Excellence Through Leadership Conference

"  I attended the Excellence Through Leadership Conference and  I will continue to support and attend their conferences. You and Charlie are providing such a needed support in this community.  I look forward to seeing you all in the near future.  I also look forward to receiving the survey".

Charlie and the team of professionals at Strategic HR Partners were instrumental in assisting our employees cope with the stress of the situation and providing the direction on to move forward with their careers after Carmike. This was critical in helping them individually, but also helped them keep their focus on the daily operations and critical business tasks that needed to be completed for the sale. It also was a life saver for the HR department so that we were not consumed with all of the individual concerns and could do our part in facilitating the transaction.

Pinpoint Regional Compensation & Benefits Survey

As a new HR Professional in the Columbus area I was surprised to find that key HR resources such as local salary surveys were not readily available. I was very pleased to find that Strategic HR Partners had also identified this gap in information and was working to bring together the individuals and technical resources to support this need. Not only is this useful for existing businesses, but is key information needed for attracting additional industry to the region to drive economic growth.

I recently retained Strategic HR Partners to conduct a search for a Vice President of Human Resources. Charlie immediately dove into the project and spent lots of time working to understand our organization, what we were looking for and the type of person we wanted for this newly created position. He then assembled a number of highly qualified candidates and coordinated all the interviews. Charlie also assisted in closing the deal and offering assistance on relocation.

We are pleased we now have the right person for this position and thank Charlie for all the help in filling this important role.

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.

Strategic HR Partners Outplacement and Transition Services

We recently had a reduction in force that affected many of our long term associates. We had never used your services before in handling what is a very delicate situation. You delivered.

Our associates that participated in your program have been very vocal in a positive way as to the assistance you have given them, in resume writing, interviewing techniques, and using your human resource and business networks to get them in front of hiring managers. When people lose their jobs their main focus needs to be on getting another one.You accomplished this with our people and have contributed greatly to 'them being successful in gaining employment elsewhere.

I would highly recommend Strategic HR Partners to anyone who is serious about giving their employees assistance through Outplacement and Transition Services.

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.

Excellence Through Leadership Conference

 "Thank you for a terrific Excellence Through Leadership Conference.  I sincerely appreciate all the work it took to pull together and the speakers were outstanding.  I took a bit of information back from each speaker that I can implement this week in my daily HR role. I took more than one from Margaret Morford's presentations"!

 The Conference Center and rooms at Great Wolf Lodge were very nice.  We thoroughly enjoyed the Lodge and have already planned to go back!

Thank you!
