How Objective Area Solutions is using GovConPay’s HR Advisor and iSolved technology to reach their full potential.

Objective Area Solutions (OAS) is a management consulting firm that provides specialized consulting services to public sector aviation, transportation, and defense programs to improve operational performance, decrease costs, and mitigate risk. Their staff has extensive operational backgrounds from the municipal through federal level to strengthen the quality, reliability, and impact of their client’s programs. OAS is a service-disabled veteran-owned small business.


OAS started out with four employees, but owner J.J. Stakem knew his business was primed for near-term growth. He acknowledged that he wanted to focus on his business and needed some assistance with HR strategy, process, fundamentals, and documents as his business grew.


OAS embraced GovConpay’s HR Advisor offering and added other beneficial services available within iSolved. With HR Advisor supporting the business, they grew from 4 to 16 employees in the span of a few months. They hired an Office Manager to handle HR and payroll. With iSolved Hire, they tightened up their recruiting process and optimized their job postings to attract top talent. The HR Advisor team addressed their benefits administration and HR needs while providing guidance and unlimited HR support. Objective Area Solutions now has an entire HR team to help them if and when situations arise. They helped update their employee handbook, PTO policies, corrective action, orientation checklists and onboarding, application and new hire forms for VA/DC/MD, transit plans, job descriptions, records retention, performance management, ADA, harassment and performance training, and I-9 processes.


GovConPay’s HR Advisor team helps clients stay compliant, save money, save time, optimize iSolved, and permits the client to focus on their employees and business strategy.

“GovConPay’s HR Advisor services and iSolved solutions has provided a one-stop shop for our human resources needs, including recruiting and onboarding, as well as day-to-day support for company operations. Their technology is seamless and extremely well integrated, and their knowledge is unparalleled. The services are very scalable and have been a critical value as our company has grown.”
