Testimonials

Your books and newsletters have helped me to run our company more efficiently. Our 150 employees and I appreciate your guidance by keeping us on the right track.

Gary Albright, President/CEO, Becker Tire & Treading Inc., Kansas, Great Bend


I am a HUGE fan of HRsimple! It is so easy to navigate and find the answer to my questions in the matter of a couple of clicks. I wear multiple hats for my employer and being responsible for Human Resources, Safety and Accounting I prefer to spend my time answering questions, not looking for them.

HRsimple makes my job easier; therefore, I love it, love it, love it!!!

Lynn Durost, HR/Accounting Manage, Rubb, Inc, Sanford, Maine


hrsimple.com 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
