"Our OI resource has been great. He is punctual, knowledgeable and efficient. We’re very happy to have him supporting our needs."

HR Generalist
Marketing Services Co.
Norwalk, CT

"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

"Thank goodness for our OI resource, I don’t know where I’d be without her. She is a pleasure to work with. Whenever I am in need she is always there to offer assistance. She is extremely knowledgeable in the HR field. If there is a subject that she is unsure of she immediately reaches out to her sources to help me find the answers I need in a timely manner. I am very glad we have her as our HR support."

HR Manager
Interactive Advertising Agency
Norwalk, CT

"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."

Controller
Technology Firm
New York, NY

"Our OI resource is my all time favorite person! I love working with her. She is accessible and responds to messages promptly. She is thorough and keeps excellent records. We have a similar approach to payroll and I feel we work very well together. I can’t say enough good things about her! She is just the best."

"I’ve attended other outplacement training but this was by far the best!"

Marianne D.

"Our OI Resource was highly efficient. Her response times were remarkable. In terms of her knowledge of the recruiting field – she was always on top of everything I asked her. She had a wonderful personality and was very easy to talk to / coordinate with. She follows up with everything very quickly, which is hard to find these days. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience with your organization."

Managing Director
Financial Services Co.
New York, NY

"Chris (the trainer) did an outstanding job presenting the session. The materials provided possessed a wealth of valuable information. I’ve attended other outplacement training but this was by far the best."

Marianne D.

"The JSE guide was excellent with so many websites covered. The price was so reasonable. I really learned a lot, especially about Linked-In."

Tara G.

"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."
