“I was looking for answers to HR questions related to pay such as overtime pay for caregivers and how to handle travel time pay for my agency. I did some research on my own but I wasn’t sure I was getting the best advice.
Through Hurricane Marketing, I heard about the services offered by Gere Consulting and decided to contact Anne-Lise. She was very professional and kind. She made sure she has a complete understanding of my issue. She thoroughly explained what was involved and provided me with

“I got considerable insight into the laws and common sense advice to solve my issues. I have a much clearer understanding of how to deal with “on call’ time and the resulting compensation as they apply to my unique business structure. I found Anne-Lise to have a strong grasp of the law. Thanks to her experience working with home care, she provides useful perspective on how home care agencies deal with issues.”

“I was looking for help on employee recognition and looking for ideas to improve what we already do at Griswold. I contacted Anne-Lise for help. She gave me good ideas and made useful suggestions. In particular, she helped me think of some new ways to approach employee recognition. In addition to answering my questions, she also pointed out some other items to follow up on (e.g. insurance of caregivers using their personal vehicle on the job). I recommend Gere Consulting to other home care providers who need help with their HR.”

“I was trying to understand recent changes in the Labor Laws concerning overtime and how it would affect my homecare agency. I had researched the internet for answers to my questions but the information was conflicting and confusing. Searching online for help with labor law compliance in the homecare industry, I found the website for Gere Consulting. There were all sorts of interesting and helpful information for employers like me. I was impressed with the level of professionalism so I decided to call.
Anne-Lise helped me implement overtime pay for my caregivers, paid travel time and training time for our employees. She also revised our Employee Handbook to reflect these changes. She was very responsive to my needs and had answers to my questions. I found her to be knowledgeable about human resources in the home care industry. I will probably need help with human resources projects in the future and enlist Anne-Lise’s help again.”

“We are so pleased to have Gere Consulting as our partner.
When we changed our payroll provider, we lost access to their HR Services. Payday Payroll suggested Gere Consulting as an HR service provider. Based on this recommendation and the information found on her website, we decided to contact her. What we value most in our relationship with Anne-Lise is that she provides Klett Consulting with timely information specific to our business as a federal contractor. She is also on the look-out for new regulations which may affect our current and future business operations. She not only alerts us but she also makes recommendation for proper action.”

“Developing more precise job descriptions has solved a number of problems. It allows employees to have input into the description and eases the process of comparing responsibilities when working to determine equity in compensation.cHaving regular updates on HR challenges and changes in employment law is helpful to our management as it allows us to “double check” that we haven’t missed anything.”

“Many of the most daunting issues I’ve faced as owner of a quickly growing business are related to human resources. I know how important my first employees are to the ultimate success of my business. I was introduced to Anne-Lise through a business mentor who recommended her for her HR expertise in consulting with businesses of all sizes. Since 2014, Anne-Lise has provided me prompt, actionable advice and information on several employee issues. I look forward to our continued relationship to support my business.”

“With 80 employees, establishing clear channels of communication within our organization had been our greatest frustration. Gere Consulting Associates LLC has provided a training solution to help our leadership team communicate effectively and share communication skills with the staff. As a result, we have seen a marked improvement in production. Prompted by growing concerns about an outdated performance evaluation system, PAA has once again turned to Gere Consulting Associates LLC to guide us through the process of developing a state of the art system.”
