what clients are saying

"HR Annie was extremely pleasant and phenomenal to work with on recruiting both a new Bookkeeper and an HR Manager for our team. If you’re looking for thorough full-cycle recruitment support, I highly recommend working with them!"

- Paul Reiter, CEO, Great Notion Brewing

"HR Annie has been an outstanding resource for talent recruitment for my company. When I first approached them about it I was skeptical because I find our recruiting needs incredibly specific and technical.

Then I began conducting interviews with candidates brought to us and it was one amazing candidate after another. I was floored. The candidates brought to us are strong and amazing members of our team. HR Annie has our gratitude for our partnership, and I look forward to partnering with them as we grow."

- Jonathan Jedekin, CEO,  Davinci Digital

"We have been using HRA for almost a year and we have been extremely impressed! We are a growing start-up that has used both HR consulting and recruitment services. Our managers have been extremely impressed with the quality of the candidates that we've been getting and it's so nice to be able to scale up and down as needed. They are true business PARTNERS in every sense of the word--they know our business, culture, and policies and are able to utilize that knowledge to give us sound advice and secure the best talent! I'm so grateful we found them."

- Jessica Clark, Controller,  HighLevel

"We had an extremely positive experience working with the team. We needed a position (in a high-demand field) filled in a very short timeline. They got to work immediately and had us candidates within a matter of days. They are extremely responsive, positive, and professional!"

- Clinical Director, Calico Mental Health Associates

"We transitioned from doing our own staff recruitment to working with HR Annie’s staff recruitment services and couldn’t be happier!

They are expert at effective recruitment strategies, staying attuned to what is happening in the market place, proactively recruiting when needed, and sourcing candidates that are adeptly matched to your organizations culture and skills you desire. HR Annie staff are strategic thinkers and can help you assess and sometime reassess your needs.

As the first point of contact with candidates, HR Annie staff are professional warm and welcoming and the know the value of timely follow through.

If you are considering outsource your staff recruitment efforts I highly recommend HR Annie.  Give them a try and you will receive highly skilled recruitment services that are tailored to your business needs and organizational culture."

They are our first choice for our next search and we would highly recommend them to anyone either conducting an employee search, or simply needing recruitment guidance."

- Invaluable People, CEO, Don Jones

"The True Calling team helped us identify, phone screen, and eventually hire two fantastic candidates! It was refreshing to work with recruiters felt like an extension of our team with Foghorn's best interests in mind. Jessica and Carly were friendly, quick to respond, and helped dramatically sped up the hiring process."

- Foghorn Labs, Founder, Adam Lewis

- Neighborhood Health Center, HR Director, Angela Hall

"True Calling Recruitment was a hiring LIFE SAVER. With a scaled-down post-covid leadership team, finding capacity to properly hire was next-to-impossible. We came to them when the company was in dire need of filling multiple positions. They made the hiring process simple, exciting, and effective. Their high-touch communication, recruitment expertise, and personable demeanor made a once-stressful situation SO positive. Not only did they find us several perfect fits for the roles we were looking to fill, from part-time associations to full-time leadership positions, but they provided us the tools to streamline our hiring process in the future."

- BurnCycle, Director, Kelsey Poggi

"Elisa from the True Calling team is an amazing professional, highly effective at achieving positive business outcomes for Corios in finding candidates that are in our hiring sweet spot, and also a pleasure to work with. I also value that they work alongside the amazing team at HR Annie who runs the ship on Corios' behalf for onboarding, training and overall HR management. It's a one-stop-shop of the best HR team I could ever find!"
