Our Clients

  • “I had the pleasure of working with primeHR as one of their first clients.  I was very pleased with how helpful they were and the team is very knowledgeable and able to cover a range of compensation needs.  I felt their support and leadership in the implementation of our SuccessFactors compensation module was invaluable.  I have gone back to them since our implementation for guidance and advice.  They are always helpful in ways not only for sustainment but continuous improvement to processes.  I would call upon their team again if I ever needed assistance with any compensation plan design, implementation, roll-out, and reporting (eg. annual proxy circular).  They are a great team to have on your contact list!”

  • “We first hired primeHR to support Athabasca in a long-term incentive (LTI) review and plan redesign. Their work was practical and well designed. Not only did it meet the Board’s objectives but they thoughtfully supported the administration of such changes including helping to design employee education sessions, manage complex back end Solium administration, and create customized letters to all employees.   Based on their work on our LTI redesign, we hired primeHR, and specifically Brenda Mickelson, to act as our internal Compensation Consultant. Brenda quickly became an expert at our compensation philosophy and improved our processes with strong templates and recommendations. Brenda is focused on strategic compensation that is administratively efficient and effective. Working with Brenda and her team has not only improved our compensation framework but has also improved my own knowledge and expertise in the world of compensation. I would strongly recommend primeHR for both compensation project work but also in-house compensation expertise. It is an absolute pleasure to work with the primeHR team and I foresee a long partnership between Athabasca and primeHR.

  • “I have been fortunate to have worked with the primeHR team on two separate compensation rebuild projects. The Team at primeHR bring a compensation expertise that is in short supply in the marketplace.  They provide clear expert advice, in salaries, short and long term incentives, and perquisites.  I have been able to work with the primeHR team to completely rebuild pay band and incentive programs for two separate companies and the work they deliver is clear, concise and accurate.  From an organizational perspective the materials are provided in a straightforward easy to understand way.  For any company that wants to build transparency and clarity for the workplace in the complex environment of compensation I could not recommend more highly the team at primeHR.”
