Why Garnet River for Human Resources
It starts with our team. In addition to a highly respected practice lead who has more than 30 years of experience in human resources programming and planning, our multidisciplinary approach puts subject matter experts across a range of disciplines an easy ask-for-help away from bringing value to your business. This matters, because not only can we help you assess your current program and make recommendations for an improved path forward, but we also have the resources and talent needed to implement all solutions.

Our Approach


Attract.  Develop. Retain.


Being a preferred place to work is about building a culture that is tangible and real. Whether assisting with components of an existing HR program or ideating a new and/or improved one, we align it with your vision and goals so you can communicate your values and benefits to better attract the job candidates who best fit your organization’s unique needs. We then help establish and deliver the skill acquisition, mentoring, training, and incentivization they need to meet their career goals and feel valued. Employees who feel valued and compensated don’t leave companies. They help grow them.

When an employee joins your organization, they should feel you are committed to their success. They should feel they have found a career home. Our HR program is holistic. From mission and values to benefits and culture, we help you:

  • Demonstrate commitment to employee relationships that is built on accountability, leadership, and teamwork.
  • Reinforce an environment that is welcoming and results oriented.
  • Invest effectively in your employees—with competitive pay, perks, and benefits.

Equally important, we believe everything should connect with big-picture goals and be quantifiable. Our tools and controls help ensure this.


Define. Deliver. Measure.



Connect. Power. Scale.


Garnet River’s roots are in technology, and we are experts in automation and data analytics/business intelligence. So whether you have an existing platform you need to power to higher performance with greater efficiency…or you want to establish a new platform that integrates with your existing technology stack to boost engagement, we can recommend solutions, implement customizations, and even help with maintenance. The goal is to provide a resource that connects your people—so work and information management is easier, impactful, and more secure and connected.
