Expert advice you, and your employees, can count on.

We are professional consultants who are dedicated to partner with small to mid-size companies to provide HR consulting leadership and expertise for a fee-for-service basis.

To complement our commercial, farm & agribusiness departments, Rummel Agency offers Human Resources consulting.  We take the time to learn about your organization and implement solutions that fit your culture, industry and vision for the future.  Never settle for “this is how it’s always been done” or “this is what other companies are doing.”  We offer a complete line of services to help support your organization and HR needs.  The professionals at Emil Rummel Agency, Inc. have been working with businesses like yours since Emil opened the doors in 1950.

The single biggest gap for small and medium sized businesses is having expert resources in the area of Human Resources within their organization.  The Affordable Care Act – whether you offer health insurance or not – is increasing the number of compliance pieces required and Federal Regulators performing field audits of employers.  Just as we work for you on the insurance side of the house, we’ll work with you helping provide the level of HR your business needs.
