About Us

  • LinkedIn


Our story is the story of our owner and CEO, Jill Grodzicki. Not too many people are actually "called" to a profession. Maybe Jill discovered a love of all things people in her very first job as a camp counselor-in-training at age 16 when a game of tug-of-war was the start of Jill bringing people together for one mission.  Maybe her HR calling can be attributed to her active role in a nationally-award-winning service organization called Circle K. Maybe it's because she is an observer of people and someone who sees lessons from the behaviors of others. Perhaps it is her love of dogs whom she believes represent and inspire unconditional love and trust.

No matter the reason, Jill focused her entire career in many areas of the HR discipline, gaining knowledge and honing her expertise across HR functions and industries. Jill started her HR career as a Human Resource Generalist for several bank branches and then as an HR Generalist/HRIS for a national home improvement retail chain. Jill credits her next HR position as Benefits Director at Tommy Hilfiger, Inc. as

the one event that had the biggest impact on her career because it "launched my love of benefits along with my passion for HR systems."


Jill's guiding philosophy as a person and as a professional HR Consultant is two-fold:

  1. To operate with integrity, perform with empathy, and be one's authentic self.

  2. To create or assist in creating an environment based on trust to inspire a safe workplace where people can explore, be nurtured, contribute, and grow.

You will see this philosophy manifest in our guiding principles: Our mission, vision, and values.
