Rick brought a lot of energy and ideas to our company. He was always looking for ways to improve our services to our members along with keeping the costs under control.
I worked with Rick at Pinkerton. He was an excellent HR manager who was well respected by everyone.
It was my pleasure to have partnered with Rick during my tenure working with Employer's Group. Rick managed one of 5 regions, and he was tasked with taking an "old" culture and organizational thinking, and bring it into today's mindset.
His ability to create a team, provide strategic guidance and thinking, and produce results were evident in what he and his team were able to produce.
I would be pleased to partner with Rick and work together again.
Rick is an outstanding HR professional, and without a doubt one of the best trainers and communicators to employees. At Pinkerton he managed a newly formed national group of acquired companies (roll-up) and hand to deftly integrate disparate cultures into a new organization. I would recommend him highly for any challenging positions requiring human relation skills plus organizational excellence.
Rick is noted for his unique blend of business savvy, compassion for others, and deep competence in aligning human resources strategy to the business strategy. I have always been impressed by his ability to quickly diagnose a difficult issue and prescribe the exact approach that will lead to a long-term resolution. On top of these traits, he is also a natural entrepreneur, with a "never-give up" passion for exceeding customer expectations, all delivered with a winning smile. He is a brilliant, enthusiastic and high-energy/high-integrity person who has a remarkable ease with all kinds of people.
Rick Gilbert was, and still is, extremely innovative in the design and delivery of training programs. He uses effective consulting skills to assess his clients' needs, and develops solutions to help them achieve their desired outcomes. He is a strong team player and is very resourceful. He is a man of strong integrity and will deliver what he says he's going to do!
Rick is one of the best trainers I’ve met. I still use some of his teaching techniques in my current training practice. If you need help in Personnel (Human Side) Development, Coaching and/or Counseling, Rick is your guy.
Rick is a highly professional, sales oriented, leader. He is respected by subordinates and peers alike. He manages others well and is a great team player.
