Helping businesses gain competitive advantage through their people and HR processes.  We focus on assisting organizations to attract, select, develop and retain talent through establishing the right HR systems and processes.


We blend advisory, solution delivery and evaluation services into a single consulting process.  We view our work through the lens of consulting and organizational psychology. Our expertise resides primarily in the talent management and organizational effectiveness HR domains. We focus on client issues that touch all phases of the employee life cycle—recruiting, assimilating, developing, managing, retaining and planning.


We believe in providing our clients with practical solutions that will work within the business constraints of time, budget, and culture.  We, along with our clients, make decisions whether to build or buy existing solutions, which may exist outside of our firm.  Our focus is to provide the right solution, which will have long-lasting impact on the business.
