Any size of firm can benefit from executive-level advice and professional HR services. Robert R. Scurfield & Associates has been helping family enterprises deal with both the monumental questions and routine responsibilities of business management since 1992.

Sound advice for important transitions

When business partners are family members, more than the bottom line is at stake. Key decisions demand equal attention to interpersonal relationships and sound business planning.

We can help you navigate important discussions about leadership, inter-generational transfer and division of duties in an atmosphere of trust, respect and open communication. We’ll provide objective advice about what is best for your business, balanced by a sensitivity to what is best for your family. We’ll take a long-term view of your business goals, and help you find the right strategy for getting there.


Cost-effective solutions for your HR needs

In a small business, HR duties may compete for attention on the already-crowded desk of someone senior– the accountant, the head of operations, maybe even the president. Or they may be delegated to someone junior, who may never identify the most critical human resources needs. Either way, the firm’s investment in people may be neglected, which can lead to serious business issues.

We can fill the gap by taking care of any or all HR functions. Services and advice will be customized to your unique needs, whether you require ongoing consultation or help with a specific project.
