What is HR on Retainer?

HR on Retainer provides HR consulting services from knowledgeable, expert staff with years of industry experience, certified in their field of expertise.


Who is the Ideal HR on Retainer Client?

The short answer is: Anyone who employs people!

Small to midsize organizations often find themselves challenged with the cost of employing an HR individual and assign the typical responsibilities of the HR role to an existing employee in the organization’s leadership.  Where this becomes challenging is it not only impedes the employees’ time towards completing their primary function, it can have long term implications for the organization in the area of compliance.  

Outsourcing your HR – or at the very least having a certified HR partner in your pocket to call on – can be a more affordable, practical and safer approach.  The skillful and informed navigation of complex HR issues, and understanding of employment law, is an essential factor in the businesses bottom line.

For midsize to large organizations with an HR staff in place, HR on Retainer can be utilized to help supplement those teams when and where it’s needed, assisting with both employee relations and those HR projects that seem to keep being put on the backburner.
