Even startups need an HR professional to help build a solid foundation. You may not need someone full time, but a partner is highly recommended. I build an HR foundation that looks, feels and sounds like your culture. From compliance to engagement, let’s co-create your agile people practices.
The search for talent is a tough road to travel, and the talent is in the driver’s seat. This means that companies must work smarter to find, attract and retain the right talent. Successful talent sourcing is more than just finding the right skill sets; it’s about finding the right people that align with your culture and business goals.

Whether you’re looking for solutions in the area of compliance, employee relations, performance management or talent acquisition, I will provide you with the solutions you need.
Syndesus Working with Tim is enjoyable because he always brings new ideas and approaches. Enthusiasm for one’s career is not a given, but Tim definitely has a passion and enthusiasm for his work. Professionalism and honesty are also critical. When I discussed my business model with Tim, he asked the hard questions and delved into my business model. I like the fact that Tim is ready to admit what he doesn’t know. And then he sets about finding the answer. He has a great network, so the needed information is just a phone call away.

Juno Fertility Tim Baker had joined us to provide human resource services and support. His expertise and attention to detail allowed Juno to improve and grow as an organization. In a short period of time, Tim upgraded the human resource operation of Juno and allowed us to make significant changes in the structure of the employment agreements and compensation. He completed the employee handbook and converted our HR system to a paperless online HR registry. He also governed the process of transition to a web payroll system, scheduling, and attendance applications. He had also played a key role in hiring new personnel for our new clinic in Guelph. Tim’s work is efficient, meticulous and performed at the highest level of professionalism.
