“Sandee Rugg hit it out of the park when she conducted, CA Harassment Training for Supervisors for our company in Fall of 2015.

Sandee took a class that we’ve all completed multiple times and refreshed it without compromising the integrity of the CA requirement. She does a terrific job engaging her audience and keeping it interesting. She managed to add humor appropriately to the course which was a fun twist and made the class time fly by.

I truly appreciated her flexibility with our company schedule. Sandee was professional, courteous, accommodating, interesting and funny. I would highly recommend her to other companies. Our company will surely use her services again.”

Sandee Rugg has been our HR consultant since 2008. She has helped form our internal HR
practices and policies with her helpful insight. When I started overseeing HR, I had no idea what
I was doing. Sandee was a great sounding board for not only me, but also for our management
team. She helped us establish our core HR principals and from there helped us create our
performance reviews. She has helped our company understand how important it is to deal with
issues as they come up and to not wait, or never talk about them. She is also very nonjudgemental
in her approach. She always listens with an open mind. She never has made me
feel silly or dumb with my many questions.

She has an ability to relate to all employees as well as management staff. She has a way of
making people feel comfortable. And she will always ask questions in order to get to the core of
an issue rather than speak off the cuff. She’s very mindful of her audience and always treats
everyone respectfully. Her advice is practical and she always tries to make it fit within our
corporate culture.

I have had the honor of working with Ms. Rugg professionally for the past five years. RORE,
Inc. engaged Ms. Rugg as its go-to Human Resources (HR) consultant for all of its locations
nationwide, including California, Arizona, Washington and Hawaii. It is rare to find a
combination of energy, passion, competence and dedication in one individual. Ms. Rugg gives
100 percent to any issue she is tasked with, be it providing one-on-one HR advice or speaking to
the entire organization on corporate policies. It is often a wonder how she excels at so many
levels while garnering and/or maintaining the utmost respect of all individuals she engages with!

RORE has and continues to rely on Ms. Rugg for her HR expertise. Ms. Rugg takes her work
seriously, and is very responsive to immediate requests for information from me or any
employee within our organization. Her advice has been sound, thoughtful, and knowledgeable.
She has always provided options from which executive management can base their HR
decisions—decisions that are fair for both the employer and the employees.

I am writing on behalf of Sandee Rugg. I met Sandee when I started my career at Dickinson Cameron Construction over 8 years ago. Sandee has been a huge resource to us and has helped us change the corporate culture trending towards a more positive and effectively run company. Sandee has helped with employee and management training, sexual harassment training, updating our employee handbook, helping with interviewing prospective staff members, updating our onboarding and termination package, employee surveys, team building and executive coaching. Sandee has helped our manager’s understand the importance of HR and proper management skills. Sandee has been my counsel for the last 8 years. I commend her for always making herself available to DCC. She has a way that makes you feel like you are the most important client even when she is incredibly busy.

I highly recommend Sandee Rugg. Her reputation, knowledge, determination and extremely kind heart will make a deep impact on any organization she chooses to help.
