  • We have used Eileen's company, the HR Team, since May of 2005 when we had a need for someone to take of care of our Benefit Administrative needs. Everyone that represents Eileen's company has been competent, reliable, personable, detail oriented and most importantly a great communicator. Obviously, consultants have other customers also, but we have never had a problem with conflict because of their ability to communicate schedules and any problems with us ahead of time. To be an effective consultant, I think you need to be able to handle "chaos". Everyone at the HR Team thrives in this area.

    - Paul McGee, Director, Human Resources

  • Eileen and her team provided us great service when needed in the HR field. Eileen offered clear and sound advice on complex issues my company faced. We could not have resolved personnel issues with the ease that we did, if it were not for the solutions offered by Eileen and her professional staff. I am confident that Eileen will provide the same level of excellent service to all that need it.
