HR Consulting

Interested in outsourcing your Human Resources duties?

While many businesses don’t need a full time, in-house HR specialist, there are definitely times when a human resource practitioner’s services are required. When that time comes, call on Stern Cohen.

Our HR consulting services are an effective and economical solution without the cost or burden of a long term commitment. You don’t even need to be a Stern Cohen client to engage our Human Resources expertise.

Looking to hire? We can take care of the hiring process. We can draft a job posting, conduct the search, interview selected candidates, and provide you with a short list of 2 to 3 great candidates. In addition, you’ll save money because our fees are limited to the time required to perform our service. Comparably, a recruiter, headhunter or employment agency typically adds a 20% commission based on the new employee’s salary.

As Chartered Professional Accountants, we specialize in hiring effective accounting and bookkeeping staff. After a hire is made, we can also provide onboarding and training services for your new internal finance staff to set expectations and smooth the way forward.

Here is a list of the Human Resource advisory services we can provide:

  • Recruiting and retention
  • Compensation planning
  • Employment contracts
