Working in a smaller company, we do not have a separate HR department so the duties fall to me, the senior accountant. Since this is not my area of expertise, your publications are an invaluable resource providing me with up-to-date information on current HR laws and regulations. Providing sample policies and insight into current issues facing companies such as social networking are the tools I need to make sure my company is in compliance and up to date.

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.

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.
