Our Sweet Spot: Human Resources and Professional Leadership Services

PowerUp Leadership is a trusted professional leadership services provider to many individuals and organizations. We are successful when our clients can attract the right employees and retain those employees. A clear human resources strategy, building the team’s leadership capabilities, is a key part of any organization's success. All of our HR consultants are Certified Professionals in Human Resources and regulated by the ethics and professional code of conduct required by Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations.

PowerUp Leadership's executive search services delivers exceptional employees for our clients' hard to fill roles. We have extensive experience designing and implementing different human resources programs, including coaching and career development, and performance management. We love working with small businesses to get the human resources foundations in place like HR policies, job descriptions, recruitment plan, succession plan, leadership development, and employee training to maximize return on investment. A key part of our offering is human capital risk management to reduce the many risks people introduce to a business. This enables our clients to minimize lawsuits and employee grievances. Human capital risk mitigation is a key part of the governance process for boards, and we can help lower your risk through proper training, HR policy review, and communication.
