We recently had the pleasure of having Allison Guld Co-Founder of Amui come to the Learning Centre to speak to Dentists and Dental Managers about the changes in Human Resources this past year in British Columbia. Amui Inc. is changing the way organizations interact with HR by providing on-demand access to HR knowledge.  Their easy to use online platform AnswerBar provides confidential custom answers addressing everyday situations as well as complex people-related problems. Users can offload time consuming research by asking unlimited questions and receive templates from their extensive HR document database. They help everyone make better decisions faster by providing relevant and accurate information.

Allison’s strategic, operational and management experience in recruitment and HR was honed in high tech organizations such as Blast Radius, Ernst & Young, and MDA.  No stranger to entrepreneurial adventures, Allison’s first company paid for her university degree. She went on to be a top performer as a 100% commission high tech recruiter which segued into her own recruitment agency in the late 1990’s. She spent the last 10 years working in-house for high growth companies in senior human resources roles until 2015 when she co-founded Amui Inc. with partner, Stephanie Lyster launching AnswerBar in early 2019.

Allison’s partner is Stephanie Lyster,  based in Vancouver, BC.  Stephanie has experience identifying and implementing strategic HR solutions including workforce planning, performance management, recruitment and change management. Her background in building people infrastructure for high growth companies cemented her belief that HR should not be a cost function but a strategic partner for performance, cultural influence and retention. After establishing herself in corporate HR roles, Stephanie pursued her entrepreneurial interests as a consultant starting 2009 until she co-founded Amui in 2015 with partner, Allison Guld, launching Answerbar in early 2019.

The presentation focussed on the fact that everyone has a people-related question. But do they have an answer? This 2 hour interactive session shared HR basics essential to every small business. She provided tips and tricks for hiring, managing and firing employees plus insights to minimize legal risk and so business owners can ultimately make better decisions. They taught the attendees how to learn how to make the right decisions about your people because what you don’t know could be time consuming and costly.

To contact Allison or Stephanie for a specific question in relation to their expertise , go to www.answerbar.com type in your question ( your first three questions are free ) and be amazed at their knowledge and accuracy , allowing you wo make the right decisions for your business.
