Our Frequently Asked Questions
No. Catapult is an employers’ association, dedicated to supporting and empowering forward-thinking organizations. We provide resources and expertise in organizational development, benefits, recruiting, HR compliance and operations, and other areas that augment and expand member companies’ HR teams. We can, however, partner with your current HR team through short- and long-term engagements focused on areas where you need support and assistance. To find out how we can help, call us at 1 (866)-440-0302.

Catapult’s members have free access to some of our most popular and vital resources, including our unlimited HR advice and employment law advice, employee handbook review, an HR organizational assessment, annual research reports and benchmarking data, and member roundtables and networking events. Other services, such as background checking, recruiting, HR technology, and benefits administration, are available at discounted rates.
Your annual membership dues are just a fraction of what it would cost for your company to hire a full-time, mid-level HR professional. In return, you gain access to 24/7 HR advice, unlimited employment law advice, 7 annual research reports, an employee handbook template and review, and members-only educational and networking events. And that’s just the beginning!
The benefits you receive quickly outpace the cost of membership. For example, you’ll receive access to all 7 of our annual research reports, including the National Wage and Salary Survey, NC Healthcare Benefits and Cost Survey, and NC Policies and Benefits survey—a $7000 value—for free. And the unlimited employment law advice is a tremendous benefit when you consider the average employment lawyer in North Carolina charges $300 per hour.
With membership, you gain access to a team of HR experts that partner with you to help your team reach new heights. When you consider the cost of just a few hours with an attorney or the months of time you’d need to invest in benchmarking compensation standards for your industry, the value of Catapult membership is clear.
Companies join Catapult, not individual employees. When your organization becomes a member company, you’ll designate a team member as the main point of contact within your organization. They will receive our communications and can access the resources and benefits of membership to disseminate throughout your organization. That person also may designate other members of the team to access member benefits or simply receive our member alerts.
Because companies join Catapult, not individuals, membership remains with the company. If you accept a new position at another organization and they are not yet a member, we hope you’ll share your positive Catapult experiences with the leadership team and explain why they should consider membership.
Most of our add-on services—which members receive at a discount—are available to organizations outside of membership. However, the HR Advice Team helpline and the free and unlimited employment law advice are available only to members, as are select events, peer roundtables, and Catapult Unplugged networking events.
