I have been a client for many years. The experience and insight at all levels is top notch. Greg, Nelson, Bernie, and Vince are always responsive. They are a professional group of individuals that pay attention and listen to our needs.

JCG is the right fit for me and I would recommend them for coaching and sound advice!

3 words that come to mind about JCG are polite, assuring, and confident.

Mike Roberts

A few years ago, Nelson and Vince visited us to present an on-site training program for our management team. Since that time, we have sent new location managers to Scottsdale to participate in the program. The two most beneficial aspects are the personality assessments and the individual coaching.

The individual coaching that each participant receives from a Johnson Consulting mentor serves as an example of how to help people set specific goals and achieve them through follow-up and holding them accountable. This is a great benefit of the training and is very helpful for the managers as they coach the teams at their locations.

Johnson Consulting provide tremendous value as funeral home consultants. Our six location firm has benefited from their insight and coaching. We recently participated in their Leadership Management program in Scottsdale. It was well organized and had fabulous insight provided by Vince, Derrick and Nelson.

I am writing to express our appreciation for the exceptional work carried out by Ryan and Nelson.

Their dedication and commitment to maintaining the financial integrity of our organization have been truly commendable. The meticulous attention to detail and the tireless efforts they invest in their work reflect their professionalism and passion for excellence.

In the ever-evolving landscape of financial management, Ryan and Nelson consistently demonstrate their ability to navigate complexities with finesse. Their contributions have significantly contributed to the success and efficiency of our accounting processes.

As we celebrate their continuing efforts with Thanos Group, it is only fitting to acknowledge the positive impact they have had on our team and the organization. Their teamwork, analytical skills, and problem-solving abilities have undoubtedly elevated the standards of our accounting practices.

I am confident that their continued efforts will play a crucial role in the continued success of Thanos Group. We are congratulating Ryan and Nelson on their outstanding achievements and thanking them for their unwavering commitment to excellence.

Thank you for your attention, and I look forward to witnessing the continued success.

Had to give Vince and Johnson Consulting a shoutout thank you again for the invaluable experience in Scottsdale with Dave Shank last March and May. Had to give credit where it’s due and hope to send some of my staff to see you in the future.

Hope all is well with you, sir. Thanks again for a meaningful experience last year!

Before the Incentive Compensation Plan (ICP), our company’s bonus payouts lacked consistency and transparency. I primarily decided on them based on what I considered a good quarter or year. However, with the ICP in place, it has eliminated any confusion among employees regarding the timing and eligibility for bonuses. Additionally, it has positively impacted our survey response rate, as the funeral directors now understand that a specific response threshold must be met for bonuses to be awarded.

The ICP is a vital tool that ensures bonuses align with company performance goals while remaining fair and attainable for employees. Once we’ve set the annual budget, my involvement is minimal until we receive the quarterly reports. These reports are invaluable for our quarterly reviews and decision making.

I highly recommend Johnson Consulting’s Incentive Compensation Plan. It has revolutionized our bonus approach, making it more meaningful and aligned with our company’s success. The customization, ease of management, and insightful reports make it an excellent choice for improving compensation structures.

We have been with JCG for about four years. As we have expanded and grown we hired our own CFO and separated from JCG. After four months we realized we had made a mistake. I called JCG and explained what had happened and asked if they could help us out. Of course they did and with in four weeks they had everything caught back up for us. They have been terrific. Nelson and Niccole have been the biggest help to us, but I know there is a whole team working behind the scenes to keep us going.

Vince and Nelson did an outstanding job of facilitating the steering committee meeting. They treated our business as if it were their own. Their thoughtful input, suggestions, and comments were always very insightful and helpful. Please relay to them my heartfelt gratitude for their passion and dedication of making our operations and business the best. We look forward to implementing what we went over and becoming a better funeral service organization.

What a powerful and meaningful Customer Service Revolution retreat you facilitated for our team. We are already implementing our learnings to create powerful and meaningful experiences for our members.

We turned to JCG for their expertise and guidance to help us transition the business which was the heart and soul of who we are…and left with so much more. We consider Karen a dear friend and are blessed to have had her leadership as we moved from ownership to retirement. We often remark that without Johnson’s support, we would still be mired in the process of finding the right successor owner for our business. Trusting JCG to navigate the way was, hands down, the best decision for our family.

Once we made up our mind to sell, Johnson’s were quick to market it and bring some favorable offers to the table. We appreciated Jake & Brian’s expertise in the transition and completion of the sale.

To the Johnson’s and staff at Johnson Consulting, thank you so much. Throughout the process beginning with evaluation to closing you were there for me. Your industry expertise, connections with qualified buyers and your negotiating skills all proved invaluable in attaining a satisfying outcome both for me and the buyer. I would highly recommend your services and wish you all the best of luck into the future.
