What sets Fortress & Flourish Apart
Human Resources (HR) doesn’t have to be a dirty word or just a way for your company to protect itself legally.
HR can help your business thrive with happy employees who are supported both in their physical needs and in having a deep sense of fulfillment by aligning your business with equality, sustainability, and community.
In the HR Foundations Package, Candice will help you align your business with these core values, so you can both protect your company and help your business thrive with happy employees.
Implement a flexible, cyclical HR ecosystem rooted in company values that protects both your business and your employees with equitable policies and clear communication that makes life easier and more fulfilling for all.
Eliminate manager burnout through a clearly communicated pathway for decision-making that provides clarity about responsibilities. This increases trust and harmony in the workplace and helps eliminate decision fatigue and unintentional inequities.
Support the thriving happiness of the people who work with you to bring them together in their shared purpose by including their feelings, feedback, and needs in transparent HR processes.

"We have a complicated mix of employees, contractors and were also expanding our company adding a whole new department when we started working with Candice.

Have an extractive model that you want to keep in place and reinforce
