Our wide network of HR professionals cover every aspect of human resource management. With PeopleMost, you get access to the expertise that you need, when you need it, without having to hire all of this talent on your staff. This can be arranged either on a project-by-project basis or through a retained agreement relationship. Let us alleviate your HR headaches and help ensure that your team is prepared and motivated to take your organization to the next level!
When you partner with PeopleMost, you will have a dedicated account director who serves two important needs: they will be your point-of-contact and coordinator for access to our network of subject matter experts across the broad field of HR, and they will learn all about your organization and needs in order for PeopleMost to deliver a customized approach to your specific circumstance and challenges.
What’s the most critical part of your organization? Your people! They make the difference between failure and success. At PeopleMost, we excel at developing your people strategies in support of your business strategies. This means that you can count on us to understand your situation and goals, then utilize a customized approach for HR tools, systems, vendors, policies and support to help ensure that the people within your organization are ready and able to deliver for your customers.
Operational excellence within the administrative and tactical responsibilities of HR can be difficult for internal HR teams, let alone for other leaders whose professional experience does not include HR. Do you have the right support team lined up to accomplish your goals? Need help with special projects? PeopleMost can be your on-call, retained expert on all people matters.
Our president, Jeff Tomschin, has 25 years of experience overseeing all human resource (HR) management and organizational development (OD) efforts for US-based, international companies in the engineering, manufacturing and industrial services / MRO industries. Jeff has been responsible for talent acquisition, retention, employee relations, training, development, compliance, safety, compensation and benefit design and administration for diverse, privately-held businesses within a wide array of markets including aerospace, defense, semiconductor, energy, automotive, security and automated equipment/robotics.
Jeff holds a Master’s degree in Human Resources and Organizational Development from Eastern Michigan University (EMU), sits on the advisory board to the dean at EMU’s Owen College of Business, teaches graduate level HR / business courses part-time, is past President of the Detroit chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) and past Director for the Michigan Council of SHRM. Jeff was recognized as an Outstanding Alumnus by EMU in 2015.
Jeff’s certifications include: GPHR (Global Professional in HR) and SPHR (Senior Professional in HR), both from the HR Certification Institute; SHRM-SCP (Senior Certified Professional) from SHRM; CCP (Certified Compensation Professional), CBP (Certified Benefits Professional), and GRP (Global Remuneration Professional), all from the WorldatWork Society.
After many years in practitioner roles within the field of HR / OD, and 9 years at the C-suite level, Jeff now leads PeopleMost (PM) as its President and Chief Executive Officer.
Here at the Stryker School of Medicine, Western Michigan University, we engaged the services of PeopleMost (PM) for a much-needed, well-overdue and comprehensive update to our HR policy statements and manual. Jeff and his team did the legwork necessary to fully understand our objectives, our culture and our philosophies while being sensitive to our time commitment on the project (due to a significant number of other priorities demanding attention). Jeff was also able to provide us a unique perspective of the competitive landscape, offering suggestions and input that could be adapted for our academic environment. In an efficient and thorough manner, PM delivered dozens of new and updated policy statements for presentation to the Dean. Jeff is also very skilled at communicating complex topics, such as compensation and benefit plans. We have four distinct populations at Stryker: employees, residents, faculty, and physicians/executives. Jeff is a pro at customizing his approach for each and reaching successful respective outcomes.
I also have worked with Jeff as a volunteer within the Michigan SHRM organization. Jeff was instrumental in developing new, innovative programs, winning approval and council buy-in, and executing the vision to a high degree of success, all within a completely volunteer capacity and environment. He was able to recognize areas of need, empathize with challenges of all SHRM chapters in the state, and help turn the organization in a new direction during his time on the board and as Director. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Jeff again.
I have known and worked with Jeff for more than 20 years. He is a proactive and strategic leader who is not afraid to craft bold and innovative solutions to business challenges, carefully considering options, winning executive and employee support, communicating changes and ultimately delivering exceptional results for the organization and its employees. In one particular example, Jeff designed and coordinated the rollout of a controversial and complex new benefit plan in a manner that was the best I’ve witnessed. Jeff’s efforts reduced the company’s healthcare expenses by more than 40% year-over-year while maintaining high employee engagement, satisfaction, and recruitment/retention.
I have seen the expertise of Jeff and his team in action at a current client of mine. After the client had been struggling for years to solve efficiency and productivity issues, PeopleMost was able to evaluate their existing processes and staff, recommend solutions and then successfully implement -- bringing the client up to date, in compliance and contributing toward a high level of organizational performance. PeopleMost was able to make a significant impact in a short period of time. I have over 26 years of experience in the industry, and wouldn’t hesitate to introduce Jeff and his PeopleMost associates to my clients.
As President of Lapeer Industries, Inc, I enlisted the support of PeopleMost to stabilize and manage HR responsibilities when our long-time Director of Human Resources retired. Jeff’s company hit the ground running full speed and supported us beautifully, making what could have been a very challenging transition – easy. In addition to full scope, day-to-day HR support for 4 different plant locations, Jeff and his team at PeopleMost evaluated the HR function and made many recommendations for improvement to processes, procedures, policies and tools. Significant changes designed to help Lapeer reach its long-term goals were implemented. PeopleMost was also able to help tremendously with immediate, short-term needs, including pulling in a recruiting specialist to help us find, recruit and on-board dozens of skilled labor team members in the strongest job market the state has seen. The recruiting specialist was another great example of the great people and services of PeopleMost. Jeff remained personally involved to consult on strategic activities, improve payroll processes, train and mentor the HR and administration team, and position the company for major improvements in vendor selection, benefit strategy and processes, electronic enrollment, automated time keeping, and more. I sincerely enjoy working with Jeff and I highly recommend PeopleMost for all of your HR consulting needs.
