Our Company Background
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 business people 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 realized there was a strong need for HR support on an “as needed basis” within Northeast WI. In response to that need, her company evolved and grew to be able to oﬀer a comprehensive “à la carte menu” of HR and business support services.
Since our origins in 2011, we have grown from a solo business practice to a team of seven HR professionals. From our humble beginnings, this HR Consulting ﬁrm grew one client at a time, thanks to the valued referrals of our clients and other business colleagues. To date, we have been selected as the HR partner for over 250 businesses across Northeast WI and the Upper Midwest adding new clients on a regular basis each month.
We obviously outgrew that bedroom in Diane’s home. As the team expanded, we moved to rented oﬃce space for 4 years and then in 2018, we purchased our own oﬃce building. We take great pride in utilizing our signiﬁcant HR knowledge, business integrity and wealth of business acumen to assist our clients. Our motto of “Solutions, Services, and Support” along with hard work and determination has led Human Resources Consulting to become one of the most reputable and relied upon outsourced HR departments in Northeastern, WI. The ability to serve as an Interim, Ad Hoc, or long-term solution has given companies the ability to adjust, grow and have conﬁdence in their employment practices. Diane and her team of HR professionals continue to grow and show success in their contemporary and versatile Human Resources support model.
Anne Wettstein and Nick Erler, two of Diane’s children, followed her into the ﬁeld of Human Resources and Business Administration. As the consulting business grew, Anne and Nick left their successful management roles with other companies to join Diane, ultimately to become partners in the ﬁrm. As partners and certiﬁed SHRM professionals, Anne and Nick continue the rich legacy and commitment to service with integrity and creativity ensuring the continuation of the ﬁrm for at least another generation. We look forward to working with you over the next several generations!
