    • Outsourced HR (Customized HR function support)

      Are you wearing too many hats to manage HR? Do you have a frustrated employee trying to take on HR duties in addition to their regular job responsibilities? Comprehensive HR support is critical to your organization but you may not have the resources to employ experienced HR professionals. Outsourcing HR is a great way to bring on HR expertise and gain efficiency without incurring the cost of adding a full-time position.

      Here are a few examples of how we can help:

      • Recruit new employees - source, interview, reference, background check, and offer letter
      • Create and maintain employee handbook
      • Conduct HR compliance review of policies, practices, and operations.
      • Consult with managers on employee relation issues
      • Assist with termination process
      • Conduct employee investigations
      • Develop job descriptions and assess wage and hour classifications
      • Review benefit plan design and benefits administration
      • Serve as HR contact for employees
      • Collaborate with leadership on strategic planning
    • Project-Based Services

      When you just don’t have the time or expertise, we can help you with your one-off HR specific projects.

      Below are a few examples of projects we can help with:

      • Compliance reviews – HR function, I-9 forms and process; FLSA-pay practices and position classifications
      • Employee handbooks – develop new or review and update current
      • Staffing – full-cycle recruitment for management level and accounting positions
      • Employee investigations– support for employee issues and investigations
    • Affordable Care Act (ACA) Compliance

      Understanding your obligations under the Affordable Care Act can be overwhelming. Employers with 50 or more full-time employees (and/or full-time equivalents) have significant compliance obligations under the law.

      The penalties under ACA for noncompliance are significant. But don’t worry, there are several ways we can help:

      • Check applicable large employer (ALE) status and law applicability
      • Provide guidance on affordable health insurance to prevent penalties
      • Aid in IRS reporting by preparing and filing 1094/1095s
      • Research, calculate, and respond to a penalty notice (Letter 226-J)
      • Advise on ACA module setup during HR system implementation
    • Professional Affiliations

      Membership with professional associations allows our HR professionals to gain insight, learn innovative best practices, network with professionals pursuing similar goals, and participate in educational programs.

    Client Testimonials

    • We are a small subsidiary of a European company. There is not an HR department in North America, so we needed some help putting together an HR handbook. SEK is very professional, knowledgeable, and timely in providing the services we need. We continue to use SEK’s HR services and recommend them to other small businesses.
