What My Customers Are Saying
Our organization was struggling with attracting the candidates we needed. We started working with Ed, and he had some unique ideas and insights into how we could do better with recruitment, our HR processes, and the structure of the department.
The plan Ed gave us was detailed and felt realistic, like a really good roadmap we could actually use. I was impressed with his work, his professionalism, and his ability to make a strong assessment of our HR processes and come back with concrete ideas and plans for us to review and incorporate.
An engaged culture is one of the most important things to our company. We take it very seriously and work on it intentionally. But one thing we haven’t done well is compensation.
That’s why we brought Ed in. He really got to know the culture and understood the company, and he created a comprehensive, effective compensation plan perfect for our company’s needs.
I highly recommend Ed to other business owners who want someone that gets to know the company, understands what’s important, and delivers on it.
Ed’s work is thorough and precise and his insight is both thoughtful and candid. I found working with Ed to be refreshing. He approaches his engagements in a highly professional yet approachable manner which I find allows for a much more fluid flow of information and guidance.

Buy Ed’s New Book “Strategic HR”
This book is the real deal. It’s filled with practical ideas on how you can get results from your team. Get your pen out because you are going to want to take notes and discuss with your leadership team.
I have been waiting for a book like this. Ed does a great job of breaking down the critical components of aligning C Suite and HR strategies together. This is a book not only for HR professionals, but for executives to also understand their Human Resources function. Lots of great leadership principles throughout the book. I cannot wait to put into action the strategies outlined in the book.
Ed Krow finally gives HR the voice it needs to be heard in the C-Suite and respected by the workforce. But be forewarned: He pulls no punches while offering an intelligent, honest, and detailed strategy to transform HR from “compliance cops and payroll clerks” to executive business partners. It’s a must-read for both new and experienced HR professionals, as well as the business executives who manage them.
