“We’ve become the on-demand provider buyers seek”

Scott Wintrip has served as our advisor for the past few years. Not only has he given us outstanding advice on how to make our company more effective and efficient, he has also helped us manage our explosive growth so it would not overwhelm our capabilities. Most importantly, he has guided us on how to be more responsive to customers, allowing us to become more of the on-demand provider that buyers seek.

—Staci Thornton, CPA, CFO and Partner, IMKO Workforce Solutions

“We are a better company and I am a better leader as a result of working together.”

His strategic advice on how to drive continuous improvement and innovative insights for High Velocity Hiring have been invaluable.

“Scott helps companies be more nimble, responsive, and competitive”

—Mark Braund, CEO, InterQuest Group UK

“I am more sure of the hiring decisions I make now than I was before working with Scott”

I am responsible for hiring Sales and Recruiting Team Members for our company. Scott helped me re-structure the recruiting process I previously followed to fill these positions, and the result is that I am more sure of the hiring decisions I make now than I was before working with Scott. The interview questions, timelines and candidate follow up tasks that are part of the recruiting process that Scott suggested help me better understand each candidate, what each candidate’s behavior will likely be in a work setting and whether or not a candidate is the best fit for our company. After I made my first hire using this process, Scott also helped me create a training schedule to get our new Team Member on board and up-to-speed more quickly than before. The result was that this new Team Member joined our Sales Team and began gaining momentum in our Sales Department at a previously unprecedented pace, and I now have a training process I can replicate to get all future hires up-to-speed.

—Amy Grussing, Vice President, PMG

“Scott is able to cut through your clutter and forge a path.”

As a business owner, one can easily get lost in the minutiae of running your business. Sometimes you can visualize your goal, but not how to get there. Scott is able to cut through your clutter and forge a path. His suggestions are practical, based on real-world experience and most important, achievable. Especially when it comes to being a provider of on-demand hiring. But only work with him if you’re serious about change and success.

—Kim Jones, Kim Ozias Jones, PT, President, RehabAbilities

“Able to recruit and hire the right staff”

When we first met Scott we had been trying to develop a sales culture within our organization and create a compensation plan to incentive our sales force. Our compensation plan, created with the help and guidance of Scott, has been implemented! It’s been a huge success and we’ve been able to recruit and hire the right staff to take our sales force and culture to the next level.

—Donald L. Mooney, President and CEO, NURSES Etc

“Thorough understanding of best practices in recruiting cannot be matched”

Scott has not only changed the direction of my career in the two years we have worked together, but more importantly, he has changed the direction of my entire firm, providing each employee with a positive outlook and more substantial goals, all of which I have gained under his tutelage.

I was a decent producer and a less-than-par manager when Scott and I met. Regrettably, the overall office did not fare much better. However, within a short time, Scott provided critical industry knowledge and a plan for making some long- and short-term adjustments. He has a thorough understanding of best practices in recruiting and his experience within in the field cannot be matched. Scott is not one of those consultants who strings you along in a program, offering little nuggets of information here and there, which will only be explored further in a later session. Rather, he is ready and willing to share his expertise, explaining concepts in a way that can easily be digested, immediately be reproduced, and quickly be relayed. By design, this has moved the entire company forward with a shared vision. Scott is a true mentor. I can now say with confidence that I am a leader in both production and management, as the ideas and innovations I have gleaned from Scott are truly practiced and preached by everyone in the office.

—Korey Wright – Partner, Infusive Solutions

“Fabulous in giving us a sounding board”

Scott is fabulous in giving us a sounding board and access to his smarts. Having him on retainer is like having an insurance policy that, unlike fire insurance, only gets used after the fire.

—Niki Davidson, Regional Director, Allstates Technical Services, Telecom Division (a KBR company)

“We experienced tremendous growth, improved operational efficiencies, and higher profits”

Scott is an outstanding advisor that I highly recommend to any company looking to improve and grow.

—Melissa Peirce, Senior Partner, The Wellspring Group

“Scott is at the top of his game and can be so many things to so many organizations”

I and my firm have worked with Scott Wintrip for over a decade years. Scott is a consultant who takes a very different approach to his business and business relationships. He has provided everything from education to our sales and recruiting professionals to mentoring and coaching with our senior leaders and myself over the years. The thing I like best about Scott is that he listens and truly gets to know and intimately understand the organizations he is working with. He has worked with us on setting up new divisions, helped with designs for compensation plans, conducted strategic planning with our senior team, organization changes, and worked in a one-on-one capacity with some of our executives. All of this to say that Scott is at the top of his game and can be so many things to so many organizations. He is really a one-stop-shop and a top professional when it comes to his knowledge, trends, performance metrics, and more. I plan to work with him for another decade at least!!
