Customer Reviews

The Village Library has a small ‘small business collection’ that was started with grant money to address the needs of the business community in our service area. Your company provides essential information and forms to provide vital information needed by these patrons. Another added plus is that you update this information when necessary. I have also found that your publications are reasonably priced, so you are a good resource for human resource information. You are a pleasure to do business with and I enjoy your contest!

at The Village Library of Morgantown, Morgantown, Pennsylvania
I am the Human Resources Manager for our company of over 900 employees. It is myself and my HR Generalist in my department to manage 37 departments and a lot of employee issues. This newsletter has helped me stay on track. I feel like this newsletter is another HR employee in my department sharing vital information. It has become part of our career and I look forward to the suggestions and reminders that are sent. It also reassures me that in a company with this many employees we are doing things correctly.

at Bear Creek Mountain Resort, Macungie, Pennsylvania
Your books have come in handy as a quick reference guide when questions arise. It’s much quicker than locating our HR consultant. THANK YOU!

at CAN DO, Inc., Hazleton, Pennsylvania
As the Director of Human Resources in a very fast paced unionized environment, the HR updates and annual manuals are extremely useful. Like most HR practitioners, I am a member of SHRM. I like to cross-reference from time to time and the Pennsylvania Human Resources Manual helps me do this quickly. It helps me be more confident in my decision-making. I highly recommend the Pennsylvania Human Resources Manual.

at Lehigh Valley Coca-Cola Bottling Co., Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
HR simple gives me up to date, useful information on key topics in a format that I can read quickly on a busy day. The links to more information ensures that if a topic is of immediate concern I can get a more detailed report. It is a nice service.

at CRS, , Pennsylvania
For me, I’m a big fan of the weekly HR Update, though. Love the info and especially the tone of the author. I’m guessing the author is a woman and I wish she worked in our company. We’d get a lot accomplished and have fun in the process.

at Bucks County Transport, Inc., , Pennsylvania
It’s so easy to read and very informative!

at Chambersburg Dental Associates, , Pennsylvania
I do enjoy keeping up with some of the HR issues which will impact my company, and not being an HR professional who is in charge of that aspect of the company, I can use all the help I can.

at Service Supply Corp., , Pennsylvania
In the challenging and ever-changing human resources regulatory environment, our members need accurate, up-to-date information they can find quickly in an easy to use format. HRsimple.com is a powerful online resource that provides the latest information, helping companies stay in compliance and avoid costly mistakes.

at Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
It is so easy to go on and find what I am looking for! Its a great reference when I'm fairly certain of an answer, but I just need a quick confirmation!

at Corle Building Systems, , Pennsylvania

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

The Village Library has a small ‘small business collection’ that was started with grant money to address the needs of the business community in our service area. Your company provides essential information and forms to provide vital information needed by these patrons. Another added plus is that you update this information when necessary. I have also found that your publications are reasonably priced, so you are a good resource for human resource information. You are a pleasure to do business with and I enjoy your contest!

at The Village Library of Morgantown, Morgantown, Pennsylvania
I am the Human Resources Manager for our company of over 900 employees. It is myself and my HR Generalist in my department to manage 37 departments and a lot of employee issues. This newsletter has helped me stay on track. I feel like this newsletter is another HR employee in my department sharing vital information. It has become part of our career and I look forward to the suggestions and reminders that are sent. It also reassures me that in a company with this many employees we are doing things correctly.

Your books have come in handy as a quick reference guide when questions arise. It’s much quicker than locating our HR consultant. THANK YOU!

at CAN DO, Inc., Hazleton, Pennsylvania
As the Director of Human Resources in a very fast paced unionized environment, the HR updates and annual manuals are extremely useful. Like most HR practitioners, I am a member of SHRM. I like to cross-reference from time to time and the Pennsylvania Human Resources Manual helps me do this quickly. It helps me be more confident in my decision-making. I highly recommend the Pennsylvania Human Resources Manual.

HR simple gives me up to date, useful information on key topics in a format that I can read quickly on a busy day. The links to more information ensures that if a topic is of immediate concern I can get a more detailed report. It is a nice service.

at CRS, , Pennsylvania
For me, I’m a big fan of the weekly HR Update, though. Love the info and especially the tone of the author. I’m guessing the author is a woman and I wish she worked in our company. We’d get a lot accomplished and have fun in the process.

at Bucks County Transport, Inc., , Pennsylvania
It’s so easy to read and very informative!

at Chambersburg Dental Associates, , Pennsylvania
I do enjoy keeping up with some of the HR issues which will impact my company, and not being an HR professional who is in charge of that aspect of the company, I can use all the help I can.

at Service Supply Corp., , Pennsylvania
In the challenging and ever-changing human resources regulatory environment, our members need accurate, up-to-date information they can find quickly in an easy to use format. HRsimple.com is a powerful online resource that provides the latest information, helping companies stay in compliance and avoid costly mistakes.

at Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
It is so easy to go on and find what I am looking for! Its a great reference when I'm fairly certain of an answer, but I just need a quick confirmation!

at Corle Building Systems, , Pennsylvania

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.
