Join our HR Advisory Council. Comprised of Human Resources professionals who volunteer their time and knowledge to providing advice and assistance to help entrepreneurial start-up's, small business owners and not-for-profit organizations with human resources issues, this service is free of charge to recipients.
The Advisory Council offers consultancy, through volunteers, primarily via phone. Typical contact is an initial phone intact to discuss the issue, needs or concern and then a follow-up at completion. It is all dependent upon the nature of the request. There should never be on-site visits.
The Advisory Council and it's volunteers should not and do not create actual work product or perform work on behalf of the client. Rather, the approach is more in the form of guidance. For example, if a client is in need of an employee handbook, the SHRMJC volunteer would pull from resources available to him/her and send examples. An example might be a mock handbook downloaded from the SHRM website; copy of the volunteers' own company handbook; or a document listing key policies that should be in an employee handbook. The same would apply to a business in need of a job application or information about how to conduct an interview. Basic HR content is available from a variety of sources and is forwarded/shared with the client business. For anything beyond basic information or guidance, council volunteers are instructed to advise the client business to speak with their attorney to secure actual work content.
Give back to the community in which you work. Share your knowledge. Help someone because in so doing, it will help you. Opportunities to serve are periodic, of differing length, need, and content. Volunteer as your time and your expertise permits.
You must be a member of SHRMJC to volunteer and contribute. An application and completion of agreement forms are also required.
