Operations

An association’s day-to-day operations are critical to allowing its successful membership engagement: relationship-building, membership development, events, education, and advocacy.

Grau & Associates’ Operations services include legal, tax and risk management; governance; board management; finance and budgeting; and human resources.

HUMAN RESOURCES

Human resources is an undeniably critical piece of any association’s stability and success. It underpins efficiency, the organization’s well-being, and provides a way for capacity assessment and improvement.

How We Can Help

Beyond its role in providing grounded support and “soft skills” to an organization, the human resources department addresses a number of practical organizational and logistical needs: payroll management, contract vetting, benefits management, as well as reviews and performance management. Grau & Associates’ payroll system offers same-day direct deposit for employees and contractors, allowing associations to submit payroll when they’re ready, with the option of retaining their funds a bit longer. Grau & Associates works to get you and your association’s employees paid in a timely, predictable, and accurate way. Our team also assists your employees in ensuring accuracy with their W-4 withholdings and employee/employer deductions. Unlike other service providers that charge by the payroll, our services are offered at a flat, affordable monthly fee. In addition to payroll management, Grau & Associates offers contract vetting services to ensure the thoughtful review of internal and external contracts, as well as benefits management services and reviews/performance management. In the latter case, Grau & Associates works with association leadership to candidly assess the ways that members of the organization can improve their contributions to the association while acknowledging existing best practices that can be leveraged and adapted for future success.  Is your association seeking help establishing or refining its payroll, contracts processes, benefits management, and/or performance reviews? Please contact us today to get started.
