Diane Biersteker created Human Resources Consulting, LLC in January 2011 starting from the belief that there was a need for HR support at small to mid-sized companies. She didn’t have a business plan or really a goal in mind, other than wanting to share her significant wealth of HR experience with businesses in Northeast WI. Diane knew a large number of businesspeople from her long career in HR so she started networking to share her “story” of the services she could provide. Starting from a bedroom converted to an office in her home, she began working with small to medium sized businesses that could not afford (or need) the services of a full time HR professional. Diane began partnering with company owners and local executives to provide HR support on an Ad Hoc basis, using her accumulated business and HR knowledge to assist and advise them on employee and business challenges.
Diane became the person they called for candid and confidential advice because the “issue” was something she had handled before and was able to solve creatively for the client. What she found, was that for the typical small company owner, Human Resources was the one area that they felt the least equipped to handle. Many an owner said the problem is……….”I don’t know what I don’t know” about HR.
