Our Mission

Through our commitment to excellence, caring and the highest level of customer service, we lead the Human Resources journey by providing relevant and powerful solutions to employers.

DEIAB

DEIAB is an acronym that guides the work we do at Circle Strategies. Within our own team, we strive to foster a community that reflects our commitment to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging (DEIAB). These five principles help us visualize a world in which we all feel respect, welcome, and appreciation. As we strive to set the standard of Human Resource services, we must work to acknowledge and respect the differences we recognize in one another. Circle Strategies aims to be a model for Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility, and Belonging, where all our team, clients, vendors, and volunteers are viewed equally.

Our goal of achieving exceptional service centers around transparency and comprehensive communication. We accomplish this with these best in class tools.

What Clients Say About Us!

I’ve worked directly with Clifford Watkin to strengthen both our internal and global firm processes. Knowing that I can reach out to Cliff or anyone on the CS staff with my questions has had a really positive impact on my own work success.

Bea C. Firm Administrator

Clifford Watkin and his team have helped us with Job Descriptions, Onboarding Processes, and Recruiting, and we find them to be very helpful, knowledgeable, and easy to work with. Clifford is very good, easy to talk to and has a way to let you know what needs to be done without going overboard. It’s been a pleasure working with him.

Patricia F. Director of Human Resources, UHM Properties

Having Circle Strategies recommended to us was a godsend! As a small growing company, we do not have our own HR department yet, so having experts like those at Circle Strategies to call on when we need help has been extraordinarily helpful for our company- both for general HR questions and for sensitive HR related issues. They have ensured we are compliant, organized and inclusive. We are so grateful to have Circle Strategies as our HR consultants.

Kristen G. Producing Artistic Director

We put our trust in Circle Strategies to help establish our Hudson, NH location. From the UK, they were our boots on the ground - meeting with vendors, interviewing candidates, setting up payroll - the list goes on and on. It was such a relief to know they could deliver on time.

Maireadh P. CEO Quay Pharmaceuticals

When I joined the ALPHA Coaching and Mentoring Program, I didn’t really know what to expect. Clifford was assigned as my mentor and really helped me think through a major career moment. Not only did he provide a warm and welcoming environment, but he was always ready to provide tangible resources. I feel truly honored that I was matched with Clifford and am really excited for his future mentees.
