Seasoned HR Executives … At Your Service

No single person can specialize in every aspect of a company. This tenet holds true in Human Resources, which encompasses several critical functions: from recruiting and staffing to training and development to payroll and compliance. Even seasoned human resources professionals need expert guidance on occasion. 

That’s why The Lindenberger Group has recruited a diverse team of experienced human resources professionals. Our consultants average at least two decades of HR experience, with various specialties, working with different industries. Founder Judy Lindenberger has selected each for his or her specific strengths and how they complement the firm’s culture of delivering results while respecting client budgets. 

Our consultants embrace a team approach to solving challenges. Together, we help clients in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and beyond transform human resources into an essential part of your business strategy. We may help a business owner in Mercer County create job descriptions and a new employee on-boarding process. We may partner with the HR department of a Philadelphia corporation to review their compensation and benefits packages. In every case, we offer flexible and affordable access to objective, senior-level HR expertise.
