The expertise you want at the volume you need


Why a Fractional CPO

Startups, or growth companies, move quickly through the unavoidable stages of company growth.  So, they tend to feel the impact of any people problems in a major way.

Once a company tops 20 people it faces a new set of challenges that are heavily people-oriented.  Leadership must change their focus and style, and communication begins to suffer as there are now sub teams that don’t have natural touchpoints across the organization.

It’s not until the team reaches about 50 people that it typically makes sense to hire a full-time Chief People Officer or executive level Head of Talent.

A fractional CPO is the perfect bridge.
