Our Clients

We've been honored to work with many amazing organizations. Here are just a few.

Jodi Ross, Director of HR, American Seating
I can’t express what an incredible asset our HR Flex Pro, Laurel, has been to our team and me. She has embraced the role, made improvements, and has been so well received by so many. She is smart, organized, eager, pleasant, and the list goes on. It’s been such a pleasure working with her, and I've appreciated having her here.

Nate Koetje, CEO, Feyen Zylstra

HRC was a good fit for us because they hit the ground running. I found their process to be complete and well-thought-out.  What I appreciated is their willingness to look at what our expectations were and what we needed for our business, versus them telling me what I needed.

Beverly Grant, Interim CEO, D.A. Blodgett - St. John's

It was an absolute pleasure working with HR Collaborative! They were top-notch from the beginning to the end of our relationship. The process our agency experienced was thorough, comprehensive, and allowed for HR visioning and possibilities of our agency to be realized. I would recommend HRC for all your human resource needs. Thank you, HRC!

Michael Kunzler, Managing Partner, The C2 Group

We've had a handful of thorny situations arising out of the COVID-19 mess, and [Stephanie] handled each with grace and urgency. She's teaching our team how to apply HR best practices and she's making a big difference. We're grateful for her focus and hard work.

Associate VP for HR, Grand Valley State University

In the changing landscape of Human Resources in higher education, HR Collaborative has helped GVSU HR respond to the changing talent demands of the institution. I view the HR Collaborative team as an extension of my HR team. With their expertise, high level of responsiveness, and professionalism, they help me extend the impact of what human resources can deliver to the community.
