Add the capacity you need, with no BS, at a fraction of the cost.
HR doesn’t have to a necessary evil.
Maybe HR has been that overhead expense you wish you could spend on something more than payroll and an elaborate “let’s not get sued” insurance policy. You’re not the only one who feels that way.
Before meeting us, a lot of our clients saw HR like a dentist. They’re thankful for them when a tooth falls out, or when an employee wants to sue them because their tooth fell out, while on the job. But, on a typical Tuesday, they’d rather spend that time and money on pretty much anything else.
The truth is that dentists are generally pretty great people, and a human resources capability is a lot more than payroll and avoiding lawsuits.
But, for many fast-growing teams, it’s tough to know what the right next investment into HR looks like. There are a lot of bases to cover and few options that make you feel more excited than your annual cleaning.
At least until now.
Fractional HR Services
Many teams aren’t ready to spend $250K (or more) per year on a full-time CHRO who will suddenly bring an unknown voice to the decision-making table.
A Fractional HR Solution helps you to intelligently navigate risks, and plan for the future, without committing too much too soon.
Your fractional lead offers scalable solutions and expert guidance in four critical areas: talent management, compensation and benefits, compliance and risk mitigation, and culture.
We are your strategic “people problem” solvers
Recruiting and Staff Development
A member of our team will become a member of yours, covering these critical bases so your team can grow at the lowest possible cost to your current staff.
- Recruitment and hiring practices
- Onboarding practices
- Performance evaluations
- Employee engagement and retention
- Learning and development
- Succession planning
- Offboarding and termination practices
Compliance and Risk Management
We are not doom and gloom, and we don’t scare our clients into inaction.
Instead, we’re here to highlight your priorities, suggest manageable strategies to address risk, and then keep going.
We can help with:
- Centralized filing
- Background checks
- Drug testing
- Employee handbooks
- Health and safety policies
- Record keeping
- OSHA reporting
- Policies and guidelines

Benefits and Compensation
High turnover costs a lot of time, money, and sanity.
That’s why we work with companies like yours to prevent it, through smart reward structures that incentivize dedication and quality work.
We’re here to guide you in areas like these:
- Compensation practices
- Payroll processes
- Benefits packages and eligibility
- Employee rewards and recognitions.
Organization and Culture
Negative cultures are discouraging for everyone, and it’s easier than we’d like to think for a healthy culture to turn bad.
That’s why we emphasize organizational communication and culture practices, which empower your employees to be a part of creating and maintaining a healthy culture.
We can help you with:
- Employee relations and complaints
- Disciplinary processes
- Organization charts
- Role descriptions
- Employee statuses, like full-time versus part-time or temp verses contractor
