Tips for customizing your HR Services Proposal
- Be succinct. Do not include any information that is not relevant or will not have any impact on the proposal. Your contacts are most probably members of the top management/executive team and they don't have the luxury of time to read through pages of texts that's don't provide much value.
- Articulate your value propositions. Put lots of thoughts into why your potential client should choose you over other HR consultants. Where possible, provide brief examples and measurable achievements of how you've helped past clients. If this is your first potential client, refer to your achievements at your previous workplace.
- Check for tone and language used. Avoid rhetorical flourishes. Aim for a professional looking and sounding proposal. Be careful with throwing too many HR jargons in an attempt to showcase your expertise. If there's a more simplistic word, consider using it as your proposal may also be read by decision makers who do not have HR experience/training.
