Client Perspectives


"Marc most recently facilitated out strategic planning process and managed the recruitment process for a key management position... After a lengthy search, the person he recommended ...was hired, he is making great strides toward growing our business dramatically. Marc takes a low-key, patient approach to being a change agent, even when he feels strongly about what actions are needed. He has an impressive network of advisors and business resources he can call on. I enthusiastically recommend Marc Harding as a business consultant."



"Marc Harding's ability to see the long term potential, personality, attributes and work ethic in each individual hired was a tremendous asset in allowing management to maintain the stability needed for the continued rapid growth of the company."

"Marc immediately provided the professional HR and business advice required to support this growing company. He was able to not only "be" the HR executive but also help to train our existing HR and administrative people."



" When I joined the Company, a manufacturing facility and office with 230 people, as President and CEO there was no human resource function and very few HR policies and procedures. With Marc's expert guidance and hands on assistance we created a human resource position hired an individual to fill the role and provided expert counsel and development of the person. He developed a multitude of policies and procedures, which created discipline from chaos. Marc guided the company through the creation of a Total Compensation system, implemented a corporate-wide recruiting process, and ensured we were in compliance with a variety of laws. Marc's work was always professionally done in a very timely manner and of the highest quality."



" During difficult economic times, Marc guided us through the difficult and unpleasant task of down sizing our company. With his experience and expertise we met our cost reduction goals in a very professional and compassionate manner. As with most companies, we were experiencing exponential medical benefit cost increases each year. To combat these increases, I asked Marc to help us redesign our entire benefit package. He did so and the solutions that we implemented helped bring costs under control while, at the same time, keeping fairness and employee welfare as our guiding principles. I would highly recommend Marc for his expertise in dealing with the plethora of issues surrounding your human resources systems."

" I have known Marc Harding for approximately five years, during this time I've had the opportunity to work closely with him over a period of about twelve-fifteen months. In my role as COO for a 35 million dollar pump company I requested he come in and complete an assessment of our Human Resource systems. He completed this assessment and made a number of recommendations that we asked him to assist in implementing. These included a complete revision of our Compensation and Benefits system, changes in our performance planning system, revision of the employee handbook and recruitment of a couple of key people for the organization. This included a person to carry on the Human Resource changes that were recommended in his initial assessment. He mentored this person for about twelve months and continues to work on an as needed basis for the company. Marc's work has always been of the highest quality and timely. "

"In the past 7 years we were fortunate to experience very rapid growth both domestically and abroad.  We needed help to support the infrastructure for this rapid, consistent growth." 

"ADI turned to the Harding Group, LLC a little over 3 years ago.  Marc Harding has used his years of experience to assist us in vetting and hiring new employees and keeping us abreast of changes in labor law, trends in benefit packages for our employees and the latest in IT.  Recently he helped us write our Employee Handbook."

"Marc’s knowledge of the latest HR regulations, and especially his personal, responsive nature to questions and issues has been a significant contribution to our growth.  If you are looking for help with your business, I would highly recommend his services."
