For Businesses

Coaching and Mentorship

Performance and leadership coaching/mentorship is an arrangement where we partner with you through a process that empowers and enables you to be more effective and realize your leadership potential both personally and professionally.  We provide a unique environment where we provide coaching/mentorship through a combination of coaching, advising and teaching.  We develop bold leaders who can fulfill on what matters and can do that under any circumstance.

Coaching develops potential, improves performance dramatically and puts individuals on the fast track; this happens through developing personal leadership skills, making decisions that make a difference, and improving communication and relationships.

Do you know that we also coach HR leaders? Often overlooked for coaching are HR leaders who are new to the role or who want to accelerate their career through coaching and mentorship.  We are HR leaders with extensive experience in leading HR teams/departments and we share our successes, challenges and experiences with other HR leaders through coaching.

HR on Call

We can provide you HR advice on an as-needed basis – do you sometimes wonder how to deal with your employees or if what you are deciding is legal or makes the most sense?  We can help.

Performance Management & Compensation

Do you wish people would just do their job and be happy? How do you make sure people do what you expect and contribute to the company? We will work with you to develop a simple performance management system that is easy to use, improves performance and helps you award bonuses and pay appropriately. We provide everything from management training to employee incentive plans. Our approach won’t be another complicated HR process that will eat up more of your time.

We review your current wage structure to ensure it is competitive, rewards performance appropriately and makes sense for the size of your company. We get you the answers to these questions:

  • What are the employee’s specific job responsibilities?
  • How are they performing in their role?
  • How do you define what excellent performance looks like with set criteria, how do you measure it, and how do you provide feedback to employees about their performance?
  • How are other employees in the company in a similar job being paid?
  • What is the industry paying?
  • How often should your employees get raises?
  • How should you bonus your employees?
  • How much can the company afford to pay?

Leadership Accountability

“Accountability is the glue that ties commitment to results” – Bob Proctor
We have a proven method to get your team on track and all pulling in the same direction. We meet with your leadership team on a monthly basis and we help you increase profitability, increase efficiency and get results.

Recruitment Strategies & Hiring

We don’t believe “there are no good people out there anymore.” We just know that they are hard to find.

We can help evaluate your needs, create job descriptions, find the right people, interview them with you, put the offer packages together, and have them walking through your door when you need them. Forget the usual headhunters and recruitment agencies, we use simple recruitment strategies to objectively assess candidates so we get the right people into the right positions at your company. We’ve hired everyone from welders to CEOs. We can even help you navigate the intricate and time-consuming process of hiring foreign workers through the LMIA process.

Not your typical headhunters, we hire good people — not just warm bodies. And we do it fast!

Policies & Procedures or Employee Handbooks

Have you ever read an employee handbook or HR policy manual that was easy to understand? Or interesting? Why should it be written in HR speak or legal-ease when no one talks like that?

Daeco writes them in a way that makes them fun, informative, legal, and easy to read. This document is given to every single employee in your organization and outlines the rules and expectations of your company, all while promoting the things that make it a great place to work. It also helps your managers lead their people with clear guidelines to ensure they are being consistent and legal.

Daeco can create an HR policy manual that also serves as a hip marketing tool that reflects your unique and desirable corporate culture.

Diversity and Inclusion

Are you trying to figure out how to be a more diverse and inclusive company?

We work with you to design and create a diversity and inclusion strategy for your company.  This strategy will align with your culture and ensure every decision you make is coming from a lens of being diverse and inclusive. We then work to operationalize and embed these behaviours into all of your processes, practices, procedures and systems. We can even create a customized workshop for your leaders and staff.

Managing Employee Issues including Terminations

Do you feel like the majority of your time is spent dealing with those “nitpicky” employee issues?

Handling difficult employee situations is one of the toughest and most time-consuming jobs managers face. Making sure that situations are dealt with fairly and legally may mean the difference between an effective solution and costly litigation. We work with you to develop strategies for dealing with poor performance, attendance concerns, and termination issues.

Outplacement Services

We are committed to the same thing you are – helping your employees transition to a new career once they have been released from your organization. While keeping your budget in mind, we provide customized services that are designed to meet each individual’s needs. We begin with an initial meeting and tailor our services to ensure the individual has the skills and tools they need to assess their personal and professional goals and develop an appropriate plan of action.

Workplace Investigations

Do you have a situation arising with an employee over a potential human rights, workplace violence, bullying, harassment or discrimination issue? We can help.

Harassment at work and other human rights matters are highly sensitive and emotional ones to deal with. Investigating such situations requires the use of sound investigative techniques and procedures. Daeco can provide practical guidance and access to experienced investigators that can help you deal with harassment at work and conduct effective workplace investigations. Our expertise allows your organization to move forward with certainty and take the appropriate action to correct the problem (if necessary), minimize liability (if any), and assist in identifying and implementing any proactive steps or measures to prevent a reoccurrence.

Professional Resume Review & Interview Prep for Individuals

Do you want to stand out from the competition and get an interview? We give you an honest opinion about your resume and cover letter and we will help you determine whether your resume needs an overhaul or just tweaking to take it to the next level. We can also give you the inside scoop on the potential questions an interviewer can ask and coach you on how to successfully answer them. Be ready to get the job of your dreams.

Interim HR Services

If you’re in between HR people, or your HR department is short staffed, we can help. We can act as your HR team until the right people are hired. And because we know the job so well, we can even help hire your new permanent HR staff.

We believe in delivering cost-effective customized HR solutions to you and have a tiered approach to the human resources help we provide. Often, you will need different levels of human resources support within your organization and it can be impossible for all these levels of support to be provided by one HR person.

Daeco offers three different levels of human resources support at different rates:

  • Strategic: This is the big-picture stuff. We facilitate discussions with your leadership team about what’s working, what’s not working, and where you want the company to be in the future. We also identify what’s missing in your company and help develop a clear path forward with an action plan. And we don’t just leave you with a plan and no clear understanding as to how to implement it. We help you move forward so at the end of our time with you, you can feel good that you actually achieved what you talked about – action – not just wishful thinking.
  • Tactical: This is the “doing” part. It can be one of two things:
    1. You’ve been through the strategic human resources planning with us and this is where we carry out the action plan. We start implementing what you’ve identified. We create timelines and responsibilities in order of priority.
    2. We start at the place where you are feeling the most pain and begin working immediately to get things off your plate.
  • Administrative: This is where we get you organized; from filing to entry-level recruiting to making sure all of your paperwork is in order and legal.
