Client Testimonials

  • This letter is being submitted in support of AlignHR, LLC and their role as a Human Resource business partner for our center. Holy Family Child Care & Development Center, Inc.  is a full-service early care and education facility that provides high-quality, developmentally appropriate environments for children ages 6 weeks through the time they begin kindergarten. We have been in business for nearly 34 years. Holy Family has been in contractual relationship with AlignHR since February 2016.  We have found Zachary Abraham and Janelle Friedline to be very knowledgeable of the ever-changing compliance requirements in the human resource field.  They have provided much needed advice in a timely fashion, whether it is through a face-to-face meeting, email or phone conversations. This speaks to their flexibility and commitment to helping a small business succeed. Zach and Janelle have strived to continue to provide our center with excellent support, all the while staying within our limited budget. They both have demonstrated the highest level of professionalism, but yet understanding the unique needs of our center and expressing a genuine desire to see our important mission of service to continue. In closing, I highly recommend AlignHR for support of your Human Resource needs.  You will not be disappointed.

    Michele Forsythe, Executive Director - Holy Family Child Care and Development Center

  • The Rural Emergency Trauma Institute (RETI) has been working with AlignHR since 2015.  RETI needed professional leadership in the human resources field to evaluate compliance and a well thought out HR program.  Over the last couple of years, we have refined our employee handbook, improved the quality of our job descriptions, and are now completing an employee  performance system that will move us forward.  All this through the collaboration with AlignHR's leadership group. I have personally known two of AlignHR's founding members professionally for many years.  They both come to their business with many years of professional development and valuable reputations.  

    Kris Molnar, Executive Director - Rural Emergency Trauma Institute

  • "In September 2016, we engaged Align HR (“Align") for assistance with selecting a performance management system.  Our interest in a performance management system was the result from one of the recommendations from a recent classification and compensation study (“study”) that was performed on our non-uniform service positons.  Due to our aggressive timeline and our priority on implementing other aspects and recommendations from the study, we needed some help with respect to the performance management system.  We reached out to Align and explained our circumstances, and they were willing and able to assist us, and were sensitive to our timeline.  We provided Align with our desired specifications, and they in turn researched and provided us with an initial list of six (6) performance management systems to review.  Align arranged for us to see demonstrations of the six systems and ultimately provided us with a detailed comparison of the six systems.  We ended up selecting the system Align recommended.  We could not be any happier with the services provided by Align, as they exceeded our expectations on this project."  

    Charles Thompson, Director of Human Resources - City of Charleston, WV

  • “Zach and Janelle were a perfect fit for our company culture, quickly becoming part of our team. They helped guide us through many facets of our business, including Human Resources, Training & Development, and Systems Implementation. With their knowledge and guidance, we’ve been able to take our Human Resource department to the next level. Thanks, AlignHR!”

    Joselinne Spertina, HR Manager - J&B Entities

  • As a non-profit organization providing on-the-job training services for people with significant disabilities, successful outcomes rely on the abilities of our on-the-job supervisors working with our program participants.  PACE engaged AlignHR to develop and deliver supervisor training, with the expectation that our limited training dollars would be effectively spent. Sharon Boyce-Werdebaugh and Bernie Deem of AlignHR brought us customized training that addressed the specific challenges of managing and improving job performance in our unique environment. I found their initiative to review each training session and further customize the next in the series from current issues to be particularly effective. PACE would recommend AlignHR training services to other non-profits looking to take their services to the next level.

    Melissa Basden, Director of Human Resources PACE Enterprises

  • It’s comforting knowing that you and your company are available for our “off the wall” HR questions.  These may be easy questions for you, but with each passing year, more and more HR compliance issues arise.  And with no Human Resource professional aboard, it becomes challenging on our part. Thanks again Sharon for the information.  It’s always a pleasure dealing with you.

    George Pollock, Controller City Construction Company, Inc.

