Felicia Harris’ EverythingHR provides human resources and financial services to more than 250 businesses and organizations around the nation and assists about a thousand more business owners and workers through incubators, government programs and educational institutions. In 2018, her clients hired more than 500 employees.
As HR consultants, Harris and her team provide insights to a company’s existing HR department. Smaller businesses may use EverythingHR as their sole HR team, making use of their workforce planning, analytics, compensation, benefits and employee relations services and products.
Harris also provides information and education for her clients through newsletters, workshops and webinars. In January, Harris launched her EverythingHR Podcast podcast on BlogTalk Radio, where she and experts cover a variety of issues and answer call-in questions.
“As a heavily federal and state regulated motor carrier, we recently had the pleasure of working with Felicia and using EverythingHR services to assist us with a workmen’s compensation underpayment claim. … Not only have our issues been resolved, but we saved over $60,000 and have been educated on how to perform better,” said Raluca Caraba Chit, president of ROC Express Inc.
Harris, a problem solver who uses multidimensional approaches to her work, could not find a program she liked to help clients track employee attendance, key workforce metrics and billable hours. So, she created the EverythingHR HRIS app, which is available on QuickBooks, to help employers unite human resource strategy with business strategy. She is working to create a mobile app and to add a low-cost virtual HR service for microbusinesses that cannot afford an in-house HR team.
An involved and energetic member of her professional community, Harris has helped entrepreneurs at the Macomb-Oakland University Incubator earn U.S. State Department contracts by assisting with grant writing, reviewing proposals and determining staffing requirements and budgeting.
