HR Collaborative Brings Flexible HR Talent Solution to Metro Detroit

HR Collaborative Brings Flexible HR Talent Solution to Metro Detroit

The pandemic has changed how we work. In response, we here at HR Collaborative are working to change how HR works.

Over the past three years, we’ve iterated on an interim HR service model that provides employers HR experts they can integrate onto their team when, where, and for however long they need them.

COVID has only accelerated the need for this model. And, consequently, our development of it.

And now, we’re excited to announce that we are officially expanding this service to Metro Detroit.

On-Demand Talent

More than 60 organizations in West Michigan have already tapped into the HR Collaborative flex talent network to:

  • Augment their people operations. Whether it’s bringing on an extra recruiter during a heavy hiring season or a benefits specialist ahead of open enrollment or a generalist to temporarily increase overall capacity.
  • Fill temporary personnel gaps. Upcoming parental or medical leave? Or an unexpected turnover on the team? No worries. There’s an HR flex professional ready to provide a much needed stop-gap.
  • Kick-off their HR.¬†Building an HR function without experience in HR can be overwhelming. Embedding an expert into your operations and culture makes laying a solid foundation easy.

Resilience Through Flexibility

This past year, many HR teams have been overwhelmed trying to keep up with pivots and mandates. And many HR professionals have struggled to maintain 9-5, M-F schedules as the pandemic reshaped demands at home.

Our flexible HR talent offers the best of both worlds.

By leveraging resources that seamlessly move on and off their team, HR leaders can keep pace with their organization’s needs. And by having more control over where and when they work, HR professionals can better balance their work and life.

A Partnership, Not a Platform

Unlike gig platforms, we work with both employers and professionals to find the right fit. The matchmaking process is so effective, more than 30% of clients hire their flexible HR professional permanently

For HR professionals, joining our talent network offers both flexibility and extensive support. They receive assignment pay weekly, have access to top-tier HR tools, and are part of a community of experts.

Our mission is to disrupt the gig conversation for HR. We are dedicated to building a community of collaborators that provides employers and HR professionals the flexibility and stability needed to stay agile in today’s world of work.

Coming to Metro Detroit

We’ve already begun expanding our interim HR services to the east side of the state. Last year, we provided more than 2,500 hours of flex HR to organizations in the region.

But now, as demand has increased, we’re making the expansion a priority for the organization.

Our founder, Beth Kelly, is excited about focusing on growing HR Collaborative’s flex talent network into SE Michigan.

“I’m so grateful we’re able to offer this opportunity to Metro Detroit. COVID has placed incredible pressure on local businesses and the local HR professional community, especially working parents. Our talent network offers a sustainable solution for both when they need it most,” said Kelly.
