Finding the right talent is tough these days-Solve HR helped us come up with a plan for those hard-to-fill positions, and helped us improve our retention so we need to hire less often.

Kelly is a talented HR professional with deep expertise in HR and employment law. Kelly is quick learner and immediately jumps in with an open mind to understand the culture and work environment of each unique client. I had the pleasure of partnering with Kelly on a very complex client engagement with a multitude of compliance projects. Kelly was extremely organized with excellent project management skills. I strongly recommend Kelly and Solve HR!
