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.

Ann Wooley, VP of HR, National Flavors

I worked with HR Collaborative to recruit an HR Generalist to join my growing organization. The HR Collaborative team did a great job of identifying viable candidates that met the skill-set I was targeting.

They were extremely professional, listened to identify the right candidate pool that would align with our culture, provided the appropriate level of follow-up, friendly, and easy to do business with. I was able to fill my position quickly with the right candidate for our organization.

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.

Frequently asked questions

Who are your flexible HR professionals?

Our flexible HR professionals are a vetted team of seasoned HR practitioners who prefer assignment and project-based work or who are looking for a potential, permanent placement.

We refer to them as "HR Flex Professionals."

Our team of HR Flex Professionals has a wide range of expertise at all levels (from HR Administrator to CHRO). They are at the ready to take on new assignments, so we can match you with the talent you need when you need it.

Each Flex Pro receives full support from HR Collaborative allowing them to address any challenge that may arise.

While on assignment, each Pro's goal is to become an extension of your team.

What if I'm unsure about what kind of help I need?

Our talent placement team leverages our HR expertise and partnership experience to get a snapshot of your needs and select an individual whose flexibility, areas of expertise, and goals align with yours.

How do I know I'm getting the right resource or person for my needs?

You will be included in the selection process! In the first steps of our process, we will assess what your needs are and pick a variety of vetted professionals whose expertise matches your situation. You will have a chance to speak to the individual to make sure they are the right fit prior to committing.

What if I'm unsure I can commit to the same number of hours each week?

Our HR professionals are a flexible resource. Once your Pro starts, you are in full control of their schedule. We will help you establish agreed-upon availability and estimated hours, but if changes are needed, you and your Pro can talk through them as your partnership continues.

How does billing work?

You will be billed at an hourly rate and will receive an invoice weekly. Prior to invoicing, our Invoicing Team will send you an email requesting approval of the hours your Pro recorded for the week.

What if I want to hire my Flex Pro permanently?

Our matchmaking services are so good, you may never want them to leave! It isn't unusual for our stop-gap resource to become a client's permanent solution.

More than 30% of our Pros have been hired by our clients.

We use a sliding scale conversion fee chart based on how long your Pro has been working with you. It's a low-risk, "hire" return!
