Not sure if HR Collaborative is right for you? Here are some frequently asked questions. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, we’d love to hear from you.
With an individual HR professional, your benefit is limited to one person’s expertise. With a collaborative, you glean from the collective knowledge, perspective, and experience of an expert team without the price tag of an in-house HR department.
We create custom solutions rather than using cookie cutter approaches, and we work alongside our clients at every step to implement a plan rather than telling them what to do. Unlike consulting firms, we both advise and implement changes to improve your business. Other firms tend to be either high tech or high touch; we are both.
We understand that compliance can be scary and overwhelming. That’s why we are meticulous in our assessments and thorough in our corrective measures. We guarantee that when we’re done, you’ll have nothing to fear come audit time.
Absolutely! For example, we provide hourly, interim HR services for those times when your HR professional leaves unexpectedly. We also engage with our clients to deliver strategic HR projects such as performance management program design, leadership development, etc.
Take a deep breath—that’s why we’re here! We can help you identify which services you require right now, establish a timeline and checklist for future needs, and walk with you throughout the entire lifespan of your business. We can even help you hire an in-house HR team if you decide to cross that bridge.
We provide a blended on-site and remote support system. Depending on your location and your customized services package, HR Collaborative will provide an on-site resource to build rapport with your company while our remote team will act as the primary executor of your HR solutions.
Our HR menu, so to speak, includes the following: payroll, benefit strategy and administration, employee onboarding, safety program development, incentive and compensation planning, employee communications, employee attitude surveys, succession planning, HRIS software implementation, legal compliance, performance management, supervisor training, employee relations management, employee event planning, leadership development, merger and acquisition integration, and search management. We price competitively and offer clear proposals prior to beginning any work.
We can walk with you through the entire search and hiring process. HR Collaborative will help you determine the gaps in your staff, create job descriptions, recruit viable candidates, draft offer letters, map out compensation plans, and conduct background checks. We will search for the perfect fit for as long as it takes, and we’ll only charge you once the hire has been made.
That’s funny. We’re an HR company, so we would never discriminate! And we highly value diversity of thought and experience in the workplace. But HR generally seems to attract women, and our progressive policies toward flexibility of place and work-life blending is a natural fit for people with primary obligations to their families. Our first priority is to hire experienced professionals who understand how to support a dynamic, growing business. We’re more concerned with talent and skills than with gender.
