What does an EAP Counselor do?

Human resources consultants ensure that human capital serves the best interest at a company or organization and are called upon to advise companies on issues that involve the inner-workings at a workforce. They advise management on administering human resources policies and procedures and take responsibility for the successful, timely completion of human resource related projects and initiatives. They conduct research, track and analyze metrics, and suggest their insight to improve decision-making.

Human resources consultants advise personnel about recurring issues and problems and assist their team in recruitment, training, and employee management. They create and design plans to apply new techniques for driving changes in a company's HR processes and develop, revise, and implement HR policies and procedures. They suggest and manage implementation of suitable technology for business advancement and remain up-to-date with the latest trends and progress in the human resources field. Human resources consultants need a master's degree in human resources or a similar related field and hands-on experience with human resources software programs.
