HireEffect™ | How We Started
HireEffect™ has been helping organizations across a variety of industries grow and expand their operations since 2007.
Jennifer Scott originally started our company with the purpose of creating jobs by helping small founder-led and family-owned businesses leverage the benefits of enterprise-level recruitment strategies. With the understanding that small business owners and local entrepreneurs are not necessarily experts at hiring or managing talent, we decided to build a solution to help. By focusing on hiring people based on company culture and the core values of an organization, instead of simply matching up the skills listed on paper, we are proud to be a valuable recruiting asset for many organizations.
And we wanted to do more.
In 2018, Chris joined the HireEffect™ team, and we expanded our core services to include all the strategic business services we now offer, including bookkeeping, payroll, HR, technology and automation, and business advisory services.
Since Jennifer graduated from the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program, our team has more than doubled in size. This allows us to continue to help as many business owners as possible get out of the back office and back to running their businesses. We are responsive and proactive and we know your industry. It is like having a business partner in your back pocket; we are here whenever you need us.
HireEffect™ | Who We Are
Our Purpose (why we exist):
HireEffect™ is a proud member of Conscious Capitalism. We follow conscious business practices and we are driven by service to our purpose – to boost the U.S. economy one small business at a time. By helping founder-led and family-owned businesses thrive and grow, we help create jobs in the communities we serve.
Our Way (how we do it):
With each stakeholder’s needs as our compass, our People First | Technology Forward approach allows us to combine bookkeeping, payroll, HR, recruiting, and client advisory services with cloud-based technology to reduce administrative headaches, drive process efficiency and effectiveness, and unlock growth potential for our clients.
Our Impact (the higher effect we have):
When business owners get out of the back office and back into what they started their business for in the first place, they can focus their time and talents on pursuing their vision and making a positive difference in our society.
Our Conscious Business Promise (our values):
People First: We do whatever it takes to meet our commitments. We strive to always act for the greater good. We put our reputation before our profits. We value output, not hours put in.
Technology Forward: We leverage automation whenever possible. We strive for “Zero Data Entry”. We stay on top of the latest apps and add-ons. We add value that goes beyond expectations to make our clients’ lives easier.
Embracing Change: We look for new ways to be more effective in our work. We strive for continuous improvement. We find solutions for every problem by asking the right questions. We create positive outcomes.
Personal Accountability: We expect as much from ourselves as we expect from others. We strive to educate our clients to make the most of their time and to manage it carefully. We ask for help when we feel we need it and we do what we say we’re going to do. We take responsibility for our actions, speak up, and look for solutions when there’s a problem.
We know that simply adding technology to a broken process only makes a more complicated broken process. We put people first, learn how you do business, and work with you to build customized solutions to meet your needs.
Our Focus is on the People
In today’s economy, it is getting harder and harder for businesses to generate organic growth. At HireEffect™, it is our mission to provide workforce advisory services that set new standards for the people advisory and talent management industries. This translates into happier and more engaged employees which, in turn, translates to happier and more engaged customers. By focusing on the factors that drive employee productivity and maximize profitability, we help you grow. By focusing on the factors that help your employees feel a true sense of belonging and significance, we help you retain your top talent.
The Power of Technology
As a group that firmly believes in the value of technology and efficient automation, we have adopted a Technology Forward approach in all aspects of our business. That doesn’t mean we emphasize the use of a single technology or a specific vendor. Instead, we recognize the value of finding the right technology to meet the individual needs of our clients.
By taking a look at the current state of your organization, we are able to find areas where processes and systems can be streamlined through the application of tools and technology to simplify your daily routines and give you back the time you need to focus on mission-critical aspects of your business. We help you escape from the confinement of back-office administrative work and make it possible for you to return to the work you are passionate about doing.
We Know Your Industry
We are proud to say that the services we offer are the culmination of decades of hands-on experience in a variety of industries: manufacturing, retail, consumer and home services, restaurants, professional services, non-profits, and more. What this means for you is that we can provide the skills, knowledge, and business experience you need to feel confident moving forward.
With the complex challenges of the world today, it just doesn’t make sense for one person, especially a business owner, to do everything on their own. When we have a question or a problem to solve, we want professionals – experts in their fields – to help us, to repair our automobiles, design our homes, and provide medical care. Managing financial data for a company is no different. Working with people who already have the knowledge and skills you need to handle a challenge as efficiently as possible is like having a business partner in your back pocket. By offering you our expertise, you can shift your attention back toward your own customers instead of feeling trapped trying to learn and understand finance and HR.
