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.

Mahyar is a researcher at heart and loves investigating the nuances of workplace relationships. His first taste of research was at a perceptual psychology lab investigating the recruitment process while studying Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour at McMaster University. He pursued his research interests by moving to Newfoundland to study leader-follower dynamics while becoming the first ever graduate of the Master of Science in Management (Human Resources & Organizational Behaviour specialization) program at Memorial University. While earning his Master’s degree, Mahyar also earned his CHRP, co-authored a publication on workplace deviant behaviours, and worked as a Research Manager to lead a project on workplace disability biases meant to inform provincial policy development.
Mahyar is driven to incorporate humanity into the research and development of best practices in any organizational role. Being a life long learner, Mahyar is always eager to learn new advances in HR research and how it can be meaningfully transferred into the workplace. In his free time, Mahyar enjoys attending HRPA networking events, pottery classes, and volunteering in the community as a Fencing Coach and a tutor at the Learning Disabilities Association.
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.
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!
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."
