Advantages of Using an HR Consultant

As a business leader you’ll already know if your business needs help, but it might be that you are struggling to define the need or think you can probably muddle through in any case…

  • You might be a CEO/MD of a growing business that can’t yet justify a permanent strategic HR presence on the Board…but you know you need new input to help your business make the step change necessary for substantial growth or performance improvement.
  • You might have a development issue within your leadership team or with a key player, and you need help to structure your approach to the issue and identify a way forward to achieve a positive outcome.
  • You might be an HR Manager who needs some guidance and support to deliver a project, and need a professional review to sense check and support to conclusion.

Whatever the challenge, don’t underestimate the role an HR leader can play in supporting you, your team and your business to achieve your commercial objectives.

We can provide that practical, high level expert knowledge and leadership by working closely with you and your key stakeholders to enable you to articulate the issues you face as a business and team. We can help you put in place a firm foundation from which you can develop your organisation and people to support performance improvement, growth and profitability.

What does that actually mean?

It means the development or enhancement, of a commercially sound, practical strategy which recognises:

  • Business challenges and strengths – growth forecast and affordability
  • Employee engagement as a key component of successful growth
  • Pay, Reward and Recognition within an environment of restraint
  • Communications as critical to engendering employee loyalty and commitment, that need to be open, honest and inclusive
  • Corporate Governance and Social Responsibility reflecting culture, legal obligation, your ethical values, and those of your investors, employees, clients and suppliers.
  • Organisation Design, to ensure that your structure is effective and you recruit well to support it now and for the future, as well as considering the constantly changing market place.

If you are experiencing HR and/or people issues, it is likely that we can help. Please contact Pauline Jeffers, Head of HR Consulting at GKI for further information;
