An HR Expert at Work

Have an HR Question? Your HR Expert Will Have the Answer.

What is an HR Expert on Retainer?

An HR Expert on Retainer (XOR) from HR Collaborative is your go-to strategic resource for dialoguing about people issues, mentoring in-house HR talent, counseling on employee relations, auditing of policies and procedures, and so much more.

Who is XOR ideal for?

XOR is well suited for organizations with an HR department of one or where the HR function is managed by Finance, an Executive Director/President, or the Owner of an organization. Your HR Expert provides behind-the-scenes strategic advice and counsel.

Who will be my HR Expert?

All of our Expert on Retainer engagements come with, well...experts. Your dedicated Business Partner will have at least 7 years of experience in the HR Manager seat, partnering with business leaders to drive everything from the tactical to the transformational. Each of our Experts has put out their fair share of 4 pm Friday fires, launched more initiatives than they can count, and grown companies' HR function.
