What My Clients Say About Connect to HR:


“Prior to hiring Michelle, we worked with another consultant but the staff didn’t feel comfortable confiding in her. Michelle is very personable, professional, and approachable. People felt comfortable sharing with her. After working with Michelle, I had less stress and was able to sleep at night, knowing I had someone I could trust. She kept things confidential. She was also really knowledgeable about California employment law. She kept me informed and up to date when something changed.”

– Diane R., Former Executive Director of YSI

“Michelle has amazing commitment to the team. She’s also very good about balancing the needs of the people with the needs of the company. That’s incredibly unique. She was more than a consultant – she was part of my team. I’ve worked with a lot of HR partners, Michelle is the best I’ve ever worked with.”

– Juli C., Sr. VP of Customer Retention (Veritas)

“The great thing about Michelle is that she’s flexible and able to work with a small company. She’s willing to sit down and go over HR at a high level, where we want our culture to be and then the strategies to get there.”

– Brandon F., Chief Operations Officer (Tangible Science)

“Before we started working with Michelle, we had looked at HR platforms, but Michelle was a live person with experience and knowledge, who could share examples with us, versus us interacting with a computer screen. She’s a great sounding board as different situations come up. Thanks to Michelle, I’ve gained confidence in what I’m doing and how I handle situations. I also know that as new issues come up I can reach out to her for advice. She’s accessible and easy to work with.”

– Marci H., HR Manager (IDW Publishing)

“Michelle quickly gained the confidence and trust of her business leaders through her authenticity, integrity, and solution-oriented approach. This enabled her to effectively manage complex business/employee situations and drive results throughout the organization. I’ve learned a great deal from Michelle during my time partnering with her.”

– Choua K., HR Manager (Veritas)

“As a trained chef and business owner with no HR experience, I had to learn HR on the job. Michelle was a great teacher in that she walked me through things step by step. She was thorough and comprehensive, yet kept it simple: here’s your issue, here are some scenarios, here are the rules. She didn’t throw a lot of legal language at me.”

– Lourine W., Owner (Left Coast Catering)

Michelle Mendoza, Connect to HR, has reduced the time spent on personnel issues by 40–50% by creating our Organization’s Handbook. Before Michelle, we had no infrastructure in place. Michelle is very open and listens to her client’s needs and designs the solution. Michelle is professional and understands the needs of our organization. “Love her and she is awesome!!”

– Sue F., Operations Manager (YSI)

Michelle helped our management team get educated on how to deal with employees and consulted with us on Human Resources issues. Michelle reviewed what documentation the company had in place, and advised us regarding process improvements (i.e. job descriptions). Michelle has given us the guidance we lacked in communication within the company to get us on the same page.

– Maria M., President (CMI Manufacturing)

Michelle’s expertise helped in developing our Employee Handbook. Since the creation of the handbook, there is less confusion in the office; we defer decisions through the handbook, less arbitrary. Michelle is an expert in her field, and gave us the results we were looking for. She makes sure that all applicable laws (state and federal) are included in the Employee Handbook. We have tried other HR Consultants in the past, but they did not compare to Michelle’s expertise.

– Thomas L., President (Southland Valuation, Inc.)
