A passion for local businesses

With over a decade of management experience in the Human Resource Industry, Tracy Cole was named the top salesperson in 1999 for the largest PEO in the United States.

In 2003, utilizing her skills and passion for small business, Tracy took a big leap and founded Focus HR to service the needs of the local Tucson Business Community.

Tracy spent that first year hand-writing workers’ compensation policies on her dining room table and helping construction site employees fill out new-hire paperwork on the back of her pick-up truck. As a busy mom of two girls, Tracy worked tirelessly to get the business up and running. She was wearing a lot of hats and feeling quite scattered one day when her youngest daughter, Allie, said “Mom, if you just focus, you’ll be successful.”

And that’s how Focus HR got its name.

One of Tracy’s first hires was Payroll Specialist, Karina Cordova, who still works at the company today, 20 years later. Focus HR has since grown into a business of nearly 40 internal employees, and has onboarded over 24,000 employees for its clients in 47 states.


Focus HR serves clients in 47 states

Since 2003, we’ve helped 500+ Arizona small businesses with a better way to manage their HR, payroll, and benefits while staying compliant with ever-changing regulations. Our clients trust us and they know we have their back, that’s why we have a 98% client retention rate.
