Northern Teacher Education Program Council Inc (NORTEP-NORPAC)

http://nortep-norpac.webs.com/  

HMC Management Inc. led The Northern Teacher Education Program Council Inc. (NORTEP) through a governance review in 2012.  The process brought the 17 member board to consensus to complete major revision of NORTEP's incorporation documents and governance bylaws.  The collegial process led to creating a more effective and efficient Board of Governors.  The Board even agreed to reduce the board size by approximately 50%.  In addition, the board and senior management developed a clear understanding of the leadership role of both the board and senior management.

Council was very happy with the service HMC provided in finding and hiring a new CAO for us. Council did not have to screen a pile of resumes and it took away some of the stress of hiring your top person. It was very help full to have someone to guide you through the recruitment process.  I would have no issue with recommending Dean next time around.

In summary, Council was very happy that it chose to undertake the services of HMC in assisting us in the search for a new CAO. We found that Dean and Larry always acted in a professional manner with the best interests of the Municipality in mind. Timelines were met and in the end, our objective of getting a new CAO was achieved. Our investment in your company was well worth it. Thanks for the great work!

Gilbert Plains Recreation Commission, Gilbert Plains Manitoba

It was a pleasure working with Dean and Larry in developing a plan for the future for our local park and campground facility. Dean and Larry were able to help us in defining a sustainable vision for recreational services, from a municipal and community perspective. Their skills in navigating the process were first-class. From the onset of the research and information gathering stage, to facilitating meetings with stakeholders, goal-setting, drawing on expert advice, and responding to the public at a community meeting; HMC was instrumental in guiding a sound process and pulling the pieces together. Dean and Larry's approachable style, understanding of rural communities, municipal knowledge and experience were a great asset in our work with them. The final product which HMC provided, is a valuable planning tool which serves our immediate needs and will be a guiding resource for our community in the future.

Our RM used the services of HMC Management Inc. for hiring our CAO and found them to be very professional.  I would not hesitate to use their services again if the need arose.  I found them to be very thorough and the follow-up after the hiring was very assuring.

Town of Assiniboia, Saskatchewan

Our community has used HMC Management in a number of areas. First of all, they lead our New Mayor and Council through a Council Role and Responsibility Orientation Workshop, which was very helpful for our new Council.  In April 2013, they assisted us develop our first integrated plan (a Council driven strategic plan integrated with staff operations and action plans tied into our budget). In May of 2013, they were hired to develop a plan to search for a new Chief Administrative Officer. This was a fairly long process but proved to be very successful, as we filled that position in November of 2013. Through this time as well, HMC provided management and operational support for our Acting CAO as well as for Mayor and Council. We would highly recommend HMC Management to any municipality in need of direction and support.

Teaching English as a Subsequent Language Saskatchewan Inc (TESL Sask)

Prior to our project we received an extensive list of consultants from SaskCulture, and we emailed all of them to ask for submissions of a proposal.  HMC Management INC. http://www.hmcmanagement.net submitted by far the best proposal - concise, professional, and realistic. We did not take long to choose them as our consultant. Larry and Dean had done similar work in the past, most specifically with NORTEP (Northern Teacher Education Program Council), and we had faith they could help us.  They did an amazing, relatively fast, very thorough and thoughtful job with our organization. With their directness, but humor, they were able to get right to the bottom of our problem areas, and help us focus on the issues that we needed to focus on. When we got off-track, they pulled us back on track and did not allow us to 1) waste our time, or 2) fall into bad habits or old patterns. They questioned us in all the ways that we needed to be challenged and questioned, and gave us the harsh realities we needed to face. They also are very knowledgeable about all of the current acts and trends guiding non-profits, and made sure that we were in alignment with all current practices and policies.  I have no hesitation recommending them as strategic consultants. Their professionalism, experience, and respect is unmatched in my experience, and I would use them as a consulting service again in a heartbeat.

