Kathy has been an outstanding resource to Associated Medical Professionals for the past 7 years. As our company has evolved over the years to nearly 300 employees, she has provided guidance and support along the way. We utilize her expertise for the complicated compliance matters, general consulting services, and for providing educational presentations to our providers and staff. I highly recommend Strategic Management Solutions to any organization, regardless of their size or internal support that they may have.Christopher R. Williamson, Chief Operating Officer, Associated Medical Professionals of NY
As a new member of the company, I find Kathy and SMS invaluable. Not only does she have the in-depth knowledge of human resources and labor laws, she has the years of history with our company from which to draw. Kathy knows our industry and I trust and respect her opinions and decisions.Kim Pavlus, Director of Finance, Contact Community Services, Inc.
Kathy Barany is my "go to" resource for staff development and training. She always has good ideas and relevant material to share. She makes the sessions entertaining and fun and puts people at ease, so they feel comfortable fully participating and hopefully benefiting from her presentations. Some comments from my staff:
Shari Whiting, Controller and Director of Budgets, Hamilton College
- Good interactive session with relevant advice
- Covers topics without bias and with the desire to help us better ourselves
- Keeps things real
- Very good speaker and makes things interesting
- Informative, informal and friendly session which allows people to feel comfortable and want to participate
As the lead board member responsible for improving HR functions in 3 separate organizations where staffing was at a minimum, Kathy Barany provided the expertise and manpower needed to accomplish our HR projects. Kathy was key in keeping our organizations focused and on task and with budget. Kathy is easy going and a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to use Kathy in other organizations and would highly recommend her to anyone needing HR services.Anthony D. Franceschelli, President, F.L. Emerson Foundation, Inc.
By providing Metro Mattress with razor sharp guidance in the areas of Human Resource Management and Regulatory Compliance in the area of State and Federal Labor Law, Kathy Barany has made a profound impact upon our company and has become one of our most trusted, reliable and respected advisors. I can confidently provide an unqualified recommendation of Kathy to any company, regardless of the industry. If your business hasn't taken proactive measures to bring your organization into compliance with all applicable federal and State Labor Laws, then I highly recommend that you take that important first step toward improving the "fundamental foundation" of your business by bringing Kathy on to your team. I made that call a few years ago...and our company has benefited enormously by virtue thereof.David Shiroff, President/CEO, Metro Mattress
