Who We Are

Michelle Gray, President, HR Synergy, LLC

Michelle has worked in the Human Resource industry for over twenty years. With generalized experience, Michelle is knowledgeable in the areas of labor law compliance, employee relations, compensation, benefits, worker’s compensation, and training.

After being impacted by the recession and a reduction in force, Michelle was determined to help businesses who either could not afford or did not have a need for an in-house human resource department.

In 2009, HR Synergy, LLC was developed with our core business focus on Federal and State Labor Law Compliance education for employers and effective Employee Communication Tools. All employers have labor laws they are expected to comply with!

Michelle is an active member of the National Human Resource Association (NHRA), Massachusetts Nonprofit Network, Manchester Human Resource Association (MAHRA), New Hampshire Center for Nonprofits, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM), sits on the board for the HR State Council of New Hampshire and is a steering committee member for Leadership of Greater Manchester.
