HR Advisory Council

SHRMJC partners with the Kansas Small Business Development Center (KSBDC) to provide Human Resources guidance to small businesses on topics ranging from the difference between a 1099 and W-2 employee, to “should I write down policies and have an employee handbook?” and “how do I create a salary structure?”

Our HR Advisory Council is comprised of Human Resources professionals who volunteer their time and knowledge 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.

If the request is taken on, the HR professional advises, gives pointers, can direct the small business to other resources such as SHRM national, their insurance broker, tax accountant, a labor attorney, etc.  As a volunteer advisor, you don’t actually do the work of writing job descriptions, policies and handbooks (examples of some of the requests), but you would advise the small business on their best approach such as what information needs to be in a job description and handbooks. 

You must be a member of SHRMJC to volunteer and contribute.  An application and completion of agreement forms are also required.  SHRMJC members who volunteer to help with this group are able to add their volunteer hours for recertification credit to both SHRM and HRCI.

If you would like to be a part of this team, contact the SHRMJC Board at
