What Our Members Say

“Having worked with Kevin & Dorothy at HIR BC through some stressful times with a union, we found them to be very professional and a wonderful source of experience and knowledge when we needed it.

With their help, we were able to handle our HR related matters to conclusion with favourable results. It was a true pleasure to be part of the HIR BC team.”

President

“Even though I have a strong management background, HIR was of great help at the first unionized property I was responsible for. What could have been difficult issues were made much easier with the experienced labour relations pros at HIR.”

Morgan Chatry

VP of Product Development & Operations

Inntimate Inns

“With the vast field of HR, and continued change of legislation, there is no better solution than partnering with HIR. Their HR expertise fills the void that might otherwise require an in-house HR department. From daily operations, staffing, and, in particular, union negotiations, HIR has provided, on numerous occasions, excellent solutions to numerous challenges.

During our union negotiations, HIR was instrumental in moving the negotiations forward and ensuring a mutually beneficial result. It is a pleasure to work with such a valued group of people and I would recommend HIR to any hospitality business.”
