We Simplify HR and Payroll

As a local Texas HR and Payroll services company, we understand the complex compliance challenges Texas business owners face every day. Small and medium sized businesses hire us to implement our single HCM ecosystem for HR, Payroll, Timekeeping, and more. Our turn-key solution makes HR simple for you to administer, offers greater efficiencies, generates data to ensure legal compliance, and maximizes the return on your investment.

We Are Different

Easy Communication

If you're working with a company as big as ADP or PayChex, you could be lucky even just to get another human on the other end of the call. You could be waiting for hours. And even then, it's not local support.


No one knows the HR and Payroll intricacies like an experienced HR and Payroll professional. HRA was founded by an HR Executive with 20+ years of experience. When we say we know what you are going through, we mean it.

Consistent People

With HRA, you won't waste your time. We know you, you'll get to know us, and that consistency of working with the same person for years helps you take care of things quickly. It also builds trust.

Why Our Clients Love HRA

HR and payroll are vital to your business, so we want you to feel comfortable knowing that we are worthy of your trust.

Before I engaged The HR Ally (HRA), I lived with a chronic unease about the state of my HR function from a compliance standpoint and I was regularly plagued by issues that cropped up due to my lack of knowledge of best practices in the core HR functions. Within days of onboarding the team, I was already clear that I’d made a good decision. Within two weeks, all the issues I had collected were being addressed, and within four weeks, almost all open items were closed. I now live an HR-anxiety-free life thanks to my HRA team.

Knowledgeable, resourceful, and passionate are the words I would use to describe Jennifer from The HR Ally (HRA). Jennifer guided me and opened the door to many pieces of Compensation and Benefits that I would have probably not touched otherwise. Her expertise evolved the existing policies and plans.

The HR Ally (HRA) has an insight on how the market works and how it should drive the HR strategy as I have never seen before in any other HR professional. Jennifer provided manager training to explain to them how Compensation works. The feedback from managers was great. Topics she talked about included benchmarking, how the market works and how we get our information; what are the different FLSA status and how exemptions work, etc.

I learned a great deal from Jennifer at The HR Ally (HRA). After a recent merger of multiple companies across the US and Canada, the organization was disjointed and full of broken processes. Jennifer provided stability and patiently brought the company to a more organized state. She instilled in her team the importance of accuracy, research and analysis, consistency, and cooperation. She is not afraid of hard work and goes above and beyond to get the job done. I can confidently say she can tackle anything that comes her way.
