[P.O.W.E.R. Plug Podcast] Sourcing + Retaining the Best Employees for Your Business

Do you have a Human Resource Plan or process in place for your business? A solid HR process is vital for building and retaining a reliable team of employees. When you consider the myriad of responsibilities under the HR umbrella such as compliance requirements, hiring strategies, interviews, and employee retention, it can easily become a full-time job. Most business owners want the right person to full an open position quickly, but don't have the time or resources to find or vet them. An outsourced HR service may be the perfect solution.

In this episode, I speak with Amy Bakay, a Senior Certified HR consultant and Founder of HR Nola, a company that provides small and medium sized businesses a full suite of HT services, with onsite and remote options. HR Nola offers expert guidance in social recruiting, legal requirements, onboarding, current hiring trends, improving employee satisfaction and more. As a volunteer for a local chapter of SHRM, The Society of HR Management, Amy performed complimentary audits for nonprofits and small businesses. It was during those audits that Amy realized many of the organizations had compliance risks and opportunities to improve their workforce policies. She decided then to start HR Nola and to this day says it is the best decision she has ever made. Amy was recognized as a New Orleans City Business Women of the Year Honoree.
