We develop organizations and leaders. Growing a business is challenging, and the people you hire will be the cornerstone of your success. But managing people is tough, and building an environment that drives long-term value doesn’t happen overnight. Craft HR Solutions is here to help develop your employees and organization, no matter where your company is in its life cycle. Whether it is employee coaching, talent assessment, organizational leadership, professional search, or HR outsourcing; we are here to help you navigate the challenges your business will face.
The Employment and Labor Law Team at McGuire, Wood & Bissette provides tailored, practical guidance for all of your employment-related needs, whether you are a manufacturing employer with more than 200 employees or a non-profit starting out with just five. Employers rely on us to handle all aspects of employee-relations issues. Our Employment and Labor Law Team can draft policies, procedures and contracts; provide compliance training, advice and audits; and represent you in front of governmental agencies and state and federal courts. Employment law is not one-size fits all. Instead, to provide comprehensive employment advice, we need to understand your business to help you manage one of its most important assets — your workforce.

Using the combined resources and buying power of each of our locations, we negotiate better rates and products with insurance providers, all in the service of our clients. We also serve several niche markets to provide specialty insurance products.
We were formed by a consortium of community banks in 1999, but we trace our roots as far back as 1896, serving the insurance needs of local communities. Though we have grown to be a full-service, independent insurance agency, we are still structured to provide local client support and service at each of our 21 offices throughout Virginia and North Carolina.
