LAUNCH Human Resources

LHR is geared to provide the same HR resources and strategic, value-added collaboration found in much larger companies, without adding headcount or the costs and logistics of a dedicated Human Resources department.   HR is our only focus, and each member of our team packs decades of hands-on, real-life, HR experience from a broad range of markets, industries and organizations.
The result is that we can offer cost effective partnership that allows the business principals, owners, and leadership teams to focus more time running their business and less time burdened with the administrative complexities of HR compliance.   Those same business stakeholders will also gain peace of mind knowing that their business is fully prepared to meet the requirements of federal and state HR audits or investigations.
The financial impact of a single successful audit or investigation can save a company tens of thousands of dollars at a basic level and up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines, taxes, and penalties when more complex issues have been successfully addressed in advance.
