Customer Reviews

The Texas Human Resources Manual is a low-cost essential for Texas businesses. Our members value the HR manuals as a quick resource for HR questions and issues that come up in the workplace.

at Texas Association of Business location, Austin, Texas
I wanted to let you know that the manuals are very helpful in the day-to-day operation of the HR world. They have personally been extremely helpful on difficult days, especially the Model Policies and Forms I have used them several times and plan to continue to use both of the books for reference.

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.

The Texas Human Resources Manual is a low-cost essential for Texas businesses. Our members value the HR manuals as a quick resource for HR questions and issues that come up in the workplace.

at Texas Association of Business location, Austin, Texas
I wanted to let you know that the manuals are very helpful in the day-to-day operation of the HR world. They have personally been extremely helpful on difficult days, especially the Model Policies and Forms I have used them several times and plan to continue to use both of the books for reference.

at Radiology, Inc., Paris, Texas

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.
