“In HR, we have to be as resourceful and price conscious as possible in an effort to make sure our staff have the appropriate training they need and also keep it within a budget. I feel so lucky to have met the team at C3 (Custom Corporate Communications). They do so much for us and even provide funding for all of the trainings that our team and staff needs. I have used them at previous employers and will continue to use them at my current employer as they are truly a unique resource. Best part is that with funding with PIHRA and C3 we received everything for free.”

– Armine Muradyan, Vice President of Human Resources at Los Angeles Federal Credit Union

“We value the training that PIHRA / C3 provided our staff and would recommend this program to anyone! C3 makes it so easy!”
