Find the Right HR Partner in Canada

hr consultants canada

Does your business or organization have the HR support it needs to succeed? Human Resources plays a huge role in the overall growth and development of our teams, building a solid foundation for the future, and ensuring legal compliance with all relevant work standards. While major corporations and organizations are often able to consolidate their approach to HR through a dedicated in-house team, the reality for most other businesses is that partnering with an external firm is far more convenient and budget accommodating.

At Pivot HR, we’re proud to partner with clients across Canada to make sure you have the tools you need to succeed in today’s workplace. From customized seminars, training, workplace investigations and culture audits, we’re here to help you navigate HR with ease and peace of mind. We know that choosing the right external partner can feel overwhelming; if you’re in need of a new HR Partner, but aren’t quite sure what to look for, here are some guiding questions to keep in mind:

Background and Experience

HR is an incredibly diverse field, and every sector has its own unique needs. In order to find the best fit for your needs, it’s important to find out about the specific background of the consultancy you’re considering. Ask to see portfolios, CVs, and additional vetted experience indicators that would help you determine whether or not your needs will be fully met.

Check Reviews and References

These days it’s easier than ever before to do your homework, and before you sign on the dotted line, it’s important to know who you’re working with. Look for online reviews, chat with those in the community around you that have used their services, and never be afraid to ask questions that give you the information you need. Core questions to ask include:

  • What are your credentials (individually and as a firm)?
  • What services does your firm offer?
  • When has the HR consultant worked on a similar project?
  • What are your pricing/billing options?

Hold a High Standard

It’s important to remember that when you’re hiring an external firm, you’re hiring them for their expertise. Demand the level of professionalism and service you deserve, and be prepared to give the same level of respect in return. You can determine these factors by asking for a plan of action or pre-emptive recommendations that you may pursue in partnership, and see how both sides respond to the evolving dialogue.

Don’t be Afraid to Reevaluate

Sometimes, even the “right” partnerships can evolve as your company or organization continues to grow. Don’t be scared to have an honest conversation with your HR firm about any services that you may feel are lacking, or to expand their role in your business as your needs change. Transparency and open communication are the best way for you to get the results you deserve, and the right firm will always be there to listen!
