Strategic HR Partners Human Resource Certification Preparation Classes

I really enjoyed the preparatory classes that I attended with Strategic HR Partners for the SPHR and PHR exams. I myself and many members of my staff have used your program successfully and passed the exam. Your pass rate is extremely high, which is tribute to the materials and the instructors.

I definitely recommend your classes to anyone who is seriously interested in getting certified in Human Resources.

This letter is to tell you what a wonderful outcome I had at a recent class attended through Strategic HR Partners.  The classes scheduled were well planned and the timing was perfect for me to take advantage of on a weekly basis and not having to give up too much of my time from my work day. This was an 8-week program and each week was informative, well organized, superbly presented, pertinent to my job and role, and the class interaction was truly beneficial! Each class outline helped our group to prepare for the next week. There was time for review, and to reflect on what we learned from the previous class. Our homework was a way to help up implement new strategies and new ideas. I can honestly say this was one of the most enjoyable and helpful classes I have attended in a long time!

I highly recommend this class to other companies looking for a way to engage their supervisors and managers at all levels.

New supervisors and managers and people being considered for promotion to management will really benefit from attending these classes. But, these classes are also relevant for experienced managers to help them understand that the market place is ever changing and the need for excellent communication skills and management accountability are more important than ever.

Thank you and your team and wonderful colleague, Judy Giddings, for offering such a high caliber empowering program right here in our own backyard, Columbus, Georgia.

“I have known Charlie from the perspective of a service provider to his organizations when he was head of Human Resources at OCEDAR Brands and at Fujitec. The capabilities we were hired into involved taking a business from a private entity to a public offering or IPO, when I worked with Cooper’s and Lybrand. We also handled highly sensitive individual human resource issues including RIF’s (Lee Hecht Harrison). Charlie has strong knowledge of his field and builds strong business relationships with senior management team members. He knows what his expertise and capabilities are and understands when to utilize others with key expertise. His top qualities are personality, HR expertise, and high integrity.”

Organizational Development

“Charlie Little is the best all-around HR professional I’ve ever done business with in my 30+ year career. He can lead it all while creating a fun environment for the whole organization. Benefits, hiring, executive coaching, employee handbooks, employee relations, succession planning, senior management staffing and organizational development are all areas of his expertise. If you are looking for someone with exceptional Human Resource expertise, then Charlie is the person you need to consult.”

Employee Relations Union Avoidance

“From a professional perspective, I have witnessed Charlie’s ability to lead, mentor, teach and motivate associates from the board room to hourly new hires. An example of his abilities – walking into the very late stages of a Teamsters organizing effort in Ohio, Charlie turned around what was a slam dunk for the teamsters, to organize +500 associates, into a +87% Pro-Management vote in 90-days.

On a personal basis, I am proud to have him as my friend.
