"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 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."

“I continue to be more than satisfied with OperationsInc. One of the most important aspects to me is that throughout the 5+ year relationship OperationsInc has rarely changed their personnel. This consistency is fantastic.”

"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."

"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."
