First Class HR Professional

I am pleased to recommend Jeff. I believe Jeff to be a first class HR professional and a pleasure to work with and for. We worked with Jeff and his company to provide executive education to his managers from many countries. Jeff allowed us to be successful and more importantly has considered and acted to make the participants of the program and his company be successful. He really understands organizational development and learning as a vehicle for profound change and ensures that the structures he puts in place are there to create resonance between all of the parts to enable that change. I know he has fulfilled many activities in his HR career and in my experience has done them with; thought, consideration for those with whom he has worked, a great sense of humor and with an eye to innovative practices, resulting in success. I have no hesitation in making this recommendation.

“Jeff is succinct, non-judgmental, and solution-oriented”

“Homestead Hospice has experienced rapid growth over the past 2 years, and to support this growing employee base we needed additional Human Resources support. Parsons and Associates came into Homestead and conducted a full evaluation of our management structure, employee documentation and existing department processes. With Jeff’s recommendations we expect to be able to continue our growth track and stay compliant in such a highly regulated industry.

Secondly, Jeff’s coaching and guidance to our management team regarding challenging employee performance issues has been invaluable. Not only have we improved our company documentation, but with Jeff’s guidance we are better equipped to proactively deal with future employee relations matters. Jeff is succinct, non-judgmental, and solution-oriented.

“Seriously, you can’t find a more genuine, compassionate and prompt person to help you”

“Don’t Miss Out. Hire Today. Mr. Parsons was very pleasant to work with. He definitely gave me the hospitality southern gentlemen are known to have.
Mr. Parsons conducted a phone consultation with me, going over my experience, my goals and my ideal job. We also discussed the goals for my resume and how I would like myself to be represented. At this time, I was able to present him with a few recommendations that were given to me. Mr. Parsons had quite the turn around time. The rough copy was to me in only 48 hours, and the final copies were sent within 24 hours of our discussion regarding the rough draft.
Not only has Mr. Parsons done a fantastic job at helping me with my resume, but he has also helped connect me to his vast network of acquaintances, employers and companies that he is associated with. This alone is worth the amount I spent on his services.
Seriously, you can’t find a more genuine, compassionate and prompt person to help you. You definitely want to hire Mr. Parsons”.
