What others have said about this seminar:
“It was a good overview of HR and a nice introduction for someone new to HR.” – Lauren Brady, Kalamazoo County Government

“It was very informative and provided basic information for me. Created questions to bring back to colleagues as I am new to the world of HR.”

“I thought the program was good because sometimes it's hard to do a 101-type class when you have a varying degree of skill levels in the room. I thought the presenter did a great job at touching on the important key points without making the obvious stuff remedial, but letting the group discuss topics more in depth when necessary.”

“Years of experience and good presentation skills.” – Angela Boldrey, Willingham & Cote'
