human resources consulting
We offer HR consulting for organizations of any size. Small organizations, in particular, can benefit from formalized HR practices. You don’t need a full-time HR manager to implement beneficial practices—just contact us to get started today!
Here are some of the most pressing needs of small to midsize businesses:
Employee Handbook Revisions
Are you frustrated with having to make decisions about small, everyday personnel issues? Maybe you’re worried about treating employees fairly, but aren’t sure how to be consistent. Is there confusion about what steps to take for particular employee issues? If so, you need an updated employee handbook. Rather than making the organization inflexible and rule-bound, policies and procedures provide security, satisfaction, and confidence to your employees and managers. From dress codes to sick day policies, we can revise your handbook to meet your needs. Don't have a handbook at all? We can write a customized one for you.
Creating & Implementing Performance Appraisals
Do your employees know what you think of their work? Are there things that they could be doing better, but you’re just not sure how to tell them? Are your best employees getting feedback from you about how much you value them? If you’re not doing performance appraisals, then the answer probably “No!” Recent polling shows that only 1 in 4 employees feel like performance appraisal is valuable to them.
Performance appraisal doesn’t have to be complicated or stressful. Let our experts design a system that works for your organization and helps you retain your best employees, improves their quality of work, and protects your company from legal claims.
Clear & Updated Job Descriptions
If you had to replace an employee on short notice, could you tell job applicants what is actually involved in the job? Would you be able to give a new hire an updated list of her tasks, duties, and responsibilities? To protect the continuity and quality of your work, you need formal job descriptions in your organization.
We create and update these job descriptions to help formalize roles in the organization and help you get clear on who does what. Balancing tasks among different jobs can help employees be more efficient and effective, and formal job descriptions help organizations plan and organize better.
Effective Interview & Hiring Plans
Do you struggle to find employees who can do the work and fit your company culture? Do you think you’ve found the right person, just to learn later they’re not working out or see them quit a few months later? HR consulting can be a quick and targeted approach to ramping up your hiring effectiveness. If you don’t have the time to create your own structured interviews, let us do it for you! Or, get in touch to learn more about our hiring manager training, which helps them learn bias free hiring best practices.
