Passion for People

After 7 years of traditional HR and Business Consulting and Services, Humanity HR Consulting has pivoted. Rather than performing HR and Operations functions for our clients, we are now focused heavily on teaching our clients to do it for themselves.

Change happens from within the organization, and through years of experience, we have learned that the best path to internal organizational change is to educate the leaders to make the impact themselves.

Led by Certified Executive Performance Coach and Certified Human Resources Professional Kayla Bartel, Humanity HR Consulting is a safe space for leaders who want to drive an organization focused on continuous improvement and cultural health.

In Her Words

“It’s incredibly rewarding to join an organization as a consultant to guide clients through a difficult situation and to then become a trusted partner to come alongside and grow their business. To see the company succeed and the employees flourish is my passion”.
