The new year is here! Is your team ready to tackle the realities of managing a business and navigating employee needs in 2023?

As most business owners know all too well, the past few years have put a unique strain on the workforce and presented organizations with unprecedented hiring and retention challenges. As we navigate a rapidly evolving workplace culture, having trusted human resources support is more essential than ever. At Pivot HR, we’re proud to partner with businesses throughout BC and the rest of Canada to ensure you have the support you need. As an experienced HR Consultancy, we know that facing HR questions alone can be overwhelming and lead to costly mistakes and even avoidable lawsuits. Whether you’re a small-medium business that’s actively growing or a not-for-profit that needs guidance for day-to-day matters, we’ve got you covered for all things HR!

Below, we’ll take a closer look at the benefits of partnering with an external HR consultancy like Pivot. Read on to learn more!

Why Do I Need An HR Consultant?

It is (unfortunately) not uncommon for businesses to put off integrating HR professionals into their day-to-day operations. It’s easy to get caught up in other fine details and to think that, just because you have a smaller team, you don’t need HR support. In reality, however, there are many reasons businesses should partner with an HR consultancy early on. If you’re rapidly expanding, constantly dealing with external consultants, or facing difficulty within your workplace culture, working with an HR team like Pivot can make it far easier to come to a trusted resolution and lay a solid foundation for success. Pivot HR is pleased to offer support with the following:

Regulatory Compliance

British Columbia (as well as the rest of Canada) constantly reevaluates and adjusts workplace regulations, so ensuring you’re on the right side of the law is essential for growth and avoiding issues in the long term. Regulatory compliance extends to work practices, as well as your hiring and review process, disciplinary action (and/or terms of severance when necessary), leaves of absence, privacy and information protection, and much more. Dedicated, experienced assistance with such matters is vital for businesses or organizations of any size and can help provide clarity quickly instead of leaving things to chance.

Streamlining Operations

Did you know that strong HR practices are one of the best ways to streamline your business and avoid many common stressors? While we often think of getting HR involved when things take a turn for the worse, taking a proactive approach and integrating HR policies early on alleviates confusion and gives everyone, including leadership, a clear path forward. With detailed practices, standards, and processes in place, your team will know what’s expected of them, and leadership will know how to proceed should a difficult situation arise in the workplace. Putting your best foot forward HR-wise results in a healthy office culture that puts everyone’s wellness and growth first, allowing your business or organization to reap the benefits!

Hiring and Retention

Today’s workforce moves fast, and with high levels of competition amongst job postings, knowing how to sort through candidates is essential to finding the right fit for your team. Onboarding and training (more on that in a moment!) are two of the biggest expenses companies face, but if implemented properly, they are also two of the biggest assets for growing your company. Partnering with an HR consultancy like Pivot makes the hiring process far easier and helps to greatly reduce the time you spend screening prospective employees for each position. At Pivot, we partner with you to help you navigate the hiring process by:

  • Writing and reviewing job postings
  • Ad placements
  • Resume Review
  • Conducting interviews and reference checks
  • Extending job offers
  • Compensation reviews and internal promotion structures for current employees, and more.

Having a vetted HR partner on your side makes onboarding straightforward and helps both parties start strong, building long-lasting professional relationships that have everyone’s best interests in mind.

Internal Training and Development

Growing your team is about far more than adding new bodies to your workforce each year. Consistently honing and developing your internal talent allows key performers to rise to the top and to lead by example amongst their peers. Pivot proudly partners with businesses and organizations to develop customized executive and leadership training and coaching programs designed to help your leaders grow and to help management track employees to be equipped with the skills they need to assume additional authority in the future.

Advice You Can Trust

Let’s face it: running a business or organization is far from easy, and owners facing 2023’s market have no shortage of challenges to overcome to keep their team in the best shape possible. From navigating workplace conflict to handling serious allegations like sexual harassment and/or abuse, having a trusted advisor readily on hand is more than just peace of mind; it’s valuable insurance for your company.

When it comes to answering HR questions, Pivot believes that you shouldn’t be left guessing in the dark. We’re here to make sure you have the information you need when you need it most!
