Feedback From Past Manager Crash Courses

"I loved the HR Annie CrashCourse because it taught me a lot. I learned new ways to both improve the business I work for, but also how to improve myself as a manager. I will highly recommend HR Annie to other businesses."

"This training was inspirational and so instructive. While I can proudly say our company has very high standards when it comes to all things HR, management, and recruiting, the information received at this training was invaluable. Everything was interactive, engaging, with very open dialogue and well-timed."

"I feel more empowered to lead my team and feel very supported by the HR Annie team to manage all the HR scenarios that come my way."

"The topics covered were all very informative and applicable to my everyday work life. They broke down many complex scenarios into easily digestible steps. I’ve encouraged my boss to send more people on the team to this training!"

"I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot. It helped me put a lot of structure in place to ensure a consistent and fair experience for all employees."
