IBS is one of the healthiest work environments I have ever worked in. It is truly operated with the best leadership. We are progressive and never compromising when it comes to being sure our employees are not overstressed and our clients are not adversely affected by inadequate staffing.

This is, without a doubt, the best company for customer service due to the quality of all of our staff. Everyone at IBS cares about each other and we all have a common goal of taking excellent care of each and every IBS payroll client. I previously worked for a large national payroll company and they cannot compare to the customer service IBS provides.---Jodi Shubin, business development managerWhat does this acknowledgment mean to me?

As director of sales and marketing for Innovative Business Solutions (IBS), my job is to develop new payroll clients for our company. Before I was hired in 2010, IBS never had an experienced sales person. Up to that point, our clients had been acquired by customer referrals and professional relationships in the community. Our clients love our company and some of them have been with us for over 20 years.

Because of our amazing staff and the way they take such good care of our clients, I have never had to do any damage control when out talking to prospects. Our reputation gives me a competitive edge and a sense of pride. Our employees rarely leave IBS and because they are so happy, it reflects a common thread of commitment, which in turn is carried through to our customers. Being the highest scoring company in our category tells the public they are working with a winning company that is truly the “best of the best.”---Jodi ShubinMetier, Ltd.What makes your company one of the Best Places to Work in the North Bay?
