Jim Stowe is president of FreshHR and a VIP Member of SBAM. His firm guides business leaders to optimize their HR models, vendors and products.

“The first thing I do is I sit down with the business owner and my first step is what do you have today -- what's working, what's not?” he said. “And then the second step is, what are you trying to achieve, what is fixed? And then we look to get congruence between their business goals and objectives and things going on the HR side of the house, which for most entrepreneurs is not the fun side. And so we we spend some time talking through those discussions and ultimately how much do you want to outsource. A little bit like Goldilocks --  how hot do you want your porridge, I guess.”

Learn more about alternatives for finding HR solutions when Jim Stowe is interviewed this week by Michael Rogers for SBAM’s Small Business Weekly Podcast.

“Culture is one of the most powerful influence and forces that deeply shape all of our values, community and communication styles,” says Fathy Shetiah, owner of 7C Lingo, a Lansing-based cultural interpretation and translation company with customers across the nation. “Culture is essentially about how we communicate and it's reflected in both language and behavior throughout every transaction.”
