HPI has truly been an invaluable partner for us. I would highly recommend their services. Over the years, they have guided our HR team with best practices and supported hundreds of our employees through mergers, acquisitions and various reductions in force. While many of our employees have benefited from their 1:1 services, those who participated in group discussions consistently provided feedback that they left feeling as though they had received individualized assistance. HPI provides support during one of the most difficult transitions a company and employee can face. They foster a supportive environment in which employees can work through a wide spectrum of emotions and help channel those feelings into positive, career advancing action plans.
