We have been using SymbianceHR since 2018, and they have been an amazing HR resource. I am a HR department of one, so they have been a great outlet on all different aspects. Just as important as their guidance is their timeliness! They are very responsive and keep you in the loop, whether just to let you know they are working on a response, or to send a response; I have always had follow up the same day, if not within the same hour. They have helped us on many things including an employee handbook review, interpretation of regulations, legal actions, such as, terminations, and benefits, just to name a few. SymbianceHR, is a go to resource for any HR department!

The Alias Group

I have known Warren of SymbianceHR for several decades and watched as he grew his expertise as a Human Resources Leader. Once it was time to add HR to our team of industry experts at Experic, I knew there was no one else I wanted who could deliver HR, Business Management, and Pharmaceutical expertise to my leadership team. SymbianceHR made it easy to engage their services as our Virtual HR partner, and I would recommend any start up or existing business needing to complement their leadership team with an HR expert to contact SymbianceHR today.

I cannot emphasize enough the positive impact that Warren’s advice and support has had on my business in the six months or so we have been working together. As a small business owner I am expected to wear many hats, sometimes all in the same day and with Warren as an adviser, I know I can reach out anytime (he is incredibly responsive) on HR, payroll, healthcare, etc. and have insightful and reliable guidance. His monthly program is some of the best money I spend every month.

I would like to recommend Warren S. Cook to any individual who is seeking consulting. I recently consulted with Mr. Cook, after reading his articles on LinkedIn.
When speaking to him it was made apparent, swiftly, that he was a knowledgeable professional in his field. He could help identify key issues and create a clear and concise strategy to confront the problems.
Before speaking with Mr. Cook I was unsure of how to address many on the issues I was being confronted with in the workplace, but after speaking to him I was confident in what I needed to do next and I had a concise strategy on how to address the problems.
I personally would recommend Mr. Warren Cook’s services to anyone who is in need of consulting.

Patricia S.

Career Development Client

I am very impressed by Warren’s knowledge of the many laws and regulations surrounding Human Resources. Warren has many years of experience dealing with human capital issues and this experience is very evident. With this particular client, we worked together on the renewal of the company’s Health and Welfare Plans. This involved a number of meetings. During these meetings, Warren was very collaborative and played a very important role in setting the strategy for a Voluntary Benefits offering. These Voluntary Benefits were very well received by employees and our client is very satisfied with this addition to their Benefits Program. Warren was instrumental in achieving this result.
In my opinion an HR professional must partner effectively with other leadership of an organization to attain organizational objectives. Based on my interactions with Warren, I believe he thoroughly understands this broader role that HR must play.
I hope these comments are helpful in your evaluation of SymbianceHR. If you decide to work with SymbianceHR I believe you will be pleased with this decision based on my experience working with Warren and his staff.

Murray M. – Benefits Broker / Consultant

Simkiss & Block

Our firm has been working with Warren Cook during the past few years with several common clients, and we have only positive comments to share. We are in the insurance business, so our work with Warren has been in the context of how insurance (especially Employee Benefits) integrates with HR needs and issues.

Warren and his team have arranged various meetings with common clients, in order to help the clients better understand/utilize our Employee Benefits services, and in at least one case, to recommend to the client that we audit their antiquated Property- Casualty program.
To elaborate, SymbianceHR has been helping our common clients to decide if and how they want to expand their Benefit Programs and offerings to their current workforce, as well as how to utilize their offerings to maximize their effectiveness in attracting new talent.
SymbianceHR has conducted meetings in a collaborative and productive manner, placing the client’s goals and objectives first. In particular, Warren’s Risk Assessment services have been valuable in identifying liabilities related to existing programs and procedures (or a lack thereof), and his leadership and executive coaching regarding strategic planning for the workforce, has also proved valuable. He has the ability to step into situations where a client’s leadership team needs to understand the impact, exposure, and changes that are required by its management, if they want to grow their business. At the same time, Warren has demonstrated a practical side, fully understanding that change is difficult, and that the client must determine if, what, and when they will be able to make his recommended changes. It isn’t possible, or practical, to reverse history overnight.
