About Your People Professionals


YPP was formed in 1984 and is owned by Sandra Dickerson, who was a key manager for the Founder for ten years prior to buying the business in 1997.  Over the years YPP has worked with hundreds of businesses and managed thousands of employees for California Employers. This experience creates a wealth of tribal knowledge about the human resource issues that are unique to California Employers. YPP brings that diverse knowledge base to our clients to help them solve the organization problems of today and tomorrow.

Your Listening Experts

Communications within a business unit is one of the greatest management challenges faced by today’s organizations. When you drill down into the details of organizational problems we often find that the lack of listening and communications skills is the primary catalyst. We believe that a key success element in managing Human Resources is the ability to listen carefully and understand the various perspectives involved in today’s complex and diverse workforces.

One key role of HR within a business unit today is to serve as a trusted and neutral third party that helps bring the people of your organization together.

Dedicated to Your Confidentiality

As we embark on the path toward servicing you and your employees, it is critical that we understand your organizational goals, key initiatives, business challenges and barriers to success. We appreciate that these are highly guarded and private topics within any organization. We pledge ourselves to maintaining the highest level of confidentiality in dealing with your organization and the information you reveal to us.

Why We Specialize in California

The United States has a myriad of employment laws that demand high levels of knowledge and compliance from employers and California is far and away the most complex state in which to do business. This is why we choose California as our specialty and we have made the necessary investments to put the best people, processes and programs together to serve our clients in California.

In the words of President John F. Kennedy “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills…” We choose California HR for the same reason.
