    Jared Simon

    COO and Co-Founder

    “Although I’ve worked with several other HR firms, I haven’t seen another one that offers the kind of hybrid approach that hrQ brings. I would unconditionally work with them again.

    John and the whole hrQ team turned out to be a perfect partner for us. He and his team have the kind of credibility that we were looking for to attract the type of candidate who would fit the culture within our company”

    Katy Theroux

    Chief Human Resources Officer

    “When we need top quality HR professionals, we supplement with hrQ. The team at hrQ knows what good human resources talent looks like. They always bring us top-level talent, whether it’s through search or project work. Without hesitation, I would use hrQ again for any additional HR needs and will continue to recommend them.”

  • Black Creek Capital and Dividend Capital Group

    Cammie Redpath

    CHRO

    “When it comes to sourcing the best HR talent, I can think of no other firm that knows the landscape better than hrQ. We partnered with hrQ to manage an HR search from start to finish. My experience was remarkable and I was impressed to have a deep pool of very talented candidates to choose from. I expected the search process to take upwards of 3 months. Fortunately, the recruiting cycle was accelerated given hrQ’s deep candidate pipeline and extensive network. We were able to onboard our new member approximately 7 weeks after the search kicked off, which was very beneficial to our business.”

    Whitney Shelley

    Vice President and CHRO

    “We brought hrQ on board to help facilitate the upgrade of our HR information system. We wanted a business partner who could focus on both the technology and staffing aspects of the project to ensure everything went smoothly. We were very impressed with hrQ. I have worked with many vendors over the years, and I feel that hrQ really stands out in terms of their customer service. Whenever we needed something, hrQ was present, ready to go, and asking all the right questions. We could tell they were truly invested in our success instead of how quickly they could complete the project. We had a great experience with them all the way around.”

I was very impressed with the professionalism and due diligence that I encountered working with John Anderson at hrQ. John thoroughly prepared me for my interviews and kept me updated on the search which entailed multiple interviews and thorough reference checking. Given all the information that John provided to me during the process, when this search resulted in an offer, it was an easy decision for me to accept."
