Human Resource Services, Inc. (HRS) was created in New York City in 1969 by William K. Zinke and has become a progenitor for changing the outdated terms of Employee Relations/Personnel/Industrial Relations to Human Resources which became the term of choice in succeeding years. HRS began with a broad management consulting focus on human resources (HR) management and subsequently evolved in the mid-1970s to providing a broad range of consulting activities in the legal field, working both with large law firms and corporate law departments of major companies. The HRS consulting activities also expanded to include meetings and conferences around the world in both the HR and legal areas, as well as organizing occasional surveys on topics of particular interest.
