Community Action


A Friend in HR runs on the kindness of volunteer HR leaders who provide advice for workers who have nowhere to turn. Particularly designed to serve those with fewer resources, A Friend in HR believes that educating employees on employment matters also helps reduce inequity in the workplace.
