We understand small business.

We formed SHRP to meet the needs of small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s) from the very beginning. Our practice has grown to include several municipalities, townships, professional practices, not-for-profits, manufacturers and others. SME’s remain our focus.

We tackle tough issues.

Managing people can been tricky. That’s why we’re well equipped with the expertise and resources to tackle HR challenges as organizations and workforces grow. We can confidently say we’re often engaged to deal with complex issues in the workplace that others have been unable to resolve.

Our clients are at the heart of everything we do.

Lots of organizations say that, but we’re always checking in to thoroughly understand your needs to build better outcomes. We understand that a strong commitment to service is vital to your success, and this belief permeates everything we do. That’s the SHRP way.

We help clients stay on top of changing compliance regulations.

Every day there seems to be a diverse range of compliance issues and risk factors that organizations have to face. We support our clients with all their compliance needs and help them take a more hands-on approach to managing risk. Meeting compliance obligations isn’t easy to do on your own. That’s why we’re here to handle the required policies, postings, training modules and documentation mandated by government policies and regulations.

We free people’s time to be great at work.

It’s no secret: the happier your employees, the more successful your business. Giving HR the tools to build and retain a positive workplace experience gives employees freedom to do the work that matters most. When employees can collaborate, create, engage and be productive, they feel valued as a team member—not just a cog in the machine. Our suite of HR services, including HRLive, can help you do just that.
