It is with great pleasure to recommend Energize HR for talent and performance management solutions! Jill Koob, Founder, President of Energize HR, introduced DiSC Profiles to me as a tool for leadership development within my organization. We have had great success in rolling out the DiSC Profiles within our leadership and look forward to introducing to all levels of employees. Jill has been a great business partner in providing consultation that meets our organization’s needs.

Working with Energize HR and Jill was a wonderful and insightful experience. Our team went through the TallasureMX assessment and found it to be truly invaluable.

The insights into what skillsets we need to improve upon in our individual roles was spot on — especially since it is tailored towards your position in a company. 

Our company is now making this assessment a part of our hiring process for our staff.

This has led to our employees feeling more secure and benefiting from the onsite training Energize HR offers. We are a stronger company today and I believe Jill Koob and her team are a big part of our continued success.
