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.

  • It was a delight to work with Business Sherpa Group. They kept things on-track and moving forward while maintaining a high degree of professionalism throughout some tough situations. I felt that the BSG model was a great approach to compliment my team – it was a real partnership and knowing that there was a whole BSG team behind the resources working directly at VON was an invaluable asset... and the great value for the cost was a bonus!

  • 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.

  • Every start-up goes through an ‘awkward stage’ of growth where you have a strong need for senior executives in HR, Marketing and Finance, but do not have the resources or workload to hire them full-time. BSG filled these gaps at a time when leadership was critical as we grew from 35 employees to well over 100, where it now makes sense to hire some of these roles full-time

  • 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.

  • We enjoyed working with BSG in our search for a new Executive Director. From beginning to end, the executive search consultant showed a genuine interest in understanding our culture, goals, and challenges. They were very responsive, kept us on track and it was obvious that they wanted the best outcome for our organization. And as an NFP, the price point fit.

  • 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.

  • With BSG, you are dealing with one individual but have the knowledge base of a much larger group. Any recommendations that need statistical backing or multiple opinions are easy to obtain despite only having to deal with one trusted HR professional. They have my “HR back”, so to speak and I know I can depend on quality advice and information from them in a very short timeframe.

  • Business Sherpa Group has been an integral part of my management team at the last two associations I’ve led. Operating in the non-profit sector with increasingly constrained resources, it is impossible to maintain this level of HR expertise internally. Quite literally, it’s like having a trusted, resourceful and smart executive always at your right hand, but only occasionally on your payroll.

  • As a non-profit organization, adaptation is critical to our survival. The Business Sherpa Group has helped us shift through ever changing environments to meet the current challenges with the right tools. Whether it was Human Resources, Marketing or operational support, the response was knowledgeable and well grounded to work in our environment.

  • 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.
