Two of Louisville’s Leading HR Firms are Joining Forces
Who: CenterPoint HR and HR Affiliates
When: December 1, 2017
LOUISVILLE, KY - December 6, 2017 – Today’s complicated business environment is encouraging many small- and medium-sized companies to outsource some or all of the human resource functions they have traditionally handled in-house. That tendency was the driving force behind two Louisville-based HR management firms, CenterPoint HR and HR Affiliates, deciding to join forces.
“The trend to outsource all or a portion of human resource functions is very strong and expected to continue for the foreseeable future,” says Paul Gordon, managing member of HR Affiliates. “Combining our firms and competencies adds resources so that our clients save even more time and money by focusing on their core competencies, while we take care of the rest.”
According to the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), a partnership with an HR services firm offers many benefits including a return on their investment, greater focus on business strategy, improved regulatory compliance and reduced risk, an ability to gain additional expertise for their
organization, time savings, increased employee productivity and cost effectiveness.
The combined company will operate as HR Affiliates, LLC and will be headquartered in Louisville, KY. Jennifer Wheatley, former president of CenterPoint HR will continue with the organization as Vice President overseeing the HR Managed Services Division.
