Testimonials

I like your timeliness and the fact that I find things here I don't find elsewhere. Thanks.

This has been very helpful and informative. I have sent this info to others as well. I think it is accurate and timely!

Had an opportunity to meet and listen to Phil in this week's CUE Conf. His presentation was an absolute home run - which is very appropriate for the host city - home of the Louisville Slugger. This information clearly focuses on "preventive medicine" which should eliminate or greatly minimize the risk of any serious "illness" - Left of The Boom is a great way to show importance of being pro active and what happens when we wait to react. Great job !

LRI is a leading full service labor and positive employee relations consulting firm. We help US employers earn, protect and retain their direct relationship privilege, as we have for more than 35 years. We also help leaders in unionized work places protect management flexibility and engage their approachable-leadership-full-workshop-infographic.pptxrepresented employees. We do this by teaching Approachable Leadership and educating leaders how to communicate lawfully, respectfully and effectively. We are the go-to partner for clients seeking to assess and mitigate risk, maintain early warning of employee relations problems, and prepare leaders for respectful and effective conversations that teach.

LRI is the preeminent firm in countering union organizing campaigns with more than 10,000 successful campaigns to our credit. While our consultants are super-talents in countering organizing, we have more fun helping clients develop leaders and create positive places to work that avoid organizing campaigns in the first place.

LRI has grown by delivering results, being trusted advisors and adding value to our clients’ organizations. Our clients represent a long list of familiar names in every part of the economy and we’re proud to have earned long-term relationships with so many of them.
