Expert Consulting, Training and Investigations

Welcome to! Since 1991, TPO is a highly respected HR consulting firm based in Monterey, California. We are a team of highly experienced, professionally certified HR experts and Licensed Private Investigators (Lic: PI-25638) who thrive on providing HR Best Practice solutions for all sizes of employers in private, nonprofit, and public sectors.

HR is all we do – and we do it with excellence. We are not a payroll or benefits company tagging on HR as a sales hook. Our consultants and staff are all long-term full-time employees – real people with critical thinking skills and HR knowledge. You can trust us to provide the expert support you need to comply with complex State & Federal Employment Regulations, achieve positive Employee Relations and optimize HR Strategies.

TPO Membership is our most effective client relationship. Many of our members have been with us for decades – we are truly part of their team. Whether HR is handled as part of other duties, by one person trying to do it all and get it right, or you have a fully staffed HR Department, we support our members when and as needed. TPO is there for non-members alike for special projects and training, but our members always take priority.
