Training & Development

Other HR Outsourcing firms will provide you with a long list of “training sessions”, most likely purchased through an out-of-the-box third party subscription model. At HighRoad, we start by providing three sessions that contain information essential for every organization, but curated and customized for your company, your industry and your culture. These are not “check the box” sessions (although they will check a box). They are informational, interactive, and fun.

Performance Management

You have dreams and ideas, big ones. But how well are your “people systems” lined up to achieve them? If you have a strategic plan, have you clearly identified “whose job it is to do what” in order to get there? Do you have a system to track, measure, evaluate, and motivate performance? Are your team leaders equipped with the tools, systems and training to support that system? Especially as organizations grow, often the answer is no. We can help you implement a performance management system that is right for you.

Your CHRO Services
(limited, exclusive engagement)

Are you looking to take your HR operation to the next level? To shift from operational HR to strategic HR? To make sure that you have a people strategy that is aligned with your business strategy? Are you hiring your first HR person, or a new Director and want to make sure the “table is set” for him/her to be successful? Or, do you have a specific, specialized question – like “do my variable compensation plans drive the type of performance we need?”, or “does our compensation structure need a total overhaul?” Then you need a Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO). These complex matters can only be addressed by an expert. If you have a one-time project in mind, Michelle Kommer, North Dakota’s former Labor and Commerce Commissioner, HR Expert and employment attorney is taking a limited number of these specialized engagements to assist your organization in elevating its performance, to help companies go to the next level.
