700+ best practice guides. iWorkwell’s proprietary recipe-like articles provide essential details to direct anyone in an executive or managerial role “how to” make each decision and perform each activity — covering all 16 HR topics:
Rely on this large and expanding library of instructional guides for everything you need to know and do in HR. Unlike the speculative opinion pieces, narratives and hard-to-read white papers found elsewhere, iWorkwell articles are succinct and to the point; they’re action oriented, include checklists, and help you complete the task at hand. To cover each topic in-depth, our articles are typically 1,500-3,500 words, though longer if necessary. Think of “Best Practices” as a comprehensive cookbook: when you need to do X, you only need that recipe — you don’t read all of the other recipes from A to Z, and you don’t have to be a master chef. The instructions are easy to digest and easy to follow, so that no matter who you are, you’ll keep up with changes in the field, save time, and consistently follow best practices.
What’s more, Personal Alerts keep you up-to-date: You choose the HR topics (e.g., ACA, ERISA, Wellness) or website sub-sections you care about and we’ll automatically notify you (via email or on the site) of any relevant additions or updates.
Regulations & Forms…
8,500+ legal documents. All of the federal & state regulations, forms, posters, notices & instructions, state-by-state comparisons, and Smart Forms & Templates you need (updated daily). Get up-to-date legal information about business administration, compensation & benefits, operations, safety & workplace security, filled out online or emailed to employees for them to complete, print and sign.
Save time and hassle searching your office or the Internet for the right information. Avoid paying $1,000 per year for quarterly subscriptions of cumbersome booklets or CDs which may already be out of date by the time they are printed, packaged, addressed, shipped and arrive on your desk. On iWorkwell, you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips within seconds.
Account personalization allows you to choose your priority content (e.g., My States; My States Recent; My Favorites). And Personal Alerts keep you up-to-date: You choose the HR topics, regulations, forms, or specific US states you care about and we’ll automatically notify you (via email or on the site) of any relevant additions or updates.
Create or update the employee handbook you need to be compliant and communicate company policies to employees.
iWorkwell’s Policy Wizard provides recommended text and guides you through the process of tailoring each policy to your organization, in order to suit your workforce, culture, size, industry and location.
Thereafter, iWorkwell retains your custom-made employee handbook online and notifies you automatically (via email or on the site) whenever iWorkwell updates language of any policy you included. Instead of paying lawyers by the hour to write or update your handbook, you’ll save $3,000-$10,000 in legal fees.
HR Around the Web
Search for information, or simply let this personal news-clipping service help you stay current in your field. Choose up to 5 topics of interest — accounting, finance, leadership, legal compliance, payroll and other HR topics related to managing people — to receive an array of relevant articles, hot off the presses… from over 100 of the best sources such as Harvard Business Review, Human Resource Executive, MIT Sloan School, New York Times, Professional Pensions, Reuters, The Economist, Washington Post, Wharton, etc.
Jobs & Salaries
Attract and retain employees at the appropriate pay level. If you’re paying too little, your good employees will leave. If you’re paying too much, you’re wasting limited resources which could be better used elsewhere. Instead, get the facts to get it right: enter geographic location and job title for the latest monthly compensation data and job descriptions.
Save your Favorites or frequently-used best practice guides, smart forms, policies, etc. in this organized storage space and work area.
6,000+ professional training courses or programs on every useful topic, in all mediums & formats (online & interactive, videos for group sessions to complement an in-person trainer/facilitator, and written materials — exercises, workbooks, PPTs, quizzes & tests), covered in-depth (1/2 – 5 hours per course).
Access the best online courses money can buy, and ensure that employees are trained following federal & state regulations, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, which requires that all U.S. organizations — not just publicly traded companies — provide extensive compliance training.
Increase productivity, satisfaction and retention by upgrading employees’ skills with thousands of courses covering major business and technical topics. As an iWorkwell member, you’ll save thousands of training dollars per employee each year. Hypothetical example: If you trained only 5 employees, you’d save $10,000-15,000 per year. Translate that to 100 employees … or 1,000.
Want to know what your customers really think? How about your suppliers… or your staff? Conduct surveys for market research or collect feedback from various stakeholders. Analyze this data — responses, complaints, ideas — and make improvements: boost employee morale and retention; improve product quality and service; increase customer satisfaction; spark product innovation.
Verify criminal, credit, driving, educational and employment history. Easily and economically reduce your risks associated with hiring mistakes (e.g., unqualified staff, violence, theft, harassment) and make informed decisions using this service that’s #1 in accuracy and client satisfaction.
Ask an Expert
Receive individualized advice — fast, when you need it: submit a question, and an expert in that specific HR topic area will get back to you. “Ask An Expert” is not technical support or customer service (both of which are free). Rather, this service delivers answers to your questions that are specific to your particular situation. Unlike our competitors, iWorkwell answers your questions via a true expert in that topic (e.g., ERISA, sales comp, employee wellness) who spends as much time as needed (generally 2-3 hours) to clarify facts regarding the situation, research if necessary, and communicate with you until the matter is resolved.
