Sometimes software alone is not enough.

That is why we created our advisory services offerings; as a complement to the leading software we provide at HR Acuity


Employee Relations Advisory Program

This unique program, the result of extensive research and ongoing client demand, was designed to improve overall organizational effectiveness when dealing with employee relations issues. Clients are appointed an Employee Relations Expert Advisor who will take responsibility for monitoring cases, conducting capability assessments and facilitating individual skills-based training to ensure the most appropriate outcomes and complete record-keeping.

Neutral Investigations

HOW an investigation is conducted can be the difference between a summary judgment for your company or a huge damage award to an employee. Sometimes, employee investigations are best handled by a neutral third-party. HR Acuity conducts all workplace investigations using the same 3 Step investigation methodology integrated into HR Acuity On-Demand.
