WHAT WE DO
Our services support you in optimizing your HR processes for a modern human capital management.
- Employee Relations
Drummer Finch & Williams offers a complete menu of employee relations products and advisory services. Through our proprietary “HR Help Desk” we can provide “real time” advice and counsel on day-to-day HR issues; such as policy and procedure, including Employee Handbook preparation; employee discipline and “how to guidance” on responses to third party inquiries, such as, worker’s compensation matters, unemployment claims, state and federal EEO complaints. Proactive EEO and OFCCP (Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs) compliance and compliance audit management services are available. We also provide objective and independent workplace investigations conducted by licensed attorneys.
- Labor Relations

Drummer Finch & Williams has experience assisting clients with WARN, NLRB, Taft-Hartley and right-to-work issues.
- HR & Regulatory Compliance & Audit
In highly successful organizations, effective compliance and audit processes reside at the intersection of good human capital management and governmental regulation. For some governmental regulations, the HR compliance requirements are apparent. For example, with OFCCP, AAP, EEO-1, Vets 4212, Title 7, Title 9, FLSA, OSHA, ERISA and I-9 regulations, the reporting and audit responsibilities fall clearly within the HR domain. While other regulations, such as SOX, FAR, CAS where the Finance, Legal, Procurement or Supply-Chain functions may take the lead, there are still significant HR implications. Consequently, a business partner like DFW that brings a comprehensive understanding of regulatory requirements, the enforcement environment and the inter-play between all corporate functions is imperative. We build organizational capability by designing compliance and audit processes that truly integrate all of the relevant parts of the business in our solutions.
- Talent Management
The three pillars of our talent management offerings are talent acquisition/recruitment, colleague/leader development, and selection and succession planning. While Drummer Finch & Williams is not an executive search firm, our focus is on implementation of highly effective strategic and tactical approaches to identifying, attracting and retaining stellar talent.
- Organizational Effectiveness
Helping organizations define and implement productive strategies to achieve their business objectives is at the core of what we do. We tailor best-practices to align with client’s culture and values to yield tangible and measurable results. Our work generally begins with mapping existing practices and analyzing the gap between the current state and changes required to achieve the desired future state. Our guidance includes a realistic assessment of the organization’s readiness for change, as well as practical gauge of the time and resources required to effect the change.
- Diversity & Inclusion Management
At the core of our diversity management and inclusion practice lies the fundamental philosophy that an organization’s commitment to diversity and inclusion must be business driven with a commitment from the top of the house. Our services include assessment and diagnostic work, training and education, strategic integration into other HR processes, such as talent management, recruitment and succession; and business initiatives, such as strategic planning, core values, and key-performance indicators and customized target marketing. Our most recent research and guidance on attraction, engagement and retention of millennials in the workplace has helped a number of our clients integrate social media and other technological resources into their inclusion programs. Our proprietary Diversity 5G product helps clients transform their diversity and inclusion efforts into a sustainable best in class, leading edge approach that yields targeted and measurable results.
- Executive Coaching
Our coaches are trained and certified in performance, leadership, business and life coaching. Our primary executive coaching model is client-driven and with an acute focus on the individual and the integrity of the coaching relationship, yet flexible enough to accommodate input from a talent management perspective where our services are retained through corporate sponsorship. We uphold the highest ethical standards and confidentiality. Private client executive coaching independently allows an executive to engage in deep development, centering on both personal and professional growth. We also have extensive experience coaching individuals in the legal and medical professions, addressing issues ranging from managerial effectiveness, disruptive physicians, career transition and professional practice management and profitability.

Drummer Finch & Williams has experience with every aspect of pay policy and practice, including, salary administration, wage & hour (Fair Labor Standards Act), equity compensation, executive compensation and perquisites. Our philosophy is that traditional employee benefits an integral part of compensation, and we enable our clients to design, budget and communicate employee benefits as such.
