Why use an HR Consultant?   HR consultants bridge the gap between strategic HR practices and the administrative tasks associated within any organization.  HR consultants can and do bring new strategic perspective to your organization and provide the data, communication and means necessary to drive change and ensure any organization is successful large or small in project work, employee relations issues, communication and organizational change management.

Experienced and knowledgeable HR consultants bring a wide range of industry and project experience to your organization.  They understand training, employee relations, labor and employment law, compensation, benefits, policies and procedures, conflict resolution, project management, communication strategy, job descriptions, workplace investigations, engagement surveys, substance abuse issues, employee assistance programs, organizational culture, safety and health, finance, audits, etc.  The successful projects consultants complete for other organizations, translates into more efficient and timely services.

Think about it, you hire an HR Consultant that provides products and services across multiple industries.  Most organizations cannot and will not find an in-house HR professional or administrative manager with that level of subject matter expertise.  Each organization and industry have unique laws and regulations that will impact the work being performed.  The consultant must understand these complex and evolving laws.  The level of research and decision making will add value to any organization.

HR consultants are highly educated and specialized in the profession, with continued and evolving investment in education, certification and training to ensure their knowledge, skills and abilities remain competitive in a very competitive industry.  In many cases, HR consultants work by themselves.  They are the marketing department, the finance department, the operations department, the supply chain department and the sales department.  They understand all aspects of organizations and the challenges faced within.  The question isn’t why use an HR consultant but rather, why not use an HR consultant?
