“Nothing surprises me. I work in HR.”
Interview with Christine Frazer, by EDCO
A Chat with the Resourceful Christine Frazer
Human Resources consulting. How interesting could that be? As it turns out, absolutely fascinating… Listen here:
Christine Frazer received her crash course in human resources from a very unlikely place. Prison. Working in prisons, as she puts it, was where she learned not to be surprised by anything…
Q: What is different working with you than other consultants?
A: I provide a holistic approach to human resources. I am best when I understand your entire organization, what you do, what’s important to you, what you do best, and where you want to improve. Not just as it relates to human resources, but your business as a whole. Human resources is a part of the business engine; it’s important to understand how everything works together to be an effective consultant.
Q: How do I know when I need to implement human resources practices?
A: If you’re hiring employees, it’s time to implement human resources practices. The moment employees enter your organization, you’re building culture and risk. You want to be the one to mold your culture in a way that defines your organization. You also want to be the one to identify and minimize risk quickly. The only way to do that is with good practices early in the process.
Q: What if I don’t know what I need?
A: Most employers starting out or quickly growing don’t know what they need. That’s why I wrote the book HR Step 1 and developed my web application. I talk to employers just like you every day and realized there were very few ways they could get help without either making a big mistake or paying a lot of money. Neither is a great option for a start-up or growing company. These tools are there to help you identify areas of potential risk and ways to minimize them. Don’t worry, they’re also very user-friendly and written for the non-HR person.
Q: What’s the best way to work together?
A: I offer several options to work together. One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to human resources consulting. We may decide a short-term membership option is best to achieve your goals based on an already established infrastructure that needs some fine-tuning. Maybe you’re starting from scratch and want to make sure you’ve covered all your bases, that may require a long-term contract. Perhaps you need a project completed you cant seem to get the time for. Or, maybe you want someone to call in case something comes up. Let’s talk about your situation and find the right fit for you and your organization.
