Human Resource Management Services

Traditionally, human resource management activities have relied on the
individual judgement of supervisors and non-strategic administrative
practices.  Increasingly, companies relying on these traditional
practices suffer costly consequences – including fines and litigated
settlements.  Expanded legal interpretations and aggressive
enforcement of employee rights and protections now demand pro-
active human resource systems producing documented regulatory
compliance and consistently applied workplace policies and
procedures.  Companies not positioning themselves to understand and
benefit from the employee responsibilities associated with employee
rights and protections operate at a clear disadvantage.

Johnsen Corporate Services (JCS) encourages the development and
implementation of pro-active human resource systems to create this
balance.  JCS recognizes three key benefits to a compliant, yet pro-
active HR design: 1) decrease in the frequency of and vulnerability to
litigation and punitive fees; 2) reduction of administrative burden; (3) the
creation of a organizational culture designed for achievement.  JCS
