3 Reasons to Contract with 501 Commons for HR Services

Posted Jun 24, 2019 10:27 AM
When you contract with us, you get just the amount of HR support you need (generally for $600-900 a month) from your HR Partner.
Here are three reasons to start a conversation with Matt Aspin at to discuss what an HR Partner can do for you:
  1. You need human resource expertise to comply with constantly changing employment laws.
  2. You need to recruit and hire the right people, have detailed onboarding procedures, and maintain fair and competitive compensation in order to manage staff turnover and organizational change.
  3. If cultivating an inclusive culture and a diverse staff is important to your organization’s contribution to a more equitable world, learn how to put detailed policies, practices, and actions behind those words.
Your HR consultant will get to know your organization and be available to help with important functions like recruitment and hiring, staff evaluations, staff orientation and training, succession planning, benefit decisions, and other day-to-day needs.

Amy Fulford, the interim executive director of Seattle International Film Festival, says SIFF was in need of navigating personnel issues and solidifying formal HR practices. She has glowing things to say about working with Heather, one of our new HR consultants:

“Heather has been an incredible resource for me. She is very knowledgeable and responsive,” Amy says. “She’s helping me navigate some complex employment issues with confidence and compassion. I’m so grateful for her help.”
