National Vision

Prior to partnering with HR Acuity, our employee issues were treated as individual events. HR Acuity not only provides us with the technology to record and track incidents, identify trends and create visibility to potential areas for improvement, they have helped us design and implement a standardized process to ensure fair and equitable treatment across the organization. HR Acuity offers far more than software. The HR Acuity Team engages with us to complement our HR team and offer a full-service solution.
