Arizona Pro

Keeping up with federal and state employment regulations is complex work for any business -- but good human resources guidance can help employers steer clear of costly lawsuits. Fortunately, the Arizona Pro is available. For years, the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry HR Library has helped employers and HR personnel find answers quickly. The Arizona Pro is a comprehensive, plain English resource that helps you manage employees from pre-hire through post-termination. Written in plain English, it is authored by top labor lawyers, so you know you can trust the guidance. The Arizona Pro Compliance Library allows users to download and customize hundreds of policies and forms; maintain proper employee personnel files; and create or bolster your employee handbook. When a federal or state labor law or regulation changes, the library is updated -- and you'll receive an e-mail notice so you can easily determine what, if any, changes you need to make. Extra bonus include the HR Update (a weekly newsletter with news and trends) and webinars worth credit towards SHRM-CP/SCP and HRCI certifications.

    The HR Update has been a valuable resource for me in that it provides timely updated legal information that keeps me on top of my game. There have been many times when I have forwarded the information to our President and management team to increase their awareness without having to take the time to hold a meeting.

, HR Manager, Abrams Airborne Manufacturing, Tucson, Arizona

    Your books are so easy to read and understand. They are written in layman’s terms, which makes it easy for the HR team to apply to everyday situations. And the books are always up to date with the latest labor law information to help keep companies out of trouble.

    Debbie Laspisa, Vice President Human Resources, Arizona Mail Order Company, Tucson, Arizona

    I love HRsimple, It totally helps with HR issues.

    Amanda Bottoms, Bookkeeper/personnel, Uptown Drug, Arizona

    This is my first job with real HR responsibilities and I have no idea where to start. Your newsletter makes me so happy, because HR is fun! But really, I appreciate the humor and insight. I want to work where you work. I have been able to rewrite our employee manual based on the rules/regulations/tips I’ve found, and I appreciate it.

    Janece Bertolino, Office Manager, William T. Jenkins Landscape and Irrigation, Arizona

    I love HRsimple because it simplifies the laws and policies. I enjoy the weekly emails and the ease of finding the information online.

    Colleen Fredrickson, Benefits & Payroll, Solutionary, Arizona

    I LOVE the easy-to-use HR library offered online at I have used it numerous times to update our handbook, guarantee we are handling employee matters correctly, and so much more.

    Victoria Miller, Human Resource Manager, Arizona

    The Arizona Human Resources Manual should be on every Arizona business’ bookshelf. Our members value the manual’s easy-to-use format for answering HR questions and addressing issues that come up on a regular basis in the workplace. I recommend having the Arizona Human Resources Manual at the ready for up-to-date information to help guide your personnel matters.

    Glenn Hamer, President and CEO , Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Phoenix, Arizona

    I have been in Human Resources for over 30 years.  "Performance Management Strategies: Finding Common G.R.O.U.N.D." was one of the best presented, arranged, and informative webinars I have ever participated in.  I wish my whole crew of supervisors and managers could have participated in it.  However, with the information I received and the way it was laid out, I hope that I will be able to mock the presentation for them. You and Jamie did an excellent job in presenting this in a clear, distinctive way that was interesting and was never boring. 

    Dena Smith, Heartland EMS, Inc.

    It’s just as it claims to be: SIMPLE! With 18 years of experience, one can imagine that I have collected some resources over the years and at this point, hauling a library of books from home to office to client site, is not efficient nor practical. With so much information in one site, I save time and energy researching, which is of great value to me. All of the material is written in plain English, not the legalese of many other so-called resources!

    Lisa Gale, PHR, HR Director, HR Betty, Phoenix, Arizona

    These books have been a godsend! Although I have an extensive background in HR, these manuals provide up-to-date information on tricky subjects such as the ADA and Employee Leave guidelines. It is like having a handy *cheat-sheet* when I need to find the right answers and quickly.

    Lauren Maciag, MBA/HRM, HR Coordinator, Sirona Infusion, LLC, Chandler, Arizona is a must-have not only for HR professionals in the state, but for labor and employee relations professionals, employment lawyers and small business owners. It is comprehensive in scope, addressing the many legal and compliance issues that face employers from recruiting to retirement. Yet, despite the wide range of issues covered, and the complexity of those issues, information is easy to find and comprehend, avoiding much of the legal-speak that can often be difficult to interpret.

    John A. Challenger, Chief Executive Officer, Challenger, Gray & Christmas, Inc., Chicago, Illinois
