The best place to start is with an HR review. This will help you identify what HR-related processes exist and how effective they are. The review will also identify missing processes. We can establish a 12-month retainer engagement to work through some of the key gaps found during the HR review, as well as provide the coaching necessary to equip and guide the team member(s) responsible for HR. Access to experienced coaching and mentoring is critical to long-term success in the role.
