Merge to HR article?[edit]

No, HR consulting and management consulting are different fields with independent histories dominated by different firms. This article should be properly developed, unfortunately I am not competent to do this (which is why I went to Wikipedia in the first place). I do know quite a bit about the other genres of consulting though. steven 10:35, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

I'm not sure I understand what makes this article a stand-alone outside of Human Resources. A merge may be in order if the material here belongs in that article instead. MKoltnow 05:08, 8 February 2007 (UTC)

More appropraite to merge to Management Consulting as is it a specilaist field with MC.--Pandaplodder 16:59, 26 March 2007 (UTC)

I support any merge as this article as it stands is likely to be overrun with linkspam. MKoltnow 18:00, 7 June 2007 (UTC)

HR Consulting is a subset of Management Consulting because Human Resources Management is a core aspect of Management Accounting. I am in support of a merger between these two articles.Deone 13:29, 23 October 2007 (UTC)

No, if different fields, may or may not, be subsets of one another, it would be best to NOT merge the articles but simply link them, in order to allow the potential of a COMPLETE in depth development of either or both article(s). Also, such vast fields would best be illustrated by different fully developed articles with links amongst them, rather than one HUGE article with many many subsets. 17:28, 28 October 2007 (UTC)

I question why this is considered an article worthy of separate entry at all. Purely providing a list of subjects on which HR consultants can advise on is to a large extent just a summary of what HR is all about anyway. True a small number of these are ones which firms more frequently seek external expertise and might find a home in a discussion on Management Consultancy. The inclusion of some selected Human Resource Consultancies is also inappropriate. I do not think this justifies the current distinct entry as the disciplines are intertwined. It does not further add to this as an encyclopaedia entry and I can see considerable issues arising with every Tom, Dick and Harriet wanting their firm small or large being incorporated here. (I suspect it might contravene Wiki rules to list commercial firms in this way). In the UK HRConsultancy is not seen as a subset of Management Accounting a fad which has thankfully fallen out of fashion.)Tmol42 14:16, 4 November 2007 (UTC)

Recent improvements to the article by User:Email4jonathan have made the article more substantial and taken away its use as a coatrack for boosters of various consultancies. I don't think there's any reason to merge the articles. — Malik Shabazz (talk · contribs) 17:57, 31 January 2008 (UTC)


The article certainly describes HR consulting in the US, but I'm not sure whether it adequately covers HR consulting in other countries. Also, it isn't clear to me whether the dollar figures are solely for the US or the companies' global operations. Unfortunately the source isn't clear either. — Malik Shabazz (talk · contribs) 17:57, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

I don't understand what all the fuss is about b/c all the major HR consultancies are international companies, and their revenues (as reported on this page) reflect worldwide figures (go check out their individual sites for more citations). --Email4jonathan (talk) 19:16, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Is there any reason the global tag should still be on this article? I think the article is as global (and neutral) as it can be for the current time. The major players in the industry all serve an international clientele. Thanks! --Eustress (talk) 17:25, 2 April 2008 (UTC)
Is it the 'Qualifications and certifications' section? These will presumably be national, but this has not been specified. Wikiphile1603 (talk) 22:14, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

  • Support I work in the HR consulting field, and I don't believe I've ever seen the phrase with a hyphen. — Malik Shabazz Talk/Stalk 17:15, 18 September 2013 (UTC)


I have requested this move back to Human resource consulting as it is not the case that Human and resource are hyphenated either currently or in the past.Tmol42 (talk) 15:59, 18 September 2013 (UTC)
