Thank you! -- Google Review
  • I’ve learned skills to create time for myself, for thoughtful work and prepping for upcoming conversations and presentations. I’ve also been able to approach hard conversations head on with suggestions and recommendations from Kim. I’m beginning to find my voice and feel that I’ve earned my position vs. being in the right place at the right time. -- Coaching Client
  • I learned how to communicate better, address conflict and adjust communication styles based on who I am speaking to. Kim really helped me to think about my responses to others before speaking, and helped me consider different methods of communication. -- Coaching Client
  • "Your team is great to work with, and we appreciate the opportunity for you to help make us stronger." -- Jeff Mohler, Special Olympics Indiana
  • “We were fortunate enough to have Purple Ink conduct Performance Conversations and Delegation training in a combined session for our entire firm. This took three sessions, one fully virtual. The amount of thoughtful planning that went into offering an industry and firm appropriate training was impressive. The remote employee experience was as robust as the highly interactive in person sessions. I had a 22 year manager tell me during the break of the first session that this was one of the best trainings she had ever experienced and then showed me 2.5 pages of notes she had taken. Our leadership is thrilled that people were already implementing concepts from the training the SAME DAY! Many of our leaders felt a great deal of relief that we invested in the whole firm and have now common language and shared activities that we can use to communicate as we delegate and offer information to one another. The ROI on anything Purple Ink does is instant and incredible! Cannot wait to work with you again!” -- Google Review
  • “Our organization used Purple Ink as we embarked on a search for a new CFO. Purple Ink was instrumental in helping us land our number one candidate. Their prompt attention to screening candidates in a competitive environment was so appreciated, and their assessment of our candidates was spot on.” -- Google Review
  • “Purple Ink completed several salary benchmark surveys for us. Their work was cost-effective, timely, informative, and very well done. Highly recommended.” -- Google Review
  • “Purple Ink is the best. If you want the best advice, work with Purple Ink! If you want to be the best organization possible for your staff, work with Purple Ink! They are experts who give simple, timely, and impactful support.” -- Google Review
  • “Purple Ink has done an incredible job helping with our HR needs! They are professional and meticulous in all their efforts. We could not be happier with their work on our behalf!” -- Google Review
  • "We used Purple Ink to assist with searches for several positions. From beginning to end they were an incredible resource for us. They helped craft and walk through position descriptions, assisted with salary targets, and timelines. Their approach to reviewing and interviewing candidates before passing them along to us was very helpful and we were able to work with them on the outline of questions and the types of candidates we were looking for. They also assisted with communication for those we chose not to interview, offered to assist with scheduling (although we chose to manage that part internally) and they remained in constant communication throughout the process - seeking feedback and input. We are thrilled with the candidates we hired and would definitely utilize Purple Ink in the future for key hires." -- Jamie Elkins, Brebeuf Jesuit Preparatory School
  • I wasn’t sure what to expect when our boss signed us up for the class, but I really ended up enjoying it! The class was well organized and broken down into smaller chunks that were easily digestible. I loved doing the DiSC profile to understand myself better, but also to understand my co-workers better. It’s amazing how closely our team fit into the different categories. We still refer back to the different styles in conversations and I truly believe that it has helped us to recognize characteristics that may have been larger frustrations before. Now, with understanding each person’s style, we are able to approach our teammates in a different way so that frustrations and/or hurt feelings are kept to a minimum. I also thought that the check-ins with employees was a valuable take away, as well as the session on how to deliver constructive feedback in a way. -- Management 101 Series Participant
  • The series was a wonderful tool in order to help grow my management skills. The trainer was knowledgeable and kept the training classes entertaining. The way the course was structured with an easy flow to demonstrate how to create trust and understanding with your team gave more insight on how to handle any challenges that might be faced in the future.  The examples given from other companies in the training were beneficial in the fact that these instances happen at every work place which didn’t make them seem so singled out. There were also several ideas presented by other groups that we have implemented in our office which are working well. Thank you Purple Ink for the new skills! -- Management 101 Series Participant
  • I enjoyed the personal assessment and workplace profile that allowed me to become more aware of my styles/preferences and how best to identify profiles of others and better communicate with them. I learned some techniques to conduct better interviews and employee reviews. My favorite takeaways were getting to know the styles and preferences of my teammates to improve our communication. -- Management 101 Series Participant
  • The thing I most enjoyed about the class was seeing and learning that other managers struggle with the same obstacles as me but that there are so many techniques available to overcome those. Being able to take all the lessons from so many new people and apply those to my everyday tasks was a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed being able to share new ideas and meet new faces. -- Management 101 Series Participant
  • "You did an excellent job of putting me at ease and made the interview experience enjoyable. Interviews can be mentally draining but I left our call feeling excited about next steps! That is in a big part, due to you!" -- Nonprofit Candidate
  • "Just wanted to say one more big thank you for all you did to make this possible. Your work matters so much and I’m so grateful for all you did to get us here." -- Merillat Flowers, Techpoint

  • "I appreciated the detailed response and the candid recommendations contained in the assessment.  [Purple Ink] made a lasting positive impression and I look forward to partnering in ways large and small as we move forward.  This assessment provides many opportunities for us to improve and expand and [we] are shaping a long-term trajectory for our HR department to best serve and support our workforce and this agency." – Brian Copes, HVAF of Indiana, Inc.
