What Our Members Are Saying

Patty B. Martin

St. Francis Healthcare System of Hawaii

"St. Francis engaged HEC to provide a thoughtful practical approach to develop a compensation strategy to support our vision, mission and values and simultaneously incent employees to achieve excellence in achieving key performance indicators. Cathy Keaulani, HECs Manager, Surveys and Compensation Services patiently worked with our CEO and the Human Resources Leadership through this process; including market pricing, workforce analysis ,and pay structure design. Cathy clearly demonstrated comprehensive professional knowledge and helped us design an approach that optimally works for St. Francis."

Shari Lynn Lee

Hawaii Visitors & Convention Bureau

"The whole experience of creating a formal compensation package was so much easier on us because of HEC. I’d highly recommend and would use them again when the need arises. They were friendly, knowledgeable and their work was very thorough and they listened to our concerns with undivided attention. I can’t thank them enough. "

Jordan Vannatta

Y. Hata & Co., Limited

"I have now partnered with Cathy Keaulani and HEC twice in developing and validating compensation practices. Cathy is extremely knowledgeable in this area and just a joy to work with. Cathy is always willing to help and provides sound advice. As the market shifts locally and nationally, she stays abreast of the matters and the paradigm shifts within the economy. I will continue to work with Cathy and HEC and would highly recommend their compensation services."

Jan M. Iga, PHR

Hawaii Dental Service

"I’m very grateful for Hawaii Employers Council’s Compensation Consulting Services. We have a very small HR department and it’s very challenging to be knowledgeable in every area that impacts HR, especially something as analytical as Compensation. With being a member of HEC, you feel as though you don’t need to have all the answers because you can pick up the phone and get an answer from your extended HR at Hawaii Employers Council. We recently switched from a mainland firm to Hawaii Employers Council for our Executive Compensation Consultation needs and we are very pleased with the services that are provided. Cathy is professional, knowledgeable and very thorough. I really enjoy working with Cathy and I feel I would be lost without her."

Tia Waikiki

Hui No Ke Ola Pono

"It’s always a pleasure working with HEC on compensation projects. I was given the opportunity to work with HEC at my past employer. This time around it was a no brainer introducing HEC and having a compensation analysis done with my new employer. The completed compensation analysis were based off of job duties performed and not job titles. This is an important concept when operating in smaller organizations as you’re expected to perform multiple positions. I LOVE working with HEC, the expertise and background they bring is immeasurable."
