delivering client work for HRCA have an impressive corporate history, are
graduates and are corporate members of the CIPD. Additionally,
consultants will have qualifications specific to their specialism, e.g..
British Psychological Society level 1 and 2 accreditation.
Yes of course we believe
in Quality and Customer Focus. But so does everyone else. Out of interest,
several of the HRCA team were at the centre of the very first UK corporate
applications of Quality within Xerox in the 1980's. You will find these
case studies in current books on Quality.
Our aims are that:
Clients should be
really pleased with what we deliver, because we will listen and reflect
their needs and culture in our work. No packaged solutions.
We respect the
commercial objectives of our private sector clients, and want to save
them cost or increase their revenues.
We intend enjoying
our work, and hopefully sharing the enthusiasm.
With very few
exceptions such as outplacement, the role of an HR consultant is to
focus on delivery through client managers. We are there to investigate
and advise, not try and take over.
We think that
technology should make life easier. Wherever appropriate we will
integrate our work and processes with the software standards of the
client, make maximum beneficial use of data communications, and use
application software skills to achieve excellent presentation and robust
but sophisticated processing tools.
ourselves effectively, we know we can be a profitable business and yet
be charging fees that discount "big names" by 25-50%. We are confident
this is not a myth - all consultants in the team have either worked at
these sorts of rates for other organisations, or in executive roles have
paid such invoices.
standards underpin many of these intentions. Our consultants are as a
minimum members of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development,
and bound by both general rules and specific Codes of Conduct. We do not
expect to make errors, but clients need to know that all consultants are
covered by comprehensive professional indemnity insurance.
More important than any
of these intentions - which we do deliver - is our belief that:
- Wherever possible,
solutions to a client's need should be integrated with, or replace,
existing processes. Our clients do not need yet another stand-alone
initiative, however professional. They want coherent, integrated,
value-added personnel management solutions.
