"Lisa and the entire team at RRU set the standard I hold other recruiters to. They execute even the most difficult projects with an eye for detail and genuine enthusiasm for what they do. We completed a recent Ethnography project with them with an extremely low incidence and difficult to engage audience and they delivered a flawless recruit, from start to finish. Lisa was able to accommodate several last minute requests from our clients and secure critical replacements for cancellations without missing a beat - their quick responses made all the difference in our ability to meet our research goals.. My only complaint is that I can't use them in every market!"

"I have been working with Lisa and the team at RRU Research for just about two years on a pretty continual basis. The work they have done for my team is always superb and takes a lot of the stress out of project planning as I know that the recruits that they provide will always be perfect for the project at hand. The team at Recruiting Resources is friendly, attentive and extremely flexible; often altering recruits for me at the last second and still managing to get the job done.”

–Mira W., Haystack International
"I just wanted to say thank you for your team’s help in running our study last week. We had a great experience, and I was really impressed with the quality of the spaces, and the phenomenal attention by your all of your staff. Shelly and Mindy were extremely courteous and attentive to everything we needed. They anticipated our needs and were always available for anything that came up. I wanted to let you know, because we don’t often find such a good combination of staff assistance and high-quality testing rooms. I am happy that Rob & Nancy recommended you to me, and I will certainly recommend your facility to my colleagues.”
–Katie S., Nielson Norman Group
"I just received a note from the client and she was absolutely thrilled with everything. She said the staff last night were terrific and the recruits excellent. She was very impressed that not only did you pull off the recruit so quickly, but that everything went off without a hitch. I certainly echo that sentiment, everything was perfect!"
–Bj K., Just Worldwide, Ltd.
"Just wanted to let you know that everything went extremely well on Tuesday. The recruit was excellent and everyone in the Prospect group felt spot-on (plus, we were really impressed that you guys completed the recruit so quickly and managed to get such a good mix of ages!). Everything onsite was great (the setup and presentation were exactly what we’d hoped for), and Mindy, Shelly, and Asia were fantastic as always. The client team seemed very happy with everything. I’m just sorry I wasn’t able to pop by your office and say “hi” (you know how things can get in the backroom)! Thank you so much for your fantastic work, and looking forward to the next project with you guys!! Enjoy the weekend!"
–Tanya S., Media & Entertainment Strategies, Inc.
”I wanted to thank you for the PHENOMENAL experience that we had at Fusion Focus in New York last week. As you may remember, my team and I were at your facility all day, from 11am to 9:30pm. Despite the long period of time that we stayed with you, there was never a dull moment. You consistently delivered us exceptional service from start to finish. A few things stand out — your warmth, the delicious food, the promptness with which you fulfilled every request, and the quality of all of the rooms in your facility. Beyond this, you went above and beyond by opening up different rooms for us to use throughout the day and getting additional incentives for our last minute recruits. I felt valued and appreciated by you and your team, and look forward to doing business with you again in the future. We are now conducting focus groups in Dallas and LA, with another vendor (pre-scheduled by our project manager), and all of the members of our team agree that nothing compares to you and Fusion Focus. Thanks again.”
