"Betsy Oulton has been a godsend to us here at Ogunquit Sewer District since we hired her as our HR Consultant in July 2017, to work for us on an “as needed” basis.  Her prior experience as a Workers’ Comp insurance adjuster, along with her work with municipalities similar to ours, made her a perfect fit for us.  Betsy is a joy to work with, and complete with her knowledge & expertise of HR & Workers’ Compensation law, has become a very valuable and important part of our team.  Betsy came highly recommended to us, and we in turn highly recommend her to other businesses like ourselves who do not need a full time HR Director, but have occasional HR projects or needs." Phil and Debbie Pickering


"“I have been very impressed with the level of knowledge, expertise and responsive service that Betsy has provided the Town of Kennebunk.  She carefully listens to our needs and responds in a timely manner, insuring a quality end product.”  Michael Pardue, Kennebunk Town Manager

"Betsy Oulton, SHRM-CP (HR Maine Consulting) has been a valuable resource to Wells Sanitary District (WSD), helping us improve human resource issues.  She has successfully updated WSD’s personnel policy, evaluated safety programs, and conducted a baseline study to improve morale.   She has provided annual dignity, respect, and sexual harassment training. As a new manager, I needed help with coaching employees and evaluating performance.  She updated all the job descriptions and helped us set up WSD’s performance evaluation policy.  She also streamlined the hiring process using 21st century tools.  I cannot thank her enough for her ongoing help to WSD.  She has contributed to our success."  Nick Rico, P.E. - Superintendent - Wells Sanitary District
