This HR service includes day-to-day employee relations support and coaching, assistance in hiring the right people, compensation and rewards, performance management, employment law and terminations. These customizable and cost-effective services are offered virtually and/or on-site based on your needs. Please contact us for details.

Performance Management

We have developed a simple and effective Performance Management Program that is customizable and will provide the necessary support to implement it in your organization. It is designed specifically for small to medium sized organizations and is cost-effective. Our program is called “Three Effective Conversations” and focuses on setting clear objectives that are aligned with the business plan, key measurable actions and competencies. We will provide you with a detailed performance management format and guidebook that outlines the whole process, and performance management training on the overall process. Contact us for more details.

Compensation, Total Rewards and Pay Equity

We take a total compensation approach and will review base salary, bonus, long-term incentives and benefits for one or all of your jobs. Using our customizable Job Evaluation System (that is Ontario pay equity compliant), we work with you to evaluate jobs, and will design salary structure(s) and incentive/bonus plans to motivate your workforce. If you are not pay equity compliant, we can help!

Recruitment and Executive Search

We offer a unique, customizable and cost-effective way of helping you recruit the talent you need. Our 9 Step Recruitment Process allows you to select (some or all of) the steps where you need assistance in the recruitment process. This includes developing role profiles of the ideal candidates, assisting with advertising and screening candidates, interviewing and selecting the right people to take your organization to the next level. We specialize in recruiting for human resources and finance/accounting/banking positions and other professional office positions.

We also offer recruitment solutions  to help you optimize the most efficient, effective recruitment process for your organization and ensure the best fit candidates for your jobs. 

Leadership Development

We will train and coach supervisors on how to: handle people issues, coach employees, provide constructive feedback and evaluate performance. We also offer a Leadership/Career Foundations program based on core leadership competencies for succession and career planning.

Employee Surveys

We help you measure and improve employee engagement. Drawing on our expertise from working in the big consulting firms, we can design customized employee surveys and conduct focus groups. These will help you gain a better understanding of employee priorities and identify specific courses of action to improve the workplace.

Human Resources Management (HRM) Assessment 

An assessment of your human resources programs will help your organization identify any areas for improvement or action (i.e., your policies, procedures, programs and processes). For small to medium sized organizations in the GTA, we offer a confidential one hour general assessment of your policies and procedures (with no obligations) in an easy to read colour-coded summary report. This is time well spent to help you identify and prioritize any action items and potential liabilities.
