I struggled with two bad hires in a row for a critical position and reached out to Jeff and the Workforce Strategies International team for guidance. After only one call, I changed my approach to the assessment process. Not only did I find the right person for the role, but it was so successful that we’ve had to hire two additional people using the same process to handle the increase in our business.

The WFSI team helped me define the skills and competencies I needed in the first official hire for my business. As a small business owner trying to grow, their help was absolutely instrumental. I can’t recommend WFSI highly enough especially for small businesses – we so often struggle to know what we need and having someone who really understands how to organize a team and find good people is a Godsend. The WFSI had me sit down and define what the business needed and then helped me find it. I can’t say thank you enough.

In my work at PetroLMI, having the help of these competency masterminds was vital. They are leading with ideas and concepts that will positively enhance the Canadian workforce of the future. As a client, working with them was like having a world-class mentor at my fingertips.

WFSI knows the principles and practices of this business better than anyone I know. They embody a practical, results-orientated approach built from extensive research and a multitude of cross sector work experiences. The WFSI team is equally comfortable in the board room or on the front lines of any operation, and they can resolve systemic issues using exceptional people skills and well developed problem solving processes. They are able to see what needs to be done and then have the will, the discipline and competence to do it.

WFSI is great to work with. They bring a professional commitment to delivering a quality product that both the team and the client can be proud of. They were able to bring a think out-of-the-box perspective that enables us to save time and cost.

I have had the pleasure of working with Jeff several times over the years. He is a great consultant, always getting to the root cause of the issue he is consulting on. He covers every detail and that makes your job easier.

We worked with Jeff and his team in developing a uniform national certification program for Canada. Their support and contribution have helped us raise the bar on the competency of building code officials, and to reach international standards of excellence. Their ability to work with diverse groups on a range of regional and national concerns and his ability to achieve consensus and action for results is unique among the consultants we’ve worked with..

They’ve been Instrumental in helping an entire industry raise its level of competency by focusing on the most important touch-point for the transfer of skills and knowledge from one person to the other. Their OJT methods accelerated and improved the transfer, and has revolutionized the way employees learn and managers teach. Who would have thought that a program from the 40’s, updated for today, could be so effective? But it has, and the results have been phenomenal. Member companies are reporting huge gains in efficiency, productivity, communications, and sense of pride and accomplishment through this approach.

Our previous approach (basically ad hoc) produced a trained Operator in about 15 months. We work with hazardous chemicals and make a wide array of products, so safety and quality are a huge concern, and we reckoned that this was an acceptable amount of time.  After WFSI taught us the TWI approach, (it still sends chills down my spine that something originally created for World War II is still so effective) we’re not consistently training new operators in 6 months or less. Our training is more consistent, rework is down, quality is up, and we haven’t had a lost time accident in years.
