"I have worked with Mike Dobert, owner of HR in Alignment, LLC, since July 2011. After interviewing four other recommended companies, Distribution International (DI) hired the “best of the best”, Mike Dobert, to help with our Human Resource needs. Because we are a fast growing company without an HR Department, we needed help in accomplishing certain goals and stay within lawful compliance.
Mike has over 25 years in HR and that expertise is what DI needs to move forward. Mike developed our Employee Handbook, rewrote our HIPAA Plan, designed and will facilitate company-wide Harassment Training, developed written job descriptions and job performance appraisals, will review FLSA classifications and advise DI of proper classifications, has developed an Application for Employment and designed a New Hire Orientation program, heads DI’s monthly Affirmative Action Plan/Equal Employment Opportunity committee meetings and provides its quarterly reports, provides daily consulting when needed and has been onsite at least one day a week per our agreement.
Mike has always made himself available to DI when necessary and is just a phone call or email away to handle any problems that may arise and is very accommodating to our schedule. I sincerely recommend Mike Dobert if you want the 'best of the best.'"

He has helped me stay in compliance with all kinds of things I knew nothing about such as employee classifications, job descriptions, worker's compensation insurance, and all kinds of federal and state employment laws. Mike has helped me recruit and train my employees. He has designed and conducted my new hire orientation meetings and has helped me create a thorough and useful Employee Handbook. He has also assisted me in TWC unemployment hearings and proceedings for dismissed employees. He has helped me develop an employee evaluation plan and even assisted in the discipline and dismissal of employees.
Overall, I cannot say enough good things about Mike. He is an honest, fair, and knowledgeable man, and I consider him a friend. He has been an invaluable part of my growing business."

"As a small business owner, you are expected to know everything about your business, but you have to admit that you are not an expert in all areas (and you shouldn’t have to be!). Human Resources is an area that I have little to no expertise. I have to say that I’m a little scared of HR issues as they can have legal ramifications. It’s an area where I can’t rely on myself to do it right as I don’t even know what the right way is. Mike has been a person that has given great guidance to me with things as small as advice on an employee issue up to creating an employee handbook with the correct and legal language is used. He has extensive knowledge and expertise in this area and has helped us make sure we are in compliance to avoid any future issues and help us protect our business. He is a great resource to have on your side, so you don’t have to think about these issues. He is conscious of small business limitations and can tailor services to your needs and budget. I really recommend working with Mike at HR in Alignment, LLC for any needs, concerns or questions you may have!"

Since meeting with you, I now understand the importance of being proactive with my Human Resource needs. With your guidance I have been able to structure my office in such a way that my employees are buying into my system. You have also taught me how to be strategic in my approach in handling potential issues that arise from day to day activities. One thing I am really excited about is the Employee Handbook. The Handbook allows me to stress to my employees my desires I have for my industry and how I want to run my business. It is a great feeling to know that with proper planning I no longer need to worry about the UNKNOWN. Thank you for your relentless dedication to my needs and my success as a business owner."

"As a new chamber president, I needed to update our Personnel Handbook and ensure that we were in compliance with all regulations. I turned to Mike Dobert for help and he had a draft proposal to me within days that we were able to implement immediately. To accomplish this myself would have taken much time and taken my focus away from other priorities. Mike is not only an expert in this area but is so easy to work with. I could not give a stronger endorsement for Mike."
