About HR Strategies International

At HRSI we partner with our non-profit clients to ensure their success by supporting the development, growth, and change in the way they hire, reward, compensate, teach, and retain their employees. On behalf of our Non-Profit and Social Sector clients, we develop strategic human resource and interim executive leadership solutions to ensure the success of our clients as they build sustainable models that support meeting their missions. Here’s how:

• Serving as Interim Executive Director to stabilize an organization and assess, recruit and onboard the next executive leader -
• Leading Recruiting and Executive Searches by offering customized search solutions dependent on client need and budget considerations.
• Supporting our nonprofit clients who are too small to have on-staff HR expertise but value our strategic support of their teams
• Developing strategic and business plans collaboratively with diverse stakeholders including board of directors, administrators and staff
• We work with senior leadership teams to design and execute organization-wide efforts that increase overall health, effectiveness, and respond to changes in the external environment

After 17 years of continuous service, we are proud of our unique combination of human resources skills and competency, along with our leadership background, supporting and running non-profits. We believe our experience positions HRSI to serve our clients in a wide variety of different ways. We specialize in working with small and mid-sized non-profit clients ($1M - $20M).

We look forward to learning more about how we can best support your organization.
