Axcet HR Solutions is a Kansas City strategic planning consultant that can determine if your organizational structure is more likely to impede or advance your growth goals.

Organizational Development

Strategic human resources planning helps small businesses connect their organizational goals to their HR capabilities. Working with Axcet HR Solutions, provider of comprehensive strategic planning consulting services, small and mid-sized businesses will align their HR practices to support profitability.

Organizational structure review and design

Organizational structure is – or should be – inextricably linked to strategy. It’s about optimizing talent and focusing resources on a company’s business objectives. And, as they change over time, so, too, should your organizational structure.

Aligning your reporting hierarchy, performance metrics and staffing analyses with strategic priorities improves accountability, decision making, morale and productivity. Sometimes there’s a clear-cut need to review how your organization is structured, like
after a merger. Other signs may be less obvious, such as executives spending too much time in meetings, high turnover and work delays.

Axcet HR Solutions is a Kansas City strategic planning consultant that can determine if your organizational structure is more likely to impede or advance your growth goals. We can help you clearly define lines of communication and responsibilities so that your staff is more motivated and better equipped to deliver desired outcomes.

Workforce planning

Your business thrives or dies based on your employees’ performance. Having the right people with the right skills in the right positions is the only way you can effectively
deliver your products or services.

The key to that equation is strategic workforce planning and, in many cases, consulting with an HR partner who can help you maintain a high-performing staff. Whether your company is ready to grow or it’s simply time to revisit your organizational chart, Axcet can be your strategic planning consulting firm partner to guide you through workforce planning exercises that:

Identify skill gaps that exist now or could occur later based on your long-term business objectives, so you can address them through proactive recruitment efforts or professional development;

  • Help you structure or restructure jobs within the organization to fit what you need to achieve;
  • Help you determine what skillsets you need to look for when you’re filling open positions;
  • Help employees understand their roles in achieving the company’s vision; and
  • Identify talent management key performance indicators.

Compensation analysis

Profit is to companies what wages are to employees. Sure, people work to pursue their passions, but almost everyone cares how much money they make, too.

So, fair pay is a powerful recruitment tool. Competitive wages help you attract and retain top talent.

Compensation analysis – for a single position, a department or across an entire company – is a valuable tool that helps your small business ensure that employees are being paid fairly and that you are maximizing the benefits that come with a strong compensation program.

Axcet’s strategic planning consulting services include analyzing small and mid-sized companies’ compensation strategies by:

  • Reviewing or helping to develop a compensation philosophy, which may include a desire to ensure pay equity;
  • Comparing how competitive their pay scales are within their industries or according to employees’ job responsibilities;
  • Reviewing or creating clear job descriptions; and
  • Recommending pay rates or ranges that create engaged employees and competitive advantages and align with the management team’s compensation philosophy.

Employee surveys

At any given moment, only one-third of your employees are engaged. That can cost your company plenty. Disengaged employees are less productive and more likely to leave.

One of the keys to boosting engagement is showing employees that their opinions matter. Enter employee surveys. Asking your teams how they feel about their working conditions, the company culture or other issues that may concern them – or you – and then addressing any concerns they raise sends a powerful message.

The very act of surveying employees communicates that you care about them. Making course corrections based on survey feedback reinforces that sentiment and, more importantly, can build your employees’ attachment to your company.

At Axcet, we make the process turnkey by developing unbiased questions, conducting the surveys, analyzing results and recommending the best ways to respond. And, since we serve as a strategic planning consulting firm to our clients, our employee survey follow-up plans are always designed with big-picture goals that include improving morale, retention, workflows and internal processes.

Succession planning

In scouting and in business, the same motto applies: Be prepared. That’s the idea behind succession planning – something nearly 60 percent of small businesses are not doing.

Succession plans, also sometimes referred to as business continuity or transition plans, allow companies to continue operating smoothly during a disruption. The most important benefit of succession planning is ensuring the longevity of your business. The time to start succession planning is yesterday, but it is especially critical when an owner intends to retire or when some other change in leadership is on the horizon.

Axcet analyzes how key employees’ absence would affect the business, offers an objective assessment on your talent pool to determine w­­­hether internal or external candidates could best fill the open roles, identifies potential candidates’ skill gaps and manages coaching to prepare successors to excel in designated leadership positions.

Axcet has been a strategic planning consulting firm specializing in succession planning and other key HR functions since 1988. We can help you identify and groom future leaders and help ensure your business is in good, qualified hands for years to come.

The most important benefit of succession planning is ensuring the longevity of your business.

PEO Services Help Small Companies Thrive

PEOs like Axcet HR Solutions exist for one reason: to manage essential HR tasks on behalf of small and mid-sized businesses. A PEO’s services save small business owners money and worry by delivering expert human resources, compliance with employment regulations and time to refocus on business growth.

Mission, Vision and Values Creation

“Mission,” “vision” and “values” are more than just buzz words. They are the fundamentals that separate you from your competition and guide your employees through their day-to-day activities. They are the “why,” “what” and “how” of your
business. Yet, time-strapped small business owners may push off developing or refreshing these important directional tools.

Engaging Axcet as your strategic planning consulting firm streamlines the process. We’ll ask the right questions: Where is the organization headed, what are your primary goals, what’s most important from business, customer service and culture standpoints? We’re the partner who can guide you painlessly through the process, making sure the message you’re trying to deliver is the one you’re capturing.

We’ll also help you roll out your mission, vision and values to employees so they clarify what you want your culture to accomplish and are used to guide daily decisions.

HR Blues? Let's Talk

Change management

Change happens. Sometimes, you see it coming and, in other instances, you don’t. Whether you have advance notice or not, you have to successfully manage it in order for your business to grow.

Effective change management is an HR best practice that helps a company successfully navigate through a transition with minimal disruption to personnel and operations. The process involves situational analysis, risk assessments, planning and communication. And, while change management is unique to every company, two goals remain constant: raise awareness of an impending change and equip the affected employees to successfully adapt to the change.

Axcet, a Kansas City strategic planning consultant, has helped hundreds of small businesses through this vital human resources management function that:

  • Increases employee buy-in and support of the change;
  • Reduces the inherent stress of and resistance to change;
  • Positions the change as desirable and positive;
  • Improves morale and productivity; and
  • Instills employee loyalty.

Change does not have to be scary. Lean on a trusted partner like Axcet, who can shepherd the process for you and leverage expert change management to effectively

I have found that I have a problem with the computer program in part because I have macular degeneration in both eyes and double vision in my right eye. It is frustrating that I am asked to rate this program before I even get logged in.

When we left Axcet, our CEO was hoping to find an HR Consultant that more aligned with his goals for our organization. But also we left because we had a connection at another company and wanted to give them business. We had tried two other PEOs. Both of which we left after the first year. The level of service that we were accustomed to with Axcet was not present at the other PEOs. It would take much longer to get the most simple questions answered or to get a report that we needed. One of the PEO’s portal was the exact same as Axcet’s but they had everything locked down where we would have to ask them for certain things. Again, then it would take forever when before I was used to doing it myself. We came back to Axcet truly because of the excellent service we always received. Everyone at Axcet would make us feel like we were their only client, like they were sitting there waiting for our call, always friendly and ready to help.
