Human Resources Consulting Group

Your first contact for assistance with any human resources issue is your college or administrative unit's HR professional. The HR Professionals know Human Resources policies and procedures particular to your unit.

If your unit's HR Professional advises you to contact an HR Consultant, please contact the HR Consultant assigned to your unit, as indicated below.

Role of the HR Consultant

Human resources consultants assist HR personnel, as well as managers and employees, with employment issues across each University campus. Their work includes:

  • Interpreting and applying employment-related policies, rules, and contracts.
  • Assisting with performance management issues, ranging from hiring, rewards, and recognition, to discipline and termination.
  • Resolving conflicts and managing difficult workplace situations, including facilitating union grievances.
  • Providing customized training about employment subjects.
  • Leading units through organizational development

Consultants in the Academic Health Center Human Resources Office are available to assist HR personnel, managers, and employees in the AHC colleges, centers, and units.
