I'm Scott Ence.
I help small(ish) companies
Now more than ever, managing the 'people side' of the business well can be a differentiator for your company, to enable success and growth! Think big, start small.
What is "HR" in a small business?
✔ Tier 1: Essentials and ComplianceHow do I pay my people? Am I following the employment laws? What practices should I follow to just cover the basics?
✔ Tier 2: Cornerstones of SuccessWhat experience are my employees having? What culture am I building? How do I communicate with them? Do they understand their role? Are leaders learning and growing?
✔ Tier 3: Competitive Advantage Through People and CultureAre my employees invovled with and aware of my purpose & goals? Am I training up leaders to take on more? Am I hiring and retaining the most important people? Am I compensating my people in a way that supports my future plans and goals?
I think of it in three tiers...
in a Small Business
Building solid HR practices in your business will ensure solid footing for future growth and success!
"Think big, start small!"
We can talk about the first steps to take...
Not even sure where to start or what to do? Let's talk!
I have a thorough "organization assessment" audit to review your business - reach out for more info!
The very beginning.
You are hiring employees, but wondering – am I doing it right? Am I following the laws?
You are paying your employees, but wondering – am I doing it correctly? Am I being smart about whom I pay, and how much? Am I paying the right amounts?
You also may be wondering – should I provide medical insurance? If so, when, and how?
What about employee questions, concerns, accusations, and complaints? VERY important to handle these things appropriately – following the laws, and ensuring a solid foundation is built!
Not sure where you stand in any of these areas?
Let’s set up a time to chat!
Cornerstones of People Success & Growth
Once you feel the essentials are in a good place, you start thinking about the next step.
You ask yourself:
Do my employees understand their job roles?
Do they understand what I expect of them?
Do I have ways to give them feedback if they aren’t performing well, and reward them when they are?
Are we, as a company, aware of the best ways to approach “managing people”? Do we build trust with our employees? Do they like working, and do they give their best effort?
Are the leaders & managers in my company learning and growing?
Are they developing and building in a way that I can delegate to them?
Are they helping the company move forward?
Competitive Advantage through your People & Culture
With the cornerstones built, now is the chance to differentiate your company, and look to achieving your biggest goals! Getting all your employees rowing in the same direction!
Do I have a full, strategic vision of where the company’s going?
Do I have a purpose, and culture, that people know and are proud of?
Am I aware of my rock star employees, and do I have plans to reward and retain them?
Are my top leaders growing in such a way that I can delegate big things to them, and focus my attention on other things?
Make real work happen
I help companies become their best!
During my 15+ years in HR, I have learned the importance of doing things the right way, and the power of connecting HR practices with business strategy. I have worked in companies from 40 to 2,000, and identified some key themes that help teams, and companies succeed.
While I specialize in professional services and technology companies, I'm excited to share my own experience and knowledge with small businesses, and build community with leaders and HR professionals who can help enable small businesses to thrive!!!
