You're busy running your business.

Really busy.
You have deadlines and customer demands that consume all your available time and as your business grows,
your employee challenges seem to be multiplying. Now there are problems with hiring, plus performance issues.
You’re not sure how to retain employees or even keep them happy, much less develop a fully-engaged and productive workforce.
It feels like you’re putting out fires, rather than being intentional and focused on employee management.
You know you need to develop and train your employees, but you're not sure where to start.

We're HR experts and we can help.

We work with small business owners and managers
on creating compliant human resources functions,
solving day-to-day employee problems,
providing interactive training solutions and
giving you peace of mind.

Work with us!

When you take care of your employees, they take care of your clients.

We know that employee situations are unique and can’t be solved with cookie-cutter solutions. Our in-depth and extensive experience allows us to advise and guide you to the best possible solution for your individual workplace.

Not every organization has the luxury of a fully staffed, in-house human resources department, but every organization has HR responsibilities. And mistakes in those areas can be time consuming and expensive. But here’s a secret: you can easily avoid them by taking proactive steps. We can get your organization on the right track.

It takes a village to raise a business and we’re here to help you. Let’s get started…

Why work with us?

Our boutique HR consultancy is intentionally small to focus on you. We are able to be exceptionally responsive to your unique HR needs. We work with a limited number of clients each year so you never have to worry about feeling like just another client in a crowded room.

Our greatest strengths are the ability to listen and understand your specific employee problems and to create a tailored approach that addresses the unique situation your business is facing. We are solution and results-oriented.

We also save you time and money. You can hire HR Answerbox for a fraction of the cost of an in-house HR department, but you’ll still receive the expertise you need, when you need it.

We look forward to the opportunity to help you solve your toughest employee challenges.

    “Amanda Haddaway was extremely instrumental in helping our organization meet our training objectives for the year. She listened to our goals and needs, then developed custom training materials that included real-world examples relevant to our company and employees. The training sessions mixed role-playing and activities that effectively demonstrated the information being covered. Our employees really felt that Amanda was an expert in the topic areas being taught and most of all, the sessions were fun and informative! We’ll be looking for Amanda’s guidance to help us achieve next year’s goals as well!” – Julie McGoldrick, PHR, HR Manager for Resonate

What we offer

HR consulting and strategy development

We work with you as a strategic partner to guide and advise you on important HR and human capital management initiatives.

Human resources projects aren’t always at the top of everyone’s list, especially when there needs to be a focus on building your business and meeting customer demands, but HR mistakes can be costly and time consuming.

Some estimates show that business owners without an HR professional spend up to 30 percent of their time on HR tasks. With our help, you can better leverage your time on income-generating activities.

You know your business and we know HR. Let’s work together.

Other products and services:

Employee and management training

It’s not about training, it’s about results. Quite simply, workforce development is a great investment for your organization.

The business case for employee training is easy: If your employees are well trained and generally happy, they will be more engaged and committed to their work. This equals more productivity and that impacts your bottom line. We call that a win for your employees and for your business.

We are miles apart from the dreaded death by PowerPoint. In fact, our sessions are fun, interactive and engaging. Our goal is always to cover the key content, but we do it in a way that allows attendees to participate during the session and leave with ideas they can implement back on the job.
