Can you offer a fractional Head of People Operations

Maybe. A fractional Head of People operations can be a cost-effective way to get foundational people strategies in place before hiring a full-time leader. As you can imagine, this is a big commitment, and we don’t always have the bandwidth. Please ask about it when you book your free consultation.
