At HR Off-Site, we understand that not every business needs an experienced human resources professional on staff full-time. We offer employers an affordable alternative: consulting services by well qualified and highly experienced human resources professionals.

HR Off-Site consultants combine their expertise to create practical solutions designed to meet the specific requirements of your business. The solutions we propose typically relate to simplified strategic planning, leadership development,  hiring or managing staff; terminations and layoffs, protecting employer interests, and improving workplace dynamics.
