Integrity HR, a national human resources firm, will invest $1.1 million to relocate its operations center to east Louisville, Kentucky
. The company, which specializes in human resources services to entrepreneurs, small businesses and not-for-profits, plans to create up to 20 new jobs.
Integrity HR is moving from its current facility on Frankfort Avenue, in Louisville, to a newly-constructed 9,000-square-foot building on Lily Creek Road, in Middletown. The new facility will allow the company to hire more human resources consultants, recruitment professionals and other managerial associates, as well as provide additional meeting space for clients and continuing education classes.
“Our goal in providing human resource services is to help make businesses perform better,” said Amy Newbanks Letke, Integrity HR Founder/CEO. “We are excited about moving into our new building where we can continue to grow and provide more comprehensive services and resources to our current and future client base.”
“This is a perfect example of a small business flourishing in Kentucky,” said Governor Steve Beshear
. “Not only is Integrity HR adding more employees, it also is expanding its services to other growing businesses around the country. Small businesses are the backbone of Kentucky’s economy, and I want to congratulate Integrity HR on its success.”
“Integrity HR’s expansion demonstrates the strength of Louisville’s quality of life
and business environment,” said Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer. “One of our core cluster areas is business services, and Integrity HR is proof that we are making progress in our economic development efforts.”
“Integrity HR has been a member of Greater Louisville Inc. since the company’s inception,” said GLI President/CEO Kent Oyler. “We are so pleased to be joining the Governor and Mayor in congratulating Amy and her team on this new growth and continued success.”
To encourage the investment and job growth in Jefferson County, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority preliminarily approved the company for tax incentives up to $200,000 through the Kentucky Business Investment program
. The performance-based incentive allows a company to keep a portion of its investment over the term of the agreement through corporate income tax credits and wage assessments by meeting job and investment targets.
