Custom HR Solutions with Personal, Professional Support

We give you what large payroll companies can’t.
24/7 support - 365 days a year.

Large payroll companies may offer similar services to ours, but they typically come in a box or computer program without much actual live support. We provide a dedicated person, available to handle whatever delicate employment situations you or your managers may face. We begin our service to any client with a free audit to fully assess your level of compliance with government regulations. This allows you or your HR clerk to customize our services to fit your needs. In most cases, we can provide significant savings over hiring more staff in two ways: First, by providing HR services in lieu of a direct hire, we can provide a savings of at least $30,000 annually. Second, by helping you stay compliant with state, federal, and local employment regulations, we can help prevent significant fines for noncompliance.

We take on the other tasks other HR companies won’t

HR Audits:

Let us double-check your policies, procedures, and documentation so your HR function stays in compliance. We stay up to date with ever-changing rules and regulations - so you don't have to!

Employee Audits:

Need to take the temperature of your workforce? Let us assist you in assessing the needs and desires of your employees.


Finding qualified employees is time-consuming and when you do, completing the required paperwork is tedious. We can serve as your recruiting consultants and make certain all the i's are dotted and t's are crossed once you find the right individual for the job.

The Sage Philosophy:

The key to sustained success for any organization is having a strong base. The components of this base, which together form the Sage Stability Pyramid®, include People, Policy and Process. A strong base is formed when the three triangles of the Sage Stability Pyramid are equally optimal. When processes are efficient, policies are clear and consistent and people are engaged, the base is strong. If any of the three are deficient, the strength of the base is altered, and the other two are in danger.


Unfortunately, some hires don't always work out. When you must go separate ways with an employee, let us help you with this process to take the stress away.

Employee Handbook and Guides:

All employers need an employee handbook, but creating one can take a lot of time that you don't have. We can do it for you, and do it well.

Workplace Investigations:

We can serve as an unbiased third party when investigations become necessary.

Sherri McDaniel's smiling faceLearn about Sage Solutions Group of Livonia Michigan - smallarroSherri McDaniel

Sherri is a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources with extensive experience in all aspects of HR including corporate compliance, operations, and regulatory affairs. Sherri believes that to have sustained success, an organization must have a stable platform from which all functions flow. This means an organization must have strong processes, robust policies and a tenacious focus on its’ people. This focus on processes, policies and people is Sage’s guiding philosophy, which we call the Stability Pyramid. When any of the three are deficient or under-developed, areas such as accountability, efficiency and employee engagement suffer. 

For nearly 3 decades, Sherri has used the Stability Pyramid as the guiding philosophy to assist a multitude of organizations to improve not only each aspect of their platform, but their bottom line as well.  This is irrespective of industry as Sherri has proven success in a variety of business sectors such as Health Care (rehabilitation, professional practices), Construction (heavy, residential and commercial), Manufacturing (light and heavy), Technology (Engineering, High Tech and Automotive), Information Technology, Retail (small and large), and Public Sector (local municipalities).  She also has experience with for profit, not-for-profit as well as union or non-union entities.

Sherri believes a well-functioning HR department contributes so much more than simply hiring and exiting employees and planning company parties. She knows this department is where company policy, strategy, and employees intersect to ensure all are aligned to drive the company’s success.
