Compensation & Benefits

Maintaining competitive compensation and benefits can be challenging. Our team will work with you to review your total compensation package, conduct a market analysis, and provide you with recommendations specific to your organization. We will assist you with providing equitable compensation and benefits, supporting employee retention, and giving you a competitive edge while recruiting.

Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is not so much about employee satisfaction as it is about whether they feel passionate about their job, are committed to the company, and are motivated to put effort into their daily work. Employee engagement is critical in the retention of talent. Employees who feel disengaged are much more likely to leave their jobs.

We are an authorized partner of Abaris Consulting, who can assist in the delivery of tangible engagement solutions that improve employer branding and drive performance.

Optimizer is an Employee Engagement Solution used to analyze and report on employees’ level of engagement at the individual, team, department, office, and organizational levels. Optimizer can help make recommendations on strategies for improvement with employee engagement. Better engagement is correlated with improvements in a variety of metrics, including profit, revenue, customer service, and productivity, as well as reductions in turnover and absenteeism.

Employee Relations

Our professional team can support your organization through formal complaint procedure implementation and progressive discipline discussions to minimize or eliminate employee relations issues.

Executive Coaching

Engaging with an Executive Coach allows people to reach their full potential related to their leadership, development, and self-awareness skills. Coaching discussions can focus on an individual’s personal or professional goals, and reflect the principles of the International Coach Federation (ICF).

Executive Search & Talent Acquisition

Your employees are your greatest asset and it is essential that you attract top talent. This is especially true when placing a candidate into a leadership role on your team; someone who will be responsible for advancing the goals of your organization. Our team of HR professionals will work with you throughout the full-cycle recruitment process. Through the initial stages involved in identifying qualified candidates (utilizing tools like *PXT Select™), through to finalization of the Employment Agreement, our focused attention will be on the end result in mind; placing the ideal candidate within your organization.

*We are a PXT Select™ Authorized Partner

As an authorized partner, we have the ability to provide assessments to candidates who are going through the recruitment process or who are looking for coaching and/or leadership development opportunities.

Legislated Training & Compliance

As employment legislation continually evolves, it can be difficult to stay abreast of mandated legislative changes. Our team can assist you in determining which regulations apply to your workplace, as well as providing you with affordable and customized solutions to ensure compliance.

Organizational Development

We understand the many changes a business may face throughout its lifetime. We offer organizational planning and development services to ensure the smoothest transition through these changes. Our services include succession planning, and organizational chart creation, review and analysis, and termination pay obligations as they relate to the transition, sale, or closure of a business.

Performance Management

Today’s managers are expected to guide, coach, and provide ongoing balanced constructive feedback, as well as inspire performance. Our team can provide you with the tools and training to implement a straightforward and effective performance management program that includes collaborative goal setting, ongoing feedback sessions, and employee self-reviews.

Policy Development

When employees understand what is expected of them, they are more engaged and able to excel in their position. Our team can assist you with ensuring that key information is effectively communicated and understood by your employees by compiling your policies, best practices, and procedures into a clear and concise Employee Manual that reflects your company’s unique voice.

Workplace Investigations

The Certified Investigation team can conduct independent, objective investigations into breaches of the Occupational Health and Safety Act and the Ontario Human Rights Code as they relate to issues of Workplace Violence and Harassment and Sexual Harassment.  Our team will act as independent, neutral Certified Investigators and provide organizations with a detailed and defensible report outlining findings of fact. Additionally, upon request, our team can work with you to determine the next steps and solutions for your organization following the investigation. All investigations are conducted in an objective manner and provide procedural fairness to all parties. 

Considerations for timing and logistics will be made for unique circumstances such as virtual investigations.
