Things to Know

We’ll take care of your human resource back office so you can focus on the rest of your business.


Frequently Asked Questions

What services do you provide?

Carolina HR offers a full-range of HR administrative and management services. The options range from complete HR services much like one would expect from internal HR staff to single projects such as an HR audit, development of an Employee Handbook or supervisory training.

Our HR person just left, can you help me now?

We are very willing to do what it takes to help our clients. In this situation, we may process payroll using the client’s existing payroll method until we can transition to our payroll method. We may even perform the work on-site for a limited period of time if that is what the client needs.

An employee just filed a claim of discrimination against us with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. What can you do to help us?

We are very accustomed to working with employment attorneys to answer these types of claims. Normally Carolina HR  would conduct the investigation and provide a draft of the employer’s response to the company’s attorney for review. Having us do the legwork and draft the response saves the client thousands of dollars versus having an attorney conduct the investigation and write the response.

Do you specialize in specific industries?

Due to our varied experience, we are not limited to one or two industries. Our HR skill sets transcend industry boundaries, so we are confident working with many different types of businesses.

Can SmallBiz HR help my growing business?

With SmallBiz HR, we provide you with a dedicated HR manager and comprehensive HR solutions designed specifically for your small business, empowering you to focus on what you do best – growing your business.

What size company usually needs your services?

Some of our clients have less than 10 employees while some have more than 1,000 employees; however, the majority of our clients have between 30 and 80 employees

Can you help me even if we have an HR staff?

Certainly. By working with your existing HR staff, we can enhance their effectiveness, freeing them for other, more strategic roles in your business.

How much will your services cost me?

Carolina HR fees are based on the specific services we provide to the individual client. Different than internal HR staff, this means our clients do not pay us for time spent performing other duties and/or downtime. We welcome the opportunity to learn more about your needs and provide you with a free quote.


What People say

We recently went through some significant changes requiring that we outsource our HR function.  Carolina HR really stepped up and provided great service in a timely fashion.  They are very knowledgeable about all aspects of HR and we feel very well represented with them on our side. Carolina HR has been a great resource!

John Brazil

CAO, Asheville Orthopaedic Associates

After using CHRP for over 9 years, I have had only a wonderful professional relationship with their team. They meet my HR, accounting, and payroll needs on a daily basis. It truly is a pleasure to have such an outstanding team in support of my business.


Jim Kammann

President , Dining Innovations llC

Carolina HR functions as if they were directly on our team. Their quality of work, communication, and knowledge has always felt like an extension of our own company and not just a vendor. CHR provides us quality HR work and advice including staying up to date on all regulatory changes that we cannot focus on in our day to day business. While our team members are our most important asset, processing HR & Payroll is a distraction from our core business and CHR allows us to focus on what really matters.

Greg Catevenis

CFO & SVP , Brumit Restaurant Group, LLC

For nearly a decade we’ve partnered with Carolina HR. They manage our payroll & benefits including advising and overseeing our onboarding, applicant tracking, insurance offerings, 401k, and COBRA.

In the last 10 years we have almost doubled to 60 restaurants and crossed state lines; CHR’s service and commitment to helping us navigate the HR landscape and ever changing government regulations hasn’t wavered. Our partnership is invaluable.

Jo Ann Yoder

President , Brumit Restaurant Group, LLC (Arby's)

Not all businesses are large enough to justify a full time HR person. That was the case with us, so in 2016 we hired CHR to recruit employees and ramp up HR functions at our new manufacturing facility in Mills River, NC. Since then they have continued to add value by taking care of our Personnel, Payroll, and Benefits Administration.

Cathy Jernigan

VP of Operations, Smart Products, INC.

I view Carolina HR Partners as my HR department. Treating them as my coworkers and partners in business, I rely on them for their advice, guidance, and professionalism. They sit in meetings with me, guide us through sticky situations, and assist with insurance and personnel selection. They are a tremendous asset to our company and much cheaper than hiring a top notch HR Department.

Carla Maddux

President, Asheville Fence

We used Carolina HR Partners during a time of tumultuous organizational change. They were invaluable  in this situation, allowing us to focus on providing uninterrupted services to our clients while they handled all of out HR needs.  Their provision of professional services and HR expertise ensured us that we made the right choice in for our HR partner.

Elizabeth Williams

Executive Director, MountainCare

Carolina HR Partners is a company we trust to help with our payroll and human resources needs. For a small organization such as ours, Carolina HR Partners fills an essential role for WNC Bridge Foundation, freeing up staff time so they can focus on other critical areas of their job.


Scott Buchanan

President / CEO, WNC Bridge Foundation

For over ten years, Carolina HR has managed all our human resources needs including payroll administration, employee benefits and 401k. They are always quick to respond whenever we have changes arise, be it new hires or changes in benefits and/or regulations. CHR has been a vital resource for us throughout the pandemic as well, keeping our business abreast of new changes and requirements in this difficult time. No matter the issue, they always make it a top priority to keep our management and employees both informed and safe.
