TCG Launches Innovative Consulting Services Division

TCG CSD Launch

TCG CSD Launch

The Christopher Group (TCG), one of the Nation’s Leading Agile HR Business Solutions firms officially announces the launch of their HR Consulting Services Division (CSD). For over 22 years, TCG’s award-winning and proprietary Targeted Executive Search process has provided clients across all industries and sizes, the highest performing HR professionals, and has positioned TCG’s Recruiting Services Division (RSD) as the premier HR boutique executive placement provider.

Now TCG’s mission is to become the leading boutique provider of Human Capital Consulting Solutions and to DISRUPT the traditional business model for Human Capital Consulting.  This division will help institutions of all sizes with systems, tools, and processes to deliver effective human capital solutions and leadership that enables them to retain, motivate, engage, develop and compensate the highest performing professionals. TCG will work with leaders and teams to transform their organization enabling greater efficiencies, lower costs, improved agility, expanded innovation, and significantly improved individual and collective performance.

Tom Christopher, TCG Founder & CEO shared, “The reality is that we have been providing these services in a demand-pull capacity to our clients for many years and it was time to formalize the offering and practice.  The “Big” Consulting Houses are all excellent firms but when we spoke to our clients there has been a longstanding frustration with the quality of the consultants actually doing the work, the never-ending cost escalations, poor responsiveness, and “one-shoe-fits-all” approach, especially for firms in the $500M – $5B Market Capitalization.”

The Christopher Group’s Consulting Services Division Changes All That!

CSD is a purposeful combination of internal and external subject matter experts who on average possess 25+ years in their HR specialty while working within the best HR shops globally.  This growing TCG Consultant Seal Team (as Mr. Christopher likes to refer to them) is comprised of the finest HR thought leaders who are mid-career retirees, former HR Executives, and/or former practitioners who have hung their own shingles as an individual HR consultant. We have banded them together to create a powerful, efficient, agile, and highly impactful force for service provisioning to our Clients.  In simplest of Terms, TCG CSD provides a far superior consultants, who are far more responsive and agile, and at a lower price due to our absence of bloated infrastructure so common among the Big Consulting Houses.   TCG can easily scale in concert with client projects without having to fall into the trap of having expensive and vast overhead and under deployed labor lines.  Additionally, clients will have access to a far superior/heavier consultant pool of subject matter experts who have spent their careers in their specialty, not someone who has simply graduated with an MBA and has gone through a big-box consulting training program and has two-plus years as a road warrior.

“I have worked with TCG for many years as both a Candidate and Client.  They have always been outstanding to work with.  When I learned of this highly innovative offering and the Team leading it, I was intrigued,” reports a recent TCG CSD Client.  “I gave it a shot and I must state, this is a far better and more cost-effective consulting solution than anything else in the marketplace.  They are on to something here and I will be using them for all my future consulting needs”. 

Within the Consulting Services Division, TCG Practice Specialties will include:
  • HR Audit, Compliance, Labor/Employee Relations
  • Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Engagement
  • Talent Management & Organizational Effectiveness
  • Total Rewards & HRIS
  • Talent Acquisition
  • The CHRO Academy

“With a soft launch in 2020, a global pandemic sweeping the globe, and little to no marketing for CSD, TCG was able to witness the concept establish itself as a star performer and high growth engine for the firm”, said Mr. Christopher. “We are most excited about the Leaders who will run CSD, the respective Practice Areas, and the incredible Consultants that have joined our team!  Our goals are going to be simple; we are going to provide better, faster, and FAR more cost-effective human capital solutions than any of the “Big Box” competitors. Period!  THIS IS A GAME CHANGER!”
