About NorthstarPMO

Headquartered in Boston, MA and serving clients nationally, we offer innovative business support to small and medium organizations, with deep expertise in HR and PeopleOps

NorthstarPMO was founded to provide valuable, customized business support to our clients - at an affordable price point.

Northstar is the People Operations company supporting the growth of SMEs and non-profits nationwide. We offer a range of services to help with HR operations, payroll/benefits, HR audits, recruiting, employee handbooks, as well as strategic projects such as workforce planning and DEIB programs. Headquartered at 1 Marina Park Drive, in the bustling Seaport district of Boston, MA, our company is set up to efficiently support remote clients, enabling us to serve our clients no matter where they are in the world.

Our philosophy is centered around exceptional client service and delivering tangible results. We are passionately client-first, and offer unparalleled flexibility and customer support. Unlike most consulting firms, we will fit in around your organization, and adopt your success factors as our own. We leverage our nationwide team of HR professionals to make sure we support you with exactly the right skillsets and experience.

Our flexible approach to engagement means that we are willing to work with you in the way that best meets your needs. With each engagement, we get to know our clients before starting work, so we can focus on delivering the best possible solution within your specific circumstances, rather than trying to "sell" you something. Consider us to be an extension to your team, rather than a vendor.

We are Flexible, Affordable, Impactful.

Choosing the right partner is an important decision - we understand that partnering success depends on many factors above and beyond the capabilities of the provider. We believe that having a strong understanding of your business and having a passion for what we do, as well as personality fit with you and your team are all critical factors. That is why we offer every new potential client the opportunity to get to know us, free of charge, before officially embarking on an engagement. If we don't believe we are the right partner for you, we will let you know. Our business, just like yours, depends on satisfied customers - we will not accept any engagement that we don't feel comfortable and confident with.


We were proud recipients of the Bark.com Certificate of Excellence in 2021, in recognition of our commitment to customer service and project delivery.

We are featured as a 'Top HR Services Provider' on UpCity.com, the independent service provider rating site.


In October 2022, we are awarded the Best In Massachusetts award from UpCity.



As a fiercely client-centric organization, customer satisfaction is our first priority. We can provide excellent references upon request.
