highbridge associates has developed a series of
consultative support services that work to provide a menu of
programs to enhance the human capital element of any organization.
Highbridge consultants are trained and experienced
in a variety of testing and assessment applications and
methodologies that can be applied in a variety of situations. These
programs might include testing and assessment to establish a
benchmark against certain attributes and skills, analyzing certain
functional areas to evaluate existing performance or establish a
standard for new hires.
Additionally, clients call upon us to conduct partial or
comprehensive reviews of their human resource and recruiting
functions, requesting that we make recommendations supporting
continuous improvement or realignment of the function.
Highbridge consultants work to support executive
search and other programs where clients are concerned about the
ability of new hires to "hit the ground running" shortly
after they have joined the organization. In order to assure the
relative success of a new employee, certain support counseling may
be provided to assist the new hire and his or her staff gain
alignment with priorities, goals and objectives, while creating an
atmosphere that enhances a team orientation. Programs in this area
also include assistance to organizations concerned about
losing valuable human capital after an acquisition or merger, in
the post-integration process.
Highbridge consultants have consistently worked in
partnership with organizations facing challenges with executives who
are no longer aligned with organizational goals or have the
potential to disrupt the balance and team orientation of the peer
group. In certain situations, clients seek out our consultants to
have high potential executives gain additional management or
team-building skills, as part of an overall program for their
development track inside the organization.
