PeopleFirst Enterprises, Inc. provides cost effective human resources practices, guidance and outsourcing services to emerging, small and midsize businesses in the Southeast market. Utilizing my expertise in all aspects of human resources management as well as the skills and experience of other PeopleFirst Consultants, Hispanic business owners/leaders will be better able to manage the complex U.S. employment laws as well as the issues that arise as they are trying to manage and build their businesses while simultaneously attracting and retaining good employees.

In today’s changing world, capital is a scarce. Because PeopleFirst is smaller than some of its larger competitors we are able to provide similar services that are not pre-packed and will be designed to meet the business needs of each customer and at a significantly lower expense.

 

PeopleFirst would like to offer members of the Georgia Hispanic Chamber a 20% discount on all hourly projects and a 25% discount on pre-paid annual retainer services. PeopleFirst would provide the Georgia Hispanic Chamber with 5% of all revenue received through referrals by the Georgia Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

 

PeopleFirst provides businesses with affordable yet comprehensive human resources solutions including full-Services HR outsourcing, consulting, human resources administration, start-up and interim management. We help our customers by working with them to develop customized hiring, employment, compensation and other business strategy that keep them compliant and typically saves them on time and expenses associated with recruiting, hiring and training new employees.

 

Our consultants have led their own Human Resources departments as well as other business departments and functions for various companies and industries. We understand businesses from the multiple points of view. This gives us the ability to quickly assess your people, processes and circumstances, and recommend cost-effective solutions that work. All of our consultants are certified Human Resources professionals and I am a certified paralegal and fluent in Spanish

We can help answer questions such as:

  • Do I haveto pay overtime?
  • What legal documentation do I need to hire someone?
  • One of my employees wants to take a leave of absence. Do I have to grant this?
  • Do I need to have personnel files? What belongs in the file?
  • How do I decide on and communicate my dress policy?
  • How should I calculate vacation days?
  • How do I legally fire someone?

 

Many companies need Human Resources help on an on-going basis, but those companies don’t need a full-time staff person. PeopleFirst can offer Human Resources consulting and hands-on support for companies who need an experienced professional to take them through what could be difficult decisions. In addition to the member of our staff who will help you, you get the expertise of all our associates. We are confident we can help with any challenge a customer may encounter.

Our complimentary merchant review and analysis for GHCC members begins by understanding the unique payment acceptance needs of a prospective client/merchant by holding a meeting with the owner or management team to uncover existing and desired requirements as it relates to authorization, processing and financial settlement of credit, debit and check/ach transactions. By fully understanding what occurs in the life cycle of a payment transaction at a merchant site from the first point of interaction with a customer to the back-end office processes will ensure we have gathered the facts so we can ultimately be successful in our review, analysis and recommendations. We will audit merchant statement(s) to fully understand how credit and debit card transactions are qualifying for industry interchange/discount rates and transaction fees to determine where improvements can be made. Often times a merchant’s cost is higher than it should be due to interchange downgrades caused by an operational or technical flaw unbeknown to the merchant and not revealed by their processor. Once we fully understand the scope of the technical, operational and financial aspects of a merchant’s payment acceptance methods we then offer our recommendations designed to designed to improve every facet of the operation while reducing costs.
