Working with Jess from JSD over the past year has been an absolute pleasure. Her strategic approach has reshaped my understanding of HR’s potential impact on an organization. Jess swiftly gained the respect and trust of our team, seamlessly integrating like an internal team member rather than an “outside” consultant. As CEO, having quality HR support has been a huge relief, and I would strongly recommend JSD to any leader seeking quality HR guidance and support.

As my creative agency grew, we got to the point where I could no longer handle all of the HR duties by myself. We were so blessed to be introduced to Jennifer Doherty and her crew at JSD Human Resources. Jennifer made it so easy to get up and running. We got to work directly with Jennifer, which was amazing. Other HR services we had experimented with over the years tried to fit us into their set programs, but Jennifer was extremely flexible to meet us where we were at and deliver exactly what we were looking for. Some highlights included rebranding our HR Department to become People+ Experience. Jennifer and her team worked hard to make our people the focus of everything we did, while providing our people with an incredible experience day in and day out. Jennifer and I had a regular bi-weekly meeting to go over all open initiatives and to do items. She accomplished everything we asked for, and much, much more. We could not recommend Jennifer at JSD Human Resources highly enough. I encourage you to give her a try – you’ll be glad that you did.

Jennifer is an invaluable asset to our business. As our agency started to grow in headcount we considered hiring a fulltime HR Manager but ultimately determined that what Jennifer and her team at JSD can deliver on a fractional basis far exceeded our expectations. Her ability to build and implement an HR framework from the ground up, own and execute on HR projects, and most critically, provide regular strategic HR-related advice has allowed us to continue to grow and focus on other areas of our business with confidence. I highly recommend any business to consider working with Jennifer and JSD Human Resources.

I can’t say enough about my positive experience with Jennifer as our HR Consultant for The Travel Store. Jennifer understood our unique challenges immediately, and really took ownership of helping to improve not only our HR function but the business generally. She has coached and guided me in making future plans, advised on how to address difficult issues, and reassures me at every step of the way. Her experience shines through, and she confidently forges ahead in finding solutions that make sense. I have felt that this has been a partnership, that she truly cares about the success of my business, and that she will be there to coach and advise me long into the future. I really feel I hit the jackpot in working with Jennifer!

Jennifer’s friendly and outgoing nature proved to be a great resource on the project as she has a way of making clients feel comfortable combined with her extensive knowledge of Human Resources, Labour issues and compensation planning knowledge allowed us to provide the client with an excellent report that was presented to the Town’s Human Resources Committee. I would happily work with Jennifer again in the future.
