SHRM Consultancy

SHRM stands for Strategic Human Resource Management. We prefer to call it the People Business.

The reality of any business is that: People implement strategies, people envision the future, people get engaged and excited about their organisation, people lead others, people sabotage the company’s efforts, people require re-skilling, people follow processes, people connect with customers, people generate business results…

However, not all SMEs or family businesses can afford to recruit a first-rate HR executive and pay competitive market rates to manage your people. This is where FENCI comes into play. For a small fee, which ends up being much less than employing a professional and experienced HR manager full-time, you get SHRM consultancy on how best to manage your single most important resources: your people.

In practice this can mean, for instance: the crafting of a human resource plan, performance evaluation, training & development of people, acting as a conduit between top management and lower management, promotion of people to new roles, redundancies, employee surveys, employee coaching, management of human capital and a lot more.

We see our selves as Business People in the People Business.

    The days of detailed and elaborate Strategic Planning are over. In fact, some would argue that Strategy and Planning are a misnomer anyway. 

  • Digital Addiction

    People today, apparently, suffer from: FOMO (fear of missing out), FOBO (fear of being offline) and nomo-phobia (fear of being out of mobile contact). 

  • Career Setbacks

    In today’s day and age, it is becoming increasing ‘normal’ for all managers, even the high fliers, to suffer a career setback. Only the very lucky or the extremely well connected escape this harsh ... 

  • Delegate or Relegate

    It literally is impossible, when in a senior management position, to do everything yourself. You either delegate the task or you effectively relegate it. 

  • Business Bias

    Decisions in business are inevitably loaded with bias. By ‘business bias’ I mean that managers tend to be prejudiced in favour or against one thing usually in a way considered to be unfair or...
