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!!!

We take great pride in being able to offer quality products and services to our members. The Maine Human Resources Manual is an outstanding product, and it will go a long way in helping Maine businesses operate more efficiently and avoid costly mistakes.

I love HRSimple because it keeps me up-to-date with changes in federal and state regulations and does it with a little humor. Not an easy task when you’re talking about regulations. Thank you for making me laugh.

at PowerPay, , Maine
The weekly emails are fun and informative. Generally speaking, there’s a little nugget of information that I take away after reading the newsletter. The attached articles and videos are great when you need more in depth information on a certain topic. I look forward to seeing them every week! Keep up the great work!

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.
