The Christopher Group, a name involved in agile HR and business solutions since 1998, recently broke the news of introducing an HR consulting services division.

Brought to life in 1998 by Tom and Paula Christopher, the company has named Pam Noble as President of the newly created unit. Additionally, she will also be a practice leader to cater to the business’s growing diversity, inclusion, equity, and engagement practice (which now happens to be part of the consulting services division).

In the new role, Pam Noble will be responsible for the overall strategy and implementation of the division and managing the intellectual property, fulfillment of assignments within the new unit’s DEI and amp;E practice, and research.

Nat Schiffer, Recruiting Services Division Co-President and Managing Director, The Christopher Group, said,  “I have had the opportunity to work with Pam on several significant consulting projects. She is selfless and a great fit with our company culture of servant leadership.”

Nat added, “Additionally, Pam has dedicated her career to diversity, equity, inclusion and engagement initiatives as evidenced by her hard work and pursuit of her doctor of education degree from Wright Graduate University in transformational leadership.”

In addition, Tobin Anselmi will be associated with the firm as the unit’s talent management practice leader.

The idea behind

The brand-new consulting services division is curated to aid organizations with systems, tools, and procedures to provide effective and successful human capital solutions and leadership. Furthermore, to enable businesses to develop, motivate, engage, retain, and compensate the ones who showcase an exceptional performance graph.

The new unit will collaborate with teams and leaders to transform their business-enhancing capabilities, improve agility, reduce costs, increase innovation, and notably enhance individual and combined performance.

What does the consulting services division have to offer?

Under the consulting services division, TCG practice expertise will consist of HR audit labor/employee relations, talent management, compliance, DEI and amp;E, organizational effectiveness, talent acquisition, total rewards and HRIS, and the CHRO Academy.

The CEO’s take

Tom Christopher, Founder and CEO, expressed,  “The reality is that we have been providing these services in a demand-pull capacity to our clients for many years, and it was time to formalize the offering and practice.”

He added, “The big consulting houses are all excellent firms, but when we spoke to our clients, there has been a longstanding frustration with the quality of the consultants actually doing the work, the never-ending cost escalations, poor responsiveness, and ‘one-shoe-fits-all’ approach.

A Star Performer concept

Tom Christopher stated, “With a soft launch in 2020, a global pandemic sweeping the globe, and little to no marketing for the consulting services division, we were able to witness the concept establish itself as a star performer and high growth engine for the firm.”

He added, “We are most excited about the leaders who will run the division, the respective practice areas, and the incredible consultants that have joined our team. Our goals are going to be simple; we are going to provide better, faster, and far more cost-effective human capital solutions than any of the ‘big box’ competitors. Period!”
