Our mission is to re-thinking HR and help founders build top-notch People strategies which are adapted to the new job market and accessible to even the smallest companies.
Anne Caron Consulting is The People Strategy partner for all startups and SMEs willing to develop scalable people organisation and looking for alternative and innovative solutions adapted to today’s world.
We believe that the current HR models are broken. Processes do not have to be daunting, tedious, or complicated and people management strategy should be accessible to everyone. People are the most valuable assets of your company, and therefore it is of great importance that companies have it right from day one. After meeting with a number of startups, we realised that startups are faced with various constraints - resources, attracting talents, retaining talents, and managing people. As such, we are dedicated to helping startups and SMEs integrate a seamless people management process into their organisational culture to attract, retain, and develop the best talents for your workplace.
The 5 Pillars of People Strategy
From our research and experience, we discovered that the existing HR models fail to attract, engage and develop efficiently talents. Most of them were designed more than a century ago at the time of high manufacturing industry growth. The environment has drastically changed, and so have the HR needs! HR cannot be just a set of policies anymore, it needs to be integrated into a larger strategy: The company People Strategy. Besides, the development of startups and SMEs which are characterised by their small size, high growth potential and fast-paced environment, emphasises the need for even more specific, adaptable and scalable approaches. Taking these into consideration, we have devised a simple yet comprehensive approach of tackling people management problems - The 5 Pillars of People Strategy - that is easily integrates these characteristics.
