“I am writing to let you know how much the Board of Congregation Emanu-El Synagogue appreciated the assistance we received from Jacqueline Hammond. We are grateful that she was able to come to Victoria to assist us through a difficult situation.
“For many months, the synagogue has been faced with the difficult task of severing our business relationship with a long-time contractor, who is also a member of our community. Jacqueline met with the individual concerned this past Tuesday.
“As important as her assistance was to achieving our objective, I would like to mention that Jacqueline provided calm reassurance about the process, and helped to allay our long-time concerns. For all of us, this was key.”
Vice President @ Congregation Emanu-El Board of Directors
“Our company was in need of formalizing and communicating our policies to our staff. Jacq Hammond played an instrumental role in working with our company to establish a new policy manual and creating employment contracts for all our employees. She even went the extra mile in presenting the policy manual to our staff, and made herself available outside of the presentation to answer any questions and concerns our staff had. Jacq has been a fantastic resource not only for these projects, but on day to day HR issues. It is great to know we have someone to call for good and timely advice on any HR issues we may have.”

“Our family owned a business and we wanted to wind down and close after 50+ years. We met with Jacq and she assessed the steps we would need to deal with the termination of our employees. She gave us great options, took care of the paper work, prepared the communications and attended the employee and union meetings. In the middle of this process we were approached by a company to buy our business. Jacq revised the process, negotiated with our union, and made the process stress free. I highly recommend Jacq; she is very professional and takes great care of her clients.”

“We at DanNel Coach Lines Company Ltd. were in need of a contract IT person for the implementation of a new software system. We approached DJB Human Resources Advisory Services and Jacq Hammond succeeded in locating a candidate for us in record time! We also were in need of a part time payroll clerk and again DJB came through! We were very pleased with the professional and prompt service! Many thanks!”

“We had a very serious matter to address with an employee. Because of the sensitivity of it, we were not sure where to start. Jacq Hammond had put on an HR Seminar that we attended, so, I sought her out for advice. She was extremely helpful and very accessible. It really helped to have someone as competent as Jacq providing us with advice. Thank you so much!”

“Recently we had the opportunity to use Jacq Hammond of Teddington Park Associates to help recruit two positions. As the owner of a small business, our time is a premium and the recruitment process can be extremely time consuming and costly.
“Jacq Hammond took time to visit our company and meet with key members of my team to get a feel for our company culture and to understand our business. She and her team were able to advertise the positions, perform preliminary screening, including telephone interviews to pare down the qualified candidates. We were then able to conduct minimal interviews and have now successfully hired two people through this process. Jacq Hammond and her team were professional, diligent and worked around the clock to ensure we had the best possible candidates for each of the positions. I would highly recommend Teddington Park Associates for those companies without the resources to have a dedicated HR person.”

“As a relative new and rapidly growing company, our human resources “to do list” seemed daunting…until we engaged Jacq Hammond and her team at Teddington Park Associates to assist us. Since that time they have been invaluable in helping with everything from day to day issues, compliance, training, employment agreements and policies and procedures. By relying on their expertise we have saved a considerable amount of time internally and we have confidence we are track.”
Erin Mitchell, Partner
“We attended a Human Resources seminar put on by Jacq Hammond. The information we received was invaluable to us. We were unaware at the time of how much we didn’t know. Jacq provided us with much needed information and guided us through a difficult human resources situation that we were experiencing. Thank you so much for all you have done for us. It has been such a great help. We are looking forward to your next seminar. Thanks so much for sharing your time and talents with us.”

“I just attended your seminar on Conflict Resolution and Performance Coaching. I thought it was amazing! I have now decided to discuss changing our current Performance Review program with our President, as I really liked the idea of an employee self-evaluation model, and the importance of setting goals at the beginning of the review cycle. Today I am having a performance review meeting with an employee and I have learned how to make it more of a” constructive encouragement meeting” than a “litany of complaints meeting”. I continue to learn more and more by attending Jacq’s seminars!”
