About Us

Power HR Inc.

Organizations that Build Leaders Attract and Retain Top Talent.

At Power HR, we believe that the right talent is a game changer, and results in business success. Our value proposition is to show organizations how to create a culture of Inspired Leadership that focuses on coaching and retaining talent. When you get leadership and retention right, your organization will be a talent magnet.

Organizations that opt to extend their development of high-potential talent below senior levels are 4.2 times more likely to outperform those that don’t on a financial composite of revenue growth, operating margin, EBITDA, and return on equity. Companies that take a full-pipeline view of potential also have higher-quality senior leadership and more diversity at every level, not just high potentials.

Effective leadership has a domino effect.  You lead the way you are led.  Companies are more profitable when they reward their executives for consistently demonstrating people-focused, ethical leadership.  Leadership effectiveness drives cash flow.                                                                                                                               

Every interaction with an individual, is an opportunity to tap into their leadership capability.

Our Values

  • Inspired Leadership. Power HR was founded with the vision of creating more inspired leadership in our workplaces.  This value is central to everything we do, and the reason why our firm exists. The word “Inspire” means to excite, encourage, or breathe life into. When you inspire someone, it is as if you are blowing air over a low flame to make it grow.                                      
  • Truth. We build deep professional relationships through transparent and candid communication. We are trusted professional advisors to many individuals and organizations. We are selective about what organizations we partner with.
  • Community ProsperityWe love working with small business owners. Entrepreneurs are passionate about their businesses, and the key to community prosperity.
  • Respect All employees should be treated with deep respect at all times. Diversity and inclusion are key pillars of a respectful workplace, and we are proud to be 100% woman owned.
  • Professionalism. Power HR takes professionalism very seriously.  This means showing up on time and delivering for our clients. Our team abides by the Code of Conduct and Ethics required by the Canadian Council of Human Resources Associations.
  • FunEngaged employees have fun at work.  We believe that injecting some play at work results in more creativity, innovation, and happier, more engaged teams.
