Fractional HR 

Most start-ups and growth companies are focused on operations or growing the business. Economies of scale mean those organizations often lack an internal HR resource, and while there may be some HR needs, it’s not enough for a full-time hire.

HRaaS (HR as a Service) or Fractional HR is the perfect solution. We can provide you with a dedicated, HR Pro that is specific to your needs.  This may include oversight of the day-to-day, ensuring compliance and even developing long-term strategies around culture and core values.

Interim HR Services

Nothing hits an organization quite as hard as when a key member of their leadership team leaves – even if it’s temporary. As we all know, it can take time to replace that person and for a key role like Human Resources, the impact on the business and employees can be significant.  

Engaging an interim HR leader offers the advantage of onboarding an experienced professional quickly. Our HR Consultants offer you the experience and know just how to plug in where needed, keeping the “wheels on the bus” or championing a new initiative.

HR Advisory

Sometimes, there just isn’t enough time to get it all done. We’ve all been there. You thought you had the bandwidth, but you really could use another set of hands – a temporary resource as opposed to a full-time hire. 

Whether you are a tech company founder or a CHRO, our HR Advisory Service is a great option to provide you with the support you need, from a trusted HR resource. Our Consultants can research compliance issues, benchmark comp & benefits, help strategize company cultural objectives, suggest how best to initiate a DE&I strategy, evaluate performance management tools – and a whole lot more. 

Project-Based HR Services

As companies grow, HR and People related needs expand and often become more complex. We can help with any HR-related projects, from employee handbook development to implementing a new Applicant Tracking or Performance Management System.  

Customized Employee Handbooks

An employee handbook is one of the most important communication tools between you and your employees. It can not only provide guidance to managers and set expectations for employees but can also keep you legally sound amid all of the various state and federal employment laws.

Let us customize or update your existing handbook. We’ll partner with you, learning your company’s values, culture, lingo, and operating tenants in order to weave those into your employee policies. The end result will be a legally compliant, unique playbook that supports your company’s goals and reflects your culture.

Human Resource Audits

With the significant changes in federal and state employment laws in recent years to internal transitions in your HR team or management, there are many reasons to conduct an HR audit.

We offer an unbiased review of your HR policies and practices across the entire employee lifecycle, providing a detailed audit report for your short and long-term HR strategy.

Workplace Investigations

When an employee files a claim of harassment within your organization, what steps do you take to resolve disputes and follow the guidelines of the law? We offer comprehensive, third-party workplace investigations that provide unbiased documentation and recommendations that allow your business to move forward.

Expanding into the US is a challenge for any non-US company. Teresa and her team helped us navigate the legal complexity so that we didn’t make time-consuming and costly mistakes while ensuring we remained an attractive option for employees in a very competitive job market.

Teresa oversaw all aspects of the HR function for our company, including benefits renewal, employee development, recruiting, and HR administration. She is extremely knowledgeable in each of these areas, and she was a valuable business partner during her engagement. Teresa is results-driven and thinks strategically about how to align talent and culture initiatives with the overall goals of the company. She is a pleasure to work with and goes above and beyond to meet client needs.

Highly Recommended: Excellent On-demand HR & Recruiting Services. My experiences working with Teresa and her team have been excellent. The combination of responsiveness, flexibility and willingness to work with me to solve my business challenges make Hire Ventures a terrific partner.
Companies that out-task specific functions like recruiting, HR Policy Management, HR System Administration, etc. are being very efficient by utilizing Hire Ventures to augment their own limited resources. Hire Venture members have helped so many businesses with this strategy, and I am pleased to provide this testimony about my own positive experience.

Tony PomplianoCEO, Anexio

I’ve always enjoyed working with the HireVentures team! They are able to act as an extension of our internal team and take on any task – big or small. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to work with them and are anxious to continue seeing how they’ll positively impact our business next!

Corey BerkeySHRM-SCP, VP HR at JazzHR

Teresa joined us on an interim basis to help us with all things HR and Talent Related. She came in at a critical time as we were going through Benefits re-enrollment, performance reviews, creating new HR/Finance policies, and hiring across the business. Her partnership with our Head of Finance improved many of our backend HR/Finance processes dramatically and her recruiting team helped improve our recruiting operations and enabled us to hire talent directly. We wouldn't be as well-positioned without all the efforts of Teresa and her team.
