Human Resources

What is the most valuable asset at your place of work? HR’s involvement in respect to risk management is the “people” and efforts to prevent or minimize organizations exposure to liability. Managing risk is everyone’s concern on a daily basis and is part of meeting our business goals and objectives. In the area of Human Resources this includes recruitment, staffing, personnel policies, strategies, counseling and laying a foundation to work from. HR overlaps into all areas of your organization and has an active role in risk management to mitigate loss and ensure business continuity.

AMLJIA’s Human Resources department is here to help our members with employment related issues. We are here to help you with the “people” risks of your organization. Our Human Resource personnel can help with:

  • Staffing issues

  • Policies and Procedures

  • Employee Handbooks

  • Job Descriptions

  • Training

  • General Feedback

  • Counseling

Members can also contact our Human Resource department with issues concerning employment law or how to proceed with a specific employment related issue.

  • Standard Screening – for more responsible positions and permanent hire

  • Extended Screening – for positions involving increased responsibility or supervision of others

  • Integrity Check – for any positions involving significant responsibility, or access to cash or assets. 

The AMLJIA is providing this service in partnership with Greg Russell of Russell Consulting, LLC. Request a Personal History Background Check by contacting Sharon Tunnell at sharont@amljia.org or calling 1-800-337-3682.
