Succession Planning




Stone Strategies is a full-service human resource consulting organization based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and with clients across North America, we specialize in maximizing people potential in organizations.

We are not your typical HR experts -we believe in strategic HR that is bottom-line driven and is constantly relating actions back to the company brand by thinking about how to engage employees to give discretionary effort (and help you make more money!)

We do this by assisting companies to attract / retain / develop / build teams / engage / enhance policy / improve culture. At Stone, we specialize in small to medium sized businesses (we work with 25+ companies currently) –we can provide you with an oncall HR professional. We can be, in essence, your virtual Human Resources Department.

We work in all areas of HR, but our real specialty is helping companies manage people on the front end (recruiting and also orientation programs) , in the middle (Performance Conversations and Succession Planning) and on the back end (saying goodbye better). In everything we do –and always keep laser-like focus on your brand. Stone has consulted for the following sectors: Consumer Electronics, IT, Crown Corporations, Agriculture, Non-Profit, Beverage, Industrial B2B, Retail, Finance, Pharmaceutical, Education, Law, Engineering and Manufacturing.
