"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."

"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."

"Our OI resource is truly excellent in her craft and came across as a subject matter expert. She interacted with senior level executives with ease, was creative in her approaches, and demonstrated a tremendous amount of patience, which was critical to her success. Her sourcing techniques went well beyond just posting an opening or surfing the web, reaching out and networking with candidates to find us the best people for the job. "

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

"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."

"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."
