Startup Business Hiring and Building a Basic HR Platform

Whether you are an entrepreneur and are starting a business and plan to have a couple of people or more working for you, or you are a small division of a larger company, you may need Human Resources Consulting expertise.

In addition to requiring the entire suite of Human Resources Services available to all companies, Start-up Companies have unique needs. They include:

  • Overall Human Resources Plan and Policies
  • Staffing and Hiring Plan to be implemented in stages
  • Compensation Plan
  • Start Ups Coaching in best HR Practices for Entrepreneurs


Do you look like a small business, but in fact:

Is your business actually a division of a larger company?

Is the parent company Canadian or International in origin?

Do you need to migrate existing corporate policy and adapt it for Ontario?

Understanding legal or cultural differences can speed your start-up and generate profits faster.
