HR Advisory

SERVICE SUMMARY

HR Advisory

Our experienced Consultants can provide expertise and guidance in the absence of an in-house HR resource on any HR related matter such as employment advice, contracts, policies, disciplinary or grievance concerns, etc.

As part of our HR Advisory services, we provide support to companies who are experiencing any changes to their business structure due to internal restructuring, mergers or acquisitions.  We will review and evaluate the organisation’s current structure, understand workflows and linkages between departments. We can assist in managing and analysing the HR issues which may result from the restructuring process.

We can also assist in conducting an audit which analyses your organisation’s HR programmes to identify strengths and areas for improvement. Through this audit, we will be able to provide recommendations and suggestions to remedy these problems in order for the organisation to better deliver on its people strategy.
