Optimize the performance of your human resource initiatives across the board.

We’d like to take this opportunity to help you
fully understand what HR consulting is and
the considerable benefits it provides.

What is HR Consulting?

Simply put, HR consulting is just as it sounds, consulting on all aspects of human resources. That includes everything from streamlining your recruiting process to implementation of more valuable HR technologies and all that falls in between.

The goal of human resources consulting is to improve productivity, efficiency, and communication by increasing the performance of your HR program. This is acheived by identifying your business’s unique needs, developing a strategy for accomplishment, and creating and implementing systems and processes for long-term success.

Benefits of HR Consulting

The benefits of human resources consulting are vast. To keep things clear and concise, here are a few of our favorites:

1

Expertise

Possibly the number one benefit of HR consulting is the influx of expertise that it delivers. HR consultants are, by definition, experts in their field. Moreover, they’re those individuals who are operating in the top percentile and are familiar with what it takes to help their clients set and achieve their HR goals.

That means HR consulting helps you to evaluate the unique needs for your business and develop unique solutions to meet those needs. If they encounter education or systems gaps, they can
implement the types of training identified to be the most effective for your team.

HR consultants work to implement major change that has a dramatic impact in a rapid timeframe. They can do so because they have the experience necessary to make more accurate evaluations and
understand exactly how to use those
insights to your advantage.

Vision

One of the most common problems in HR is a business owner or HR team’s inability to recognize the impediments that are holding back their performance. If all of your systems are functioning and everything is going according to plan, there may still be a need to evaluate your systems or plans.

HR consultants are able to help businesses identify weak links or sticking points that they aren’t able to identify themselves. By providing external objective insights into your HR program, a consultant can help you overcome obstacles you didn’t know were holding you back.

3

Strategy

The expertise provided via HR consulting allows for the creation of a highly effective HR strategy. This typically replaces an outdated or ineffective approach and often represents the first formal HR strategy in a company’s history.

Rather than depending on online research or templates to creates your strategy, an HR consultant can work with you hand in hand to craft a highly effective plan of action, implement the systems that suport it, and optimize those systems to keep your HR machine running at full speed.

4

Focus

Another critical benefit of HR consulting, restoring focus to your primary business objectives, is also one of the least recognized. Time saved is money earned, and when a comparably minimal investment allows you to generate the optimal performance from your HR in a relatively short amount of time, the time savings can be significant.

Consider simply operating at a sub-optimal capacity for years and the impact that has on your bottom line. Then consider attempting to optimize your HR program on your own while focusing on the various other business initiatives that you handle daily, as well as how long that process would take and whether it would be effective or even get done.

By restoring focus to your primary business initiatives, you’ll be able to streamline your HR program, improve performance in other departments, and save considerably over the long term.

5

Cost

Cost is certainly one of the most important benefits you’ll receive from HR consulting. By working with Hire Up, you will receive all the benefits of working with a human resources expert without having to hire them directly.

Furthermore you’ll have a high-level expert available to train/support your current HR staff without having to replace employees or hire additional staff in an attempt to cover any gaps. Finally, the cost of operating at a suboptimal level for months or years to come is eliminated in a short time frame when you hire experts to optimize your HR program.

How Hire Up Delivers HR
Consulting Success

You’ve seen the benefits that effective HR consulting can deliver. When it comes time to optimize your human resources program, it’s important to understand exactly what you’ll be getting.

As California’s premier human resource and hiring experts, Hire Up is continually adapting our proven processes to keep up with the rapidly evolving needs of our clients.

HR Audits

HR audits allow us to evaluate your entire human resources program from top to bottom. We identify weak points and make recommendations about how to go about optimizing your HR initiatives.

Compliance Consulting

It’s critical that your business remains compliant to the ever-changing rules and regulations while operating in California and beyond. We provide comprehensive consulting on employee compliance in California and other states as well as on ACA compliance, ensuring your policies are always up-to-date and abiding by current laws.

Employee Handbook Creation

A well-crafted employee handbook can have a massive impact when onboarding new hires. It can also help to ensure all of your employees conduct themselves according to your internal policies and guidelines. We can help you create a highly effective handbook that covers all the necessary elements and optimizes your HR team’s ability to uphold internal regulations.

Safety Consulting

Employee safety should be a priority for any company in order to reduce the risk of accidents and the resulting negative impacts on business. We’ll work with you to provide a comprehensive evaluation of your employee safety issues and help you determine ways to improve any weak points we were able to identify.

Situational Consulting (compensation, harassment, discrimination, etc.)

We also provide consulting on specific HR related scenarios. Most businesses encounter issues with regards to compensation, harassment, discrimination, and more. We can help your business handle these situations more effectively in order to reduce any negative impact and streamline the resolution process.

Medical or Other Leave Requirements

Investigations

Employee Filing and I-9 Support

The penalties for not correctly filing and completing I-9’s can be in the thousands of dollars. Employers need to know the proper legal guidelines and have a standard operating procedure in place that clearly instructs employees on the process. Without a formal system, you’re not only risking the company’s exposure, but also potentially individuals’ exposure with identity theft on the rise today. Hire Up can assist in setting up these guidelines, establishing procedures for your manuals to ensure that everyone is following the process, and also enroll the company in E-Verify. E-Verify is a free Internet-based system available to all businesses to confirm employment eligibility. The system compares information entered on the I-9 Form to records available to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration. Having Hire Up implement E-Verify provides your business with verification that your employees are legally authorized to work in the United States, and can also alert employees to mismatches in their government records.
