Why our clients choose us

  • At Modern Niagara, we have had a spectacular experience with Business Sherpa Group. Beginning as a small construction company 50 years ago, we had limited HR experience and no formal HR department within our company. Around 3 years ago, we began expanding at a rapid rate, and needed expert advice to build the HR function within Modern Niagara. This is where Business Sherpa Group helped us with our expansion. Not only did they provide us an experienced and knowledgeable HR Business Partner who has become a seamless member of our team, but they also recommended a series of strategies and ideas to further expand the HR function. Without Business Sherpa Group, we would not have fully recognized the need for a larger HR function within our company, something that we now could not survive without. The advice and knowledge they provided us had incomparable value. Business Sherpa Group has helped us create strategy that supports the people side of our business, including; recruitment, performance development, employee relations, compensation and benefits, learning, and policy, to name a few.  We are so grateful for Business Sherpa Group’s contributions to our HR team, and would highly recommend their services to other businesses.

  • I had the privilege of working with Business Sherpa Group for the recruitment of ONFE’s new Executive Director. The service provided by BSG was personalized and professional. Small or mid-size not-for-profit organizations looking for executive search support would be well served by BSG.

  • We chose to work with Business Sherpa Group because the virtual model was ideal for us. The combination of a Virtual CFO resource combined with accounting support has released internal resources that we can now redirect elsewhere. The services of the Virtual CFO has freed up my time to focus on larger business priorities, and has provided our board with valuable perspective to improve our business operations.

  • Natra made the decision to establish a new presence as an employer in Ontario. The corporate HR team based in Spain had very limited experience and knowledge on NA standards and needed local support to bring the new facility to life. The BSG became a highly trusted, reliable and resourceful extension of our team and ensured we had ongoing capability, tools and resources for ongoing growth.

  • Our BSG bookkeeper has provided the right level of support along our journey as a growing SaaS company and has proved to be a flexible and responsive resource for us. Adding in vCFO support flexibly as our reporting needs increased has given us essential financial support and allowed us to focus on business growth.

  • We’re a lean organization and didn’t have the time to actively recruit and find good candidates. Having the BSG Talent Solutions team put their experience and dedicated time to use saved us from trying to recruit on the side of our desks. They helped us find an awesome Director of Finance with the right caliber of skills and within our budget. The experience was positive and demonstrated the value of using part-time dedicated support in smaller businesses.

  • Business Sherpa Group has worked with our early stage high tech clients in a number of ways – from direct consulting through to group presentations. Margo is a trusted service provider whose advice always has that invaluable flavour of those who have actually been there. I would not – and do not – hesitate to recommend her.

  • Kinaxis was experiencing high growth in a short period of time, so we needed to augment our HR team with recruiting power. It was more cost efficient to hire someone from BSG to be part of our team than use third party recruiting firms. BSG has a stable of well-qualified individuals who are able to match your needs to their best people for the job at hand.

  • The Business Sherpa Group's unique strength stems from their ability to quickly understand the organization and become an “internal” resource as opposed to an external consultant. They do so while ensuring that industry best practices are brought to bear on the project, guaranteeing a best-in-class result.

  • BSG has provided Inside Edge with high quality financial contract support. This has allowed us to meet our business needs in a flexible way allowing us to dial our support up and down as needed.

  • Since the first meeting, the Business Sherpa Group has been a fundamental force of business change for ProSlide. The Business Sherpa Group sees the path, they execute on the plan, they help find the solutions and support you through every step on the journey. I would recommend any business looking to up their game to consider engaging with this Sherpa team.

Ready to take on the next curve after 30 years of an amazing ride.

How does a company that has enjoyed a global industry leadership position for close to 30 years remain on top of their game in the face of a shifting global market? The common denominator to ongoing peak performance is leadership, and more specifically, a leader’s willingness to embrace change and innovate their own business.
