Testimonials

I’ve had many occasions to use the materials purchased from ACCR. I enjoy the fact that they come both electronically and in hard copy. I keep the electronic copy on my desktop and find it very user friendly. I usually just search for a word in the document and just like that, I have my answer. The hard copy is nice for traveling or just looking things up the old fashioned way. The layout is very handy. Overall, I’ve been very pleased with my purchases thus far. The information is easy to find and the books are very easy to read.

Bill Pinegar, SPHR, Human Resources Consultant, Kiesling Associations, Des Moines, Iowa


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


I’m relatively new to ACCR’s HR Update email service but must say thus far, it’s the greatest! I think it’s safe to say that all HR professionals are pressed for time but are also interested in keeping in step with changes as they happen, so when ACCR provides a brief snapshot on various topics of interest, it’s quick and easy reading, and greatly appreciated! Should something of special interest appear, just a point and click brings up an informational brief, right at my fingertips! Thanks so much for the service!
