Executive Leasing provides clients the opportunity to engage specific experienced skill sets as and where required within their business.
We are able to provide clients with experienced professional contractors in the areas of project management, feasibility analysis, systems and process development, accounting & financial modelling, strategic business analysis, human resources, production management, quality assurance sales & marketing and general management.
Human Resource Consulting
Having historically engaged with a broad cross section of industry we can assist with organisational design and planning, the development and integration of roles and the implementation and facilitation of performance review and staff development programmes. We support and encourage the development of succession planning and general HR support especially where smaller organisations do not have an HR function internally.
We are the South Island Representatives for the StaffCV applicant tracking solution and we support a number of clients in the use of these systems enabling them to cost effectively manage their own recruitment needs in-house.
In partnering with other professional services we undertake a range of business consulting assignments from assisting young start-up companies introducing structure and management disciplines, to working with established organisations. This includes facilitating strategic & business planning, designing, implementing and managing change processes, and assisting organisations in difficulty with business turnarounds and recovery.
Training & Development
This is a growth area and working with clients we can develop and deliver customised training programmes across a number of business areas, including sales & business development, customer service, health & safety, project management, leadership & supervisory management skills and time management. We also support the training services with ongoing coaching and mentoring and undertake training needs analysis. Much of our training programmes are enabled through utilising e-learning technologies.
Assessment & Psychometric Services
Psychometric assessment underpins both our recruitment and training development areas allowing us to compare staff against established benchmarks, or against people in similar positions. Assessment is also useful in staff development, performance management, outplacement and career management. Echelon Group offers a range of personality and skills tests that evaluate existing and or potential new staff, to help assist with sound hiring or people development decisions.
