Here are a few Tarran Group clients speaking:
Rob’s value far exceeds the services he provides to Verto360. I have come to discover that I cannot put a price on his wise counsel which stems from his depth of experience and knowledge in all aspects of HR. Rob has become a great asset and indispensible member of the Verto360 team.
Rob and I were colleagues at the London Free Press where I was Marketing Manager and he was Corporate Manager Human Resources. I valued the advice and strengths he brought to that role. When he became Managing Director of the Tarran Group, I was consulting and later became General Manager for Quantum Communications -- an independent advertising agency based in London and Toronto. They needed the help of an external HR consulting firm for a wide range of issues. Rob was brought in and delivered on all of their needs in cost effective, creative, proactive and practical ways. He works well with entrepreneurs and owners of small to medium sized businesses [especially given his own entrepreneurial experience]. Rob has wide range of business experience and I always appreciated his pragmatic approach.
We were referred to Rob Hiscox and the Tarran Group by our Public Relations firm several years ago when we needed someone to help us through a complex employee relations issue. We were pleased with the work performed and when we had similar issues we used Rob with similar results. Since January of 2011 we have used him as our Business and HR Advisor including coaching us on a wide range of issues whether they are HR only or general business. He has become a valuable part of the Dorken Systems team.
I have had the pleasure of working closely with Rob for a number of years. He is a (TA) trusted advisor for my TEC groups. Rob has a wealth of experience and a great perspective on Human Resource issues. I recommend Rob to my members who are need of guidance relating to HR issues , staffing , outplacement, recruiting , government policies and legislation , Rob will act as their in-house expert on these matters on a selected or part-time basis. Rob has integrity and is valued commodity to his clients.
Your work helping us develop Danapharm Clinical Research Inc.’s human resource approach allowed us to create a very professional organization in a highly competitive market - a market that had turnover rates in excess of 30% while ours was closer to 5%. The fact that we, with your direct input, were able to build a framework within an ISO 9000-2001 environment that was still flexible enough to meet the needs of a small but growing company was invaluable. As you are aware, we were able to sell Danapharm and transition it smoothly into a larger organization. I feel that this is a testament to your ability to work seamlessly with your clients and provide input and support in a cost effective manner.
