Keeping the Human in Human Resources

We are the Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity experts.

For twenty years, our team of industry experts has been providing HR consulting services with innovative strategies and a partnership mentality. We have worked directly with some of the largest companies in the country across a broad range of industries, and we’re proud to grow our client list every year.

Our team is woman-owned, women-led, and partnership-oriented.

Working with us means you’re hiring senior-level talent that acts as an extension of your company. We aren’t out to nickel & dime clients, we’re out to educate organizations and help them solve complex HR problems. We’re proud to say we’re owned and led by women and are active in local, state, and regional councils for female-led businesses.

What current & past partners have to say:

The HR Consultant has been our go-to Affirmative Action Planning and Equal Employment Opportunity consultant for over 18 years. They are a true business partner, working with our Corporate and Field staffs to ensure compliance that works with our business processes. Terri and her staff are like a part of our team - always available and providing practical solutions. As our company has grown, they have been right along with us, assisting with merging new organizations into our compliance programs. I would not hesitate to recommend them.

I have been working with The HR Consultant for the past 20 years simply because we have never come across another partner that works with us the way they do, cares about our business the way they do, and helps us achieve positive results the way they do. Their knowledgeable staff provides us timely, practical, professional advice with a personal touch and most important, they keep us out of trouble. They are the one partner that I never hesitate to recommend to my peers.

The HR Consultant's straightforward, calm approach to even the most daunting challenges make them both a valuable resource and a joy to work with! As an HR leader, I seek outside resources who bring true expertise and provide specific guidance. Terri and her team do all that and much more. I give them my highest recommendation.

Worldwide Flight Services has utilized the services of The HR Consultant for over 12 years. They have helped us stay compliant and lean, by outsourcing some of our EEO and AAP compliance activities to them. Their approach is straightforward, on target and has helped us save hundreds of thousands of dollars. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your compliance needs.

The HR Consultant is a dynamic HR team to whom I have never hesitated referring our clients. Besides being THE subject-matter expert for affirmative action compliance issues, their ability to conduct professional and impartial employment-related investigations has been very valuable to our clients. I’ve worked with hundreds of HR pros, but The HR Consultant is one of my inner circle of go-to HR peers when I have a “what would you do?” challenge.

I recommend The HR Consultant for OFCCP audits and setting up compliant AAPs and more. They are very efficient, very knowledgeable, and in addition to being strong professionals, very honorable as evident through their significant and commendable work and success with Komen.
