Our history: Strategic HR U.S, first opened its doors in 1983 as Northern New England Law Publishers and served as an information clearinghouse for the human resources community in Maine for over 30 years. In 2022, Strategic HR U.S. was acquired by the Nimble Group and continues to pursue this mission.

We rely on a thriving network of human resources professionals, labor-management attorneys, and workers’ compensation experts for advice, analysis, and ideas. Our goal is to empower HR professionals to foster healthy relations with your employees, thereby avoiding costly workplace conflict and litigation and allowing you to focus your energy on your products and services.
