"Mary conducted a thorough investigation into a wrongful termination, discrimination complaint filed against our firm. Her report allowed us to enter into mediation talks with the statements, facts and details necessary to avoid litigation. Our mediator told us this was the most thorough investigation he had ever seen."

"When it comes to managing and improving the results of a workers' compensation insurance program, there are many options. However, few Human Resource executives have achieved the same successful results as Mary and her team. In the years I have worked with Mary, I have seen this client reduce the severity and frequency of work comp incidents through effective claim management procedures, consistent employee care, education and team collaboration. Mary had adopted a creative and hands-on approach with her clients along with a persistent partnership with all involved. This helped to reduce the workers' compensation insurance premium which is one of the largest expenses facing employers."

"I have had the privilege of working with Mary G. Russell for the last five years. I can personally attest to her honesty, integrity, compassion and good moral character. Professionally, she was ultimately responsible for managing workers' compensation claims from the cradle-to-the-grave. Her concern and compassion for the employees manifested itself in reduced frequency and reduced severity. Her communication to injured employees, brokers, adjusters, and underwriters set the "gold" standard for workers' compensation claims. Her focus on safety and loss prevention, even though administered by another co-worker, enabled the team to accomplish great results.
Kathy Mason, President, Mason Insurance Services
"Before our working relationship with Ms. Mary Russell, our Human Resources Department was non-existent. Through constant communication with Mary, I was able to relay information that was instrumental in the development of an effective and efficient Human Resources department. I was very impressed with her expertise and dedication to our needs. She took the time to address our questions and concerns. Even though we're in Indiana, Mary was always available when needed, even if just by phone. Mary provided guidance on successfully implement the Family Medical Leave Act procedures, reviewed and made recommendations to our personnel policy and provided consultation on various employee related issues. We are forever grateful for her patience and diligence with helping and Agency whose needs were so great."
