J N Gruber Group brings a breadth of consulting knowledge and practical expertise in all areas of human resources and across many industries. While we specialize in working with companies in the midst of major transition that impact the human resources, we often assist small and medium-sized organizations that need to assess their Human Resources needs as they evolve or grow. As needed, we collaborate with colleagues whose expertise in certain areas complement our own and offer depth of knowledge for clients with particular needs.
If you’re the owner or on the leadership team of a small to mid-size, growing company who needs consultative help in the human resource elements of your business, or don’t already have an HR department, we can fill the gap, handle your overflow or consult to help you get back on track.
We believe in partnering with the leadership of the company with integrity and with straightforward counsel. The success of our relationships is founded in the consultant and the leadership team achieving sustainable, measurable performance improvements over time. Improving talent, enhancing HR processes and the organizational structure often means changing the way things are done inside the organization and how the company is led and managed. Transforming the company and instituting more effective plans and strategies can achieve sustained long-term improvement.
