Our employee and recruitment communications wouldn’t be what they are without the content from Certified EO. They are constantly putting out new information and the look of it is fresh and appealing. We are grateful for all of the help they have given us in the past two years. Our transition to an ESOP and communicating about it would have been much more difficult without their support. It is great to work with a responsive partner like Certified EO.
