To achieve the growth and impact a business needs to be successful, it needs exceptional Talent strategy and management. As a fractional HR lead, my job is to solve for your biggest pain points. From being the first stop for employees, to recruiting and onboarding the right talent, to compensation modeling, I am uniquely positioned to help build an extraordinary employment brand.

Having worn many hats in my career, I’m acutely in tune with what it takes to make a great culture thrive. As a former practitioner, manager, department leader, and agency leader, I know that it’s the people who make a business successful. Whether it’s a human-first employee relations philosophy to navigating change management, every company needs a leader who can solve across all facets of an organization.

I am in a unique position to solve not only HR problems but operational and cultural, and strategic concerns across an organization.

Why Fractional? Top 3 advantages

1. Frees up internal resources:    This is a flexible and adaptable relationship to support your growing company’s unique needs. A Fractional leader is an embedded team member and helper, not a consultant. They fit into your company culture and are invested in your success. At some point, a founding leadership team starts spending too much time IN the business and not enough time ON the business. Bring someone with experience and skill so you can focus on growing your business.  
2. Leverage experience and wisdom:    Hiring Fractional means you get an experienced and fully trained contributor who is bringing a fresh set of eyes to your company. They can provide you with objective feedback and fresh ideas to unlock even more from your business.  
3. Cost-effective:    Carve out a mission and scope that creates immediate measurable value to the business – without a full-time salary and health benefits, vacation, etc. costs. You pay for impact on the business and avoid the cost of full-time staff. When you have the right people in the right seats, you get more done with your resources.
