Why Visionova HR

Yes, it does matter. Especially when it comes to handling employee relations issues, and compliance. On average, our HR Support Center Pros and local Pros have more than 10 years of real-world experience, answer thousands of HR questions each month, and hold a PHR or SPHR Certification. Our local pros regularly speak at industry conferences, conduct workshops and provide workplace training and development.

No matter what they tell you, Human Resources is always about people. We view our clients as partners and not as transactions. We make HR simple, personal, and approachable. You can focus on running their businesses, and we will handle the HR matters along the way.

As an HR Consultant, we believe it is not enough to merely know the rules and best practices but, a partner in the trenches with you, side by side. We listen, recognize and value you.

We have one goal, to help our clients build, strengthen, and achieve their mission and vision. How? By providing great HR support, tools, and collaboration.

We thought there were just a few areas that we needed help with and shortly thereafter, it became clear that we pretty much needed a major HR overhaul….By giving us the tools and tips on how to better communicate with each other and taking a closer look at outdated policies and practices has changed the way we work and have fun together.

Organizations wanting to get clear on their people processes – both compliance and the ’softer’ side of human resources infrastructure should consider Bernadette Jones and Visonova… Bernadette always put the client’s needs first. She is thoughtful and professional and knows her stuff.

Vicki Cotter, SPHR, CPCC, ACC, Keep it Simple, LLC

With Visionova’s support, we have developed a plan to improve our practices and update the tools we use…Visionova has helped us to organize and prioritize tasks, and this in turn has motivated us to move on items that previously felt overwhelming and intimidating.

Services to Suit Your HR Needs

Do you have a dysfunctional workplace? Employees are the heartbeat of a healthy culture. They can make or break your organization. You’ve likely experienced a workplace that’s chaotic and stressful, where employees are not excited to come to work. However, what does workplace culture have to do with it? Culture is the beliefs, values, and behaviors that we encourage, support, or tolerate. It’s not at all what we say, but what we do, how we act, and how we work or don’t work together.

If your workplace has spiraled into a stressful, unhealthy culture, plagued with no-shows and negative conflict, you’ve just made the case for your “Culture Reset.”

We support our clients with the safety net of a HR department and peace of mind that their business is compliant with the latest regulations, and prepared for any employee issue big or small. Going it alone may save money in the short term—but one bad hire and a lawsuit can cost your tens of thousands and send your business into free-fall. Our affordable Monthly HR Subscriptions help you mitigate risk while increasing employee engagement.

We have a team of Certified HR Professionals ready to help ensure your business is protected.

There are a few things that can take your organization-and all your hard work-down fast. Like not having an employee handbook, having an out of date handbook, or having a boiler plate handbook written for some other organization. We create a culture-first employee handbook that sets the stage for a new hire to fit in and not have to figure it out on their own. What about employee claims? Your personalized employee handbook will cover the ever-changing state and federal laws, or not leave room for confusion and possible lawsuits?

We will design a customized culture-first employee handbook that reflects the current HR realities and gives you a solid foundation that covers all the bases-and then some.

We believe that proactive, customized, training makes the difference between a good workforce and a great one. Our programs feature an extensive range of topics, from customer service training, to coaching first-time supervisors as they take on more significant responsibilities. Helping key leaders ignite a culture of engagement, and manage the performance of their teams. Our HR Pros can keep you in compliance by facilitating California AB-1825 Mandated Supervisor Harassment Prevention Training for your staff and supervisors. Ongoing training programs helps you stay competitive and increase your bottom line.

The only thing worse than training employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay. – Henry Ford
