Customer Reviews

I really appreciate the content of the ACCR’s HR Update. In the email format, it has been great! It comes automatically and it is short and concise. If there is a topic we are interested in, it is expandable to the full article. The topics are always up to the minute and applicable. With all the P/R applicable items to deal with this last year, the articles with links have been a real time-saver. These are issues that usually take so much time to research and gather the right forms. Your articles, with links to forms or rules or sample notices have been great. They are usually posted just as it is time to start looking at those items! I have gotten to a point, where I look for each posting and read it carefully. I know is it usually going to contain a topic I will need soon.

It minimizes the time I spend researching issues in a number of other resources for both my internal and external clients. I have trust and confidence in the information shared.

at Ollis & Co. Business Consulting Division, , Missouri
HRsimple describes this site exactly. It is easy to navigate, straight forward information, and has reliable and diverse information. In my busy job, it is essential that I am able to access information that is trustworthy, specific to my state in a quick and simple fashion.

I love HRsimple because the humor used brightens my day yet offers valuable information on HR.

at Guardian Angel Settlement Association, , Missouri

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.

Customer Reviews

I really appreciate the content of the ACCR’s HR Update. In the email format, it has been great! It comes automatically and it is short and concise. If there is a topic we are interested in, it is expandable to the full article. The topics are always up to the minute and applicable. With all the P/R applicable items to deal with this last year, the articles with links have been a real time-saver. These are issues that usually take so much time to research and gather the right forms. Your articles, with links to forms or rules or sample notices have been great. They are usually posted just as it is time to start looking at those items! I have gotten to a point, where I look for each posting and read it carefully. I know is it usually going to contain a topic I will need soon.

at Guardian Angel Settlement Association, , Missouri

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.
