Plumas, Lassen & Modoc Counties, CA

    16. A Little History • 2001: NoRTEC issues a Business First directive. • Change begins and pain is felt throughout the entire consortium. • Programs begin to undergo gradual transformations. • Mini-victories begin to surface as the potential for Business Services becomes clear. Excitement grows!!

    17. Clearly Define Your Goals, Direction and Reasoning Behind Putting Business First! For our rural areas, over 90% of businesses are SMALL – less than 5 employees. Business services means keeping them strong, being involved with their hiring process and compliance needs and staying in regular contact. If the business community is healthy, the job seeker can only benefit.

    18. Internal Shift to Business First • Begin to educate WIB’s, Boards, and Staff. • Direction must be supported from the top down. • Review and/or streamline traditional processes that conflict with the Business First philosophy • All processes should support and be consistent with Business First goals.

    19. Plan should be dynamic-reviewed as needed. Focus may change depending on needs of business climate. Forced our organization to do a SWOT analysis. Develop a Business Plan • BenefitsProvides a road map, helped us address strengths & weaknesses (staffing – do we • have who we need to do what we want to do? • Created opportunity to leverage staff/hire staff with HR backgrounds).

    20. Staffing Specialist vs. Job Developer • Realign organizational chart, job descriptions, duties of staff to reflect Business First focus.

    21. Staff Skills Matrix • Identify staff talent, skills and experience With limited staff and decreased funding, our counties had to better utilize their current staff. Who would have known that we had so much talent right before us! Traci Holt, pictured left, was hired as community coordinator. With a great background inhuman resources, today Traci’s role has changed to AFWD-Lassen Operations Manager and Senior HR Consultant. Traci is responsible for public relations, coordinating HR solutions for business services, promoting one-stop center activities, facility management, and daily staff supervision. She is also very involved with local economic development. Traci Holt with Megan Dahle, wife of County Supervisor Brian Dahle, who owns and operates Big Valley Seed Company. 

    22. Changing the Program Culture • Make Business First an organizational focus and not a stand alone department. Involve all staff in planning and product development. • Remember: Change can be very difficult for some people. Celebrate each step and find ways to ease the stress. • The more your staff knows and understands the business community, the more they can support the effort.

    23. Changing the Program Culture • Some staff are more “entrepreneurial” than others and can help create new roles for themselves. Help find roles for those less able at knowing how to transfer their talents. Some roles are very public, others are behind the scenes. All are important. • Become a first point of contact for the business community. This takes adopting a “whatever it takes” attitude to meet the needs of business. They need a quick response. How will you make that happen?

    24. Natural Flow of Being the First Point of Contact Haws, Theobald and Aumen, CPA’s • A premier CPA firm with 10 employees, Haws, Theobald and Auman experienced turnover when three long standing team members left the firm. • Instead of placing a newspaper ad, Ken Theobald, CPA Partner and WIB member, contacted his local One Stop instead. Staff at Haws, Theobald and Auman, CPA’s

    25. First Point of Contact • Working closely with the firm, AFWD HR Consultant Holly Schirmer (and their first point of contact) wrote and placed a large classified ad to attract candidates for Payroll Specialist and Full Charge Bookkeeper. • She then collected applications at the One Stop, performed initial prescreenings, set up interviews, participated in the interviews, checked references and sent follow-up letters on behalf of the firm.

    26. Haws, Theobald and Aumen “ Working with AFWD saved us a tremendous amount of time and expense throughout the entire process. Holly even performed background checks which are very time consuming. It was also great to have her expertise during the interview process to ensure we were in compliance with current hiring practices. We are proud to have AFWD as a new ‘partner’ in our business – they are tremendous resource to our communities. ” --Ken Theobald

    27. Ongoing Professional Development California Staffing ProfessionalsCalifornia Accredited Consultants (CAC), NoRTEC 80+ CAC’s • Society of Human Resource Management • Professional Human Resource Certification (PHR) • Senior Professional Human Resource Certification (SPHR) • Business Services with Greg Newton • Marketing with Celina Shands • Attending our own workshops! • Teaching and researching our own trainings!

    28. Establish yourself as a Credible Business Partner. Allow time for this step to happen. Look for opportunities to partner with non-traditional partners/create subtle image shift. External Shift to Business First! For our counties, an HR toolkit, varied business workshops and special events helped establish us as the go-to source for business matters.

    29. Integrate Job Seeker and Business Services • Internal Communication-Promote constant exposure to business needs and issues. • Utilize staff strengths identified in the matrix. Assure staff are educated on business needs. • Streamline processes and you will get results. Increased WIA enrollments and increased job placements equals increased customer satisfaction! How can we help? Provide job ready clients.
