HR Alliance offers services in three general categories:  Outsourcing, Leadership Development, and Outplacement.  Within each of those categories, there are specific programs and processes provided.


Assessing small business HR infrastructures, executing the detailed implementation of employee handbooks, position descriptions, customized “ghost writing,” and consultation regarding employee-related issues are among those services offered by HR Alliance.

Leadership Development

HR Alliance assists organizations by training leaders and prospective leaders to become more effective in their role.   Leadership development can be offered in-house, at external venues, and workshops open to the business community.

Programs are individually designed to meet the needs of the audience and complement the culture of the organization.  General topics include subject-matter such as change management, team building, understanding dimensions in communication and leadership effectiveness, and customer service, for example.


HR Alliance provides an avenue through which individuals can work through career transitions positively and productively.  Typically underwritten by companies as part of a severance agreement, HR Alliance assists candidates in developing / updating their resume and corresponding documentation, understanding the benefits of a personal network, and preparing for the interview process.

…And More

The depth and breadth of services HR Alliance provides is enhanced due to talented affiliate consultants in Virginia, North Carolina and New York who offer programs on local, state, regional, and national platforms.  Through this network of seasoned experts in their respective fields, HR Alliance is able to offer a comprehensive array of human resource services.
