"I have found our OI resource to be extremely easy to work with.  She is very professional, and responds quickly to all communication.  When we have worked together on lengthier projects (i.e. Handbook and Salary Grids) she has completed the work on a timely basis.  I have found that she does have a wealth of knowledge, but if unsure of an answer, she will do the research and get me the correct answer.  She is very thorough and I feel very confident in her ability and quality of work.  I would feel very comfortable recommending her services to my peers."

"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."
