Book a Free Call

HR training is a must in any organization as it grows. This is particularly true for small businesses - where HR often ends up as an afterthought.

Small businesses face unique challenges, including limited resources and bandwidth for existing employees to take on new responsibilities. That is why we offer several different ways we can work together to ease the burden of human resources support in your organization. 

At Expedition HR, we specialize in HR training for small business. We provide businesses with the tools, support, and resources to set up a strong human resources foundation and ongoing support. 

As our client Laura says, "Expedition HR's support is like having an HR safety net."

Even if you have ongoing HR support (which our HR Subscription Service provides), you may still need help building your HR knowledge base and if so, our HR Jumpstart may be just what you are looking for!

As one HR Jumpstart training client shared...

"We love the methodical, yet approachable and realistic method that Expedition HR used to get us on the right track."

-Laurie, Executive Director, Non-Profit organization

Who is the HR Jumpstart Training Program for? 

The HR Jumpstart Program is for businesses who are ready and eager to put an HR foundation into place. Ideal businesses to join the HR Jumpstart are businesses who either have employees or who are just starting out but plan on hiring employees.

Who should participate in the Jumpstart training?

The person or people who will be administering the human resources function within the business are those most suitable to go through the HR Jumpstart, such as:

  • An inexperienced HR employee (or HR team) who needs training
  • Office/Admin staff person who handles human resources administration
  • Operations Manager, COO, or CEO (these higher level roles sometimes participate in the HR Jumpstart in smaller organizations, along with whoever will be administering the human resources function, per above bullets)

We can help you determine who makes sense to go through the program based on the size of your organization. We can also help determine if it makes sense for you to hire an administrative employee to handle HR tasks and who will go through the HR Jumpstart program. (We allow for up to 3 people per organization to attend the Jumpstart HR trainings for no added cost.)

What specific outcomes can you expect from the HR Jumpstart Program?

  • Solid HR foundation in your business
  • HR Generalist-level knowledge for those who attend all the trainings
  • Peace of mind knowing you have laid the HR foundation to prevent sticky situations and that you have a solid plan of action moving forward

"I was ready to hire my first full-time employees and needed guidance and resources. The team helped me get foundational HR pieces in place, including recruiting and onboarding processes and performance management systems. Expedition HR's services helped alleviate my stress and build my confidence. Plus, Jill is super communicative, and I always received a quick response to questions. I highly recommend Expedition HR to other small business owners!
