Testimonials

Efficient & Effective
"Jeannie is a consummate HR professional who knows all facets of HR both from a birds-eye and from a detailed perspective. She does her job with good humor and maintains excellent employee relations while moving the company's interests forward. In budget-constrained environments there is often a perceived tension between employee and management interests, but Jeannie intelligently balances all of the factors and competing interests and thus bridges that gap."
R.I., VP of R&D, SeaSpace Corporation

"I had an urgent need for quick action coaching on salary negotiations. I didn't have a lot of time to waste as my meeting was approaching the next day. Jeannie was the best -- she didn't waste any of my time, and went directly into the coaching mode. She listened to me carefully, and provided amazing coaching that I needed. Thanks to her, I felt confident going into the meeting and ended up with a higher salary than what was offered to me in the first place. For anyone who needs sound coaching with expertise in salary negotiations and anything HR related, I recommend working with Jeannie."
C.O., Director, Manhattan, NY

"A couple years ago we downsized to about a 60 employee telecommunication hardware company in San Diego. As part of that action, we eliminated our one full time Human Resource position in favor of hiring Jeannie on part time basis. Jeannie came highly recommended by another service provider and she has more than lived up to that endorsement. On site just 4 hours/wk and available remotely at most other times, Jeannie manages to effectively cover all of the typical HR tasks for our diverse organization. She consistently demonstrates a strong knowledge of the dynamic HR fundamentals and executes potential emotionally sensitive tasks with striking professionalism. I’d strongly recommend Jeannie to any company looking to outsource the HR function."
D.N., Chief Executive Officer, REMEC Broadband Wireless

"I was instrumental in hiring Jeannie for contract HR Services at both REMEC Broadband Wireless and Nextivity, Inc. Jeannie's background and experience make it easy to hand over the responsibilities for all aspects of the Human Resources function. As a busy finance executive, I rely on Jeannie to cover the legal and emotional details involved in managing and maintaining the human resource function. I highly recommend Jeannie / HR-Rx, Inc.'s services to anyone looking to outsource their Human Resources function, or parts thereof, to someone who can be trusted to get the job done accurately, timely, and with little to no supervision."
C.L., VP of Finance, Nextivity, Inc. and REMEC Broadband Wireless
