"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."

"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."

"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. "

"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."
