Elise Burns-Hoffman, the proprietor of Burns-Hoffman Consulting, incorporates into her daily work her considerable experience in and continued practice as a personal business coach, where the understanding of the possession and application of unique and general skills in specific work environments, combined with the personal energy of the individual, is the ‘key to success’.
The exposure to and the assessment of hundreds of actual working environments; job titles; key performance areas of work in different industries – white and blue collar, national and international – adds tremendous value to the success of an individual entering, re-entering and or transitioning in the working world, with or without having suffered an injury and or ill-health.
It is this very real understanding of the world of work that enables Burns-Hoffman Consulting to provide the level of robust professional opinion that is required when facing interrogation, challenge and or cross-examination.
Burns-Hoffman Consulting has a flexible approach to the manner in which assessments of individuals are carried out and accommodate such wherever it makes the most sense for the client. This may be in the Burns-Hoffman consulting rooms in Wynberg, Cape Town; at the work place of the individual, which inevitably includes a worksite evaluation; at the individual’s home or at some another suitable venue of choice. The choice of venue and timing of any assessment, as well as the turn-around-time with regard to the delivery of the completed report and or opinion, are important factors that are taken into account when matters are referred and taken on, so as to ensure as optimal and timeous process as possible for all concerned.
