Our Journey to Success


HR Duo was established by Jerome Forde, our CEO, who has over 30 years of experience in human resources. Jerome was motivated by a desire to advance HR practices through technology, which he felt were not keeping pace with other workplace advancements.
At HR Duo, Jerome has simplified the complexities of workforce management, including staff scheduling and payroll, HR compliance, and managing the employment lifecycle. Our approach features a unique 'once and done' method, focusing on people-first policies and procedures deployed smartly through our Content Hub.
