KBRS provides organizations with strategic human resource leadership and advice through short term, longer term or “on-call” support.

We can provide you with strategic human resource leadership and advice in the following areas:

HR Planning & Priorities

In the face of disruptive change, organizations cannot afford to waste time or resources. Creating the most efficient and effective path forward requires a clear understanding of your goals and work force needs.

Our Consultants evaluate potential approaches and develop workforce plans that take into consideration business continuity and productivity, short-term and long-term goals, and employee engagement. Through a strategic approach to organizational design, we can help ensure you have the right people, in the right place, at the right time.

  • Creation of comprehensive employee policies and handbooks

Succession Planning

Who will lead your organization next? The ramifications of this question are too great to be left to chance. Yet, all too often, organizations face a change in leadership without a clear plan to support succession. Leverage our strategic and proven approach to identify your successors, support their development and build a strong leadership culture.

Strategic Planning

Our strategic planning framework starts with the end in mind. We believe that knowing where you are going is fundamental for planning your route to get there. Focused on the end goal, your strategic plan should enable senior leaders to set priorities, make choices and decisions, focus energy and achieve results. It should enable team members to align their goals with those of the organization.
