Pay Equity

Pay Equity has not gone away and most employers bound by either federal or provincial legislation need to have a legally defensible Pay Equity Plan in place. Brown Consulting Group helps employers like you design and implement your first plan or revise your existing plan to ensure legislative compliance.

Employee Engagement Surveys

Employee engagement surveys are a great way to find the pulse of your organization. Input from employee surveys can help you with strategies for better employee engagement and improved productivity. We provide a variety of survey options including online, focus group or individual face-to face interviews. Customized to your requirements, the survey can be as narrow or broad as you’d like. Results include a detailed report and implementation strategies. For more information, read our article, “Re-Engaging Your Employees.”

Exit Interviews

Exit interviews can provide valuable information to employers. However, exiting employees may be reluctant to share information for fear of ‘burning bridges’ and companies lose out on valuable and timely information. Brown Consulting Group provides third-party exit interview process. Questions are customized for the employer. Employee anonymity is guaranteed so exiting employees are more comfortable to be forthcoming in their responses. Companies are provided with detailed quantitative and qualitative reports (monthly or quarterly), which can help them to address internal issues and reduce turnover.

Workplace Investigations

Violence, harassment and discrimination in the workplace are serious issues and need to be dealt with appropriately to ensure legislative compliance or avoid costly litigation. We provide a skilled investigator to conduct an unbiased, third-party investigation of your complaint.
