Retainer Program
Being a retainer client of The Management Trust means you have full access to the knowledge and experience of a fully trained human resource professional.  We’re not talking about an associate with limited experience, but someone who has over 25 years of hands-on knowledge of what to do and what to say in almost any circumstance that can come your way.

Unlimited Phone/Fax/E-mail Access

As a retainer client of The Management Trust, you have access to full-time advice for your everyday employee relations problems.  Why worry whether or not you should terminate an employee when all you have to do is make a quick call and get an expert opinion on the subject.  With only a quick phone call or e-mail you will know exactly what to do and what to say.  For example:
  • What can I do/not do when it comes to talking with an applicant?
  • What should I say if I want to discipline an employee?
  • How should I approach an applicant who I think may be disabled?
  • What should I write down after an employee interview?
  • How do I get an employee/applicant to tell me what I need to know?
  • Should I send a new employee a welcoming letter?  What should be in it? How should I handle my meeting with a difficult employee...and what should I say to their to get their attention?

and on and on….

In the future, these and hundreds of other questions will be a quick e-mail or phone call away. If you are long-distance, you are provided with a toll-free number so there is no excuse for not calling.  Of course, with e-mail, you are in touch wherever there is a computer with Internet access. won't go a day or two without a return call.  We always return calls within a few hours and never forget to follow-up.  It's always about the details and we are very good at making sure everything gets done on time.

Examples of other questions or information right at your fingertips:
  • An appraisal for a troublesome employee
  • A warning notice that is expertly written
  • A termination letter that is to the point and without bias
  • A new employee application form
  • What should be in an employee's personnel folder?
  • What posters must I have on premises?
  • What kind of waiver forms should I be using?
  • When do I have to pay a terminated employee?

And much, much more.
