About Us

The Harding Group LLC was started by Marc Harding in the fall of 1994 as a Human Resource consulting firm with the purpose of providing HR services for small to medium- sized firms in northwestern Wisconsin.

Marc had 14 years of experience with Cray Research Inc. and wanted to remain in the area. Prior to Cray he was with two counties in administrative and human resource related jobs for more than 6 years. The firm has since evolved into a broader management consulting firm providing a variety of services to private, public and nonprofit organizations.  The services focus on improving organizational and individual performance. Marc expanded the scope of services in 1997 when he partnered with Thompson Consulting by providing career transition services and opening offices in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and Duluth, Minnesota.  In 2004 he added another suite of services by becoming a Strategic Business Partner with Profiles International, a firm that provides online assessment tools for talent management and organizational assessment. Another milestone was the inception of a Business Advisory Board service where small business owners assist each other as advisors.

Over the years a number of the firm’s clients have won numerous awards at the local, state and national level. The Harding Group, LLC is now servicing clients in multiple industry segments in the profit, nonprofit and public sectors. We have clients we have supported who maintain offices on both coasts and have supported international work.

Our extensive experience has taught us if all elements of an organization are in alignment, performance can be exceptional. These elements include: The business Plan, the right Organizational structure, the right People and the right Systems.

Our team today consists of as many as seven to ten multi-disciplined people who are selected specifically to work on each project based on the needs and the industry of the client. Their credentials can be viewed on the Who We Are section of the Harding Group LLC website.    


Mission: Provide exceptional services to our clients that increase their organizational or personal performance level.
