothing!!! I truly recommend Harriet's services to any small or mid- size business owners that would like to see the work climate of the office or shop change drastically for the better and margins increase!!!” P.
