Human Resources Support

Human Resources support

Managing your business’s human resources is not only time consuming and energy intensive, but also diverts your attention away from your core business activities.

Our HR consultants can support your business’s complete hire-to-retire cycle, from talent acquisition and development to compensation management, employee services and benefits administration. Our services are ideal for small- to medium-size businesses that are overwhelmed by, or simply not trained to carry out, the day-to-day tasks related to administering benefits, recruiting candidates, onboarding new hires and managing HR-specific projects.

Our fees are structured on a monthly or project basis.

Here is how we can support your business:

Employee Relations

We’ll provide employee relations support and serve as your resource when sensitive issues arise. We’ll attend meetings with employees, help resolve matters whenever possible, and work to minimize your organization’s legal risk by ensuring fair and impartial treatment of all associates.


Employee Handbook and Policy Review

We will review your personnel policies and forms, create or update your employee handbook and deliver it in a format that will facilitate future revisions.


Recruitment and Selection

Our expertise can help make your organization’s sourcing, recruitment and staffing moves more economical and efficient and will ensure they are legally compliant. We will help you identify candidates who have the aptitude and skills you need to accomplish the job. We will help you source and identify the best candidates, from entry-level associates to senior managers. Our services include developing job descriptions and posting openings, pre-screening candidates, initiating background checks and extending and negotiating offers.


New Hire Orientation and Onboarding

We will conduct a comprehensive orientation with new hires to walk them through required paperwork, company benefits and policies. We will also track the completion and processing of all paperwork.


HR Compliance Audit

We will perform a comprehensive review to evaluate current file maintenance systems and processes to ensure your organization is meeting all legal and regulatory requirements helping you avoid costly fines and penalties.

Job Design and Competency Modeling

We will partner with you to develop job descriptions and competency models that reflect the skills, abilities and behaviors your employees need to be successful in their roles. This model clearly communicates the organization’s expectations using an established, proven method of obtaining feedback and incorporating your company’s values.


Benefits Administration

Our benefits administration support is twofold. We manage the strategic implementation of your benefits program with your selected carriers and handle hands-on administration of benefits with your employees.

We will serve as the liaison between your organization and your benefits broker and carriers by obtaining quotes, evaluating and assessing options, making recommendations for plan offerings, subsidy structures as well as managing the broker relationship and carrier contracts. In addition, we can assist in identifying quality service providers to administer COBRA benefits and flexible spending accounts. We will record benefits transactions, reconcile invoices, manage employee enrollment/change forms, and track payroll records.

We will also orchestrate the open enrollment and/or implementation process with your employees, educate new hires and address any benefits-related questions or issues that arise. Finally, we will advocate, as necessary, with brokers and carriers on behalf of your employees.

Using ARI’s HR consulting services allows our team to focus on its core business while having an expert at our disposal. As a result, we operate more efficiently on a day-to-day basis and I am comfortable that we are avoiding procedural and regulatory missteps due to a lack of HR expertise within our entrepreneurial firm.

Since our company outsourced our production in 2015, we have been using ARI for both our accounting and human resources. I am extremely pleased with their professionalism and timely responses to all our needs. As our business keeps me on the road and out of the office most of the time I feel very confident with Michele, their Director of HR, to handle all of my employees’ questions and issues. Michele is a real pleasure to work with! I highly recommend this firm for all your accounting and human resource needs.
