Our relationship with Platz & Associates and affiliate HRIR Satellite Inc., has been a productive one over many years.  We have found consulting services whether for recruiting, strategic review or drafting of Human Resources Policy Manuals and collective agreements to be of a high calibre.  The Employment Advisory Service provides us immediate and direct access to para-legal advice that helps us ensure compliance and mitigate risk for all HR matters.  Platz & Associates knowledge of employment Law keeps us on top of changes, and their emphasis on “Industrial Relations” means that we have pro-actively worked to build trusted relations with our labour force.  The Employee Satisfaction Survey and other tools help us anonymously monitor the climate or mood of our workforce.

I recommend HRIR Satellite tools and Platz and Associates consulting to any organization seeking to navigate the increasingly complex minefield that we know as HR.
