Hiring Tools (and more!) for HR Consultants

Posted by Erin Borgerson on March 19, 2013

We've been working alongside HR consultants for quite some time now. If there's one thing we've learned from the collaboration, it's that consultants wear many hats. From advising to marketing to hiring and invoicing, it's a good thing someone narrowed down the job title to "consultant," otherwise that would be one busy business card.

Anyhow, the HR consultants we work with have years of experience. But despite everything they've learned over the years, adding a few extra hours to the day just isn't one of them. Forget an 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. schedule, it's more of a 24/7 type of position.

We have to give them props though. No matter how demanding clients get or how the days seem to melt away, HR consultants never complain. And they rarely ask for help.

But outside help can be a huge help to improving evens and quality. Just think of Tim Taylor, he couldn't have done it by himself. 

So make like you're on Home Improvement and start gathering tools for your toolkit. Whether it's something to help you stay organized, or a tool to help with your invoicing needs, a toolkit is a great resource. 

The best part of having an HR toolkit, you can still do things exactly the way you please. The tools are a merely a support system. They can save you time, and even money, all while you continue helping your clients the way you always have.

So, what do you say? Give an HR toolkit a try! After all, it's not like we're asking you to wear a tool belt.
