Customized Human Resource Solutions for Businesses & Not for Profits
What We Do
My HR Department handles your day-to-day human resources matters. Our senior business consultants can work on-demand at a fraction of the cost of either hiring a full-time executive-level general human resource professional or relying on a PEO or Payroll Company’s stable of random human resources professionals available through a call-in service. Clients typically develop a working relationship with one My HR Department consultant through regular in-person meetings but have the benefit of access to the whole team for specific expertise.
My HR Department Consultants are available to work on-site at your location, allowing us to develop intimate knowledge of your business, establish trust relationships with key individuals, and to become a trusted advisor for your management team.
My HR Department is an innovative approach to human resources services for growing and mature businesses and organizations. We are a team of senior human resource professionals with substantial in-house experience in all areas of human resources. Companies and organizations who engage My HR Department fall into two main categories: (1) those without in-house human resource professionals who need regular, on-going human resources support but do not wish to hire a full-time in-house HR Executive, and (2) those with in-house human resource professionals who do not wish to add more full-time resources to their existing in-house staff.
My HR Department structures client relationships in a flexible manner, to create the best fit for the companies we serve. Generally, for clients with no pre-arranged time commitment seeking human resource professional services on a purely on-demand basis, My HR Department uses a pay- as- you- go hourly rate. And we are always happy to supply hard estimates for specific projects, allowing you to budget and plan appropriately.
For clients who wish to have My HR Department act as de facto human resource department, with the consultant dedicating several days per week to the client, we often agree on a negotiated weekly or monthly rate. And at an agreed upon number of days per week, our rates are one-third to one-half of the cost of hiring a full-time human resource professionals.
For Companies and Organizations with In-house HR
When your in-house human resources team becomes stretched too thin because of new compliance obligations, or because the business is growing beyond your existing capacity, turn to My HR Department. We provide senior business consultants with substantial in-house experience to handle your overflow work on an as-needed basis. You can hire us to be on site regularly, as a part-time extension of your in-house team, or you can count on us to help sporadically, at busier times such as the end of the quarter, or when other projects have stretched your internal resources.
Each My HR Department consultant has been carefully screened for professional competence and for their desire to be a part of the My HR Department team for the long term. It is our desire to make client relationships last, minimizing the costs of training and turnover.
Outside HR Services on a Part-Time Basis
We believe that an experienced Human Resources professional should be a key business advisor, not just an HR technician. My HR Department consultants have been senior executives at companies and nonprofits, giving us the experience to provide a business-focused and practical approach to problem solving. We use our considerable experience to provide our clients with proactive human resources management, helping avoid problems before they arise.
We help growing companies and organizations…
- Align human resources with the overall business or organizational strategy
- Ensure compliance with Federal, State and Local laws
- Identify and creatively solve people management issues
- Avoid the financial burden of full-time human resources staff
