vcfo’s HR Consulting Services Division, vhr, announces the promotion of Liz Hocker and continued expansion of services
vcfo, a leading professional services firm offering financial, recruiting and human resources solutions, announced the promotion of Liz Hocker to Managing Director of the company’s HR Consulting Services Division, vhr. In this role, Ms. Hocker is responsible for overseeing the business development, planning and daily operations of the vhr practice.
vhr has experienced an 80% growth in client engagements in the past year. Due to the growing demand for interim HR services, vhr is currently hiring additional senior HR professionals to join the teams in the Houston, Austin, Dallas and Denver markets.
“We’ve received a great deal of interest from companies in need of human resource guidance. Engagements over the past year have addressed a wide range of company issues from strategic workforce alignment programs and employee training to basic employer compliance. One particularly hot topic, due to increased government audits and fines, has been ensuring employees and contractors are classified correctly according to the IRS and Fair Labor Standards Act. We also recently launched an international service offering to help our clients recruit and manage the compliance elements of having international staff. We look forward to the continued expansion of our services in all our offices,” said Ms. Hocker.
