WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY
My company experience a very rapid growth which resulted in an increase to our staff of twice its normal size of twenty people…Katherine was the perfect fit for my company. She implemented a formal health and safety committee, completed a detailed company policy manual in addition to addressing all of the typical day to day personnel issues that surface within the office environment… I found one of her major strengths to be her ability to listen to issues and deal with the facts to reach a satisfactory resolution in a very timely manner…Jim Calvert, former Owner/CEO I.M.A Ltd. (now retired)
“Initially she was hired to manage Workplace Safety and Insurance Claims and shortly thereafter effectively corrected a number of compliance issues with the Ministry of Labour. She continued to manage WSIB issues and MOL issues on an ongoing basis. Recruiting new staff during some turnover was well managed by Katherine as well as the unfortunate lay off of more than eight employees at two locations due to business challenges. She handled the lay offs professionally and with great sensitivity for the employees. Katherine also designed measures to comply with SCC/ISO issues such as an ethical conduct policy and new confidentiality policies. She encouraged better communication between all departments mediating disputes and differences and starting a company wide newsletter…”Roger Mathur, President, Industrial Laboratories of Canada
