Welcome to ECG's monthly newsletter, providing insights and advice about all things HR!
May 2014

Greetings from ECG!

Last month we shared with you the Benefits & Compensation Surveys we have been processing for the hospitality industry – Now we are moving forward with our survey process for the Santa Fe New MexicoMonterey/Carmel and the RERG (Resort Employee Relations Group) survey nationwide…  and…  the Annual Survey for the Santa Barbara Human Resources Association representing “All Industries” is currently underway.  The survey results will be sent back to all participants mid-July.
We are pleased to announce that we are now providing an HR “Integrity Hotline” for a small group of luxury properties located in Southern California, New York City and in The Hamptons…  Very exciting!  These employees will have yet another venue to bring forth any matters of concern and we will work closely with the groups’ Human Resources Director to address those concerns.

Recruitment opportunity alert:

We are currently seeking an experienced Hospitality Front Office Manager for a new property opening up soon in the Los Angeles area.  If you know of anyone “great” seeking a new opportunity, please have them contact Patricia Ceballos at pceballos@executivehrconsulting.com, or they can simply call 818-845-5584.

Highlights from our blog:

Reminder: Minimum wage increasing in July - prepare now!. Effective July 1, 2014, minimum wage increases to $9.00 per hour. It is imperative that you become familiar with the minimum wage requirements in California and comply with them in a timely manner. Learn more about the new minimum wage laws.

The difference between employees and independent contractors. Understand the difference between employees and independent contractors. An independent contractor is someone who is independently in business for themselves. The employer does not control the worker but only controls the end results of the work that the independent contractor has been retained to do. Learn more about the difference by reading our blog.

How we work: Responsiveness. Executive HR Consulting Group, we understand that many HR issues are time-sensitive and need to be addressed as soon as possible. Simple problems tend to escalate and grow if they are not resolved immediately. A quick response is usually essential to finding a successful solution in the work environment.

Employee opinion surveys. Placing a strong emphasis on employee relations is essential for maintaining a positive and productive workforce. It demonstrates that the company values its employees rather than just their work performance. Learn more about our employee opinion surveys.
