Hi, nice to meet you.
Employer’s Edge is a woman-owned HR consulting firm born out of a love for providing specialized solutions to unique, complex problems. While we are based in beautiful Colorado, we have worked with clients across the United States and provide expertise and solutions to state-specific challenges. Our main goal is to ensure your organization is functioning effectively, efficiently, and successfully, all while operating within compliance. Our promise is to serve our clients with integrity, compassion, objectivity, professionalism, and open-mindedness.
Paula Unger is the Founder and Chief Consultant of Employer’s Edge HR Consulting. She brings her clients the experience and judgement that comes from over two decades in the HR industry, as well as a sense of humor to everything she does. She has a love for people, processes, and ideas, and an intellectual curiosity that drives her to never stop learning.
Paula’s path has been a bit untraditional, as she had quite a few years of experience working in human resources under her belt before she decided to earn her degree. She received her bachelor’s degree in HR management with minors in psychology and communications from Regis University. She is also SHRM-SCP certified and serves on the board of Mile High SHRM.
A native Coloradoan, Paula loves all things Colorado, dogs, muscle cars, and sports. In her free time, you may spot her checking out a new hiking trail or joining her friends for a game or two of poker. That is, unless it’s football season, in that case Sundays (and Monday and Thursday nights) you will find her somewhere glued to a game (go Broncos!).
