HR 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. They understand all operational facets of the departments they support, including strategic objectives, financial matters and personnel issues in order to deliver the most effective solutions possible. HR Consultants can also be used as a catalyst for helping a department or group foster new perceptions, to reframe or redefine a problem, or plan for the future. The most basic consulting is a brief, informal conversation. The more sophisticated consultation involves a complete intervention and can take several months for completion.
