Burkland, a full service fractional CFO and accounting provider serving more than 300 startups across the U.S., today announced a new dedicated HR and People Operations practice. Designed to meet the specific needs and challenges of supporting remote workforces, the new practice offers comprehensive support with everything from relocation, training and onboarding to ensuring compliance with state employment rules and regulations.

With remote work spreading employees throughout the U.S., creating new Covid-related business challenges, startups are being forced to quickly understand and meet unfamiliar compliance regulations as well as widely varying state laws. Burkland manages the entire process for them so they can stay focused on the demands of operating and growing their businesses.

"Many of our clients, like startups all over the country, are dealing with the challenges of a remote Covid workforce and it’s likely this trend will continue,” said Burkland CFO Bobby Davidorf. “This creates tedious and complicated internal process creation and compliance mandates. Burkland's People Operations service was designed to manage the entire process and allows start up execs to focus on what they need to to keep their businesses running smoothly.”

Unlike most outsourced HR and People Operations services, Burkland’s new practice is the only one of its kind to offer the strategic insights and services startups need, including:

  • Relocation Support
  • Creation of Employee Reimbursement Policy (Taxable vs Non-Taxable Benefits)
  • Creating, Updating, and Distributing Employee Handbooks
  • Parental Leave Policy Implementation
  • Offering Discounted Employee Harassment Training
  • Create a Continuing Education Policy
  • Develop a Training/Onboarding Program for New Hires
  • Implementation of a Performance Review System
  • Payroll State Registrations
  • Payroll Reconciliations ― Payroll Reports vs GL
  • Benefit Renewals / Open Enrollment
  • Assistance with New Hire Onboarding
  • Assistance with Termination Offboarding

Spatial, the immersive audio experience company that provides compelling, dynamic soundscapes, turned to Burkland for HR and Finance management after experiencing the pain points of most start ups -- a lack of organization, communication and information consolidation across administration departments.

“We hired Burkland to take over our CFO and People Operations after experiencing pain points that many startups do: a lack of organization, communication, and information consolidation across our administrative departments,” said Bella Kidd, Director of Business Operations for Spatial. “Partnering with Burkland has allowed our small company to streamline our hiring processes, greatly improve contractual and financial organization and optimize employee benefits. We are extremely satisfied with the energy and expertise Burkland has introduced to our small team and we thank them for making our People and Financial operations run seamlessly!”

“Most early-stage companies don’t have the resources to bring HR in-house. If you have fewer than 50 employees, full-fledged HR is simply not that realistic,” said DJ Marini, Managing Director of the Burkland Bookkeeping and Accounting Team. “We’re thrilled to be able to offer the new HR and People Operations practice to help our founder clients to keep their focus on operating and growing their businesses.”
