ORO People Solutions

ORO People Solutions Limited is a consulting, learning and technology services business, helping clients to improve their people capability and growth potential.

The company was founded by me Jim Whelan in February 2018. I am the owner and sole employee of the business. I draw on a small panel of expert associates as needed to deliver client projects.

My aim is to address common flaws in clients’ resourcing processes, specifically the prevalence of unconscious bias in hiring and people development, ineffective recruitment strategies and the need for better technologies to manage people. The catalyst for improvement is enabling the removal of subjective judgement from hiring and promotion decisions. This equips clients to build more diverse and more capable workforces and thereby increase productivity and growth potential.

Clients will benefit from significant advances in hiring quality and capability of talent achieved through the following services:

  • Provision of diversity consulting and workshop products focussed on awareness of unconscious bias, best practices in selection, effective use of technology and measuring outcomes.
  • Design and implementation of innovative talent acquisition and pipeline development strategies.
  • Provision of expert advice on smart resourcing technologies including the use of predictive software applications, artificial intelligence and cognitive profiling tools.
