National human resources provider to relocate in Middletown; create 20 new jobs

FRANKFORT, Ky. – Governor Steve Beshear today announced Integrity HR, a national human resources firm, will relocate to east Louisville.

The company, which specializes in human resources services to entrepreneurs, small businesses and not-for-profits, plans to create up to 20 new jobs paying a yearly average of $50,000.

“This is a perfect example of a small business flourishing in Kentucky,” said Gov. 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 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. The company plans to invest $1.1 million into the project.

“Our goal in providing human resource services is to help make businesses perform better,” said Amy Newbanks Letke, Integrity HR founder and 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.”

Integrity HR, a woman-owned business, has been operating in Kentucky since 2007. The company provides results-focused human resources outsourcing services, compensation consulting, workplace training, recruitment services and HR solutions to help reduce HR costs and to improve employee engagement and overall business performance. Integrity HR serves small and medium-sized business throughout the country.

“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 and 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.
