Q: How would my organization work with you?
A: We can work together on a project basis, or via a retained scenario where I act as your senior HR leader a few hours per month with pre-defined deliverables, schedules, and budgets. Several of my clients have found this to be the most productive arrangement for them, as it balances the need for strategic leadership with budget realities.
Q: Will you also recruit employees for us?
A: I collaborate with Avanta Consulting, a Vancouver-based provider of complete recruiting solutions. You can engage us for retained, contingent, or complete recruitment outsourcing where we employ the recruiter, supply the technology, and handle all aspects of the candidate lifecycle.
Q: Will you work with small organizations?
A: Yes. I work with organizations of all sizes and in all sectors, and I especially enjoy working with organizations focused on technology, creativity, or positively changing our world.
Q: We already have an HR person. Why would we need you?
A: Your HR person can be fantastic, yet still need help meeting the needs of the business, either because of significant growth, change, other demands on his/her time, or unfamiliarity with specific HR areas.
Q: How would I justify the cost of a consultant?
A: Every organization spends money on its people – the question is whether your investment is yielding the best results. I can help:
• recruit higher quality employees
• grow leadership skills
• improve execution
• improve morale and retention.
