For all, the ultimate goal of HR consulting is to leave the client with a solid and fully competent human resources department. The department will have specific guidelines and procedures that can adapt to any type of employees issue and all employees assigned to the department will have a clear understanding of their duties and responsibilities.

HR consulting is of benefit to businesses of every size and description. Upcoming companies may require guidance in establishing strategies and procedures that fulfill with applicable laws as they relate to hiring and firing recruits. Small companies may find that calling in a HR consultant to assist in taking a nascent program to a new level, such as developing an employee handbook, will create many benefits in terms of productivity. HR consulting may be of help to larger corporations in establishing grievance mediation processes or evaluating the current size of the human resources team and making suggestions on how to reorganize the department to best advantage.
