Janice Jessen - Human Resources Manager, New Braunfels Utilities

New Braunfels Utilities (NBU) recently contracted with Adviant to produce a salary survey of twenty-two positions identified as areas in NBU with the largest turnover and most impacted by business growth and competition in the local area.  Adviant was chosen based on their experience, affordable cost structure, and ability to meet a very compressed timetable.  They immediately grasped our vision and focus for the survey and put together a team to collect and analyze results.  Most admirable, was the degree that Adviant worked to ensure participation from the maximum number of organizations.  The report was concise and definitely met our needs.

Adam Bokker - Owner / Director, Home Instead Senior Care

Since working with Adviant, we have become smarter with our HR processes.  Adviant provides expert advice and guidance to create a better culture for our employees.

Adviant has been my health Insurance broker and HR consultant for years.  They are always willing to think out of the box and provide creative solutions as my business continues to transition.  I have the utmost respect and admiration for the professional way Adviant and its staff always conduct themselves.  I very much look forward to working with them in the future.

Aaron Buerge - President, First National Bank

Due to the extensive and ongoing regulations in our industry, we need expert HR input and consultation on our human resource policies and procedures.  Adviant has continued to provide the guidance we seek, and looks beyond the obvious, to provide value greater than requested.  Their professionalism, expert knowledge, and concern for providing value are indispensable.

Brice E. Martin - President, Four State Trucks

Adviant was extremely easy to work with.  They were great at evaluating exactly what we were needing and helped us accomplish our staffing goals.

Lana Douglas - Practice Manager, Retina Specialists

When our office integrated from a practice management company to bring human resources, payroll, and benefits back in-house, we knew we had undertaken quite a challenge.  Adviant was highly recommended by clients that also used the services of our accountant.  Adviant provided insight, education, and support to us during this transition and ensured that we were ready to "go solo," helping us build our department from the ground up.

Sheri Line - Vice President, Human Resources, TIER REIT

Adviant assisted TIER REIT with the implementation of our HRIS and payroll system when we converted from an outsourced arrangement to in-house processing.  Adviant's team partnered with us to ensure a successful outcome.  The Adviant team became an extension of our team, working with us side by side, measuring our goal completion and timeline adherence.  With this watchful approach, our goals were often exceeded and completed ahead of schedule.  Adviant provided oversite for much of the detailed analysis required during our implementation.  The level of review given our project was critical to an on-time completion of our conversion.  Working in tandem with the Adviant team was not only a pleasure, but resulted in the successful accomplishment of our project.

Christopher W. Dumm - The Law Firm of Christopher W. Dumm

I have worked with Adviant several times, both personally and with my clients.  They have assisted me and my clients with new hires, corporate governance, compensation questions, and how to navigate the numerous and ever-changing briar patch of HR issues.  Adviant has always been professional, knowledgeable, and approachable.  I highly recommend them.

Vickie Dudley - Executive Director, Children’s Center of Southwest Missouri

Adviant is a tremendous asset to our employees and the human resources function of the organization.  As a small not-for-profit agency with limited resources, Adviant was able to enrich our benefit package at a reasonable cost, allowing employees to add dental, vision, accident, cancer, and disability insurance.  One of the most valuable resources provided by Adviant is human resource consultation.  They are just a phone call away when a question arises.  Consultation services were also invaluable in updating our employee policy and procedure manual to meet state and federal regulations.

Talon Maningas - Owner and Physcian, Maningas Cosmetic Surgery

As a new practice, Adviant was an invaluable asset to Maningas Cosmetic Surgery.  With employee satisfaction being of the utmost importance, one of our goals was to be able to provide benefits within our first year.  Adviant was able to provide many options for us to choose from.  Empowering our employees to take charge of their own healthcare.  They are an excellent resource and I would recommend the company without hesitation.
