He has facilitated or been an active contributor in major projects such as: HRIS implementations, safety plan development, employee orientations/trainings and auditing.
Ted formed HR Outfitters so the human resource function remains a key contributor when running a business. It needs to understand business objectives while representing employees to allow the organization to make informed decisions. By augmenting existing resources, Ted envisions assisting with the day to day needs of the human resource function with industry best practices in mind.
Over his 15 years of human resource experiences, Ted recognized the human resource function gets pulled in several directions on a daily basis. When not recruiting, those responsible for the human resource function may be faced with employee relations issues, supervisor assistance or leave management issues. Human resource professionals or those assigned the human resource function simply do not have the necessary time to apply to best practices such as auditing, developing comprehensive job descriptions or updating policies and handbooks. HR Outfitters was created to assist in these and many other areas by focusing on the HUMAN aspect of human resources.
