Human Resources Consulting

How do you define success? Is it money, happiness or a balance of both? How much money is enough and how do you define happiness? As a leader in your organization, where are you in the equation; and as an employee, what does your organization do to offer you both?

With any company, whether you are a small start-up company or a large international conglomerate, they both face the same two key challenges: (1) Hiring the Right People, with the greater challenge of (2) Keeping the Right People! This is where Strategic Human Resources Planning and Development practices come into action to partner with organizations to ensure that the right policies and programs are in place to create a Culture for Success. The added bonus to this is the recognition and branding as an Employer of Choice which is priceless. Examples within the tech industry include Amazon, Zappos, Google, Microsoft, IBM, Salesforce, Oracle, etc. Everyone must remember that they did not start off as a huge global organization, but instead started as small start-ups quickly growing into a multi-billion-dollar entity.

How did they do this? With the right leaders who believe and recognize the financial impact of creating and maintaining a Culture for Success. How are these leaders able to do this? By hiring, keeping and developing their most valuable asset; their Intellectual Capital. Their people! This is why people want to work for these organizations and head-hunters are always trying to poach people from these organizations. The better questions to ask are, why are these companies overflowing with qualified candidates when a job is posted? Why do the current employees not leave and why are they passionately supportive about their employers and employment?

How can we help you become an employer of choice?
