HR Consulting and Assistance

With more than 15 years of human resources experience, I’ve seen lots of employee issues play out in various ways and I’m confident that your organization’s current HR challenges won’t scare me off. I’ve been an HR department of one, so I’ve worn all the typical HR hats, but my specialties are recruiting, training, employee communications and corporate compliance.

Most of my clients are based in Maryland and Virginia, but I’m willing to work with organizations in other geographic locations.

Amanda Haddaway was extremely instrumental in helping our organization meet our training objectives for the year. She listened to our goals and needs, then developed custom training materials that included real-world examples relevant to our company and employees. The training sessions mixed role-playing and activities that effectively demonstrated the information being covered. Our employees really felt that Amanda was an expert in the topic areas being taught and most of all, the sessions were fun and informative! We’ll be looking for Amanda’s guidance to help us achieve next year’s goals as well!” – Julie McGoldrick, PHR, HR Manager for Resonate Learn More
