We could tell you we’re the leading human capital consulting firm in Greater Washington. We could tell you we have unparalleled knowledge of the market, a deep bench of certified, subject matter experts who are trusted Helios HR employees (not 1099s), and a wide range of flexible, on-demand services. We could tell you we become an integrated part of your business and culture while leveraging the expertise of our team. And while all of these are true, what really sets us apart is who we are.
We hire and retain people with heart. People who don’t mind rolling up their sleeves or having difficult conversations because they genuinely want to make a positive impact. People who want to constantly grow, learn, and develop while lifting others up. Demonstrating care is in our DNA and starts with our founder and CEO, Kathy Albarado, who gets excited about growth because it means we can help more people. We volunteer, serve on boards, teach HR professionals, coach leaders, and we have fun!
The more you share, the more informed our proposed solution will be. We start most conversations by asking you to tell us about your business such as your industry, headcount, history, culture, current infrastructure, etc. We ask for transparent communication about the challenge(s) that led you to reach out to Helios, and what you’re seeking in a HR consulting, outsourcing or recruiting partner. Throughout our dialogue, we will ask clarifying questions to help us determine if we could be the right partner for you to get to your desired goals and how we would propose the engagement.
How long has Helios HR been in business?
What type of clients do we work with?
After gaining an understanding of your business needs, culture, and the timeframe, we will collaborate on how we could best approach the engagement for success. This will be evaluated based on our past performance, team expertise, and availability. From there, we will propose a plan of action on how we would approach the solution for you to review and provide feedback on before establishing the formal contract.
The challenge(s) we need to overcome feel extensive and more than we may be prepared to commit to upfront. How can Helios help us incrementally?
How do we identify the consultants who will support our engagement? Do you send me several resumes to review?
Once we are aligned in the approach forward, the next step is to finalize a formal agreement. In many cases, we will recap our understanding of your challenge and our proposed solution to ensure we’ve captured the intent of the partnership accurately before moving to a formal agreement process. Once an agreement is signed the engagement launch meeting is scheduled.
How long does it take to get an agreement in place?
How quickly can we get started?
If we like the consultant we are partnered with, can we hire them?
From the moment we first connect, you can expect regular communication to ensure we remain aligned. Whether during the contract review, the engagement launch or at any point along the way, we ask that you openly share opportunities, challenges, and feedback with us. With this transparency, we can provide optimal recommendations, guidance, and support for you and your business. Earning your trust is a large part of being a reliable partner to help you move your business initiatives forward.
How do we stay informed throughout the engagement?
What if we get started and we decide it’s not the right approach for us?
