Here’s what our clients have to say:

“Thank you for the two different services strategic HR has provided to Cincinnati Nature Center over the past year. Our relationship began with your providing outsourcing human resources services as we transitioned to professional resource management.  In addition your team helped lead our search for 2 key positions.  Your team provided counsel in writing job descriptions, determining and reviewing the criteria, posting the position, calling applicants, and then doing phone screening to narrow the field.  Your team found new resources and was open to our providing sources we had previously identified.  Your counsel is always appropriate and well received.”
