"For the past 5 years manufacturing in Ontario has faced many challenges; slow sales, reduced margins, reductions in the work force etc. These swings have made long term business planning difficult. We needed a resource that could help us plan through these difficult “times”. Someone that could work on short notice, support in a variety of roles such as; finding new potential job candidates from a co-op student to a CNC Machinist, help structure and support a Joint Health and Safety Committee, provide a working knowledge of the Employment Standards and legislations and still show compassion to a worker being laid off. Jodi has provided this support for me for the past 5 years. Her perspective and guidance with all of the above has been invaluable."
Jim Russell, Plant Manager, Gypsum Technologies Inc.
"As a small professional association, we have been able to capitalize on the resources of an HR professional, without having a full time expense. Jodi provides reliable advice and support for hiring, job descriptions, compensation, daily employee relations, training and development and other human resource areas."
Leadership Team, CSMLS
"Jodi has worked for us on a contract basis for a number of years; she has always been very professional and reliable. No matter what the issue, she is always attentive, resourceful, and gets results. I would recommend her to anyone that needed human resources expertise."
Lee Brain, HESS Millwork
"Owning an independent women and men´s clothing store means wearing many hats! One area that needed some polish was our human resources policies and procedures. Jodi Posavad was able to develop our employee handbook, direct us in the areas of policies that needed refining, kept us informed of updated legislative changes and more. Jodi also saw us through the hiring process for a contract position on our local BIA – the organization is very happy with the outcome! Since small businesses cannot often afford human resources departments, a consultant like Jodi Posavad is a positive solution for expert advice"
"Jodi was always available when required and responded quickly when matters were of an expedited nature. She dealt equally effectively with internal clients as well as external clients including attorneys and government agencies where she had an impressive 100% success rate."
