HR Consulting & Outsourcing
We assist with setting up a company’s “HR basics” including: recruiting employees, establishing policies and procedures, determining compensation and benefit programs, researching payroll and benefit providers.
We provide a comprehensive review of your company’s current HR practices and provide detailed recommendations addressing any gaps, vulnerabilities and opportunities.
For smaller companies that may not have the need for a full-time HR Director but need HR expertise, we provide practical and tactical HR consulting services on a retained basis.
For small to medium-sized companies with a HR professional on staff but in need of strategic HR solutions, we are here to help on a project basis.
We serve clients both onsite and virtually, on a weekly or monthly basis, dependent on the organizational needs.
Outsourced HR services include: Job Analysis/Job Descriptions, Recruiting, Benefits Review, Policy and Procedure/Employee Handbook Review, Performance Management and Reviews, Organizational Design, Compensation Strategy and Analysis, Employee Engagement Initiatives and HR Analytics
