Read the testimonal from David Butters, Excutive Director of Northern California Transplant, concerning the services of People Solutions LLC.
We are a client of Vista Benefits and one of the benefits we enjoy is the services of Bill Burton and his company People Solutions for Small Business.
As a seasonal business with a full time year round staff of only 15 - 20 total employees, I am the only employee in Human Resources. Most of my knowledge has come from experience, attending some seminars and a lot of reading. When a situation arises where I would like some input from an experienced professional I can call Bill and discuss the situation with him. He asks the right questions to get to the heart of the matter and offers options to help us determine the best course of action for our business.
I can turn to Bill at times, e.g. weekends and evenings, when most places of business would not be available. Although expecting to leave a message that would be answered on the next business day, frequently I get a call the same day. Among other concerns, he has offered valuable advice in matters such as separation of employment and Unemployment Compensation issues. We do not encounter situations often but when we do, I usually call Bill to ask his advice.
I feel confident in recommending Bill Burton and People Solutions for Small Business to any small business in need of professional consultation. It is a real benefit to me and to Cascade Mountain to have him on my phone list.
Human Resources Manager
I want to take this opportunity to publicly commend and recommend the services of Bill Burton, People Solutions for Small Business, LLC. The services he provided were integral in the development and implementation of our Human Resources infrastructure. He developed compensation plans for my senior leadership team as well as a salary matrix for the company. He coordinated an enhancement to our 401k program enjoyed by all eligible participants. He met with staff to learn of issues affecting performance and dealt with those issues accordingly and in a professional manner. He kept us informed of compliance issues involving employment and labor law. He worked effectively with the General Manager in improving the performance management system by creating an Introductory Performance Review that complimented the existing process.
Bill Burton helped usher in our new culture during our innovative "15 Minutes of Fame" whereby we showcased our new facility and philosophy of being a different type of employer. He wrote much needed job descriptions, developed policies and procedures that resulted in more efficient operations and improved communication among employees and supervisors.
I regarded Bill Burton not as a consultant, but as a member of my senior leadership team. He earned the respect of the employees of the company. I am grateful and thankful for his efforts in making Berres Brothers Coffee Roasters the company I intended it to be.

Because we are a small company, we do not have the resources to hire a full-time Human Resource professional. My position leads me in many different directions and often doesn't leave me with time to research human resource issues thoroughly. We signed up for the HR Hotline-Unlimited Phone Consultation program and have been working with Bill for about six months.
Our questions are promptly researched and addressed in a way that allows for ease of understanding and implementation. This cost-effective resource has saved us time and money - both of which are very dear to our organization. We appreciate Bill Burton's ability to respond quickly and to the point. Bill also frequently stops by to check in and drop off resources he has found that may be useful to us. We find this service to be very valuable and recommend it fully to employers who want a senior level Human Resources professional at their immediate disposal.

United Wisconsin Grain Producers LLC (UWGP) has been in operation for over a year and believe me, there are a lot of "irons in the fire". My job duties are countless and my plate is full. I needed a point of contact on issues that were arising or that I could foresee would arise. I decided to sign up for the Human Resource (HR) Hotline-Unlimited Phone Consultation Program and have been working with Bill from People Solutions for Small Business, LLC, for abut six months. I feel at ease that I have a point of contact that will be there to guide me with any questions or concerns that may arise.
When I have an issue or a concern that arises, I know I can contact Bill and I will get a thorough response. Not only is the response thorough, it is timely. I can count on Bill to guide me with all my HR needs.
As a professional services firm, our success is built on reputation and delivery of a quality product. We engaged the services of Bill Burton, People Solutions for Small Business, to complete a long-overdue project. He delivered a professional product that was completed on time and on budget. He helped set up our office structure to ensure compliance with employment laws. He has earned our respect and his reputation in the community is growing. I have no doubt I will use his services again and I would recommend Bill Burton to any small to medium sized business looking for assistance with HR issues.

Bill Burton was a great help in creating the HR infrastructure for our company. He developed the much overdue handbook, developed policies and procedures to help manage the staff, and mentored my junior leaders in recruiting and interviewing efforts. He was fundamental in the creation of our mission and values statements which are now part of our culture. He corrected deficiencies in our recordkeeping and we are now able to remain in compliance. He provided guidance and assistance in the development of new insurance packages for the company as well as the new 401K program. His services were professionally delivered. He earned the respect of the staff and we are a better company because of his efforts.
