Holiday Inn Express & Suites

I can’t thank you enough for the recent Zoom training session focused on Health and Safety policies and more importantly around employee recalls due to Covid-19 and the challenges hotels face. Our Department Heads left the session well informed and confident knowing what we can and can’t do during this unprecedented time with our hotel industry. It would be my pleasure to highly endorse this well timed session as a game changer.

Our relationship with Platz & Associates and affiliate HR/IR 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 HR/IR Satellite tools and Platz and Associates consulting to any organization seeking to navigate the increasingly complex minefield that we know as HR.
