Wanted to again extend my appreciation for the vast learning and detail for HR training the past two days; I am thrilled by the refresher and some key points that have me working towards re-structuring a few new policies to our Westaff branch.

The parking, location and venue were all fantastic and extremely efficient!! 

Thank you both (Mardi Noyes, Instructor and Tammy Anhalt-Warner, SCSU) for the warm welcome, education and networking capacity!!
