“Over the last few years as we experienced staffing growth and diversified our markets, we recognized a corporate need to improve the internal human resource offerings to our employees along with associated accountability for compliance regarding agency regulations, hiring practices and associated documentation.

We turned to JoAnn Steffes for her expertise on generating reliable processes that were compatible with our business model, coached existing staff on the process execution and provided protocol that ensures future attention to our newly implemented practices.

Even more importantly, a trusting relationship was developed.   JoAnn earned the respect and confidence of our executive, leadership, operations and support work groups and is considered “one of us” by all. She has provided consulting services for staffing placement, interviews and candidate selection and advised us on sensitive and confidential employee issues. We appreciate her candid, professional opinion, objective and organized demeanor, empathetic personality and efforts to forward the best interest of our company.

We found a friend in the human resource business.”
