• Access leading HR experts for your organization on a fractional basis

What is Fractional HR?

Fractional HR provides your organization with access to human resources professionals and services without the need for someone in that role full-time.

Working with your team, we decide on the service level your organizations requires which will look different for every organization. This may be only a couple of hours of service per month, others may require several days - with the goal of ensuring you and your team have the support you need. 

Your assigned team will work with you to determine the right mix of onsite resources you need – but are always available to you when we aren't onsite at your office, because we know that HR issues can arise at any time.

What services does this include?

Any service that a traditional HR department would handle can be handled on a fractional basis.
