We hired Alan to step in to cover for a departing employee. We needed a very specialized set of skills, someone that could help us with learning and development, understood training, coaching and human resources, as well as had knowledge of systems and could help us develop, deploy and maintain our performance management system. He had two weeks of training and then had to hit the ground running. We thought we would use Alan for a few months – we kept him on board for over a year.
He provided exactly what we needed and was very gracious about providing his services on a flexible time frame to fit our needs. Alan stepped in seamlessly and had a great ability to work with all levels of our organization. He worked independently, with a strong understanding of when to seek clarification or approval. Alan is extremely service oriented. He far exceeded our expectations in terms of his skills, ability to integrate with the organization, output and delivery.
During his time with us, he not only deployed the Performance Management system including user training and support, but also helped us develop an entire competency library for our organization. His work was always highest quality, on time and to budget. Alan is passionate about his work and brings great ideas, but also understands how to listen, stay open and gain buy-in. I would offer my unqualified recommendation for Alan. He is a joy to work with and I can’t wait to work with him again.
