Liz Gulick, Co-President/CEO, Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona

“I have known Igor for almost 14 years now and have found him to be the expert on compensation. We have worked with HR Know since its inception and the information provided has been invaluable in helping us create our compensation structure and then adhering to that structure in subsequent years. HR Know has also worked with us on our Executive Compensation structure conducting national research and providing us information on best practices and industry trends. They are wonderful to work with and are a valued partner for our HR department.”

Karyn Howard, Managing Director, The American Board of Radiology

“Kellee and Igor are wonderful to work with! They are both very responsive and have quickly turned around short-notice requests for benchmarking critical positions. They have handled the benchmarking on single positions as well as multiple companywide benchmarking. They are local and very knowledgeable of our industry and this area. Easy to work with and reasonably priced. I would recommend them to anyone looking for compensation studies and benchmarking.”

Ciria Soto, SPHR-CP, PHR, Director of Human Resources, Arizona Mining

 “HR Know is thorough and competent in meeting our very demanding compensation requirements. In our unique requests related to our positions, they have been very accommodating. We also appreciate their expertise in providing us recommendations on our hierarchy, job requisitions, and how they formulate their recommendations into the operations of our organization. We are very excited to utilize the tools and resources they have provided in order for us to make fair, consistent, and market-driven job offers. They worked on a compensation review of all our positions to review parity within the incumbents in our positions, which we are implementing this year! We appreciate all their efforts and outstanding customer service, and a great turnaround time to our requests!  Thank you HR Know (Kellee & Igor) for the collaborative efforts in helping EL Rio break boundaries with your support and expertise!”
