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.

See What Our Clients Have to Say

They are my extra set of eyes. A resource who assists in prioritizing the health of our team while ensuring we are able to continuously improve our internal HR processes.

Kelly Rowell
CEO, Council for Entrepreneurial Development

I have been partnering with Performentor for 5+ years to support Laxton’s nonprofit clients. Performentor continues to bring retained and just-in-time human resource and employee relations support solutions to me and my clients – from reviewing/improving existing policies and practices to serving as a thought-partner for our CEOs.

Wendy Laxton
 Founder and President
Laxton CFO Services

Performentor’s support for me, our executive team and mid level managers here has been phenomenal. They have helped free up our time so we can truly focus on core business activities which is SUCH an opportunity gain. Not only did we gain access to a huge knowledge base in Performentor’s full stack and fractional team, we gained time internally needed to handle other pressing issues.

“A rising tide lifts all boats.” “I would liken this to when you bring in a new entity such as a new employee who is a star performer. When you bring in an entity who is just a bit further ahead on their path, they elevate everything else around them. Engaging Performentor has elevated everything we do related to people.”

Kim Janzen
President and CEO
SPCA of Wake County

I have always gotten the level of support needed. I will forever sing Performentor’s praises and I am not easily satisfied. When I pay for a certain level of service, I expect that level of service. They have always given me what I needed.

Davan Cloninger
Executive Director at Nevins
