If you’re dealing with a current challenge or situation, we can help you through it. If everything is running smoothly, we can help you keep that momentum going. If you’re looking for an HR partner to call on when you need it, we can give you that peace of mind.
We want to help create a strong community. We do that by working with small business owners and organizations. When small businesses and entrepreneurs succeed, our community succeeds. We work with you to teach you how to work through the complexities of human resources and set you up to grow and develop your organization and the people in it.
We see you as an individual running a business, and through innovation we fill the gap between affordable, efficient online and virtual HR support with face-to-face, unique, tailored service that saves you time and money. We understand the community you work in because we live here too!
We are covered by professional liability insurance as HR professionals.
We strive to inspire and motivate individuals to reach their unique maximum potential and value.
We volunteer and live in the community that you do business in and we want to see you succeed. We continuously develop ourselves as HR professionals and learn how to solve the problems that small businesses and organizations come across so we can share it with you. We strive to serve every client with unique and innovative solutions that allow you to get back to working in your organization. Your business isn't HR, ours is!
Our company is built on 3 pillars and we are committed to these in everything we do:

Our commitment to a successful community means that we want to see others succeed. We will always give potential clients a list of other resources that might need your needs, even if it means we aren't the final choice in the end. Our competitors are our collaborators and we are open to partnering with other organizations and professionals in order to provide the best solution for you.
The snowy owl is a source of guidance, wisdom, knowledge, and insight. Its flight is silent and graceful, yet the owl is powerful and precise. Seeing a snowy owl is a sign that marks the end of something, but that “something” could be a difficult time. The snowy owl carries messages across planes that cannot otherwise communicate with each other. It is a bird found in every Canadian province and territory.
We see HR as being similar to the snowy owl. It is guidance, knowledge and insight. It is often practiced behind closed doors to respect privacy and confidentiality, yet HR is a powerful force that drives an organizational culture. Popular culture sometimes tells us to fear the HR meeting, but more often than not, we’re bringing about an end to something that only makes the organization stronger! Often, the solution is better communication, where two sides did not understand each other.
The personal inspiration is personified by the stuffed toy, named "Hoot hoot."
