Human Resources

A strong people-focused strategy, supported by processes that support the line-of-sight to the business, is key to achieving change and transition goals.

Professional Transition

Why Strategic Human Resources?

For many businesses, people related costs make up over 50% of the expenses on the income statement. Today, every business is a people business and your HR processes can either support your overall business goals - or work against them.

In contrast to traditional outsourced HR generalist services, we specialize in the people-based strategies and plans that drive your business forward. We start our client conversations by identifying the overall change goal and then develop the appropriate supporting plans to help you achieve them. Often, this starts with a review of the P&L to identify key metrics that offer opportunity for growth.

What we offer

We offer both project and subscription based engagements for Strategic HR support. Our project work is geared to businesses that are looking for focused support for HR process design. For our larger clients, this can also include interim management of the HR function, support for recruiting the in-house successor, and knowledge transfer.

We can help overhaul your recruiting process to reinforce employer branding, give you better leverage over your time, and better predictability of the individual's success in the job. We offer performance development process design that reinforces company values and encourages your people to bring the best of themselves to the job. We also work on compensation strategy and design, which is generally focused on implementing variable pay plans for the first time.

Communications is an important part of these engagements, supporting the behavior changes and drawing a line of sight from business results to individual and organizational performance and rewards.
