"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."

“Everyone we deal with is very knowledgeable, responsible, and flexible. We very much enjoy working with our partners at OperationsInc! I don't know what we would do without our OI consultants! OI has long been a valued partner for us as the business has grown over the past 9 years. Without the help of the subject matter experts at OI, we would not have been able to support our management team in the manner expected.”
