HR Management


Human Resource Management Consultancy Services

At Adare Human Resource Management, our HR consulting services help leading Organisations across key sectors throughout Ireland manage the complex HR challenges they face. We provide a range of HR consulting services that are not only solution focused, but are proactive to ensure we consistently deliver upon the needs of your Organisation.

Conflict / Dispute Resolution and Investigations

Organisations are increasingly aware of the importance of conflict management processes and facilitating collaboration to resolve disputes, enhance productivity and personal satisfaction in their Employees. Our Conflict Management and Dispute Resolution services promote the resolution of workplace disputes at the lowest level possible using conflict resolution and collaborative processes. A Consultant will serve as an impartial third party to help managers and Employees express their workplace concerns, resolve and manage conflict, and learn more productive ways of communicating.

We specialise in and are a leading provider of independent workplace investigation services to Organisations that are dealing with allegations of inappropriate workplace behaviour including grievance, disciplinary, bullying and harassment. Our Consultants provide a range of investigation services, from dealing with informal complaints to significant and complex formal investigations. 

Our Services:

Mediation
Mediation is a problem-solving process used to resolve disputes and conflicts. It is an informal, yet structured process guided by our trained mediator who serves as an impartial third party. Our mediator assists the parties involved hold honest discussions, to feel safe in expressing emotions, and to work through problems in order to reach a resolution.

Facilitation
Similar to mediation, facilitation is a problem solving process guided by an impartial third party. The primary difference is that the facilitator is more likely to involve the parties in making decisions about the content, including the development of ground rules and the agenda. Facilitators do not contribute to the substance of the discussion nor do they have decision-making authority.

Industrial Relations (IR) Disputes
We offer a range of services to Organisations around preventing and resolving workplace disputes and disagreements involving individual workers, groups of workers, Organisations and their representatives. Our specialist IR Consultants represent Organisations on all aspects of industrial relations, from conciliation to negotiations with trade unions at industrial relations institutions.

Independent Investigations
We ensure our independent workplace investigations relating to grievance, discipline, bullying, harassment are fair, impartial, prompt and thorough and our independent workplace investigators are focused and sensitive throughout the investigation process. We work utilising the Organisations policies and procedures and are guided by the relevant Codes of Practice. We deliver our findings in a written report, which deals with evidentiary matters.

Organisational Development and Change

Effective people and performance management presents an ongoing challenge for Organisations, particularly in a continuously changing environment. The misalignment of your people management strategy and your business strategy can have a significant negative impact not just with your employees, but also on the success of any Organisational change initiatives.

We review existing systems and make recommendations for change based on our experience of best practice. We help Organisations develop and grow in line with their HR and business strategy and draw upon our expertise and experience across key sectors and Organisations. We offer a number of key services to achieve this.

Our Services:

Organisational Change

A significant number of Organisational change initiatives end in failure which can then lead to a negative spiralling effect of poor practices and reinforcing the perception of change in itself being negative. Organisational Development is a planned, holistic approach to improving Organisational effectiveness - one that aligns strategy, people and processes.

Leadership, management, morale and culture are all key areas where Organisations seek to introduce change and are all areas where our Consultants have successfully introduced change initiatives to meet the requirements of our clients. Our Consultants bring together and involve employees and key stakeholders when approaching any change initiative to ensure we have created a clear vision and secured buy-in to the change process.

HR Strategy

Through the development of a HR Strategy we identify a roadmap for the Organisation to build a competitive advantage by creating value through the Organisation’s employees. This of course is developed to address the Organisational challenges and achieve the Organisational Strategic objectives.

We design HR strategy to focus on the core fundamental areas of HR to ensure an effective and efficient internal human resource and people management framework that is aligned with the future direction of HR policy and practice within the Organisation.

HR Audits

A primary purpose of the HR Audit for Organisations is to conduct a more in depth analysis of the HR function to identify areas of strength and weakness and where improvements may be needed. Conducting an audit involves a review of current practices, policies, and procedures, and may include benchmarking against Organisations not just of similar size and industry, but also in relation to other industries and best innovative practices.

Our Consultants when conducting audits:

A. Focus on compliance and seek to establish the level of compliance with existing employment legislation.

&

B. Focus on key HR areas and structures that Organisations should have in place to assist them with the achievement of their plans and effective people management. This includes proactively identifying priority areas and proposed deliverables for a HR Strategic and Operational plan that can create a possible strategic advantage.

Employee Surveys

An employee survey is a valuable tool that can assist and lead to changes in both Organisational culture and improved Organisational performance. We partner with our clients to identify the right type and structure of employee survey, assist with the internal communications process to secure maximum participation right through to roll out of the survey and the follow up actions out of the survey.

Human Resource Management Excellence

Human Resource Management Excellence seeks to ensure that each aspect of HR from recruitment and induction through to performance and retention are meeting the short to longer-term people and Organisational needs.

Effective Human Resource Management can be a complex process as the needs of the Organisation as well as the theory are constantly evolving.

Performance and Talent Management

In well-managed Organisations, performance and talent management is one of the most powerful instruments that management has to mobilise the energy of every employee toward the achievement of strategic goals. However, an ineffective or poorly implemented system has the opposite effect and becomes a non-value paper based exercise.

At Adare Human Resource Management we have extensive experience in performance and talent management consulting and have assisted Organisations across sectors design and implement systems that optimise performance and develop talent. Our processes can be applied to Organisations that have no performance and talent management systems in place, or we can review existing systems and make recommendations for change based on our experience of best practice in system design and implementation.

Equality, Diversity and Dignity at Work
Adare Human Resource Management has been a member of the approved panel of consultants under the Grant Scheme to Develop and Implement Employment Equality Policies and Diversity Training since 2003, under the Equality Authority.

We provide management and employee training to Organisations in the areas of Dignity at Work, Managing Bullying, Harassment and Sexual Harassment in the workplace and Investigation Skills training for managers.
