We’re here to make HR easy and approachable, and to ensure that businesses, organizations, and not-for-profits of all sizes have access to the support they need when it matters most.

Do I Really Have to Deal With HR?

If you’re a smaller business or organization, it can often be tempting to put off dealing with “HR stuff” until you’re “big enough” for it to count. While it’s certainly understandable to feel a little overwhelmed by the prospect of adding more to your plate, the simple reality is: if you have employees and plan to continue growing/maintaining your business, you need HR now. Leaving HR on the back burner is one of the biggest mistakes owners make, and it often costs them far more in the long run when avoidable issues come to light. Simply put, if you’re on the fence about HR, don’t be. Contact our team and learn how we can help build an affordable, adjustable plan that incorporates your needs today, as well as in the future.

How Can an HR Partner Help You?

HR is about far more than hiring and firing, and healthy business owners understand that knowing how to build a strong foundation and culture is essential for retention, liability protection, and long-term sustainable growth. At Pivot HR, we’re happy to help our clients with a wide range of HR matters including leadership coaching, business restructuring, process development, rewards and compensation, HR audits and more. No matter what size you are today, and where you want to go in the future, you’ll have our help with:


HR is an incredibly broad field, and employment regulations as well as societal expectations in the workforce are undergoing a period of rapid change. Partnering with an experienced HR consultancy removes ambiguity and empowers you to move forward with plans that you know you can trust to perform as needed. Best of all, having a dedicated partner means that you don’t have to wait for advice when matters arise; you’ll always have a knowledgeable professional to consult with just a phone call away. This translates to less time handling issues and more time left to focus on running your business!


As we mentioned above, employment law is far from stagnating. Businesses and organizations often struggle to stay on top of evolving regional and federal legislation, and failing to implement changes can lead to costly mistakes that you discover at the worst possible time. Working with a team like Pivot means you’ll always be able to put your best foot forward and know that your policies, practices, and contracts are on the up and up where the law is concerned.

Growth and Development

If you’re looking to supercharge your performance and aggressively target growth in the coming calendar year, it’s time to start investing in your team now. Top leaders know that learning and developing new skills is essential for sustainable growth, as well as retention of top talent. From process audits and drafting new policies, onboarding new department members and creating structural frameworks that give you a clear direction forward, we’ve got you covered.

Issue Resolution

While your approach to HR should be as proactive as possible, the reality is, you will eventually run into points of conflict and workplace issues that need to be resolved as efficiently and ethically as possible. Having trained HR consultants on hand make it easier to navigate conflict-based issues like workplace investigations, addressing bullying and harassment, correctly handling employee terminations and more.
