Who We Are
 
Emerson Human Capital Consulting Inc. is a change management consulting company with a passion for turning people potential into business performance. We are experts in behavior change. Clients call us when they need to transform, improve operations, deploy new strategy or technology, or enable employees to perform at a new level.
 
What We Do
 
Transformation: Achieving rapid, high-stakes change and creating change capability for the next ascent.
 
Change Management: Driving smooth, efficient implementation of any change, and securing sustained results.

Technology Change: Enabling the benefits of technology by influencing human performance. 
  
Why Emerson?
 
We were the first US company with a large team of full-time employees specializing only in behavior change. We employ only experts, like you. We’re not an IT consultancy or an accounting firm that also has a specialized practice – critical behavior change is all we do.
 
We are thought leaders in human performance. For example, the Association for Talent Development published our book series, which covers some of our favorite principles, tips and lessons learned: The Change Book, The Learning & Development Book, and The Technology Change Book.
 
We deliver for the best. We are the choice of some of the most successful and well-known companies in the world. We don’t like to drop names, mostly because our lawyers won’t let us. But if we did, we could tell you about an iconic clothing brand, an oil and gas giant, a global leader in hospitality, and a company that makes really fast shoes. Just to not name a few. 

Candidates who are currently employed by a client of Emerson Human Capital Consulting might not be eligible for consideration.
 Applicants for employment in the U.S. must have unrestricted work authorization which does not require sponsorship by the employer for a visa.
