Human Resource Audit

An HR Audit provides your company with insight as to how your Human Resources behaviour is impacting your goals, objectives and bottom line. With an appreciation of your unique organization, we observe your employment policies and procedures. We build an understanding of your business strategy, purpose and intentions of the organization, we then interview key staff (different employees in different roles, different locations, with varied tenure and responsibilities). We also look at your HR Policy, recruitment, onboarding and training activities and any other documentation that is relevant to the employee relationship. Once complete we provide you with a summary report outlining our: Findings, Options and Recommendations as well as An Action Plan.

Businesses of all sizes strive to work with employees to either build engagement or to further engage them. Engaged employees are a triple win – the employee is happy, the business is happy and the business’s clients are happy.

Praxis HR Group has a designed our team building programs using a “Tell, Show, Do” workshop design, Praxis gives leadership and all team members the opportunity to learn the information, see the examples and practice the techniques.

Human Resource Advice and Solutions

We help organizations large, small or tiny who are experiencing a unique occurrence. Praxis HR Group aids your business in coping with anomalies or exploiting positives, depending on what the situation calls for. Our clients hire us to manage projects, deal with difficult situations or offer advice within Operations or Human Resources.

Compensation, Rewards, and Recognition Programs

Job benchmarking, wage grid evaluations and compensation analysis all provide a rational and consistent approach for determining the pay of employees within an organization and any organization who undertakes such a project is to be complimented for carrying out this project on behalf of its employees.

If you would like to create equity within your pay – both internal to other roles and external to market, then reach out to see how we can help! Internally we ensure employees are being paid fairly, relative to each other, as well as create a rational plan for your team members to increase their compensation over time as they move through certain milestones (experience, performance and/or education.)

External Equity is the term used to describe fair and competitive compensation with respect to the market value of a job. It is the average level at which your organization pays relative to the outside labour market. This is determined through market definitions (defining your relevant labour market), salary surveys, and your pay policy decision (where you wish to pay relative to the market).

We also conduct job analyses (a job analysis gives in detail the skills required to perform a job, the qualifications, physical and mental demands, education, experience, various responsibilities associated with the job in order to determine the job description and the required skills in an area of need within an organization.)

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) Assessments & Workshops

We embrace the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) philosophy as a proven and effective tool that can create the platform to understand differences, increase the effectiveness of communication and decrease the presence of stress is your workplace. The MBTI is excellent at allowing you to begin conversations that lead to greater understanding of ourselves and each other.

In theory, the MBTI assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions.  In practice, we can take the assessment and show your teams how to make sense of why they and others behave the way they do.  MBTI assessments and team building exercises are a fun, interactive way to develop comradery and enlighten groups on the dynamics of the team, where individuals fit in with the group and how to use those to the advantage of the team.

Whether your team is functioning well and you want to keep the good times going or whether you are experiences some challenges MBTI is an excellent option for growth and development. All Praxis Consultants have completed the MBTI Facilitator Education and are Certified in both Step I and Step II MBTI Assessments.

 

Don’t avoid situations you are unsure about, ask for guidance from certified Human Resource professionals. We’ll assess the situation, offer possible resolutions and outcomes then work with you to implement your chosen path. Email us at admin@praxisgroup.ca today!
