A start-up gets a taste of HR expertise

Salo Expert™ matches senior experts in finance, accounting, and HR with organizations that need their help. Together, they tackle tough challenges, clean up messes, make strategic breakthroughs, and help every client get ahead.    


When a food blog side-gig turned into a thriving full-time business, the company had no in-house HR expertise. They needed help from an HR expert and were looking for someone to assess their current HR processes, identify gaps, outline new processes, and develop a new hire process.


The Salo expert consultant chosen for this project had more than 20 years of HR experience. She also had significant background in the food industry and small business HR needs. She worked 100% remotely like all of the other employees at the client organization.


By working with Salo, the client has a trusted, on-call HR resource to assist their business and employees with HR-related questions on a fractional basis. The Salo consultant continues to work with the client, providing recommendations on a variety of HR questions, processes, and programs.
