Mid-sized Businesses with Small HR Team

When you think of mid-sized firms, think 100 to 1000 employees. These businesses run lean, with about one HR pro for every 100 people. It's all about balancing overheads.
We’ve been there. Having a fully staffed HR team doesn’t always mean the team has the capacity to get all the important things done. Sometimes, we need a little extra help. Sometimes, we need a lot of extra help.

Common HR Themes.

Here’s the deal: even a full HR team can be stretched thin. They’ve got the basics covered, sure. But the big-picture stuff? That’s where they struggle. Sometimes, they need an extra pair of hands. Sometimes, more.

Take strategic projects. They’re important, but often sidelined. Or maybe there’s a sudden gap in the team. That’s when temporary, flexible support is a game-changer. It could be filling an interim role, mentoring the solo HR folks, or boosting the team’s capacity to push those big initiatives forward.


It’s about enhancing what the internal HR team can do, making sure they’re not just keeping up, but leading the way in shaping the company’s direction.

How We Can Help.

Fractional Stacks. This is all about enhancing your HR game. In organizations with roughly one HR person per 100 employees, it’s tough to cover everything. Compensation, benefits, staffing, compliance – it’s a lot. That’s where we come in. Our team specializes in different HR areas, ready to support your in-house team. Say you’re acing hiring and pay, but staff aren’t sticking around. We’ll dive into employee engagement, performance management, and reward systems to keep your top talent happy.

Prepaid Hours. This is your HR flex plan. It’s perfect for organizations with 100+ employees facing complex HR challenges, including compliance and labor laws. With prepaid hours, you have our expertise at your fingertips, ready to tackle any HR area. It’s about having that extra support, precisely when and where you need it.

Projects. When you have a specific goal in mind, our projects are the answer. Maybe it’s updating your handbook for new labor laws, or conducting a compensation analysis to stay ahead in a growing organization. Our projects zero in on your desired outcome, fully customizable to fit your exact needs. They’re about getting results, tailored to your organization’s journey.

I’ve come to rely on Kathryn and Performentor’s ability to quickly assess situations and present a series of viable solutions to pick from. Unlike many subject matter experts, Kathryn has taken the time to learn our business from the plant-floor to the boardroom. Without exaggeration, I know that working with Performentor ties directly to our bottom-line performance.

If you are serious about strategically utilizing your people and culture to differentiate and grow your business, then I highly recommend Performentor. Alicia and her team have helped Chapel Hill Tire successfully create the systems and infrastructure to more fully develop our people to scale up our business AND more fully engage our team at the same time.

Marc Pons

As an executive in a small, venture-funded biotech firm, I appreciate the support we get from Alicia and Performentor as a sounding board for team relations, policy, and compliance. Having an expert in our corner who knows the team and our business goals is tremendously helpful and gives our CEO and I peace of mind.
