“I travel from building to building and receive so many emails that I can’t remember if I have responded to our assigned claims representative (who is fabulous and the BOMB)…. Now I can go to the online client portal and BANG BOOM WALLA BING BANG I’m done, I can respond in a timely manner…. At the end the month I am to submit a report to my boss on how many claims were submitted and the status of each case. It is all on the online portal in the reach of my hands, WOW (as I’m shaking my head in disbelief), that means a lot to me. I’m soooo open to anything that will make my job easier and reachable anytime any place…. The online portal is great and I will say it again it is the BOMB!!!  Keeps me on my toes!!! Personnel Planners has sold me!!!”

“I would like to take a moment to express my thanks for the high quality work that our assigned service representative from Personnel Planners provides to our company. When I began working with our assigned service representative approximately one year ago I was leery because I had always performed all of my unemployment duties myself. It did not take long for our assigned service representative to win me over with her vast knowledge of Illinois unemployment law, attention to details, and diligent follow-up.

With the vast changes that seem to be happening with the Illinois Dept. of Employment Services, it is good to have a competent person in my corner to help control our losses and business expenses.

I highly recommend Personnel Planners because of the relationship that I have with our assigned service representative and the benefits listed above.”

“…I would be remiss if I didn’t take a few moments to drop you a line to thank you for the establishment of this relationship (with Personnel Planners and its President, David Prosnitz) which I owe to you (Joseph Gagliardo of Laner Muchen). Personnel Planners is consummately professional, has been extremely beneficial to the firm of Amari & Locallo and I want to thank you for that introduction.”

Oscar and Associates

“In the busy life of human resources, unemployment claims are one area it is nice not to have to think about. With Personnel Planners, we know that we will be well represented and you will find a way to save us money on unemployment claims-something a CPA firm can really relate to! Thanks again to you and your staff for making our busy lives a little easier.”

“We previously used a different provider and noticed unfavorable results on many claims that we felt should have been in our favor. Our SUI rate in the long run did suffer and increased quite a bit. In hopes of working this rate back down, we switched to Personnel Planners who after reviewing some of our more challenging claimants were confident they could help us. They were right!

Personnel Planners has gone above and beyond the service we received from our previous provider. When I noticed that Personnel Planners requested information to help dispute claims (information that our previous provider never asked for), I immediately could tell there was a difference in their approach in responding to the claims we were receiving.

Since our switch, we have much more favorable outcomes on our claims and our SUI rate has decreased substantially. The Personnel Planners team is very pleasant and offers excellent customer service. I have definitely been very pleased with the positive results and would recommend Personnel Planners without question.”

Christine Ramos | Manager of Human Resources | University Club of Chicago

“We are very pleased with services we receive from Personnel Planners. They are efficient and quick to get our protests filed with the states we do business in. They are able to offer guidance in how to respond to claims and tips for the hearings.”
