Why was Castle HR founded?
Tom experienced a tremendously unprofessional termination that led him on a journey to find most small and medium enterprises struggle with HR – and he decided to help.
Castle HR was created with a remote and flexible company culture to attract seasoned professionals that wanted to focus on work-life balance, which for him meant the freedom to work anywhere in the world.
What does Castle HR do?
Castle HR is Canada’s first and largest virtual Modern HR firm. We operate as the HR team for a number of notable Canadian businesses.
All of our clients have access to a team of seasoned professionals who are equipped to provide Expert HR Advice, Employee Handbooks, Performance Reviews, Talent Acquisition and New Hire Onboarding.
Why Castle HR?
We don’t have to put ourselves in your shoes, we have been founders before. So we created the process that we would use – and we do drink our own champagne too 🙂
We relieve founders from wearing the “HR Hat” by bringing decades of proven success scaling teams to the table.
We are the firm companies turn to as a cost-effective alternative to hiring an internal HR person.
What experience does your team bring to the table?
Castle HR is Tom’s second company and he has worked in leadership roles in the tech and professional services for 20 years.
All of our HR Professionals experience ranging from 10-35 years – this isn’t their first rodeo!
Our Learning & Development Manager spent almost a decade at Apple.
What cities do you serve?
We work with companies anywhere in Canada.
Who is your ideal client?
Companies that have a team of at least 15 employees see tremendous value in our service as that is typically where you have found Market Fit and are looking to scale.
More importantly, you know that your people are the key to your continued success and want to invest in them.
Who would be my point of contact?
We believe continuity in HR is critical to its success. So you are assigned an HR Professional from day one that will lead you through the HR Roadmap and is of course the best person to provide you with expert HR advice.
Why use Castle HR over hiring an HR person?
Companies select Castle HR as we deliver a custom HR strategy efficiently and at a fraction of the cost of hiring a junior HR person.
How much does your service cost?
It depends – vague I know…
The biggest factors are the headcount of your company and the length of our agreement (1-3 years).
We’d love to show you the value of our service by going through our Discovery Process and creating a customized HR Roadmap for you. Use this button to book a call with Tom, our CEO and founder:
How do you structure your service agreements?
Our HRaaS subscriptions are structured for 1, 2, or 3-year terms, paid monthly. We use Rotessa to process the Pre-Authorized Deposits.
