Based in Austin, Texas, ValentineHR has served 800+ businesses and non-profit organizations throughout Texas, the United States, North and Central Americas as well as clients headquartered in EMEA and APAC.

True HR expertise comes from understanding the human element behind the organization, and that’s what we do best. We are your CTO, Chief Thriving Officer. We work closely with board members and key executives to identify what’s working—and what’s not—and serving as change agents, collaborate with leadership teams in transforming organizations for the better.
