HR Consultant Creates Professional Development Program for HR Professionals, Consultants and Small Businesses

Granite Bay, CA (PressExposure) February 09, 2009 -- A Northern California Human Resources consultant has launched a teleseminar coaching program plus online forum to help subscribers make themselves indispensable to their organizations and further their HR careers.

The “HR Excellence Inner Circle” includes monthly professional development teleseminars and coaching, plus membership in an exclusive online forum for Human Resources professionals, small business owners and HR consultants. The program is available on a risk-free trial basis at [].

“This Inner Circle program grew out of a very successful teleseminar series I piloted last fall,” says Inner Circle HR Excellence founder Becky Regan of Regan HR, Inc. “People were really hungry for real-world solutions to HR problems like compensation, benefits management, recruiting, downsizing, writing job descriptions, Fair Labor Standards Act compliance and more. As a bonus, subscribers even received job search strategies and tips to help them manage their own job search.”

Regan discovered there was a real need for this kind of “in the trenches” education. “Especially in smaller organizations, it’s not unusual for the HR function to be handed off to someone with no formal HR training, such as an administrative assistant or office manager. HR is just one of many things on their plate,” says Regan. “And too often, that lack of education shows up in the form of bad hires, inadequate employee evaluation procedures and poorly-written (or non-existent) job descriptions. The end result can be low employee morale, ‘revolving-door’ positions and higher expenses related to employment mistakes...and in the worst-case scenario, adverse legal actions.”

Regan believes that professional development has never been more important for the HR professional or small business owner. “In an economy like this, even if an HR professional isn’t worried about her own job security, she’s probably dreading the prospect of managing a selective downsizing or reduction in force. Managing separations can be tough for someone who hasn’t done it before.”

The Inner Circle HR Excellence coaching program also includes professional development for other Human Resources consultants. “I know my own practice has been impacted by the economic slowdown,” says Regan. Companies are reducing their use of consultants in an effort to save money. “In a lot of cases, that’s simply penny-wise and pound-foolish,” Regan insists.

Using an independent consultant can be especially cost effective in a downward economy with increased employee relations issues and potential resulting litigation against employers. Studies show that effective management of a company’s HR function maximizes the company’s ROI for their largest line item expenses while minimizing legal exposure “I can help HR consultants demonstrate their value in this, or any, economic climate,” says Regan.
