Jodi Ross, Director of HR, American Seating
 
I can’t express what an incredible asset our HR Flex Pro, Laurel, has been to our team and me. She has embraced the role, made improvements, and has been so well received by so many. She is smart, organized, eager, pleasant, and the list goes on. It’s been such a pleasure working with her, and I've appreciated having her here.

Nate Koetje, CEO, Feyen Zylstra

HRC was a good fit for us because they hit the ground running. I found their process to be complete and well-thought-out.  What I appreciated is their willingness to look at what our expectations were and what we needed for our business, versus them telling me what I needed.

Beverly Grant, Interim CEO, D.A. Blodgett - St. John's

It was an absolute pleasure working with HR Collaborative! They were top-notch from the beginning to the end of our relationship. The process our agency experienced was thorough, comprehensive, and allowed for HR visioning and possibilities of our agency to be realized. I would recommend HRC for all your human resource needs. Thank you, HRC!

Michael Kunzler, Managing Partner, The C2 Group
