office move

We are excited to share that we will be relocating on December 7th, 2015 to our new office location at 415 Horizon Drive, Building 200, Suite 200, Suwanee, GA 30024. Our phone numbers, fax numbers, email addresses, and website will stay the same.

Our new location is less than 6 miles from our current place of business and is conveniently situated along the I-85 corridor. This space is an investment into providing more services, which includes a dedicated training center to host client specific trainings, management training seminars, as well as many other functions.

Please be assured that our operations and quality of service will not be affected by this move. Should you have any questions on the relocation, please do not hesitate to call us.

We Appreciate Our Clients!

During this season of thanksgiving, we want to honor and recognize all of our wonderful clients who have made our progress possible. We are proud to be able to serve you, your employees, and all of your business’ needs. From all of us here at HR Strategies, we’d like to say Thank You!

Employee Appreciation

The month of November is often thought of as the month to Give Thanks. As an employer, are you remembering to thank your employees and recognizing their achievements? Showing your employees appreciation for all they do can help boost productivity and morale, and that is always good for business! Here are just a few ways to Give Thanks to your employees this Thanksgiving season…

Treat your employee(s) to lunch

Hand written thank you notes for a personal touch

Awards: maybe a traveling trophy, a nice clock, any type of award that the employee can display in their office space.

Notice In Employee’s File: If an employer wishes to recognize an employee in this way, he should add the note, but also tell the employee he is doing so, so the employee knows he is appreciated.

Kudos Column: If your workplace has a newsletter, add a column where employees are recognized for outstanding efforts and achievements

Simple spoken words of Thanks can go a long way.

Gift Certificates

Implement an employee of the week program

Vacation – yes even a few hours of extra paid vacation time is a big reward for most employees

Ice Cream Sundae Party at the office

Night out at the ballpark for a team of employees

Give the employee a membership or subscription to a journal that relates to their work


Veterans Day

Today we thank all those who have served in the military to protect our freedom.


There are man y initiatives, both government and private, to encourage the hiring of recently returned veterans. These programs help families of soldiers who are working through the transition process between serving the country overseas to day to day civilian life. Many companies are launching campaigns to assist vets.

Tuesday Tip: Handbooks

A good employee handbook is an important tool in documenting your company policies, benefit programs, and expectations of the company – including acceptable and unacceptable behaviors and disciplinary measures.  Businesses need to make sure that the policies, procedures, and other material listed within their employee handbooks are not only consistent, but also in line with the many Federal and State rules and regulations regarding employment. It is imperative that employers continue to review their employee handbooks for policies that need to be revised or added.


HR Strategies is able to not only aide you in developing customized employee handbooks, but in developing the employee policies and procedures that go into the handbook.
