Our Calling OR The Tate Difference

Tate and Associates has one calling: to nurture people so companies thrive. We’re not talking just about human resources; we’re talking about human potential. We see the whole person, cultivating strengths, coaching areas of improvement and nurturing needs that extend outside the workplace.

We also see your whole company – who you’ve been and who you’re becoming. We’ve helped countless organizations plant seeds of strategic greatness, grow visionary leadership teams and cultivate an environment of success.

Small Seeds to Large Trees: We Grow Them All

LARGE ORGANIZATIONS
You already have a powerhouse department, but need a fresh perspective on audit, investigation or special project. Tate and Associates will fit right in with a custom plan for an entire function or a blended project, saving your staff energy and saving you money.

MID-SIZE ORGANIZATIONS
You have a designated HR person, but she’s wearing many hats. We hear you! We’ll be at her beck and call with on-trend training and expert guidance to avoid costly mistakes or litigation.

SMALL ORGANIZATIONS
You’re a small business owner who needs to focus on your bottom line – but you know HR is a critical task. Tate and Associates can grow your HR protocols from the ground up and maintain them, until you decide to assign the responsibilities internally. (And when that time comes, we can recruit the perfect candidate, too.)

Alabama State University

Melva is a true strategic business partner. She has the ability to connect and communicate with employees from entry level all the way up to the C-Suite. She provided coaching services for my employer, for an employee who initially was not a willing participant, but through Melva’s style and professionalism he changed to looking forward to their sessions.

The University is very pleased with Melva’s results and we are already partnering with her to provide additional services. Not a consultant, but a true “strategic business partner.”

Melva was instrumental in helping recruit, assess and select key employees during our time of growth. She was quick to understand our business and human capital needs. She really made me feel as if she was part of my organization versus an outsourced service.
