What our clients say:

The PG factor would always be in every employers mind when an employee is not performing. When this became a possibility we called in Russell Drake Consulting to sort out the issue from the outset and it was definitely a good call. Call Russell Drake Consulting when a potential employee issue arises rather than later when it's out of control, this can be soul destroying as an employer.  Alsynite NZ Ltd
