To the Simple Side Of HR

With Donna & Jackie of The Galatas Group

Yeah, Yeah. We Know. HR is Not Easy

We’ve Heard That Before

But We’re Here to Tell You That

HR Can Be Easy!

“You are not stuck where you are unless you decide to be.” — Wayne W. Dyer

Our specialty here at The Galatas Group is developing HR tools

to help our clients move forward.

There is no need for you to feel stuck!

We Are The Link To Making HR Easy

That’s really what we make our solutions all about.  It’s just how we roll!

Check Out How Two Crazy Ladies Got Clients To Love HR



We started working together after leaving corporate HR jobs. We LOVED working in Human Resources and realized that we wanted to expand our reach and work our magic for people who really needed our HR expertise and didn’t already have internal HR help.

Turns out those folks were crazy cool! Think micro and small business owners, entrepreneurs and start-ups, managers and even other HR professionals. And the most fun part-- they came from different and fascinating industries AND from all over the country.




Here’s what we discovered from speaking engagements, HR blogging, guest writing for industries, and straight up consulting: Our clients were all VERY sharp (and fun loving!) AND they were a bit intimidated about handling all the different HR tasks and employee relations issues.

We discovered that we were great teachers too. Not only did we help our clients solve their immediate problems quickly and easily, we also helped them to understand the problem-solving processes we used to reach the solutions. We created checklists and questionnaires and easy to follow procedures that they could use over and over again in many different situations.


As we worked together over the past few years, we developed many HR techniques and HR tools that we’ve shared with clients from many industries; clients in various stages of their business; clients with large and small teams.

We identified common threads woven in amongst them all.

Patterns Began To Emerge.

Our greatest desire was to help more people understand that HR can be easy,

fun, and impactful to the bottom line when approached correctly.

We know our clients, and YOU TOO, can “take it from here”

once you have the right tools and once you “get” it.

The best praise our clients can give us is that we gave them

confidence and great resources to move forward on their own—

so they don’t need us anymore!
