"I am happy to recommend Kathi Crawford and People Possibilities as a great resource for a variety of HR and Talent Management functions. Kathi helped me ensure I had a fully functional HR structure for our newly incorporated company in Texas and has helped me place people in several key positions. She has great ideas, is a wonderful collaborator, remains calm under tight deadlines and fun to work with! "

"In catering, as in many industries, staff turnover is high. While we had a great core group of employees who had been with us for many years, we needed to recruit staff to handle the growth in business. We were experiencing a lot of employee turnover and the frustration of trying to find the right person for the right job. Recruiting new employees meant taking time away from growing the business. Our marketing company recommended Kathi and People Possibilities. Kathi stepped in to help us identify what we needed and a strategy to get there. With Kathi’s guidance we have developed systems and processes for recruiting and retaining great employees; written job descriptions for each position and employee handbook. Today we have very little turnover because we have the tools to help us find the right person for the right job. I am now able to focus on growing our business, knowing that if an HR issue arises I can rely on People Possibilities to provide us with a sound solution. I consider them our on call HR department."
Kim George, President at Catering by George

"When Marek was struggling to identify the role we were looking to fill in the area of workforce development I was fortunate to get connected to Kathi. Her vast experience in this area and her coaching expertise created a great deal of clarity for us.

Kathi helped us create a position description and a process around identifying and sourcing candidates, followed by a very effective screening regimen. The unintended result was a fabulous team exercise that built consensus around our position, goals, and our ultimate candidate of choice.

I would highly recommend Kathi to anyone with just about any need in the HR/Leadership arena. She will help you in ways you don't even know you need:-)"
