What we do



“When team members trust each other and know that everyone is capable of admitting when they're wrong, then conflict becomes nothing more than the pursuit of truth or the best possible answer.” - Patrick Lencioni

Getting to the best possible answer, as Patrick Lencioni suggests, takes listening - not complaining, finger-pointing, or drama. Through greater understanding of varying points of view and motivators, we can move teams from unproductive gridlock toward producing results that benefit organizational performance and employee’s careers. Holmes Connections is an Authorized Everything DiSC Partner and builds cost-effective and time-sensitive programs to improve leadership and team dynamics.

Holmes Connections undertakes HR Administration for start-ups, small, and medium sized companies seeking short or long-term HR solutions.  While we have broad and in depth experience in HR Management, our ego is not so big that we have any issues rolling up our sleeves and doing what is needed.  This means we are qualified for big projects, and day to day administration support for small companies.

Often an employee is promoted to an HR role because leadership trusts them and knows them well. These individuals are frequently new to balancing the new demands and need support in order to build best HR practices, select the right Payroll/HRIS systems to reduce administrative needs, ensure compliance, and more. Holmes Connections is prepared to come along side internal HR staff and mentor and/or temporary support a variety of demands and projects that HR teams face.

The average placement rate for recruiters is 20% of a successful candidate’s first-year base salary. Unfortunately, the time and cost requirements of such recruiting services frequently result in the hurried hiring of the “right now” candidate, not the right candidate. Holmes Connections facilitates the recruiting process by preparing attractive job postings, reviewing CV/resumés, conducting phone screening with quick feedback for hiring managers, and providing a minimum of 3 short list candidates for face-to-face interviews.
