About Us

Why hire a Human Resources (HR) consultant?

Because it's good business practice.

Consider the analogy of an insurance policy bought not because we anticipate a car accident or a major medical crisis, but because we want to afford ourselves protection from risk. Among the many risks that can be curtailed in a company are consequences from:

  • Failing to fulfill legal requirements, and
  • Lost productivity caused or exacerbated by non-existent or inadequate HR policies and practices.

HR "insurance" needs discovered by an HR audit could minimize an organization's legal and financial exposure. By creating a sound work environment, employees focus on producing the results needed for long-term success and profitability.

Our Mission:
To protect companies from the consequences of illegal or inappropriate workplace behaviors, policies or practices through proactive Human Resources (HR) planning and consulting services.

Working Values:

  • Responsiveness — Usually within one business day.
  • Confidentiality — Sensitive, practical interventions and advice on internal matters.
  • Competence — Experienced in designing, evaluating and effecting change in Human Resources functions and practices with a vigilant eye toward legal compliance.
  • Focused Urgency — Objectives are met on time, on budget and with a high level of customer satisfaction.
