Maximizing the Benefits of Hiring an Interim HR Contractor

What is an HR interim contractor?

An interim HR contractor is a professional who provides short-term, specialized Human Resources support to organizations on a project or short-term basis. These contractors typically have extensive experience and knowledge in specific areas of HR, such as employee relations, performance management, compliance, etc. They are generally brought in to address specific HR challenges or fill a vacancy within an organization, rather than serving as a permanent employee. Interim HR professionals can provide a range of services, including but not limited to:
