What our clients say...

Kansas Masonic Foundation

Robert A. Shively, CAE, CFRE
Executive Director 
Kansas Masonic Foundation

"When I joined the Kansas Masonic Foundation as their Executive Director four years ago I knew that as a small organization I needed professional human resources advice from an outside advisor.

Being an organization of only five staff members, it was impossible to provide the level of ongoing consultation needed internally.

I interviewed a number of agencies and immediately realized when I interviewed HR Partners that the talent and expertise they had on staff would be a perfect team for our organization.  I especially appreciated the 'legal' help and advice they could provide as well. I am thoroughly satisfied with our partnership and am confident it will last for many years to come!"
