“In November of 2008, Corrugated Services Inc. and Orange County Container merged to form Orange County Container Group LLC.

As with any merger, the task list for the HR Department after the merger was monumental. The list included creating new company policies, integrating and designing new benefit plans, creating a new HRIS and payroll system, negotiating new collective bargaining agreements and much more. As the HR Director, this was one of the most challenging opportunities in my HR career and The Rea Company was there with me every step of the way. From helping OCCG LLC create new company polices and developing new Affirmative Action Plans to assisting us in contract negotiations and labor relations, the Rea Company has become an extension of our newly created Human Resources Department and they continue to be a crucial ingredient to our success. With each new challenge, they are quick to provide support while offering excellent customer service and creative solutions.

I consider the amazing professionals at The Rea Company one of my strongest resources and the HR Department at OCCG LLC thinks of their staff as part of our family.”

“The Rea Company has been our Contracted Human Resources function since 2002. They have performed admirably, guiding our organization in Policy and Procedure preparation, Benefit Administration, Safety, Recruiting, difficult correctives and terminations. We are most pleased in the performance and cost savings provided by the professionals of The Rea Company.

Their presence has brought a peace of mind. Since their arrival, I have been able to sleep at night.”
