Utilizing S &K Consulting for Varselor’s initial HR needs was a game-changer. As a new startup, I needed support in terms of hiring new employees and the processes related to bringing in new employees’ to the team. S&K Consulting helped me through every step of the way with their expert advice and helped me navigate the talent market and helped me bring in key, irreplaceable talent to push my business forward.

S&K Consulting were the right people for a hard job. I am an owner of a SME and as I began to grow, recruiting new people – I started to run into a lot of HR problems that I had no idea how to solve. I had no policies in place and my idea of the right way to discipline or exit an employee were based on google. I knew that I needed to really dig deep into what my company stood for, how we wanted to operate and a clear way to communicate that to my team. Elrona, in specific, spent a lot of hours with me over the span of two months as we developed all the tools I needed to have a clear and concise vision, and message to my team. As well as helping me understand my employee’s rights, and for them to have a good working environment. I highly recommend these well versed professionals when it comes to all your HR concerns.

It's been a pleasure working with the S & K Team throughout the last year. Their advice has been invaluable and the team are incredibly helpful. They helped us build HR Processes, navigate challenging situations and been a brilliant solution for us as we have been expanding, instead of taking on a full time HR manager internally. Highly recommend the team. Thank you all!

Being a relatively small team with approximately 50 employees in our regional office, we wanted to improve the employee experience but didn’t know where to begin without an established local human resources department. We brought on S&K Consulting to support us with this as well as improving the onboarding experience, enabling a seamless process for both employees and the company. Thank you!
