In the fast paced world of business where changes are imminent and required, Cameron Consulting understands Business and HR, and can identify where and how they need to support each other.
Specifically in the HR discipline, the landscape is moving rapidly and significantly.
Although Cameron Consulting is able to support business through the standard HR related activities, processes and transactions, we also have the unique ability to see how to perform these effectively, efficiently and with the highest benefit to business.
A business needs to create meaningful HR strategies in order to transform itself. It needs to change processes, purchase technology, scale up or down and support legislation. This is often time consuming and extremely expensive. Often the Leadership does not fully understand, or has not thought through all the impacts of what is about to happen to their business. There are times where Leadership is unaware of the full R.O.I. (Return on Investment) of what they are purchasing or changing.
Very often companies only have themselves to compare to, and have not seen how HR operates in other areas and therefore have no knowledge of good practise or how differently they could work, making H.R. more efficient.
Cameron Consulting collaborates with the business and especially the Leadership or HR teams at any stage of the transformation. We are able to see how the technology supports the business strategy, and highlight opportunities or gaps / growth areas. The most beneficial stage however is right upfront in the planning stage.
We understand the need for effective and efficient teams and we are able to perform a wide range of support initiatives to a business. Whether this is gathering business requirements for a new way of working or unpacking and providing direction and advice on current business processes We have the experience to highlight the opportunities or gaps / growth areas.
Often a business will take on a new project, not having the HR capacities to manage and engage with the current teams on the changes and impact. Cameron Consulting has the ability to work very closely with the Project Manager and Change or Communications Manager and align with business and support the teams. This ensures an implementation which is far more impactful and easier for the business to transition.
