“I wanted to create a company that enhances the workplace experience for both leadership and employees alike in small and emerging companies. That means developing a company that helps leaders align business strategy to talent strategy and creates a culture that promotes high employee engagement. We do this by applying creative HR leadership strategy with efficient outsourced HR administration that allows our clients to get more HR while doing [and paying] less.” says Price

Joey received his bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from University of Maryland-College Park, but decided to change his career path, and upon graduating, pursued his Master’s degree in Human Resources Management and Development from the University of Maryland University College. While education has played a major role in his success, Price offers that his first job as a one-hour photo attendant/cashier at CVS honed his leadership and customer service skills.
A self-proclaimed “HR nerd,” Price maintains that personal branding is a huge part of the success of Jumpstart:HR. “My personal brand has evolved to what it is today because I've just figured out what makes me different, worked on both my self-awareness and emotional intelligence and surrounded myself with mentors and peers who push me to become a better person.”
With a strong work ethic and supportive network, Joey understands that a healthy work-life balance is also key to his success. In his downtime, Price travels, listens to music, and even plays the bass guitar. His life quote is that of Steve Prefontaine-“
