HR Strategy And Consultancy

Surprisingly, whilst most organisations formulate strategic business plans, some do not fully develop effective strategies to identify how those objectives can best be met by their workforce.

The mglhr team has, in addition to extensive HR capability, extensive business knowledge. Our experience includes disciplines outside of HR, such as Finance and Technology. This allows us to work closely with business leaders to identify the strategic people implications of business plans, and to better understand the broader context of these.

Our solid business grounding also allows us to work consultatively with senior management teams, to identify and clarify the HR ‘hot spots’, and to develop tactical solutions to facilitate change, minimise risk and optimise opportunities through the effective management of people.

Assessment for Recruitment & Development

Mglhr consultants, accredited by the British Psychological Society, have an excellent track record of designing and running assessment centres to select candidates for recruitment, and to evaluate staff to identify their personal development priorities.

Whilst investment in such events can be significant, the return is invariably high since thorough and objective assessment helps to prevent costly recruitment decisions and it can inform optimal training spend, succession and organisational planning, and individual career choice.

The design of our assessment events is tailored to specific client requirements. Each will usually comprise of several activities, based on the competencies for relevant roles within the client organisation. Assessment activities typically include: role assimilation, interview, presentation, 360 degree assessment, problem solving and group exercises.

In addition, we have access to a range of occupational and psychometric instruments which can be administered by our consultants, under license, within the assessment process.

We are happy to design and manage the whole assessment process for you, or if you prefer, work alongside members of your own team. We also offer relevant observer training to client teams, prior to the event, to maintain consistent, high quality observation and evaluation. Take a look at our example case study in relation to our assessment for development services.

Other Services

At mglhr, we would certainly hesitate to call ourselves “HR Generalists” as over the years we have built significant expertise in a wide range of HR specialisms.

Please contact us if you would like any help in any of the following areas:

Performance Management – Not only do we offer training for those who have to manage and appraise others, but we also help organisations establish processes and systems to help their line managers and employees manage and review performance more effectively.

Role Analysis and Job Family Frameworks – we use simple but effective techniques to develop clearly articulated role profiles to help inform appropriate job grading structures (or organisational levels) and job family frameworks. Articulating individual roles, levels and job groupings in a consistent format can lead to better organisational design, improved decision making about remuneration, optimised training and development, and more informed resource planning.

HR Systems and Metrics – Our worldwide research on HR systems and our guidance about evaluating these systems may give you a significant head start if you are looking to implement or replace a core HR system.  Similarly we have considerable experience of HR data consolidation and analysis, through helping a number of organisations improve their HR data and better understand their workforce demographics.

Competency Development – we develop competency frameworks to help organisations articulate and evaluate the behaviours which they see as critical to their success.

360 Degree Feedback – we design and run 360 degree assessment and feedback programmes for a number of clients, to help them identify and develop their internal talent.

Whilst other 360 degree providers offer standard tools and ‘expert’ systems that focus predominantly on the quantitative output of such exercises, we feel that mglhr’s more flexible and bespoke approach leads to output which includes both quantitative and qualitative analyses to better inform individuals and organisations about their development needs.

HR Policies and Procedures – we provide advice and guidance on the practical application of best practice and employment law.

Our services in this respect predominantly focus on the UK environment and range from conducting HR Health Checks (auditing existing people related Policies and Procedures to ensure they are compliant with current legislation) to developing HR related Policies, Procedures, and Employee Handbook content.

We are happy to work on a single consultant basis or in any team combination that you choose, dependent upon the skills you require. In addition to our core team, we can also deploy additional close associates to work with us should the need of the project or initiative demand more resources.

Our clients tell us they value this flexibility and the continuity of the service we provide.
