Reviews WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT US

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

Our company does not have an official Human Resources Department. I have what is known as *hands on* H.R. training. Your human resource publications have guided me through many issues such as I-9, FMLA and policy book. The money I spend for the publications each year have more than paid for themselves.

Keith W. Brown VP Marketing and Human Resources, S&S Food Stores, Lake City, Florida

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.

The Employee's Benefits Guide is particularly helpful because the institution strives to provide the best quality benefits to attract and retain valuable employees; and one way to do this is to have a thorough knowledge and understand of how to make these benefits work for the employees.
