GoldHR was founded by Sam Gold in 2012 to provide HR support to small and medium businesses who need access to professional HR advice and support but don’t need the expense of employing an HR professional.

Nothing phases us – we have the skills, the experience and the insight to make sure that everything is taken care of properly.
