Phelps has been supporting not-for-profit organizations since 1986. As a supporter of trade, professional, special interest, common interest, charities, and foundations we have established a broad network of leaders among leaders in the sector. There have been many changes in the sector over the past few years, and notably one of the more common we’ve noticed is the need to serve the needs of multiple demographic groups. This requires a special kind of leadership that is inclusive, empathetic, and relational.
Whether its responding to an increased demand for services in times of constraint, leveraging technology to communicate with citizens and streamline processes or rethink approaches to problem solving and decision making in an age of complexity, we have the experience and insight that foster principle-centred leadership. We understand the key issues facing municipalities and partners with their leadership across the country, leveraging our broad network and candidate database, to ensure that the right talent is hired to build upon municipal strategic objectives and look to the forward horizon.

The role of Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) has changed dramatically over the past 5 years. CHROs are now active champions of organization-wide coaching and mentoring. They are active strategic business partners as much as they are innovators of 21st Century leadership development. Success for CHROs is measured as much by strong engagement scores as it is by the diversity and inclusion they foster.
Health care systems today are experiencing the effects of multiple shock waves. From changes in the funding system, new collaborative models of leadership, breakthroughs in research and an ever-changing organizational demographic, we understand the need for high-impact, high-results human resources support. We work with hospitals across the country to evolve teamwork, nurture culture and enhance community engagement.
At Phelps, we know the world of finance requires building smarter and more resilient functions that are forward-looking and better aligned to the business and proactive rather than reactive to managing tomorrow’s risks. High performers adopt a mind-set that is strategically attuned. Rather than reporting on or analyzing what has already happened, they think about opportunities and threats. They propose solutions that achieve strategic objectives with appropriate finance and people parameters.
At Phelps, our expertise in education extends beyond the search but the greater community that benefits from educational support.
