I started my HR career as an accountant. Yes, you read that right. Because of my knack for HR, my role gradually transitioned to full-time HR Manager and eventually HR Director. Over the years, I took on additional HR roles in other companies, leaving accounting behind completely.
I started helping small companies privately, guiding them through the complexities of HR based on my years of experience. I then realized that providing outsourced HR services is something that I am passionate about, so I decided to focus all my efforts on working with these smaller businesses.
I earned the nationally recognized SHRM-CP credential and founded Supportive HR. Since then I have continued to stay up to date on new developments and regularly participate in multiple forms of continuing education to ensure that my clients are getting the absolute best service available.
With my strong business background, easygoing nature, and solid understanding of the challenges faced by a wide variety of businesses and industries, I have successfully guided many businesses through a wide range of HR scenarios and challenges.
I would love to be able to help you, too! All you have to do is reach out, and I’ll come in and take over.Never worry about hr again!
I had the pleasure of working with Barry as part of ODA Primary Health Care Network's executive management team. Barry is a consummate Human Resources professional and manager, who is able to address complex issues in efficient and sensitive ways. Any organization would benefit from Barry's insight, vast knowledge, situational awareness, and kindness.
Barry is exactly the person you want for your Human Resources needs. While working together, he was tasked with creating his department from scratch. With precision, he was able to put together a comprehensive benefits package for all employees and new hires. This helped us attract and retain talent. He also navigated all our recruiting needs. Barry is always up to speed on the newest regulations, laws and best practices as he is constantly attending conferences and seminars to stay current. He has a great touch with difficult employee situations and also with upper management. Last compliment...he has a real knack for cultural diversity issues that can crop up in organizations. I hope to work with him again someday.
Working with Barry was an absolute pleasure. He really understood exactly what our needs were, and got it all done efficiently and professionally. We ended up with a fantastic outcome, and the timeline was quick. Highly recommended!
Barry is a consummate professional. His work product was delivered on-time and as required. He always makes himself available to answer questions and/or edit any necessary documents. I highly recommend Barry and would be happy to discuss his services with anybody who might need them.
Barry is an exceptional HR professional. As the HR director at ODA he always stood out as a very approachable and easy going person. He continuously went above and beyond for all ODA employees and didn’t stop until an issue was resolved or a solution discovered. Not only is Barry professional and easy to work with, his knowledge of HR goes well beyond your typical HR professional. I highly recommend him as your HR guru!
Barry has been extremely helpful with our HR process. He knows his beans and has helped navigate our when's and what's in the HR Dept. Barry is also very friendly and pleasant to talk to. Thanks Barry!
Barry helped us with patience, swiftness, and professionalism. He helped us create a robust employee handbook, with practices in place to keep the policies. He answered all of our questions and was a pleasure to work with!
