“Stefanie’s approach to take inventory of our past challenges with staff development resulted in a genuinely customized approach, and it made for all the difference! 100% of staff asked for her to join us for a second session. As a result, our team’s sense of purpose and connection are truly exceptional.”

If you need a vetted, humorous, and extremely knowledgeable HR professional to help your organization, I wouldn’t hesitate to call Stefanie at WNY People Development!”
