HDR provides information to business owners and executives that enable organizations to make better decisions regarding people issues. Through common sense Consulting and Best in Class employment tools, we help employers keep their businesses heading in the right direction.

The employers we work with understand the importance of efficiently selecting and retaining the right employees, while enhancing performance, and minimizing risk. Employees are the key to either success or failure for any organization. And they are getting more expensive every day. You and your team have hired great employees as well as difficult ones. What did you do differently? If current processes and hiring by “gut” are so effective, why do managers keep making mistakes? Why do we accept mediocrity?

Let HDR help you get the most out of your current staff and identify new candidates that can be “selected” multiple times throughout their progression with your organization. The new reality is that market share will be won in the competition for the best employees.


  • PXT Select™ - Why job fit matters

    The PXT SELECT™ is a UNIQUE SELECTION ASSESSMENT that fills the gap between the resume and the interview. Get a clearer picture of whether or not a candidate’s thinking style, behaviors, and interests will be a help or a hindrance in the position they are being considered for. Start the selection process on the right foot. You can Interview with confidence and ask questions tailored to each candidate.

    For current employees, identify ways to enhance performance and maximize an individual’s contribution to your organization. Match people with positions in which they’ll perform well and enjoy what they do. Reduce turnover and boost employee engagement, which results in happier employees! Utilize your payroll effectively.

  • Step One Survey II® - Because Skills and Experience are not enough.

    When it comes to hiring, the first responsibility is DO NO HARM! This means that you must focus on bringing in individuals that have the integrity and work ethic you expect from employees. The sad truth is, integrity and work ethic are hard to come by. And focusing just on skills and experience when hiring gets you no closer to someone that will look out for the company the way you look out for your employees.

    Our Step One Survey II® (SOSII) is a brief, pre-hire assessment that measures an individual’s basic work-related values. It is used primarily as a screening tool early in the candidate selection process. This assessment provides valid insight into an applicant’s work ethic, reliability, integrity, propensity for substance abuse, and attitudes toward theft —including property, data, and time.

    You can always teach a task. You can't teach honesty.

  • Pathway Planner™ - When it's time to part ways

    No matter how good your hiring process is, sometimes relationships just don't work out. There is no reason you shouldn't treat an employee leaving you with the same attention and respect as when (s)he is leaving the company.

    Career change statistics suggest that the average person will make a career change approximately 5-7 times during their working life. Sometimes that is voluntary, sometimes it is not. You can help employees identify new career using their natural tendencies. Pathway Planner™ is an in-depth planning and personal assessment they can use to assist them on their journey.

    With any termination there is much stress and anxiety. You can help alleviate some of this, and hopefully some risk, by using this assessment as part of a separation packet. This could be the difference between a terminated employee moving on and a claim generated by anger.

  • Common Sense HR Consultation

    HDR Premium is a robust program to assist you regardless of your HR Department’s expertise. Our consultants work with Management and Human Resources Staff to answer questions and guide them in making the best business decisions. Our support will minimize liabilities for clients and reduce risks of being fined. Therefore, profits will stay within your organization and out of State Agencies pockets.

    Our biggest attribute is that where our competitors are reactive and focused on compliance, we are constantly sending out information to assist you in focusing on the things that raise productivity and lower legal risks BEFORE there is a problem.

  • Sexual Harassment Training

    A recent study by the EEOC on the effectiveness of prevention efforts over the last 30 years was far from what they had hoped for. 'With legal liability long ago established, with reputational harm from harassment well known, with an entire cottage industry of workplace compliance and training adopted and encouraged for 30 years, why does so much harassment persist and take place in so many of our workplaces? And, most important of all, what can be done to prevent it? After 30 years – is there something we’ve been missing?"

    In a nutshell, YES! Much of the training done over the last 30 years has not worked as a prevention tool because – it has been too focused on simply avoiding legal liability. That last sentence was taken from the EEOC study!
