Our Mission

We shall support clients meeting their objectives by providing professional, timely service and the highest quality product to client businesses in the subjects of personnel management, management skills training, personnel policies and legal compliance issues.

Our Goal Commitment

  • Deliver more than we have promised, or deliver earlier than expected by the client.
  • Repair any misunderstandings so the client has the advantage.
  • Deliver timely service, recognizing that service which is too late, isn't of much service.

Our History

Since 1987, we have been serving clients in California and across the country. We specialize in the unique legal compliance requirements related to managing employees in today's work environment. Our firm has worked with employer organizations ranging in size from those which are very small to those among the Fortune 500. Our focus is on issues associated with labor code requirements, equal opportunity laws, affirmative action regulations and the management skills necessary to meet those requirements.

Our consulting services include expert witness work for some of the country's top law firms. We investigate employee discrimination complaints and recommend remedies where appropriate. We develop and explain affirmative action programs for clients across the country. We assist them in many cases with implementation training for executives and managers. We also provide on-site consulting support for Department of Labor compliance reviews of affirmative action programs. One-on-one executive and employee coaching is another of our specialties. Sexual harassment prevention is often the subject.

We would be pleased to serve you by helping you reach your objectives.
