Vail, CO, Colorado
Business name: HR Services Co.
Date Opened: June 1, 2005.
Owner: Lynette Horan.
What goods or services do you provide? I offer human resource consulting, training and outsourcing. My goal is to tackle the HR needs that meet organizational objectives so my clients can focus on what they do best.
Many of my clients are small to mid-size companies that don’t have a designated HR professional, so they need assistance with recruiting, employee handbooks, motivating and retaining staff, improving staff performance or team cohesiveness, benefits orientations and administration, performance evaluations, job descriptions, standard operating procedures and state and federal legal compliance.
I also partner with larger organizations on projects including as 360 degree performance evaluations, where the employees evaluate the effectiveness of their managers. I also teach classes on supervisory and leadership development, the multi-generational workplace and customer service training at Colorado Mountain College. Basically, I help people work better together.
What philosophy do you follow in dealing with your customers? What can your customers expect from you? I am passionate about providing ethical, fair and cutting-edge employment practices to help my clients become more competitive in exceeding the current challenges and preparing for the future while building the people side of great businesses.
My pricing is affordable and custom-designed to fit your budget. I know how to balance the concerns of both the management and staff while meeting company objectives and have superior knowledge of employee-employer legal requirements and compliance. Customers can expect that I will help them improve their business.
Tell us a little about your background, education and experience: I have been certified as a senior professional by the Society of HR Management since 2002. I have more than 18 years of experience as a human resources professional and have lived in Colorado since 1986.
Prior to opening my own HR consulting business in 2005, I was employed as part of the senior management team for companies including the Gallegos Corporation, Embassy Suites Hotel and Destination Services Corporation. My experience encompasses HR knowledge in the the hospitality, non-profit and construction industries as well as the government sector.
I like to give back to the community and have served as the past president of the High Country HR Association Board and am a volunteer judge for the HR Games and bi-annual State HR Conference. I am honored to have been selected to speak on “Conducting Effective Internal Investigations” at the 2009 Colorado-SHRM State Conference in Keystone Oct. 1.
What do you want clients or potential clients to know about your business? I’ll come to you for a one-hour free consultation to see if we are a good fit for each other. In a tough economy, experts suggest that it is crucial for employers to concentrate on becoming better places to work. Happy employees translate into happy customers. Those who invest time in their best asset (their employees) with retention strategies, training and improving customer service levels will better compete today and in the years ahead.
The cost of turnover has been ranked between $10,000 and $30,000 per employee. If I can help a manager save or turn around one employee, your minor investment in me has saved your company money.
