Who We Are

PSHR is an Organization Effectiveness/HR consulting firm that works with small to medium-sized client organizations. Based in Ohio, we provide solutions to today’s rapidly changing work environment for those clients that understand the importance of their human capital assets and wish to maximize their efficiency and effectiveness for the organization’s benefit. Our total service offerings are based on years of executive level experience with organizational development and practical human resources issues. We believe that through effective strategic planning, the alignment of organizational initiatives and resources and appropriate outsourcing of professional services, every organization can compete successfully in today and tomorrow’s business world. 



Full Service Consulting Model 


PSHR develops a close, trusting relationship with the client’s leadership team by initially assessing the operating processes, policies and procedures, employment practices/legal compliance and the work culture. The assessment results in the identification of performance gaps; specifically, where the organization is today compared to where it needs to be in-order to compete successfully in the future. Once identified, PSHR works closely with the leadership team to plan the implementation of strategy, tactics and operational solutions. We assist in the development of organizational metrics necessary to monitor progress and the attainment of required results. If organizational issues fall outside the capabilities of PSHR, we recommend consulting services through our strategic business alliance network. We feel this Full Service Consulting Model separates PHSR from our competition and more importantly, better services our clients.
