No dedicated HR

No HR? No problem. Building HR functions from the ground-up is our specialty.

For new businesses, we will build your entire HR infrastructure in a matter of weeks – providing tailored documents and processes, implementing technology solutions, delivering engaging trainings – even recruiting your opening team.

For existing businesses, we will investigate your current HR resources and practices, identify gaps, and implement a leading HR structure that reflects your unique culture.

Thank goodness for Empowered Hospitality. It's reassuring to know that they’re on top of our HR—from small staff issues to bigger things like labor department procedural changes.
