"Not only are McGrath consultants organized, objective, and technically qualified, they are advisors. Our organization was at a crossroads with our culture and direction. The McGrath report and consultants were pivotal in support of our Mayor, Human Resources staff, and Police Administration in moving the organization forward in a swift and tangible way. McGrath went above and beyond to communicate frequently, at each phase of the study, and was able to debrief the report for all stakeholders, in order to successfully understand and implement the recommended improvements. Their final report was a clear roadmap that our new leadership could implement right away for necessary change. I highly recommend Ron Moser and his team for any organization looking for a similar assessment with actionable outcomes."
Candis Martinson
Director of Human Resources & Risk Management, City of Auburn, WA

"I was apprehensive about having an outside firm and people from a different region of the country come in and criticize my department. But with McGrath, I met people who truly cared about me and my department. People who did not tear us down or criticize us. People who wanted to help us be better, find new ways to move my department forward, and discover a new perspective on how to not only take care of my department, but to better serve our city and citizens, which is what we should all be striving to do. I came away with solid recommendations on how to make things better for myself, my department, and the community I have served for 29 years. I didn't just receive a report and suggestions. I connected with knowledgeable people who care and who have become trusted advisors and colleagues. This was one of the best things that could have happened for me and for the men and women of this department."

We also hired McGrath to recruit a Police Chief. They generated more interest in the job than we expected and the quality of candidates far surpassed our expectations. We would definitely use McGrath again in the future.."
