HR Solutions to Prevent Problems, Protect your Profits, and Grow your Company. http://peopletactics.com
My name is Jennifer Brown, the founder of PeopleTactics LLC, and I'm devoted to helping small business owners implement solutions to prevent Human Resources problems that drain them of their time, money, and energy. I work with small businesses in order to help them build stronger employee relationships, understand and comply with employment laws, establish policies, and set up easy-to-use HR systems to consistently avoid problems.
Many people have asked me how I came to be an “HR Expert for Small Businesses.” It’s a question that I had to think about, as it wasn’t exactly the path I had set out on originally. In January 2002, I decided to leave my high-paying Human Resources position in a Fortune 500 company. This was a position I had been working towards since a very young age. When I was five years old, I decided that I wanted to be a “business woman.” Everything I had done professionally up to this point had been focused on a senior executive HR career path in a big company. However, in the wake of 9/11 and with two small children, my goals had shifted. I knew I still wanted to work, but wanted to do it on my terms and with more flexibility.
So in June 2002, I left my position. In December 2002, I had my first client—a small business! Throughout my years of consulting, I started to notice that I was working more and more with small businesses and that I loved it! I truly enjoyed working with small business owners, getting to know them and their businesses, helping them overcome the unique HR challenges they face, and assisting them in establishing their HR practices and avoiding problems that could drain them of their energy and money. My work was incredibly rewarding, as I was making a difference in helping these owners have a successful business; it brought me great joy to watch their achievements. Therefore, I decided to dedicate my professional life to helping small business owners with their human resources practices.
