Services We Offer
With 25 years of experience across a variety of industries and organization sizes, we have implemented many successful HCM programs that drive business performance. We have seen programs that are misaligned, process-driven, and disengaging for employees as well. We use this experience in our consulting services to ensure that you get the best, custom-tailored support for your business’ projects for long-term sustainability.
Below is how we typically work with organizations to build a premier human capital management program:
Project-Based Human Capital Consulting
Strong human capital management programs can drive performance. High performing organizations define and execute strong people strategies that support and drive the businesses’ strategy. A comprehensive and integrated HCM program attracts and retains the talent that you need in this evolving business environment. An integrated HCM program should not be an “off the shelf” or “best practices only” based approach – studies continue to show that a tailored employee experience, employee value proposition and employer brand will drive business results.
With a combination of market analysis, organization assessments, and data analytics, we can support the creation, evolution or complete transformation of HCM programs. Whether you are looking at the whole HCM program or just a component of it that needs realignment, we bring decades of experience in HCM program development and deployment, in a large variety of industries, to provide the tailored transition plan that will always be focused on aligning with business results and strategy.
Future of Work Consulting Services
How our employees work is changing…rapidly and irreversibly.
In real-time, we are witnessing significant shifts in the workplace in how we build workforces. At the same time, our employees are rethinking how they engage with employers. The Fourth Industrial Revolution, demographical changes, and new socio-cultural attitudes to the world of work are building employees who see their careers in multiple stages and are not thinking of a linear path toward the top. Research shows that employees will shift or completely pivot their careers 3-7 times in their lifetime.
We work with business leaders to make sense of this transformation and understand how it will impact businesses regarding people strategy and HCM programs. We develop targeted action plans to address the shift from career paths to Career Pathfinding.
Coaching for HR Leaders
The Institute of Coaching cites that over 70% of individuals who receive coaching benefited from improved work performance, relationships and more effective communication skills. They also reported that a huge 86% of companies feel that they recouped the investment they made into coaching plus more on top. Studies show that coaching is effective at reducing procrastination and facilitating goal attainment and there is a growing body of empirical research that supports the findings that business coaching really does facilitate goal achievement. HR Leaders are in a unique situation where their role is to support the development of leaders throughout the organization and often are overlooked in the development that they need to be a strategic, impactful HR Leader.
Ongoing Human Capital Support
Interim & Fractional CHRO / Chief People Officer Services
The senior HR role in an organization is critical to ensure alignment of human capital / people strategy with business strategy and results. The CHRO should be focused on the strategy of human capital and how HCM programs grow revenue and the organization for the broad and often global organization for the long-term.
INTERIM CHRO Services: In the event that the organization has a gap in the CHRO or Chief People Officer role, we provide Senior HR Capability in the interim to support short to medium range gaps. We will also work towards setting up the strategy in preparation of onboarding a future CHRO or Chief People Officer.
FRACTIONAL CHRO Services: A unique approach to providing strategic HCM services to businesses that need such capability but are not ready or able to commit to a full-time role. Small-to-medium size businesses in growth mode as well as private equity may need this focused approach.
HCM Due Diligence & Post-Merger Integration Services
The evidence is overwhelming: acquiring companies can neither focus too much or too early on a merger or acquisition transaction’s people implications. Strategic HCM plays a critical role in determining whether a potential deal realizes its strategic, financial and operational goals. HCM can provide vital business information and expertise that may influence the identification of potential partners from a talent perspective, the structure of the deal from an organizational perspective, and effective timing for key decisions and milestones. In addition, strategic HCM incorporates a robust change management and people strategy for a smooth post-merger integration.
With 20 years of M&A experience in HCM, we provide the insight and expertise an organization needs to navigate the challenges during the transactions and integration.
Human Capital Project Management
HR Leaders and teams continually juggle competing projects, priorities, and conflicting roles. Working across many fields and sectors, we function as a Human Capital Project Manager to ensure that human resources programs support the long-term goals of an HR team. We work with the leader to oversee a variety of administrative programs and functions, and often navigate the areas of customer service and employee development. We help the leaders juggle many projects with the needs of many individuals and developing new HR programs and initiatives, including training seminars to align to the business and people strategies. Projects typically include development of HCM project and training plans, research and preparation of reports on HCM trends, creation and revisions of HCM programs and coaching department heads.
