Hampton Resources is pleased to offer our Employee Support Ombuds Service (E-SOS). Ombuds services are a neutral, objective resource for employees to discuss issues of concern to them in the
workplace. Ombuds aren’t a replacement for, or end-around internal human resources staff or other institutional resources, but a partner in addressing employee concerns and empowering them to seek
appropriate resolution and resources.
Ombuds services are best viewed as an employee benefit in much the same way as an Employee Assistance Program (EAP), but with a focus on workplace matters rather than personal matters. The Ombuds
service differs from the Employee Relations aspect of Human Resources precisely because of the Ombuds ability and mandate to be confidential, impartial, independent and informal.
Organizational ombuds provide a wide range of services to employees. We are available to discuss any concerns, complaints, or questions that employees may have. These issues may relate to
workplace policies, procedures, or practices, and can include matters such as harassment, discrimination, or conflict with coworkers. The ombuds provides guidance on how to navigate such situations
and identifies potential options for resolution.
Our team is experienced doing culture assessments, organization-wide surveys and analysis, interviewing executives and other stakeholders to determine organizational priorities. We have a solid
track record of creating and fulfilling detailed strategies and plans for providing and promoting organizational ombuds services.
