Why Choose SHR: Testimonials
"Patra is one of a select group of people who understand the critical relationship between the human resources function and business strategy. She has worked with us on several different occasions over the past decade in stepping up to new business growth challenges. We keep bringing her back because she understands our business, looks for ways to help us achieve our goals effectively, is ethical, and works well with our diverse staff."
- Verle Hammond, CEO, Innolog
"As new COO of a rapidly-growing 3-year-old company, I initially retained Patra to provide interim HR coverage and assist us in hiring an HR Director. Patra assessed our business needs and HRM risks, helped us create goals and address the needs to provide structure and consistency in the company's HR procedures. Patra led efforts to create a job-position hierarchy, an associated merit pay structure, an Employee Guide, and the company's first formal management training. Her quick grasp of the company's needs, her ability to work supportively with the new HR Director and me, and her ongoing wise counsel were vital contributors to the company's continued successful growth."
- Jon R. Asher, CEO Consultant
"I hired Patra to upgrade my human resources practices as GMSI really began to grow and she did that very successfully. But I also got a lot more -- she helped my executive team develop our ability to deal with critical issues, she trained our managers to hire and manage people much more effectively, and she helped me 'let go' of many smaller decisions so I could really be a CEO."
- Hilton Augustine, CEO, GMSI
"As a frequent conference organizer/ program chair, I have repeatedly hired Patra. Audiences respond to Patra's content richness, professionalism, and her engaging style of presentation with appreciation and attention. She has received excellent reviews from participants at annual meetings, management roundtables, and seminars."
