When & Why should you hire an HR Consultant?

If you are looking for a place to start with organizing your company’s human resources, hiring an HR consultant is the correct way to go. However, if you are concerned about legal action against your company, then start with an employment attorney.

Employment law knowledge is an important part of running a business, but not one that business owners and entrepreneurs like to dig into with zest or have the time to keep up with. When employment laws and federal/state regulations are not handled appropriately, the problems that arise will  be time consuming and potentially cost a lot of money. Just when you think you might have a handle, the regulations and laws change and are constantly changing.

Who can you talk to when you have HR questions and you don't have your own in-house HR experts? Hiring an HR Consultant is a great way to be pro-active and help answer your questions.   

What does an HR Consultant do?

HR consultants have expertise to help you proactively set up and run your business human resources that includes workforce optimization, maintaining compliance, risk issues, and HR practices such as payroll or staffing. Normally, if the business has questions about policy, concerns about employee relations, onboarding, employment termination, benefits, compliance, etc. or even if you need an HR project done to supplement your in-house HR team - - hiring an HR consultant is a great idea!

An ideal HR consultant is college educated in human resources, certified in HR, extensive private industry HR leadership experience, should be versed in business federal and state regulations, and able to provide you with actions to reduce your risk internally. In other words, HR Consultants handle the process.  HR Consultants also know when it is time to refer you to legal expertise.
