Mission Statement

Concept H.R. will rank first in providing benefits to clients rather than first in size, valuing quality of client over quantity of clients. We are devoted to the highest degree of service and professionalism in order to retain long lasting relationships with our clients.


Concept HR Midwest was formed in 2012 by Tom Conroy. In the early 1990′s Tom worked for a national payroll company for five years. He later went on to be an owner of a small business in another field. After processing his payroll for 25 employees with another national payroll provider, Tom was referred to Concept HR by a friend who utilized Concept HR services. Due to a lack of service and attention to his needs Tom became a client. Four years after being a satisfied customer, Tom made an investment to become a regional partner of Concept HR.

While our presence in the midwest is recent, Concept HR has been in business since 1998. Our software partner is based in Ohio so we are always current with local, state, and federal tax law changes. Together we help hundreds of clients accurately pay employees, pay and file payroll taxes, assist with human resource consulting and guidance, as well as provide ancillary solutions such as, time and attendance, 401k plans, and benefits.

“Having worked directly for and being a client of the two largest payroll providers in the United States, I realized something was missing. The focus of these companies is more about gaining new clients and less about keeping the ones they have. A sales rep of a national payroll company has no incentive to help or call on an existing customer. As a customer, I felt like I was in a payroll factory. When problems arose it was hard to get a hold of someone to resolve my issues in a timely manner. I left a lot of emails and voicemails and had very little direct, live contact.”

“Working with Concept HR was a night and day difference from working with a large company. I felt like the folks at Concept HR were a part of my business. While they were not in my office, the response and value they brought to my business was what I would expect from a direct employee. This level of satisfaction caused me to invest in the company and bring their services to Ohio.”

“The greatest satisfaction I receive is when I tell a prospective customer my story and later on after they have been a client they tell me they have had the same experience as me.”
