“Erik and HR Fit were referred to me by a friend when I was dealing with an acute HR issue.  While I engaged Erik for his compliance expertise, he also brought integrity, insight, and practicality.  In the years since, I continue to seek Erik’s counsel for a host of HR and non-HR matters.  He has become a trusted advisor and friend who strengthens our business and its leaders.”

“I have worked with HR Fit on several occasions for two different companies. I have always been impressed with the thoroughness and professionalism that Erik and his staff have displayed. We wanted to invest more in our line leads and help them become stronger leaders. We thought bringing in an outside source would help the employees be more honest in their discussions. HR Fit was the perfect solution. Our leads learned effective communication, navigating change, how do handle difficult situations, along with many other tools they can use on the job. The feedback from the participants was overwhelmingly positive and we plan on using the HR Fit team in the future.”

“HR Fit helped coach, guide, and assist onboarding me in my new HR role. I found the overview of employment law, compliance guidelines, and regulatory issues to be especially helpful. The expertise and knowledge shared left me more confident to handle situations if they were to arise at my company. Being an HR department of one can pose some unique challenges, but HR Fit is always there for me if I need any additional guidance, support, or expert advice. HR Fit has become an invaluable resource in my toolbox, ensuring my own professional success as well as the organization’s. Working with HR Fit, you are not simply purchasing a professional service; you are hiring someone who genuinely cares. To feel supported not only professionally, but also personally was an amazing experience. I look forward to my continued relationship with HR Fit and will always recommend Erik to others who are in need of HR support.”

“HR Fit has been an incredible resource for CASA. We are a small employer and can’t afford having a human resources professional on-staff. Erik has guided us through our HR challenges with prompt, sound advice.”

“Our company has been working with HR Fit for more than two years — we are very happy to have partnered with Erik to enhance our HR practices.

“HR Fit is the solution to all your HR needs. EP!C has had the pleasure of working with Erik over the past year to develop and present a supervisory leadership training program for our organization.

“Working with Erik to customize an effective supervisory training program has been such a positive experience. Erik has taken the time to listen and to understand our agency’s needs in collaboration with current policies and procedures, as well as ensuring our supervisors understand the importance of their actions and how they impact our agency. Erik is very engaging and has a way of making the participants feel at ease, which encourages excellent discussions and makes for an amazing learning experience.

“His knowledge, passion, and commitment to provide effective resources has gone beyond our expectations. I without a doubt would highly recommend Erik for all and any HR needs.”

Eric Sutter,
Senior Vice President of Human Resource

SERVPRO of Peoria and North Central Tazewell County

“I’d like to share how happy that I am that we found HR Fit and have had the opportunity to work together. HR is one of the topics everyone wants to stay clear of for sure, but Erik’s input is always very helpful and informative.

“Every time I have ever engaged Erik on any topic, he has been all over giving me the answers or helping me find who we need to have involved to ensure we are compliant, and the situation is handled correctly and efficiently. I have been extremely impressed in Erik’s approach and understanding of how the HR portion must be handled. Erik is a true blessing to a company such as mine that doesn’t have a full HR staff that still needs to stay compliant.

“Erik’s knowledge of the HR field is second to none, in my opinion. I would recommend HR Fit to anyone who needs guidance of the day-to-day portion of the HR world or that has a situation come up that needs good, timely, and professional guidance. Erik is hands down the best HR resource I have found in my 18 years of business. We look forward to our continued relationship in the years to come.”

Erik at HR Fit came in and did a full analysis of our policies and procedures, strengthening our operations and helping our staff find ways to run more efficiently. His professionalism and knowledge were refreshing. I would not hesitate to call Erik again when I am in a bind.”
