HR Agency New York
Throughout his 25 years in construction management, Jim Belliveau has encountered business people consistently struggling with the basic nuts and bolts of managing employees – payroll, workers comp, labor law issues, and employee benefits. In 1989, Jim founded Acadia HR, capitalizing on the profound need for a business operations solution to employment.
Professional Employer Organizations (PEO), also known as staff leasing companies, established the foundation of a growing industry by providing effective and integrated solutions to human resources management. Acadia HR was one of the first professional employers in New York State. Headquartered in Red Hook, NY, Acadia HR grew in size and prominence. Jim also was fortunate to have served on the Board of Directors of the New York State Staff Leasing Association. By 1994, Acadia HR accomplished several strategic hires of professionals with specific HR management expertise, experience and backgrounds. This vital, energetic core of Acadia HR staff handily served the complex needs of a growing customer base while facing a rapidly multiplying volume of state and federal labor laws and regulations.
