HUMUS Consulting

Humus environmental & general business solutions

HUMUS consulting is a general management consultancy firm with extensive experience in the Caribbean. From our locations in Suriname, Guyana and Trinidad we assist our clients in the areas of strategy, project management, internationalization processes, process management, environment, strategic human capital, technology, research, social entrepreneurship, branding, communication and finance.

We achieve success through our pragmatic and customer-oriented approach to projects, where the design and implementation are done within a framework of success. The realization that the success of our customers helps direct growth for both HUMUS consulting and the community is at the basis of our customer dedication.

Growth is a natural process and is embedded in everyone's DNA. As a person, as a company or as a community, you often do not recognize the growth that you go through in "difficult times". However; a seed will grow in humus (fertile soil), crisis or not.

HUMUS Consulting supports its clients in writing an international business plan. In this process, we first map out the institutional environment and the specific sectors of industry and advise the customer after a business scan on the entry strategy to be followed. This process also includes a market orientation with one of our consultants.

HR Transformation
Every HR department knows the necessary areas of tension. To contribute to the strategic goals of your organization, but also help managers with difficult issues concerning employees. Humus Consulting helps you through an HR vision development process. By determining what is really important for your organization. Furthermore, together with you, we will investigate possible improvement options within HR in the area of organization, job and task allocation, processes, competencies and coordination.

One of the most complex and challenging HR topics is to let employees perform optimally. Research shows that motivation is the basis for performance. Motivating employees is, therefore, one of the most important conditions in performance management.
Humus Consulting offers practical solutions based on the latest HR insights. In this way, we help you with the vision on performance management and its translation to suitable instruments.

  • Humus Consulting supports organizations in drawing up competency profiles. We often organize workshops with a delegation from managers, employees and Works Council.