  • I am writing to offer my appreciation to you and your team of professionals at AlignHR, LLC for the outstanding service you have provided to our firm and our brother/sister company, Omni Strategic Technology over the last several years.  You and your team have added value to our Human Resources (“HR”) initiatives by allowing us to focus on our core competencies while you and your team focus on the many aspects of HR management that require the comprehensive understanding your team possesses.  We are thankful for your value-added service provided to us, including these significant tasks: • Regulatory and statutory changes where we are required to be compliant • Thought leadership for employee relations and disciplinary discussions • Employee review process design and analysis of employee population findings • Offers of employment communications • Consultation regarding employee staffing models and job descriptions • Employee Manual design and review • New employee orientation program design and presentation of various topics • Benefit design, compliance assessment and renewal negotiations with insurance brokers and carriers as we have requested • Employee separation process design and implementation • Analysis of employee classifications – exempt and non-exempt • Employee benefit recordkeeping and payroll/HRIS service provider assessment and selection • Conducting manager/supervisor training on Legal Hiring Zach, in addition to these specific HR skills, we are also appreciative of your general business knowledge and sensitivity to the many detailed differences that exist among the various states wherein we do business.

    William R. Shipley, CAO - McKinley Carter WS/Omni Strategic Technologies

  • Zach Abraham has been an excellent partner over the past year in developing procedures and processes for our Human Resources needs. As we navigate the ever-changing world of legislation regarding insurance, employee standards and best practices, AlignHR has offered tools and resources to aid in the process. We gladly recommend the services of Zach Abraham and AlignHR to organizations looking for a professional, yet personal partner, in the arena of Human Resources.

    Julie Meredith, Executive Director - The Vineyard Church

  • Thanks so much.  Regarding the questions I went through last night with the 1st interview, the last question you sent seemed odd to ask about ‘what did you find unfair at your previous employer?’ actually turned out to give a good picture into the guys previous employment and why he was let go.  So thanks for the help with questions. I really appreciate all your help and answering my questions, it has been a long process.  I want to do things right and know it will pay off in the end, so I’m glad we have AlignHR in our corner.

    Heather Williams Xcel Service & Repair

  • Sharon, from our first meeting with you, it was abundantly clear that our very best solution was to engage you and your firm to assist FCX with all of our human resources needs. With your guidance, we completed a thorough HR audit - the results of which were most helpful in guiding us in the right direction, reissued a much more comprehensive and appropriate employee handbook, and completed our AAP. AlignHR provided us with superior human resources support at a fraction of the cost of a full-time employee with benefits. We are a better company because of our relationship with you and AlignHR.

    Craig Walker, President & CEO - FCX Systems

  • AlignHR (formerly DeemHR) has been a great resource for our organization for the past several years. Any time there is a question regarding HR policy, laws, or upcoming changes, we can count on the employees at AlignHR to quickly provide us with the information we need. They have also helped us connect with other HR professionals in our industry and have established relationships in which sharing best practices and experiences is easy and fun. It’s nice having someone you can count on for assistance when things get “muddy”.

    William A. “Bill” Loving, Jr., CLBB, President / CEO Pendleton Community Bank

  • I am writing to you today to express our appreciation for your support and services.  After we met with you to conduct our Human Resources Audit we knew right away we wanted you to be our next business partner.  Your audit was not only extremely thorough but the results were easy to understand and made our ability to prioritize that much easier.  After bringing you on as our business partner and human resources department, we have gained a better understanding of human resources practices and know we can count on you any time of day or night to answer our questions.  You are reliable and compassionate, which truly do align with our culture and philosophy of care. 

    Michelle Hopkins, Administrator of Operations - Reliable Healthcare Solutions

  • Align HR has been a strategic Human Resource Partner for CP Hospitality for three years. In the Hospitality business understanding the different complexities that help us operate a successful business externally are equally as important to our internal operations. Sharon Werdebaugh and Align HR get that. Support and programming that have helped shape a positive environment for one of our most important assets….our people….. is why we have chosen to build a relationship with Align HR

    Scott D. Duarte - Bridgeport Conference Center,GM

  • I was unsure about the services that would be offered when I first spoke to Sharon about hiring AlignHR to assist in updating our Human Resources systems at Advantage Health & Wellness, PLLC. It was always easier for me to delegate HR and assume it was handled appropriately by my management team. When I had some turnover in the management department of my office, I was forced to focus on this area of my business and was overwhelmed. It did not take much time for me to realize that AlignHR's team of professionals knew how to help my company. We have greatly improved our compliance and procedures for properly managing our company's most valuable asset... its people. In addition, we are seeing much greater productivity as a team secondary to Align HR helping to better define our company and its product so that our staff can act as a team rather than individuals. As a former athlete, I love that and appreciate what it means for everyone involved... especially to produce the best results for our patients! I recommend AlignHR and their wonderful team of professionals to any business in any industry. 