Past President, Teaching English as a Subsequent Language Saskatchewan Inc (TESL Sask)

Town of Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan

HMC Management Inc. was hired to facilitate a Strategic Plan and an Operations Plan for our community.  In addition, Dean and Larry provided a Governance Training workshop as part of the value-added component to their planning services.  Our Council was going through a challenging process which, in the end, required further guidance than initially anticipated.  Dean and Larry did not hesitate to assist our Council and Staff through this trying time and, in fact, went further than expected to lead us successfully through each stage.  Dean and Larry were always professional and honest. Their integrity and strong work ethic inspired all of us to raise the bar and perform more efficiently and effectively. They were able to provide insight and direction in a clear and concise manner, often using humour and a laid-back approached to keep us on track and focused. Most importantly, Dean and Larry are able to take difficult situations and provide realistic solutions that are manageable and straight-forward. I would highly recommend HMC Management Inc. to any organization requiring planning and direction. Dean and Larry are professionals that you can rely on for assistance, even after the ‘job’ is done.

Town of Moosomin, Saskatchewan

The Town of Moosomin had previously tried to recruit a candidate with accreditation of Civil Engineering, however, even with extended advertising in Regina Leader Post, Moosomin World Spectator, SUMA Website and through the SIAST Campus, we were unsuccessful to generate any interest in the position.  Council agreed to contract HMC to provide recruitment services, and we are thoroughly impressed in how the whole process transpired.  From the development of an Employment Opportunity Profile, to the suggested short listing of candidates, to background checks and references, to organizing and holding the interview process with candidates both in person and via Skype, the entire process worked without any issues. The Town also contracted HMC Management Inc. to perform a “Strategic Planning” session, and many action plans were developed.  Again, we were impressed by this whole process. Dean Yaremchuk and Larry Lang are professional and provide good value for the services they provide. Moosomin would indeed recommend HMC Management Inc.

Rural Municipality of Rockwood, Manitoba
The RM of Rockwood hired the services of HMC to provide us with an overall organizational review. We found their company to be very professional, practical and insightful. Thanks to the constructive recommendations of HMC, all levels of our municipality are operating more efficiently. HMC is one of the best long term investments a municipality could budget for.

Town of Carberry/Municipality of North Cypress-Langford, Manitoba

“We tasked Dean and Larry at HMC with a Feasibility Study for a new Rec Property in our community. From the beginning, they were very professional. As someone who was new to my position, I wasn’t sure of the process, and they provided clear guidance on the project. Their research into our current facilities was very thorough, from tours to looking into our bookings etc. for all of our different areas covered all angles. They met with our board regularly, and everything was very transparent. They helped us plan and execute a public meeting to unveil our plan to our community, and their presentation was very clear and well received by our citizens. Their partnership with aodbt Architecture was very close, and they worked very well together to come up with a plan for us to use to begin developing our new Rec Area. They were able to consolidate our various properties into one simple, clean, and well-designed property. I would not hesitate to recommend their company to anyone.”

Grady Stephenson, Manager of Parks, Facilities, and Sanitation

South Interlake Planning District, Stonewall, MB

“In 2016, I came across a detailed job advertisement for a newly posted General Manager position with the South Interlake Planning District (SIPD). After inquiring about the position, Dean Yaremchuk of HMC Management Inc. quickly responded and provided me with a detailed information package outlining the role and responsibilities of the position and a profile of the SIPD organization. The information package, which was professionally prepared by HMC, further peaked my interest. After submitting my resume to HMC, Dean conducted a preliminary telephone interview with me, which then resulted in an in-person interview with HMC and the SIPD Board. Following the interview process, I was offered and very pleased to accept the General Manager position with the SIPD. Having been through several in-depth interview processes for high-level management positions throughout Canada, I can say with confidence that HMC Management Inc. coordinated the most professional, transparent, and efficient recruitment process that I have ever experienced. Any questions I had during the hiring process were quickly answered by telephone or email from the day I first inquired about the position to the day I was hired. I appreciate everything HMC did to assist me during the recruitment process, and would certainly welcome the opportunity to work with them in the future.

Eric Shaw, General Manager, South Interlake Planning District

Riverdale Municipality

Four years following amalgamation, Riverdale Municipality continued to struggle with the structure of the “new municipality”.    Riverdale Council made the decision to hire HMC to take a hard and unbiased look at the operations of the municipality and review the entire structure.  Dean and Larry provided a thorough review and recommendation which consisted of creating effective job descriptions under a new simplified structure and guiding us into putting the right people into the right positions.  Their no-nonsense yet humorous approach kept us engaged and feeling positive about making some very tough decisions.   Although we are still in our first year of changes, we continue to implement the recommendations we received as part of our overall plan and already see the positive change in our work environment.  We would definitely recommend HMC Management to assist in making positive changes to any organization.
