The success of your company is based on people and their interrelationships.

People always have untapped potential. Employees flourish in a strong culture.

Strategic changes within your company must be implemented on a person-oriented basis.

The success of the next stage of your company is being built now.

Strategic HR management is a competitive edge for your company.

The basis of a good HR operation is built at the initial stage of a company.

These are the principles in which we, at HR Plus, believe. We provide HR consultancy services for small, medium-size and large companies.  We have a particular focus on broad-based strategic change projects. We will help your company’s HR function become a strategic partner for you.

HR Plus was established in 2016. We are growing rapidly and have several projects underway alongside Finnish companies.

We provide HR consultancy for the four stages of a company’s business operations:

  1. The start-up stage, when your young and growth-oriented company begins to succeed
  2. The growth stage, when your company or business is growing rapidly
  3. The maturity stage, when the growth of your business has levelled off
  4. The exit stage, when your company or business is contracting and your company is focusing on new business areas

Various types of expertise and a range of strategic focuses are required from HR in each of these stages. We have expertise and experience of this kind. We have divided our services in line with the lifecycle of your company or business activities.
