“Do You Know Where You’re Going To?”

This isn’t just a song by Diana Ross – it’s a critical question!! You’re in business to focus on the things you love. You developed a business plan – when was the last time you checked in on that? Sometimes as business owners we can get so busy providing our products and services that we can forget to check on “where we’re going”.

As you are getting ready to start a new year – ask yourself a few questions:

  • What were my main goals last year?

  • How well did we do towards those goals?

  • What strategies worked well?

  • Which strategies were not effective?

  • Get input/feedback from your employees – how did they see things working or not working? They will have a unique perspective that is critically valuable!

Now for this coming year…review your business plan, last year's results and develop your strategic goals and strategies for the new year. These are not to be confused with “New Year’s Resolutions” which are typically broken by week two! Your new year's strategic goals and strategies are the steps you are going to take to ensure you are on track to hit the milestones you’ve set for your business!

Discuss these with your employees – get their input and truly listen to what they have to provide, ask clarifying questions. It is critically important for your employees to know they are a vital part of your business. If you truly listen to their input, then you can make an informed decision and they will feel their opinions were heard, helping them be more engaged. Remember, these are the people who are going to help your business succeed…or not!

Here's more information about how to set strategic goals and strategies.

Eileen has a fantastic model to supply small businesses with Human Resource needs. She'll help with policies, compliance, hiring, firing - all in the scope of what your business needs - without having a full-time HR employee. Get what you want, when you want it. I find myself seeking out her no-nonsense approach to solving business problems. Highly recommend Eileen as a business partner and HR professional.

Fastenair Corporation

We are a 58 year old family owned business with an established culture that had never had a company policy handbook. Eileen brought us a comprehensive product that we could edit to fit our culture and implied policies while retaining all of the state and federal guidelines to keep us compliant. It was exactly what we were looking for and it fit well within our budget. Eileen took the time to learn about us. She researched our industry. She educated us about employment law and helped us iron out the kinks in areas where we had options. We are very happy with the final product. I look forward to working with Eileen in the future and would highly recommend HRx Consulting to any small business.

HR is a skill-set in which we know we need guidance. Eileen is a wonderful person to provide that navigational expertise. She is patient and thorough, and is willing to explain it until it's understood. She helped us with some stumbling blocks, and has made us a better employer for it.

Wichita Habitat for Humanity couldn't have found a better person to guide the development of our strategic plan, performance management program and annual compensation analysis. Eileen provides clear direction, tough love and grace, effective procedures and templates, quick responses, well-rounded knowledge and all with a generous, affable personality. Highly recommend HRx Consulting!

Gina Stuchlik
I met Eileen at a Business Networking Group, I had some of my own questions regarding my business and how to approach and handle certain issues. I felt it appropriate to get an outside source as well. She had wonderful ideas on how to continue. She had great advice and really took the time to appropriately assess and guide me through!! She is an amazing person! I would highly recommend her!

As a small non-profit, we must rely on consulting support to work through Human Resource issues. HRx Consulting truly understands the non-profit environment and has delivered wise counsel, mediation services and technical assistance, all at a reasonable cost. Eileen McNichol brings an upbeat and encouraging attitude, and an incredible ability to communicate clearly and directly on tough topics. With her help, we've implemented a strategic planning framework that aligns individual performance goals to our strategic priorities. We had floundered in making progress in this arena. Her coaching made all the difference. I recommend HRx without hesitation. Ann Fox, Executive Director, Wichita Habitat for Humanity

I recommend Eileen for her expertise, patience and total understanding of the HR function. I have referred clients to HRx Consulting and have been extremely pleased with the results. She knows the HR law and she puts a human element to the sometimes technical side of HR (like the handbook, job descriptions, hiring etc....) Give her a call if you need to hire, or you want, a policy or procedure manual.
