Thank you for making working with an outside agency seamless! You know exactly what I’m looking for and you don’t send me people at unscheduled times unprepared that don’t fit with us. So THANK YOU!


I want to acknowledge your on site team for a seamless transition running the reports for payroll. The invoice audit went flawlessly, and your entire team has been extremely helpful during the recent changes. Well done!!


The KEY organization has given me throughout my short time with Whirlpool a valuable staffing experience. "Can't do it" is a phrase you don't use in your vocabulary which allows you to keep your head above water in this Whirlpool...literally! Thank you for all you do and for what you'll continue doing. Also to those whom I didn't copy in this email, forward on my thanks.


I wanted to thank you for finding Michelle for us! I would like to start Michelle full time on Monday the 19th. We were just talking about this same subject this week. Also in the future we will call you first for our temp to hire. I have told other departments about your service.


Thank you so much for inviting us to lunch and to tour your office. (We had a great time.) Your office is awesome; we are jealous! Thank you so much for sending me Alex’s resume even though I didn’t have an opening. You always know the perfect person for our office. The timing was perfect. I am so excited to have him on my team. YOU ROCK! Thanks again for everything you ladies do for us. We are honored to work/partner with Key Personnel.
