“Everyone we deal with is very knowledgeable, responsible, and flexible. We very much enjoy working with our partners at OperationsInc! I don't know what we would do without our OI consultants! OI has long been a valued partner for us as the business has grown over the past 9 years. Without the help of the subject matter experts at OI, we would not have been able to support our management team in the manner expected.”

"Our OI resource has been very helpful and gives us thoughtful advise all the time. She has been aware of our issues as if she is employed as our HR manager.

To be honest with you, I cannot do my job without her."

Thornwood, NY

"Our OI Resource has been great to work with.  Through my interactions with her, she seems very knowledgeable in her area and able to answer any of my questions.  If we do come across something she doesn’t know off hand, she does a great job of doing the research or asking others at OI, and then getting back to me quickly with a thorough response.  She’s also always available if we need to schedule a call or meeting."

Senior HR Manager

"Our OI resource does what it takes to get the job done. She is very proactive, detail oriented, possesses strong HR knowledge, and operates very well on an independent level. When I am out of the office I am very comfortable knowing she will be here as my back-up. While at times this can be a tough environment I know she can handle whatever comes her way."

Director of Human Resources
Software Company
Stamford, CT

"To be blunt, our OI resource has done a great job helping us.  I really have no complaints, but I realize we are small and the priority should be less for someone like us, but she has never made us feel that way.  Very responsive and is here when we need her."
