Edgar Ndjatou came highly recommended to us. My partner and I requested that Edgar help us properly document our relationship with our independent contractors so that our business could move forward with hiring. He developed documentation personalized to both our industry and to our brand, including protecting our business from staff soliciting our company鈥檚 clients. Edgar was very thorough and organized, and we worked cooperatively together, in a timely manner. Overall, Edgar鈥檚 approach was very compassionate and understanding to our business needs. We would definitely recommend Edgar to anyone who is interested in excellent work product, and working with someone with integrity.

I began working with Officium shortly after beginning work as a Business Manager for a new start up property maintenance company. I was essentially the only staff member, and needed support in bringing together the team of staff we would need to run the company effectively. Officium came recommended by our sister company and Edgar was very helpful in planning and preparing for the hiring process. Over the course of about 6 - 8 months, Officium coordinated the hire of three new staff members. I appreciated how detailed and prepared Edgar was in managing the process. He communicated consistently, and more importantly, I felt like he really understood what we were looking for in each staff position and he became a trusted partner in navigating the process. He also is very knowledgeable about HR systems and was an amazing resource as we set up all the policies and procedures needed to have a smooth onboarding process, as well as ongoing HR support. For a small business or organization, ...

I am the co-founder of a new interior design firm in Washington, DC. While small, we wanted to be sure that we are compliant with DC regulations regarding W2 and 1099 employees and also to have a comprehensive and professional employee operations manual which also included an honor code. Edgar Ndjatou provided excellent service to meet our needs. The resulting document is professional, filled with DC-compliant regulations, corporate policies, and an honor code and mission statement to inform and motivate our staff. Edgar was referred through a business entrepreneurship society and is exceptionally well-qualified in this area. His frequent communications and guidance were extremely helpful in reaching our goals. He raised questions for my business partner and I to consider which in the end helped us make employee policy we are proud of and which will lead to employee retention and success. I highly recommend Edgar for all of your human resources-related needs.
