We’ve all done it. We go to a company’s website and after browsing for several minutes, we leave the site and venture on to another site. Do we actually know what products and services that the company offers? Do we know how we can benefit from this company? What motivated you to go to their website? What will motivate you to return?
At Foreman & Associates, LLC our team is focused on reaching out to the community at-large to ensure that employees, managers, business owners, and c-suite leaders know that we’re here and capable, and that we’re ready to help in whatever way possible.
Of course you can visit our website at ForemanLLC.com but that doesn’t mean that you will necessarily see how we can be of assistance to you and possibly your company. You can see our service offerings, but do you know why and how you may need help in these areas?
Do you even know if you need a consultant or business support specialist?
What we have found over the years is that a large number of business owners and executives don’t even know the answer to this question. Some don’t even know if they need help, let alone know the source of that help.
How many employees do you have? What are their roles? How many of these employees do you delegate tasks to that you would normally be responsible for?
How many of your employees have been with you for longer than two years? Longer than five years? Longer than 10 years? What keeps them committed to your company?
Where do you see your company in 5-10 years? What resources do you have that can help you achieve those goals?
Are you trying to grow your company over the next five-plus years? In what ways are you trying to achieve growth? What is your turnover rate for the past year or two? Do you know why your rate is where it stands? What could you do to lower your turnover rate? If you don’t know your turnover rate, why?
Do you have a well-equipped human resource department/team? If not, who handles your company’s HR needs? Does the head of that HR team work side-by-side with the owner or CEO of your company? If not, why? What activities are your HR team members focused on this year? What percentage of your company’s budget is allocated for HR, payroll, and benefits?
When was the last time your team performed company-wide job audits? What were the results from these audits? If you have never performed audits, why is this the case? How much money is allocated in the budget to cover training costs?
What is your company’s profit margin? What factors impact your margin? Who on your team is responsible for managing your company’s operations? How can you best support their efforts? If that person is you, what resources (human and other) do you have at your reach to assist you?
Who is responsible for your company’s marketing efforts? What makes them qualified to lead this charge? What achievements have been made under their leadership? How much does your company invest in marketing each year?
If you can easily answer these questions then you also most likely know why you need a consultant, and in which areas you believe you need the most help. If however you struggle to answer these questions then you probably also don’t realize the value of having a consultant working side-by-side with you and your team.
You also may think that you can’t afford a consultant. Well, that could be true if your online search directed you to the top 20 firms in the US and abroad. They rarely work with low-revenue driven companies, small startups, and companies that cannot budget for the billable rates that these firms are accustomed to charging. It’s okay, don’t stress. There are plenty of smaller, just-as-capable consulting firms that can assist you during these early stages. Foreman & Associates, LLC is smaller, extremely capable, highly competent, and has a track record of success. Our team members have an average of 20 years experience in consulting and business support.
One day your company will grow to a level that would normally be considered attractive to these larger firms–and at that time you will have the option of contacting them to see if they are a good fit for your growing needs. Matter of fact, our team could even provide you with a short-list of firms that could best serve you.
You can choose to continue your rewarding relationship with Foreman & Associates. Although quite ambitious, we prefer to not grow our team to reach the thousand-plus or even the five-hundred-plus mark. It’s not an attack on those larger firms. We love their work and celebrate their accomplishments. They have paved the way for the rest of us. We just choose to “stay in our lane”, creating and maintaining an environment that is more focused on the one-on-one relationships that we build with clients. That type of environment requires that we keep our team smaller and more manageable, and allows us to invest the time and resources in helping you with your organizational needs.
At Foreman & Associates our team consists of consultants and business support specialists, and some of our consultants are also business support specialists. Our focus is on consulting, operations management, human resource management, administrative support, and individual and group training and coaching.
If you simply need someone to come to your company with fresh “eyes” and tell you where you need help, how to fix a problem, or to identify opportunities that you and your team may be overlooking–then we can assist you with that. If you need a more hands-on approach where we not only conduct an analysis but we show you (through implementation) how to actually achieve these goals, then our team is ready to assist you. If you need to temporarily outsource some of your workload, then our business support specialists are here to serve you–even if that temporary assignment turns into something long-term. If you would prefer to not use a temp agency to have a specialist come to your work site (or work virtually) for a given period of time, then you can contact Foreman & Associates.
If you foresee inevitable change that you’re not sure how to roll-out while gaining employee buy-in, then call on our team to manage this process. If you have been noticing that there is inconsistencies in the way employees are performing specific job functions or tasks and you just can’t seem to get everyone to perform at the same level, then it’s time to call on someone who can help train your team members to not only perform effectively and efficiently, but also see the value in doing so.
The best way to see how Foreman & Associates can assist you with your organizational needs is to contact us. Let’s sit down and get to know each other better.
