Stage 1 – Let’s begin

A chat with Skildare founder Diane Loong or General Manager Brooke Reynolds kicks off our onboarding process.

You’ll find that their personalities will put you at ease instantly as they start getting to know you and your business.

But this call isn’t just about outsourcing HR.

We believe in building relationships with clients first, not selling solutions. This initial conversation sets the foundations for a great partnership. We’ll learn all we can about you, your business and your goals.

Stage 2 – Let’s talk HR solutions

Now that we know more about your business, we’ll dig deeper into your outsourcing HR needs. We’ll arrange an in-person meeting, either at our office or on-site at your business, where’ll we’ll talk more about the outsourced HR support that you need now.

Remember, it’s a two-way street. Your experience and business knowledge will help us develop the right solution.

Skildare is open and transparent about our fees, our process and what you can expect each month. At the end of this stage, we’ll give you a proposal that is easy to understand and includes details about us, your business, a timeframe and what we’ll be working on together.

To help you feel more comfortable, you’ll receive a bio introducing you to your dedicated HR consultant, who will be working closely with you.

We are very deliberate in matching our clients with our consultants and make sure that we get the right fit, including expertise, level of experience, personality, and so on, so you’ll feel confident that you’re making the right choice.

Stage 3 – Getting set up

At this stage, we warmly welcome you into the Skildare family and introduce you to your trustworthy HR business consultant. We’re thrilled that you’ve chosen Skildare as your single source for all your outsourced HR matters.

The best part is that we suggest bringing along key members of your business to meet Diane, Brooke and your new go-to person for all things HR. After all, it’s about building relationships.

This stage is about mapping out your HR priorities and agreeing on the little details and how we’ll work together.

Stage 4 – Let’s get started

There’s no dawdling or dragging our feet. We’ll launch right in and start by ensuring you’ve got the right outsourced HR solution to suit your business. Communication is key, so you will always have a clear line of sight on what we are working on and can be assured that we maintain regular contact both on and off-site. Additionally, you will be provided with a monthly roadmap report that summarises everything we’ve achieved for the month and outlines the agreed-upon priorities for the following month.

We’ve raved on about our values of delivering outstanding service and not being salesly; now we’ll prove it. Skildare will never back you into a corner and sell you something you don’t need. We stand by this promise by never locking you into a fixed-term agreement. Our clients choose long-term relationships with us because of the value we add to their business—not because we force them.
