HR Consulting definition
Specialist advice and services provided by a third-party to help businesses maximise the efficiency of their HR operations and implement appropriate new policies and procedures in the best way possible. They are often valued by companies for their ability to bring an outsider’s objective view.
HR consultancies are often brought in to address a particular problem or deficit and are tasked with assessment, auditing, proposal and implementation of a policy designed to address the deficit and drive organisational change.
The industry is dominated by major multinational companies although there are also small and medium-sized businesses in operation.
