Meet the Team
In 2012, I launched Taylor HR Group to help growing businesses mitigate risks while getting them set up for growth. I am passionate about the important role that HR should play in any business, but especially for small businesses where the role is often relegated to an administrative function. As an attorney and human resources professional, I saw an opportunity to build a firm that delivers high quality, strategic and hands-on human resources services effectively and efficiently. I am driven to help clients become and stay compliant with relevant state and federal laws as well as HR best practices so that management can focus on the business.
My areas of expertise and primary roles include:
- Acting as a strategic advisor on all HR and employee-related matters;
- Ensuring workplace compliance with state and federal laws;
- Assisting clients in developing and maintaining an accountable and respectful work environment to attract and retain staff and increase productivity;
- Managing employee performance issues, including Performance Improvement Plans and terminations;
- Managing workplace claims from receipt of claim through conducting an internal investigation and disciplining the employees involved;
- Conducting harassment investigations, both for existing clients and as an independent investigator;
- Developing written policies including, but not limited to, employee handbook policies, workplace policies, procedures for Massachusetts and multi-state employers
- Developing and implementing harassment policies (including serving as the Harassment Officer for multiple clients);
- Developing and conducting management training as well as other custom workplace training.
