What our clients say

Laura Zaloga, Sr HR Generalist, Natural Choice Foods

If you have any HR consulting needs, HR Collaborative is a wonderful resource! I recently worked with HRC on a compensation planning project for my company and Lisa was great to work with!

She was very detailed in her research and when presenting us with the information, and also answered questions regarding the software and tools she used in the process. I especially appreciate how open she was/is to sharing her knowledge. Highly recommend working with the team at HRC!
