HR Consulting | Cambridge

Axiom | Locally Situated

Axiom Performance is locally situated near Cambridge, Ontario and primed to provide HR consulting services to clients with less than 750 employees; those that are large enough to have significant people strategy opportunities (eg. culture change, employee engagement, incentive design, talent development, growth, mergers, restructuring, etc.) yet small enough that they don’t have a full-time CHRO.

We have worked with organizations with as few as 5 employees and with publicly traded corporations of 75,000 plus employees.  Our sweet-spot is organizations with between 75 and 500 employees – those that could benefit from supplementing their current, more tactically focused, HR services in order to solve some of their pressing people strategy issues or achieve their business growth projections.  We work within one of two models: a) retained HR services (e.g. 1/2 day to 2 days per month), or b) project based assignments.

Axiom has worked locally with businesses in the following sectors: manufacturing, legal services, auto parts, health care, sales & distribution, not-for-profit, insurance, and agriculture.
