All of our client HR solutions are built with the three integral roles of HR in mind: Culture, Protection & Productivity. In other words, a solid HR function should have systems in place that 1) cultivate the company’s culture; 2) protect the company; and 3) increase employee productivity. When working well, this leads to = Organizational Performance.
Workplace culture reflects everything from recruitment to termination, and everything in between — including vision, mission, purpose, values, roles and responsibilities, work environment and symbolism, all of which must align to create an ideal structure. Every organization’s culture is different – the key is to define yours and align everything to it.
Just as you insure your business against external threats, an investment in HR can help protect you (and your employees) against threats that are within your control. These include legislative threats related to the employment of people.
Performance is the goal! The role of HR is to put systems in place that increase productivity to enhance overall performance. This is only possible when the right structure is in place and everything done within the organization aligns to it.
For all of our clients, we first analyze their current HR infrastructure in order to make recommendations for change. The recommendations will fall into either the “protect” or “productivity” bucket and will be made within the context of each organization’s unique “culture”.
Although we are not legal counsel or practitioners of law, one of our roles (protection) is to ensure that the organizations we work with are in compliance with all relevant legislation that impacts human resources. As such, it is important that we understand this legislation from an HR perspective. In doing so, the knowledge and recommendations we pass on to you do not constitute legal advice; but rather is meant to make you aware and ensure you are looking at everything from a ‘protection’ perspective – in addition to culture and productivity. We consult with our legal counsel on a regular basis and where applicable, we encourage you to consult with your own.
