Kendr was imagined by co-founder Beth Schroeder, an employment defense lawyer, who has spent 30 years trying to find ways to help her clients avoid expensive litigation. After long depositions listening to employees testify they didn’t know how to reach HR, were afraid to report, lost their handbooks, or forgot the hotline number, she was determined to find a way that employees could always safely contact HR without fear of reprisal . . .and put an end to these lawsuits. Employees can download a free app that allows direct access to HR or management so they can safely (anonymously if desired) report any issues at work so employees feel heard.
