We rely on Happy HR for human resource policy expertise as well as the coordination of our various benefit options. The depth and breadth of expertise provided by the principal, Narobi Melendez, was a critical part of our decision making process. The compassionate professionalism is another positive for the team at Happy HR! I can’t say that I am surprised but I am extremely pleased that my expectation of real time responses to inquiries has absolutely exceeded my expectations. This has been an incredibly difficult and time consuming transition. I knew I did not want to tackle this without the support of Happy HR; it was and remains a great decision for our organization!
