Applying Creativity + Innovation to Local Governments

HR Green combines creativity with innovation to provide staff augmentation and consulting services to local governments.

We understand local government challenges and our insightful staff continuously seek new innovations and technologies that offer long-term solutions, or discover underdeveloped assets for generating new revenues. Our seasoned leaders implement entrepreneurial business thinking to develop unique approaches by generating creative and innovative ideas for various initiatives to help the communities they serve.
