Why us

The term “Human resources” has been captured in many different words over the years-personnel, employee relations, human capital, human assets, people resources, talent management, etc. Many organizations have elaborate HR departments, whereas most organizations have no HR department. But in all cases, there are employee relations matters that need to be addressed in some fashion, whether because of compliance matters or the ability to attract and retain qualified staff at all levels.

Simply put, it remains an employer/employee relationship irrespective of the words to associate with a department focussed on employees. And this relationship is grounded in law. Our online solutions are intended to support and not replace how an organization deals with its employees. They are intended to be easy to use and our price list is included on our site. You need never speak to an HR person associated with our site unless you have a specific need.

Platz and Associates Inc.

An alternative to the typical distribution of consulting, legal and in house specialization in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations, we strongly believe that every Manager is responsible for managing their "human resources". With that in mind, we provide Managers with direct access to the tools and resources they need, to effectively manage their employees and in doing so, reduce the associated risks of decision making related to employment. We are committed to developing long term working relationships with our clients.
