Terri Olson founded HR Prescriptions in January 2000 for the sole purpose of helping small and mid-size employers deal with the complexities of managing their human capital. In acting as her clients’ on and off-site HR Director, her philosophy has been to keep it simple. She only recommends what the client needs to enhance their employees’ performance and protect their business from legal exposure for non-compliance of State and Federal regulations.
After spending most of her career in the corporate world, Terri began her own venture as an independent consultant under the name of HR Prescriptions and incorporated the business in 2005. As an outsourcing specialist, her focus is on providing an on- and off-site HR professional for small to mid-sized companies. Her clients have come to trust her to give honest and simplified advice to minimize the risks in managing their most valuable asset…their employees.
Terri offers over 25 years of Human Resources generalist experience in HR management and consulting. With an expertise in employee relations, employment law, communications, policy development and conflict resolution, Terri provides a bottom-line, pro-active approach to the people management aspect of your business, consulting and coaching with a business partner mentality. Her experience with mid to large sized companies in finance, retail, medical and service industries offers real-world insight of what works and doesn’t work in today’s rapidly changing workplace environment.
Terri has presented numerous HR topics in public seminars throughout Orange County and has trained company management and staff employees on topics such as hiring the right people, sexual and other unlawful harassment, and employee coaching and discipline. Her advice has been quoted in the Law Office Administrator on the topic of managing office gossip and in Medical Office Manager on the issue of employees dating at work. In addition, Terri’s article, “Hiring and Retaining the Best” was featured in Fullerton Magazine.
