In situations where the expertise of a human resources professional may be warranted, North Star has teamed up with iVision Human Resources, LLC to assist organizations without an HR professional on the payroll. iVision helps ensure that recommendations made are suitable for your company and employees, without having you commit to full-time human resources support.
