Our Approach

Our interim and virtual HR services are built around your organization’s strategy. We help identify gaps and opportunities in your people strategy that can help propel your business results and maximize the output of your people and culture capabilities. Then we lean in to help implement them with proven and pragmatic HR supports.

With interim management, our team steps in on a part- or full-time basis to provide HR leadership in key functional areas. Acting as a member of your team, we assume responsibility for results — and lay the foundation for a successful transition to permanent staff. 

With virtual management, our team of experts can be retained for as little as a day or two at a time, acting as your virtual HR department or team member. Your work gets performed cost-effectively by strategic and operational HR experts but without the overhead of employing permanent staff.

"As we began to expand our operations and bring on more people, we managed HR and did the right things to be a good employer, but we didn’t have a specific people strategy. We realized that we needed to be more thoughtful about it, but as a relatively small organization, we required some professional external support...From the very outset of our engagement, Laura has taken charge to shape our idealistic view of what our people-first strategy should be and put it into practice. She is part of the team now and has done an amazing job fitting in as a coach and mentor to our people."
