Our Core Values

  • We build personal relationships with our clients.
    We become part of the organizations we serve. We attend staff meetings. We answer an employee’s calls. We go to the client Christmas parties and summer picnics. We don’t just know their HR. We know their business goals and aspirations, fears and concerns. We believe that HR should complement and enhance the business, not be a necessary evil that is pushed to the corner of the operation. We have relationships that go beyond the transactions and become transformational.
  • We collaborate with each other.
    It’s part of our company name and part of our fabric. No one of us alone can serve the client as well as all of us together can. Every client has at least two people at HR Collaborative that they can contact directly about their services with us. When any client needs even more expertise than those two people offer, we bring in an expert in search, compensation or in leadership development. As talented as each one of us is alone, we succeed because each person builds on the strengths of others to accomplish the goal for the organization.
  • We pitch in to help.
    Whether it’s analyzing a client discovery or emptying the dishwasher; if it needs to be done, we’re all hands-on deck. From generating candidates for open positions to cleaning up employee files, everyone pitches in to help get the job done. We work together as a team.
  • We're worthy of trust.
    We all aspire to have relationships built on trust. But as easy as it is to say, it’s really hard to do. How do you become worthy of trust? In this organization, we operate with integrity. We honor our promises and commitments to the client and to each other. If we truly can’t deliver, we own it, confess it, and work to find a better solution.
  • We are people promoters.
    We lift each other up and help everyone to be successful. If there’s a problem or a mistake, we don’t point fingers or place blame. Instead, we look for a way to fix it, and to make sure it doesn’t happen again. If someone needs a new skill or ability to do a job, we help them learn it. We invest in professional development and encourage learning. We support each other in our journey of professional growth and success.
  • We do it right.
    Every person at HR Collaborative does a little extra to add value to our clients' services. Our clients are often delighted that we provide a fully-facilitated approach to search, or a comprehensive discovery of their organization. They don’t expect such a high level of service. But, because we know them personally, and because we work collaboratively, we are able to offer an even better solution than any client would expect.
