What a "Human Resources Consultant" does and how they will engage with their client:"

Human Resource Consulting

Coach current human resources personnel (or responsible parties) by evaluating the hiring, retention, and exit processes of employees to assess their quality, efficiency, and effectiveness in supporting the strategy of their organization. Included in this evaluation is auditing the organization's compliance to applicable employment laws, as in the employee handbook, policies, and other related forms and practices; determining the value and effectiveness of employee engagement programs in place for providing feedback opportunities up and down your organization, and in maintaining a pulse on having a positive culture; assessing the development and training programs in place to prepare future leaders within your organization, along with supporting employees in having the required skills to be successful in their current roles.

The initial process is to identify with the client the major challenges, issues, and opportunities they are facing.

In a short time, Harry put the word out, interviewed prospects, and brought us three qualified people to interview. Harry did all the legwork, (we did not have the time or experience); and he shared his helpful insights during the hiring process. We believe working with Mr. Hinkle brought us a candidate who fits our company culture and will succeed in the sales position."
