“Our accounting firm, Atchley & Associates, LLP recognized that we needed training for our first time managers and some of our senior managers to insure we all stayed culturally focused and did the job right, focusing on our people first. We found Marcia as a promising source of this training. Marcia performed three half-day training sessions that were specifically tailored to our Firm and it accomplished everything we could have hoped for. Our staff gave accolades on the learning they received and I believe it set a foundation for our managers to grow from. We are excited about the future, thanks to Marcia.” – Harold Ingersoll, CPA/ABV/CFF, CVA, CM&AA, Lead Partner, Atchley & Associates, LLP

“While so many of us have been through performance evaluations and goal-setting trainings, Marcia brought forward best practices in a very concise but complete manner. Her modules are well thought out, relevant to each business, and a great mix of presentation, discussion and exercise. We would most definitely recommend Marcia and HR Directions to any organization looking to accelerate their people management efforts.”- Andy Miller, previously CEO, Any Baby Can, now Head of Healthcare & Social Services Giving, The Morris Foundation
“The SAFE Alliance contracted with HR Directions to provide guidance around some substantial changes to the agency’s HR processes; assisting in the development of agency-wide core competencies; for the recruitment and selection of the agency’s chief human resource officer; developing and training staff on hiring based on “core competencies” and more. Marcia’s insight was instrumental for The SAFE Alliance to execute these changes, and her work was both timely and impeccable. It really helps when a consultant also makes it easy on the customer, is enjoyable to work with, and quickly figures the client out. Marcia’s personality is a good as is her work product. We recommend Marcia and HR Directions without hesitation.” – Julia Spann, President, The SAFE Alliance
