Delivering Flexible Human Resources Solutions

Organizations seeking comprehensive human resources support, especially in the absence of in-house talent, pursued a trusted partner to outsource HR strategy, process improvements, and general activities.


Companies often focus on running the day-to-day business — when HR needs arise, there is often little to no internal team bench strength to lead and execute a variety of strategies to support employee success. Adding the prohibitive fixed overhead cost is typically not the right place to start.


Compass Human Resourced® is an outsourcing solution providing clients with the benefits of an elite HR department without adding fixed cost. Compass flexes with needs and budget, offering onsite and virtual support, complete outsourcing or additional bandwidth to complement an existing HR team, and specialized expertise or a third-party perspective. Compass has set up brand new organizations and addressed significant changes for long-tenured companies. We first assess the current employee experience, listen to stakeholders to understand strengths and development needs, and deliver an HR Roadmap noting strategies and tactics to ensure a compliant foundation and engaged workforce.
