The Northeast HR for Hire division of BST is led by Senior Advisor, Jack J. McGaughnea, who founded Northeast HR For Hire in 2001 and has more than 34 years of experience as a human resources professional. Under BST, Northeast HR for Hire will continue to offer a full-range of human resources services individually designed to meet each client’s needs, including: employee and labor relations; recruitment; orientation and training programs; compensation and benefit design; federal and state employment regulation compliance; discipline and termination procedures; safety programs and compliance; and worker’s compensation law and claims management, amongst others.

Jack’s ability to combine the needs of the business with the skills and experience of the employees has allowed him to focus on the people-side of change.  He has worked with all levels of an organization to bring about changes in business processes, systems, and technology.  His ability to blend the needs of both operations and HR, allows him to understand the change required and to engage employees in the process while encouraging their adoption of a new role within the organization.
