WISE HR Strategies provides vast operational and strategic as well as legal HR expertise. We provide a total outsourcing answer to your internal HR needs. We generally charge by the hour for our consulting and advisory services or on a monthly retainer basis, depending on the project. However, certain projects may be quoted at a fixed price. We often recommend to new clients that they consider this per-project option during an evaluation phase. Clients also have real time access to support when they need immediate assistance.

Knowing your organization is key. WISE HR Strategies will work on or off our client’s premises, depending on the needs and projects. It is, however, important for us to understand the culture and the needs of the senior management team of our clients and therefore, we recommend that our consultant meets with your team personally to obtain an understanding of your organization, its culture and the goals, objectives, and performance expectations your organization has for its people prior to carrying out any project.
