HR management and services for small businesses, provided on an outsourced basis. Bringing 25 years experience to support your company on a cost-effective basis.

I provide HR services for small businesses, and early to mid-stage growing organizations that, due to budget constraints, need to outsource HR functions. Small and early-stage organizations do not have the headcount or budget to justify hiring in-house FTE’s for Human Resources Management--as a consultant I can meet your needs in a cost-effective manner. I will work on-site as part of your team, or on a project basis.


Sample consulting projects include:

Review company policies and practices to ensure compliance with State and    Federal labor regulations (Human Resources Audit). 

Review compensation program for market competitiveness. Assure mission-critical jobs are appropriately compensated. 

Counsel management on employee relations issues. 

Strategic recruitment and hiring. 

Review, prepare and update policies and employee handbooks. 

Write/refresh job descriptions and check for FLSA compliance. 

Benefits program design and evaluation including fiduciary issues related to retirement plans. 

Technology review and vendor selection for Human Resource information systems and payroll. 

On-going, on-site relationship to support all your HR needs.