    Kevin Trembush, DC/CEO - Advantage Health & Wellness

  • I have hired Sharon for my small business on several occasions with WesMar and now AlignHR. She has been an excellent source of information on human resources laws and regulations; AlignHR has been a critical resource for Enliven Chiropractic when dealing with several complicated HR issues. I have been thoroughly impressed on the breadth of knowledge that Sharon, Bernie and Zach have exhibited during our conversations and meetings. I would not hesitate to recommend AlignHR to colleagues and friends looking to improve their HR department.

    Dr. James Leonette, Enliven Chiropractic

  • "AlignHR was so flexible in meeting our exact needs for our training conference.  Bernie Deem and Zach Abraham came to our office and discussed the nature of the work which our EEO counselors and investigators do in each of our state agencies.  They asked excellent questions, suggested imaginative solutions and provided us with a custom-designed training on the funnel method of interviewing which our attendees found both helpful and entertaining.  Our office oversees training for over 250 EEO personnel in state governement.  Every agency has a different fucntion, and so our conference hosts very diverse trainees from all different backgrounds.  AlignHR met our needs beautifully."

    Jann D. Hoke, Director, West Virginia Equal Employment Opportunity Office

  • I’ve known Sharon for over seven years. Most of our interactions have been through Leadership Harrison. In fact, in 2010, I recommended to the chamber committee that Sharon be in charge of the curriculum for the leadership components for each session. That recommendation came as a result of working with Sharon on a couple of projects and witnessing first-hand the professionalism, and genuine interest that she demonstrates with clients. She truly does take the time to learn and understand your business so that she can develop customized program solutions to ensure effective outcomes. Additionally, I was privy to evaluations from Leadership Harrison participants who rated her presentations as nothing short of excellent. If you need an HR Consultant to make a positive contribution to your company and its future, choose Sharon!

    Lenny Hannigan, Leadership Professional, Consultant

  • Sharon is a no-nonsense professional who delivers what is needed, when it's needed. She understands business requirements and constraints and the threshold of providing value-added support. She gets the job done reliably and with integrity. I am proud to associate with Sharon not only professionally, but also esteem her as a personal friend and confidante. I recommend her to business professionals in need of Human Resource expertise without hesitation.

    Laura Jo Williams, Owner/Consultant, AXIOMEMEIDA

  • Sharon has done a great job of incorporating human resource solutions that are desiged around our culture,values, and vision. I have found her to be professional, knowledgeable, and delivers quality service.

    Darren Abraham, Abraham Linc

  • I have had the opportunity to work with Sharon as a strategic partner on several projects individually and in groups. She is the consummate professional. Sharon provides you and your organization with a one-stop shop for all of your HR needs. Forget off-the-shelf! All of her initiatives are customized specifically to the clients’ needs to ensure their desired results—which she consistently achieves. Along with stellar project outcomes, Sharon’s hands-on approach has her working closely with you and the ‘right’ people to make sure she has the most accurate information and understanding of all your strategic intentions… and if you don’t have clearly defined strategic intentions, she can help you there as well.

    Grant Stewart, President, Performance Matrix LLC

  • I have known Sharon for five years. In that time we have worked together on two projects and in each case I found her skills to be stellar. She has the gift of being able to function in training before a group or individual effectively with the development of competencies for each person in mind. I believe any company who has needs of HR skills and employee development would be well served by hiring her and her company.

    Ron Hill, Owner, Applied Leadership Solutions

  • I have worked with Sharon for several years now. During this time, I had the opportunity to see Sharon in action across all human resources disciplines. I have found Sharon to be an outstanding communicator, a person who does what she says she will and always follows up. Her approach to human resources is as professional as I have ever seen. She was firm in her style yet sensitive to employees at all times, highly accessible and always a resource to management and employees alike. I would recommend Sharon to any company, large or small who has need for a professional human resources manager.
