Here's the problem with similar service providers.
Their HR support is through novices who have little to no practical experience; with disconnected Union Avoidance "experts" unable to quickly build the level of trust and respect necessary to be effective; all delivered in an outdated, cookie-cutter "one-size-fits-all" approach.

That's why Valens is both different and effective.

We are grateful for Tracy’s education, advice, counsel, handbook review, and employee coaching, discipline, performance management/termination and the development of our Human Resources toolkit with everything we need to make our work easier. Thanks, Valens - we love working with you!"

Educating your people is the most effective way to minimize risk and improve internal effectiveness and efficiencies.

Our training is engaging and accessible anywhere so learning opportunities encourage collaboration, increase productivity, and help people grow (personally and professionally).

Legal Compliance

One legal claim by an employee can cost upwards of $250,000.  Failure to maintain legal compliance opens up the business AND its management team personally to governmental fines, penalties, and litigation. Compliance is not a 1-time issue; it’s ongoing.  We ensure business and personal assets are not at risk by conducting internal investigations as a completely neutral party, and constantly monitoring changes in federal, state, and local laws.

Organizational/Team Development

It’s absolutely critical to continuously evaluate process improvements and have fully-engaged team members in order to deliver world-class experiences and operate effectively.  We identify your employee needs and goals, developing clearly-defined roles and responsibilities, so you hire and retain the right people to give you a competitive advantage.  We identify issues to be addressed BEFORE employees even consider unionization (which increases your administrative costs alone, on average, by 35% and drives a wedge between management and the workforce).

“What is HR? Human Resources (HR) is everything related to the employment of people to provide services on behalf of a business; ensuring they work in a safe and healthy environment; with clear duties and expectations, transparent and genuine communication from leadership, tools to be successful, and the opportunity for personal and professional growth."
