HR Strategy & Consulting
Business-aligned people strategy and HR services that transform HR from a cost center to a strategic enabler of competitive advantage for your organization.
What Sets LEVATA HR Strategy & Consulting Apart
We’ve worn your shoes. Each of our HR Service Leaders has been a senior HR leader or executive during their career. Having been in your shoes, we can relate and partner with you in candid conversations about the challenges and decisions you face.
Sweet spot of business, HR, and consulting expertise. We aren’t a large management consulting firm with a Human Capital Management practice, and we aren’t a niche service provider specializing in a single area of HR. We’re a company that knows human performance inside and out, blending this knowledge with a wealth of corporate leadership and consulting experience to Elevate People. We understand how all HR and business functions are interdependent, and we know how to work each lever to unlock the best human performance in an organization.
Focus on creating HR-Business partnership. We elevate HR leaders so you can be seen as that strategic advisor for the C-suite and better partner with the business. We help you design solutions and present those solutions in a language that will resonate with the business. Our team’s business process and strategy experience enables us to bridge this gap and align HR to bolster organizational goals and strategies.
When we talk to CHROs and other HR leaders, we know we’re talking to fellow People People. We understand the art of helping individuals thrive and harnessing the power of the collective. We help our clients build environments where employees are excited about growing and innovating; where the business, having invested in its people, can execute strategy and seize new opportunities; and where the internal culture creates joy that draws in new customers and talent alike. Unfortunately for many organizations, there is a gap between this vision and their current reality, driven by a legacy perception of Human Resources as a transactional cost center.
Shaking Up how People View HR
Here’s the thing: HR is full of People People. People who are empowered by elevating others. Our goal is to enable the people who work in HR to use their passion for growing others as their superpower. With the right strategy, processes, tools, and decision support in place, HR can empower all employees to drive innovation in an inclusive workplace. Far from being a cost center, an HR function that is doing its job right is creating tangible value for the organization.
Unlocking Human Performance through Better HR-to-Business Partnerships
Your people are your greatest asset. No single program, project, or technology can transform an organization like people can. We support HR leaders in helping their organizations unleash the power of their people. This is achieved when HR leaders partner with their fellow executives and connect with both management and “boots on the ground” employees to understand what the business needs and create modern people strategies that support those needs.
Here are a few examples of how we’ve helped clients with their HR strategy:
Designing nimble and flexible HR service models
“Build vs. Buy” planning to invest in the talent and future capabilities and culture
Developing Employer of Choice strategies
Redesigning onboarding to accelerate the impact of new hires
Retaining culturally aligned, strong performing talent
Upskilling talent through education, experience and exposure
Infusing diversity of thought, experience, and background to position your workforce for the future
Elevating the strategic role of HR teams

In a recent example, our customer was a new CHRO seeking to define a rewards philosophy for her organization. Her C-Suite peers had misaligned expectations of what the new philosophy would achieve and did not want to fund it correctly. We helped this CHRO become a strategic advisor to her peers, correcting the misalignment and defending the path forward she knew was right. This paid off significantly when her rewards strategy, properly structured and funded, was insulated from organizational cuts the business experienced shortly afterward.
Our broad and deep business experience combined with our HR backgrounds adds instant value for our clients. We partner with you to put in place strategies, programs and processes that get ahead of future challenges. We start by listening, and every recommendation we make based on our real-word experience, designed to fit your organization goals and strategy. We care about your business and will treat it as our own.
