Deb and I worked together for over 10 years and she helped me hire my current HR coordinator.  She provided HR consulting services and then I hired her to develop and implement a human resources function for my organization.  Deb was quick to analyze what we needed and then put systems in place to make sure we were compliant with employment regulations.  Once the basics were established, she and I worked together to build a culture that employees wanted to be a part of.

It's a pleasure to recommend Deb Whitworth! I first hired her to do some comparative research on salaries in my organization and in our sector, then to work on updating our personnel manual, and finally as an ongoing HR consultant. She has helped us with various HR issues ever since, including health insurance negotiations and regulatory compliance. She has been a superb colleague - extremely responsive, supremely cheerful and always available. She has provided us with a ready source of expertise that was not available in-house before. Would I hire her again? You bet!

Deb put together a large group training session for our Managers and Supervisors to aid them in their day to day job duties and decision making. Deb knew the subject matter well and presented it in a way that was easily understood by all that attended. Everyone at the conference walked away with written reference materials used in the presentation. I would not hesitate to recommend Deb for future training.

I've enjoyed working with Deb for several years in both her roles as owner of HR Studio. We've worked on several projects ranging from company branding to editorial to event advertising, and more. She is professional and easy to work with, and we know working with Deb we will meet deadlines and produce an effective product.

HR Studio exceeded our expectations for Supervisory Training.  The class was interactive, creative and fun.  Training with a Twist gave real life examples of how to handle difficult situations.  Deb and her team really made it fun.
