Who We Are

We believe our name says it all – we are HR Compliance Experts.

Founded by Frank Cania in 2018, HR Compliance Experts is a thriving human resource consulting firm located in Pittsford, NY.  Frank and the HRCE team serve clients in several states, including NY, AZ, CA, IL, MA, ME, NJ, and PA.  But, HRCE has much deeper roots.  Frank founded his first HR consulting firm–Cania HR–in 2006, with "one client, a dream, and a very supportive wife."  In 2012 Frank rebranded the quickly growing firm as driven HR.  Then, in 2016 driven HR merged with a payroll service provider.

A lot has changed since 2006.  Today, HRCE is comprised of an amazing team of professionals assisting a long list of valued clients with  a host of complex human resource issues.  What will never change is the dedication to providing every client with the help they need when they need it, the right answer the first time, and the knowledge that, at that moment, they are our most important client.
