Human Resources Support

Stratford’s human resources is situated to assist companies of all sizes, within all industries, from start-up companies to history-laden businesses. We provide high quality HR custom packages, including services and advisory expertise to clients in all segments and industries. As a company grows, the HR function should also grow proportionately.  The level of expertise of a Human Resources department twenty or so years ago, does not parallel the expertise one would need today. There are many companies with 500 employees or less who are faced with laws that only existed in the last 10 or so years. We work with our clients to streamline these administrative functions so companies can focus on their overall business goals and objectives.
