First, Josianne’s work experience has made her wise beyond her years. The rare trait of listening deeply long before she talks, moves us to the heart of opportunities much faster than we would have otherwise. Josi’s refreshing approach to performance, while different for each client, strongly leverages culture and team alignment to achieve agreed upon goals. The process makes work much more enjoyable, as people always thrive from doing a good job!

I loved working with Josianne at SmartFox Consulting as she enabled our company to be more competitive and better promote employee engagement.

We are a small, high growth company where every dollar spent is precious and needs to deliver results. We have worked with Josianne to review employment and consulting agreements, review our employment policies and expectations and to ask general HR questions. Josianne always delivers above and beyond our expectations. She delivers results that we value and utilize to grow Pranin Organic and Josianne always communicates in a clear and professional manner. We look forward to continuing to utilize her expertise in the future!

Every local business should be working with Smart Fox! I recently went through an HR course with Josianne and I have seen an immediate impact with my business. I see her work as especially valuable for all the companies that don't have a dedicated HR team as she creates structure and clear vision to such important aspects of your business that often get pushed aside. I will definitely be looking to work with Josianne further.

In the spring of 2017, Josianne delivered a fresh, inspiring, engaging and thought provoking presentation on Recruitment and Retention to the business community of Whistler. We are so fortunate to have such talent right here in our own backyard. We are looking forward to welcoming Josianne back in the Fall 2017!

Josianne is a woman who believes in people and helps them see their full potential. She was and still is my mentor today. If it wasn't for Josianne I would not have been able to accomplish what I have without her continuous support and guidance. Josianne is always educating herself and staying current with HR and business trends. She truly has a passion for people and culture and is an overall well rounded human being. Anyone who meets Josianne will know what I am talking about as her passion and energy is contagious. She opened my eyes to many opportunities and inspired me to create vision boards as part of my professional and personal development. She helped me believe in myself in ways I never thought possible. There isn't much Josianne Fox doesn’t do, she looks at obstacles as opportunities and always tackles every situation with a smile and professional demeanour.

I had the pleasure working with Josianne when I was looking to transition positions. Josianne was able to provide me with understanding and knowledge to get me focused in the right direction to achieve my goals. I am so grateful that I had this opportunity; you could not find a more genuine and knowledgeable professional to work with.

Josianne is very natural, engaging and easy to bounce ideas off with. I've had the privilege of working with her and find her very knowledgeable. Up to today, I still reach out to her to discuss HR issues I come across. She is not only a great HR professional but also a great mentor.

Josianne is a blast of positive energy, and she knows her stuff. Also, she's instantly likeable, which is especially important when dealing with sensitive issues.
