Mid-size Business


accelHRate Mid-size Business brings the power of well-developed strategic HR solutions tailored to your specific needs.

Compared to small companies, you have more money to fund innovation, deal with unforeseen challenges, hire key talent, and build deeper bench strength. Compared to larger companies, you can be more agile, maintain closer contact with customers, have fewer layers between executives and the rest of your employees, and retain some entrepreneurial spirit. Your mid-size business requires an HR function that can handle new levels of complexity, including addressing short and long-term planning around talent management, organizational efficiency and executive development yet be effective at maintaining agility.
