Your HR Professional for Small Business Success.
Building your HR foundation, so you can focus on your business - that’s my job.
As Featured In:
Tim Baker, CHRP, CHRL
HR Partner, Advisor & Consultant
In the area of HR, I focus on start-ups and small businesses. Why? Because it’s an exciting time of creativity, energy, and growth, especially for your people! Building your HR foundation is key, especially in Canada. The last thing you should be doing is trying to navigate the world of HR & Employment on your own. 

I take a very holistic approach to Talent Sourcing. Filling positions is one thing; building a talent pipeline is another. You really have to know who you are looking for before you go out looking for them. By partnering with your team I can build your candidate profile, and then go find them.
 
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.

What Clients Have To Say

MARC PAVLOPOULOS,
FOUNDER & CEO
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."

DR. Y. BENTOV
MEDICAL DIRECTOR
JUNO FERTILITY

"Tim 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."

MATT ENGLISH
FOUNDER & CEO
EMPIRE MARKETING

"Tim has been an invaluable part of growing my business. As a small business owner navigating expansion for the first time, Tim has ensured I follow all of the proper practices for hiring, compensation, vacations, and any of the more unpleasant side of human resources. I have zero worries about any staffing issues because I know Tim is on it, and I can concentrate on my business."

JACKIE MACDONALD-BARTKIW,
