The 3 C’s: Clients, Colleagues & Community

Here at SDHRC, we spend a lot of time talking about the three C’s: clients, colleagues, and community. With every decision we make, we first ask ourselves, does it benefit all three C’s? We feel it helps make us one of the best HR companies and helped us be awarded San Diego’s Best Places to Work 2022 and 2018.

Doing excellent business with our clients is at the foundation of our company, and by doing good, we mean doing the right thing. We believe in honesty, integrity, and the power of business karma.
We have a supportive environment in which all of our employees work as a team to support one another in their work and personal lives. We celebrate one another, participate in fun in-person team building events, distribute exciting SDHRC "swag", offer generous benefits, and much more!
In the spirit of doing good, part of our culture is to hire individuals who share our vision. We enthusiastically encourage community involvement among our team and are proud to support many local charities. In 2020, our team volunteered over 130 hours to nonprofits in their community.

We’re not like most consulting firms... here’s why.

After years of witnessing unsavory practices among recruitment agencies, CEO, Julie Wootton, had the vision to turn the recruitment and HR world on its head. As a result, she built an HR company founded on the values of doing “good” business with everyone it touches – including clients, colleagues, and the community. In 2019, we got together to volunteer as a team and donated duffel bags full of home goods and toiletries to a local nonprofit, Casa de Amparo.

Learn how our unique values and culture drive all our business decisions.

In the land of SDHRC, a culture of positivity and support drives our business model. We treat our people with dignity and respect. We make sure our clients get exceptional services tailored to their individual needs. Of course, we are for finding top, “right-fit” talent and keeping them happy at all levels of the organization. This is what we’re against: price-gouging, “phoning it in,” and relying on one-size-fits-all services. With SDHRC, we promise you’ll get a fully committed team who are on a mission to delight.

Pioneering a work/life balance model for the 21st century.

In building our team of top-tier recruiters and HR specialists, we realized there was a wealth of untapped talent who were eager to share their skills and knowledge, but who needed the flexibility to make it work with their family obligations. Thus, the SDHRC “mom bench” was born and quickly grew to include dads, grandparents, dog moms, and anyone looking for a flexible work environment. We believe family should always come first and are proving every day that work/life balance is not only possible but a key ingredient to making a business thrive. I guess you could say we made remote work “cool” before the pandemic made it a thing!

SDHR Consulting recruiter Beth Noce volunteering for the community

Check out our featured volunteer spotlight:


For the past 6 months, SDHRC Lead Recruiter, Beth Noce, has consistently volunteered for Open Arms Health Clinic, a free health clinic for uninsured and underinsured members of her local community. They offer services that include the management of chronic conditions, non-emergency issues, health education and ESL classes, counseling and social work services, and periodic other offerings such as partnering with other groups for vaccine distribution and women clinics.

How did you get into volunteering?

"I actually started volunteering here as part of my Masters Program. While I ended up not moving forward with the Masters, I did find that this was something that I felt a tug to keep supporting."

Do you have a favorite memory from volunteering with Open Arms?

I am overwhelmed every week and hearing how places like this is saving their lives. Without free clinics like this, these members of our community would not have the ability to get care for treatable illnesses. The Providers that give their time and skills are truly amazing!

What do we love about our company culture?

“It’s simple. Our leadership cares about the human being. SDHRC has built an innovative culture of satisfied employees and engagement opportunities by focusing on what our employees already know they want and need to be successful. We are a team of human professionals who learn from one another, support out of the box ideas and bring new concepts to the table. And are met with acceptance and interest! I did not realize what I was getting myself into when I started with SDHRC. And it has completely changed the way I think about culture!”

Each of our employees play their own part in forming part of our amazingly well-rounded and unique team.  Our employees are what drives the energy and new ideas behind San Diego Human Resources Consulting.  I am beyond grateful to work with my colleagues because they are respectful, approachable, and ultimately enjoy life.  The work-life balance isn’t just from a textbook, but lived out in practice, which is truly appreciated.  Our team works collaboratively as a whole to best support one another, our clients and our community.”

Business Development

“What do I love about SDHRC’s company culture? Company culture is created by a shared pattern of basic assumptions made by the people who comprise the organization. I believe we share the following assumptions: 1) The SDHRC brand has attracted the most interesting array of clients an HR consultant could hope for. 2) We want our clients to succeed, we want to succeed individually, we want our teammates to succeed, and we want our leader to succeed. 3) We are given the tools to facilitate success – templates, processes, information, and
person to person support.”