  • “In my role as HR Director, I have trusted Purple Ink with various projects to support our organization’s needs. One of their team members filled in a critical role that was vacant in my department. Peggy jumped right in, learned our business and helped us meet our hiring goals. Her colleague Stacy assisted us with this goal as well. Both brought their “A” game to us and were exactly who we needed!” – Google Review
  • “Purple Ink…stayed with us for three months while we were in [the process] of finding a new person. It took a huge weight off of me. It was just me and the HR Manager at the time, and it was a little intimidating as to how I was going to be able to keep up with everything and make sure that nothing was being dropped. Having Purple Ink working alongside me and picking up right where someone else left off and adapting to our culture was just great.” – Monique Charlebois, Morales Group Staffing
  • “We hired Purple Ink to come in and do some internal team building. They used the CliftonStrengths® tool, and to say it was a success would be absolutely true. I’ll just say that five years later, all the members that went through that training still refer to the things they learned about themselves and about each other.” – Mark Sherman, LHD Benefits
  • “Looking to make a career change, I needed help rewriting my resume. I hit the jackpot when I found [Purple Ink]! [Peggy] is an editor extraordinaire. Her professionalism is beyond reproach. She responded to my emails in a timely manner and always made me feel as if she was eager to help me. Would use her again in a heartbeat. Couldn't have landed my new job without her.” – Google Review
  • “Purple Ink recently worked with my son, a college sophomore. The [Strong Interest Inventory®] and personal critique afterwards helped so much in making the difficult decision of choosing a major. A weight has been lifted from us both. I would highly recommend Purple Ink!” – Google Review
  • “I am so grateful to Peggy from Purple Ink for all her help during my job search. She went above and beyond to make sure I had the right resources and knowledge. Her support and advice have been invaluable to me. She is an incredible coach who truly cares about the people she helps.” – Suzanne
  • “I just started [a new job] as a Data Services Analyst yesterday and wanted to let you know your interview prep materials were really, really helpful. I really think working with you is what made this happen.” - Dan
  • “Purple Ink helped conduct much needed manager training on performance management in preparation for [our] first annual employee evaluations. They also assisted with a very large job description project, and with their help we were able to create and finalize over 65 job descriptions. Our employees responded so positively to these initiatives, and thanks to the help of Purple Ink, we were voted to the top workplaces list by the Indianapolis Star for the first time.” – Sue Miller, Bill Estes Ford
  • “At Sun King culture is everything, and we were really struggling with how to find the right fit when hiring for our open HR position... [it was] recommended that we connect with Purple Ink and we couldn't be happier that we did! From our first meeting we knew we were in good hands. The team at Purple Ink helped us craft a job posting that would draw interest from people looking for a strong and unique culture, and their assistance working through the applicants in order to find the right ones to interview was paramount. They helped set up interviews and follow up with everyone to keep the search on track, and we found the perfect fit for our needs!” - Clay Robinson, Sun King Brewing
  • “Purple Ink [was] very helpful in editing our outdated employee handbook and giving us suggestions on what to include and what to remove.
