Firm offers to help supervisors with human resources

MONTROSE – A small human resources firm is offering its services to the Lee County Board of Supervisors to find potential problems such as fines or liabilities or savings in its personnel policies.

PJ Gruefe and Associates of Davenport would charge Lee County $2,500 for a human resources audit. Gruefe would look over the county’s policies on a number of issues from the job applications it uses, to FMLA and HIPAA compliance.

These were just three examples of the 29 listed on the proposal sheet provided by the company.

The county would be provided with a report summarizing the findings. If the company can’t fined at least $5,000 in potential fines, liabilities or savings, the audit will be free.

After the initial audit, PJ Greufe and Associates would continue to be an HR consultant for the county for $1,500 a month.

Supervisor Matt Pflug said with human resource professionals costing about $80,000 a year, having Gruefe may be a bargain.

Pflug also liked the proposed contract with the company that basically lets the county opt out at any time. He said the supervisors should be able to tell quickly if his services are worth $1,500 a month.

County Auditor Denise Fraise said Gruefe is working in Henry County and the auditor there had nothing but good things to say about his services.

The full board has not yet met with Gruefe, so Fraise was asked to contact him to see if he would be able to meet with the board on Thursday, Nov. 7. The board is moving its meeting to that day due to Election Day on Tuesday.

The board also discussed where the money would come from to pay for the service. They decided it would come out of the supervisors’ budget.

While not budgeted this year, it could be put in the budget for next year. Budget Director Cindy Renstrom was asked if there would be enough in the supervisors’ budget yet this year to cover the services. She said there would be.
