Employee policies handbook software template shrm 2021

First, we wanted the ultimate employee policies and procedures manual for ourselves

Like you, we want to hire the best people, avoid HR issues, and steer clear of legal actions. We feel like the business development software and templates we develop are doing something good in the world and want to keep going. Nevertheless, we’ve had our own share of employee issues in the past, learned from them, and incorporated those solutions here as well!

We chose these experts because we appreciate their business style as well as technical and practical expertise. They are actively practicing HR consultants and they each have many clients of their own — across many states.

They each manage their own business as well.

We welcome you to contact them directly should you desire further consulting.

Anne Caldwell, Human Resources Strategy

HR Management employee policies consultant
Anne Caldwell founded Outsourcing Solutions in 1993 to implement her vision of ethical and effective human resource management. Business owners and managers are generally focused externally, doing just what you are doing, and, in the meantime, are adding employees to form an organization (internal focus) to which nobody is generally paying any attention. Anne’s expertise is in creating organizations, taking a group of people with differing skills and various levels of management experience to create a group that functions productively and within legal bounds. Outsourcing Solutions develops systems for all the work processes and makes the organization run like a well-oiled machine. Anne earned Masters degrees in Organizational Management as well as Human Resources, and currently facilitates programs in Transformational Leadership for the University of Phoenix. She excels in coaching CEO’s in creating the kind of culture where people want to work and can be successful so that the business can be successful. Trainings are available for employees and managers on about 40 different topics to develop management teams in a way to most effectively serve the organization. Few HR professionals have such an in-depth understanding of the unique challenges posed by rapid growth, especially in industries like high technology.

Outsourcing Solutions has built HR departments from scratch for several software companies.
