Human Resources Consultants

HR Consultants provide guidance and support to managers and employees of designated departments with special emphasis on issues related to performance management and employee relations. HR Consultants understand operational facets of the departments, colleges, and institutes they support, including strategic goals and the human resources aspects related to those goals in order to deliver the most effective solutions possible.
