Companies face increasing challenges trying to understand and stay current on the ever-changing legislative requirements, especially as we are all navigating through a pandemic. Even at the best of times, the world of HR can sometimes be overwhelming and difficult to navigate on your own but knowing where to start is half the battle!
Developing and executing your HR Fundamentals lays the critical foundation you need to establish the building blocks required to successfully scale your business. As a first step, priority items include defining your workplace culture and understanding your compliance obligations so that you implement the policies that are right for your business.

She is there to listen, listen some more, and keep looking until she understands the underlying issues and where to start finding key solutions no matter the simplicity or complexity at hand.

It is within these deliverables that Andrea is able to increase production, increase profit and mitigate risk, in turn saving companies substantial sums of money with minimal upfront cost. Improving both sides of the business – profitability and the happiness of employees – is what gets Andrea up in the morning; she loves that every day she is changing lives.
