Hiring is a major part of starting a business, and Catapult provides a wide range of human resources services. From compliance advice to sample policies, Catapult serves as a resource and sounding board for entrepreneurs seeking HR support at start-up and beyond.

Create Your Business Plan

Solving the “I don’t know what I don’t know about HR” dilemma upon joining, Catapult Members are guided through a comprehensive new member launch meeting where they are connected with vital “getting started” resources.

HR Organizational Assessment

No matter what stage of growth you are in, brand new or established, as a new Member you will take a quick survey about your organization, and they will assess your areas of strength and those that need work via the HR Compliance Snapshot tool. Then, you have the option to review the results with a member of their HR Advice Team, who will advise you on moving your organization forward.

Employee Handbook Template and Review

You are given their attorney-reviewed template for creating your employee handbook; when it’s ready, you submit it to their HR Advice Team for review. An HR Advisor will meet with you to review the findings and recommendations.

Catapult provides a full range of learning and development classes. Their dynamic instructors offer interactive, skills-based training rooted in their own hands-on experience as professionals. The array of targeted topics focuses on proven strategies and best practices, with content continuously updated to incorporate topical issues and current business trends. They offer more than 230 different classes to develop your top talent. Multiple formats are available; live online, in-person, private group and on demand. Many offer a special price for Members.


Your business is growing, which means your team is growing with it. Catapult is available to answer your human resources questions and connect you to resources that will help your business grow.

HR Advice Team

Catapult’s HR Advice Team of seasoned HR professionals is available 24/7 to Members—via phone, email, text, and live chat—to answer your questions, make recommendations, and advise on HR policies and procedures.

Employment Law Advice

All Members receive free, unlimited advice on employment law issues and workplace document review from experienced local attorneys as part of their Membership!
