R. Holmes Strategic Business & Human Resource Consulting LLC. was formed in 2016 by me, Rakayia Holmes the Principal and Chief Strategist for the firm. Through years of business and management experience in industries including; residential care (3), retail (2), casino gaming (8), manufacturing (3), education (3) and finance (5) I developed the skills and a passion for solving complex problems.
I have been employed since the age of fifteen. However, I didn’t include my volunteer life guarding and paid camp counselor experience, though it did provide a good foundation on how to convince people to cooperate and get things done when you have nothing but a whistle as a resource 😊.
Early in my career, when faced with challenges I developed an undeniable ability to frame a problem, propose financially sound solutions and get buy-in at all levels of an organization to get things done. Naturally that means I spent a lot of unpaid time conducting research, talking to people, gathering and analyzing data to get to the root cause of problems. However through formal education and with more work experience I refined these skills over the years which led to the deployment of solutions quickly, saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and gave birth to this organization and for that, I am satisfied with my efforts.
Throughout my career I have been fortunate to meet and work with some equally passionate and even more talented individuals than myself. Each of whom, I hand selected to join me as consultants. Each person I selected is passionate in their area of expertise and excellent at creating solutions and developing tools to solve complex business problems for our clients.
