Jennifer Brown’s session, “The 8 Tactics to Overcome Costly Mistake”, at the Business Fundamentals Boot Camp was extremely beneficial. I learned about common, yet critical, issues that small business face and how to approach them. These included topics from “compliance with new laws” to “hiring right”. Jenifer provided insightful scenarios and answers to questions about what to do first, second and third to improve our management and HR practices. Jennifer is an extremely engaging and knowledge speaker. Her style is both professional and relatable as her level of expertise shines though in her answers to questions from the audience. I would enjoy hearing her speak again. During her session, I felt that she is someone who really cares about helping small businesses succeed and has the professional expertise to do so.— Ellen Byington, Co-Founder & Project Director,

With the growth of business, even without being an employer, having a work environment that would attract new assistants or any new employee is very important. Not only has Jennifer thoroughly explained what an employer is looking for but she has also explained what an employee is looking for and looking at in a new position. From the interviewing and reference checking process all the way to making the work space welcoming for a new hire, there are so many details that was touched by Jennifer’s presentation. As a business insurance agent, one of the major issues that my clients have is finding the right employee and training him into a better employee. Jennifer’s tips and strategies on the hiring process, benefits, engaging workforce, progressive discipline, verbal counsels, identification of the right compositions and complying with the laws were absolutely great to know, even to apply on an assistant. I definitely would love to hear more from her on how to maintain a strong bond with employees! Thank you!

I had the privilege of hearing Jennifer speak to a group of business owners on the importance of HR awareness within a company. Jennifer is very knowledgeable and hit on several key topics that had the audience wanting more. As a business owner myself, if you are not 100% on task with today’s HR regulations then you better contact Jennifer. She will not only educate your team but save you in the long run.

Learning Lessons in Business
For me as a small business, understanding the ins and outs of HR was extremely difficult. I worried about not having the right forms and papers in place to protect me and my business. Jennifer was wonderful to work with. She took me through the entire process and created a full HR manual with ease and grace. I now have all of the documents and HR protection one needs and the confidence that goes along with them. I cannot thank Jen enough for her patience, professionalism and expertise.
— Deborah Ginsburg, Founder and CEO,
Thank you for the great information. The phone questions were very helpful (I’ll definitely check out that book, Who). Your presentation was really engaging and informative – thanks for making the NAWBO meeting such a good one!

Working with PeopleTactics has strengthened our HR systems and practices. I worked with them on updating our employee handbook and recruiting process. Their attention to detail and thoughtfulness removed the stress out of ensuring we were compliant, and hiring the right people I also take their expertise on general HR management, which has afforded me a valuable sound board. I’m grateful for their sound counsel.— Jennifer Collins, CMP,

Jen Brown has been a great resource for our nonprofit organization. She helped us take a comprehensive look at our HR practices and policies, and offered clear directions for strengthening our systems. We’ve so appreciated her listening ear and wise advice when we’ve encountered specific HR challenges.

Lions, tigers, and bears, oh my! While creating an employee handbook isn’t impossible, it can be for the inexperienced like me. We are a small company with employees in multiple states which did make the task more difficult. However, we were referred to Jen by our broker and made the whole process as smooth. Jen was able to put together a draft template that covered all of the states and unique situations we encounter. After a few revisions we had a handbook up and running. The great part is it doesn’t stop there; Jen is now our HR expert on call to help with any situation that may develop in the future.— Michael Medina, Operations Manager,

WJ Technologies L.L.C. enlisted the help of Jennifer Brown from PeopleTactics to conduct a compensation survey for our firm. We operate in a highly specialized niche market and were unable to find compensation surveys in our market area.Jennifer’s access to extensive databases and years of experience allowed her to analyze and build a customized survey specifically for our firm. This analysis has allowed us to focus on retaining and engaging high achievers while remaining competitive.— Karen Louis, Managing Member,

Jennifer was referred to my company as a top HR specialist. We invited her to prepare a presentation for our 600+ business partners overviewing critical HR considerations for small class and camp businesses. Jennifer thoroughly covered all topics from hiring to insurance and morale and everything between. She was well prepared and full of resources and tools. She made otherwise intimidating information easily accessible by our busy multi-tasking small business owners.— ILene Miller, Co-Founder,

My goal as an HR Manager is to ensure that our employees have the resources that they need to succeed, and that our company has the right structures in place to make sure that the company’s best interest is always protected. Having PeopleTactics as a resource gives me the confidence to know that we are doing everything we can to grow and protect our company and support our employees. Jen Brown’s responsiveness, thoroughness, and sensitivity in addressing a wide variety of personnel and compliance matters has been invaluable to me as an HR manager, and has also quickly won the trust of our company’s executives. In addition to providing excellent service and timely advice, PeopleTactics has also referred us to top-notch professionals to help us with more specific concerns, such as providing us with an excellent sensitivity training facilitator. I am proud to admit that PeopleTactics is now on my short list of speed dial contacts. We are so grateful for the many ways that Jen has already helped us, and look forward to continuing the relationship in the future.— Kristin Anderson, Human Resources Manager,
