It’s almost impossible today to engage in a conversation with a HARDI member about his or her business that doesn’t center, to a large degree, on issues and opportunities related to people.  From where our members should go to find them, to retaining and developing them, getting the best from them, and more.  These are conversations we are happy to be having. HARDI firmly believes that Human Capital Management, or the strategic management of employees as profit-generating resources of the company, is a key ingredient in the successful future of this industry.

To that extent, we are proud to announce that the HARDI Education pillar, which has always been a core HARDI service, will widen its scope with the launch of our new pillar: HARDI Talent.

You’ve come to expect exceptional training and development solutions from HARDI. With the launch of HARDI Talent, we’re confident that you’ll come to look to us for the highest quality Human Resource support.


Consideration of adding headcount, re-aligning responsibilities, or creating new positions at your company is no small decision. Questions arise about job descriptions, insurance, compensation, and your handbook, work rules and policies. Let our resources help you navigate through these decisions.
