Client Testimonials

“…Having an outside, independent perspective (has been) very useful. We were able to benefit from having a consultant who was professional and objective, yet who also understood our culture.  Another benefit to CSBS of working with TPO was that, in addition to benefiting from our consultant, we were also able to gain access to their internal and external network of experts in other key areas.  I would say we truly benefitted from TPO’s collective experience, not just the individual with whom we were working.” – John Ryan, President & CEO of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) on Outsourcing HR to TPO

“I joined APTA as CEO several months ago, and in my experience TPO has been consummately professional. The fact that TPO served as our outsourced HR function actually helped with my transition to the CEO role. TPO brought objectivity and independence.” – J. Michael Bowers, CEO of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), on Outsourcing HR to TPO

“Having a trusted strategic partner like TPO makes us stronger in the business community. If we need them they’re there. TPO is an organization of professionals that can make a difference with our clients. At the end of the day, we back each other up and do what’s best for the client.” – Sarah Kaplan, Vice President of Kaplan Benefits Group, LLC on Partnering with TPO

“(TPO CEO) Dana (Papke) and her team are great to work with.  They’ve come in and helped us think more strategically about connecting our people priorities to our business objectives.  Before TPO, we were using another firm whose definition of HR was ‘compliance.’ That’s not wrong, but HR is about much more. Every business decision we make is an HR decision. I had a sense we could do something more with HR.  TPO and Dana were the only company we spoke to that understood what I was looking for—a more holistic and strategic view.” – Mike Holmes, CEO of Virginia Tire and Auto

“We enjoy working with forward-looking firms like TPO (because they are) looking at innovating solutions to common problems like how to handle employee onboarding so new employees reach peak productivity faster. TPO has been a terrific business partner. They make a promise, they keep a promise.” – Bob Corlett, Founder and President of Staffing Advisors, on Partnering with TPO

“I’ve gotten to know TPO intimately, and it has been instrumental in making my company what it is today.  My contacts with their consultants have been fabulous. TPO has constantly helped clients with the strategic side of HR–they know how to get a seat at the table, which is something many HR executives and consultants struggle with. Perhaps most importantly, they don’t stay stagnant. They look at themselves over time and shift the model when needed.” – Becky Choi, Founder of groupforward, LLC, on Partnering with TPO

“The results have been great. The employees who’ve experienced the onboarding program are very positive about the impact it’s had. And from a management perspective, we can help new hires become more productive more quickly and can identify bad hires sooner.” – John Ryan, President & CEO of the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS) on TPO’s Employee Onboarding Process

“In talking to several HR consulting firms, we found that TPO’s CEO Dana Papke stood out as being very professional and very knowledgeable. And we had a sense just by getting to know Dana that TPO was a good environment—and that one of their consultants would probably be a good fit for our organization.” – Bonnie Polvinale, VP of Member Relations and former Acting CEO of the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), on Outsourcing HR to TPO

TPO is helping us make a transition. Candidly, I was skeptical at first about what they said they could accomplish to reduce turnover, but they’ve more than fulfilled expectations. I’m from Missouri, the “Show Me” state, and they’ve certainly shown me.” – Myron Boncarosky, Chairman/Founder of Virginia Tire and Auto

“TPO’s approach clearly transcends traditional human resources support, falling more into the category of intelligent business planning. We not only have high quality employee programs, but these have been aligned with our strategic objectives to produce measurable business results and have been used to support and sustain our organization’s rapid growth.” – Randy Swisher, Executive Director, American Wind Energy Association
