My current role is likely being eliminated, so I’ve had to think about what I’d like to do for the first time in a while. I would be fine staying in an HR/TA role, However, I have started thinking about looking into roles with consulting firms. My forte is not in the technical realm, so my question is, when firms State they offer Human Capital services, are they mostly doing just HRIS implementation, or is there more to it from a strategy/development perspective?

Would you be interested in maybe taking some time to build your own business or consulting firm. If you're in the director role, you should be more than qualified to take on your own venture

It’s a good question. I worked independently (on the recruitment side) from 2009-2013, and I actually found it a bit lonely. Sure, I had clients and candidates, but they would come and go, and I missed the “team” feeling.
