"Jim and Lisa Murphy exemplify the meaning of 'taking creative care of the customer'. Their integrity, energy, spirit, and high level of professionalism make them unique in the business. I can't think of any other individuals I would trust more with an employee development program or process than the Murphys."

James P. Secord, President & CEO of Lakewood Publications

"The City of Tempe has found J.W. Murphy & Associates, Inc. to be a most helpful and beneficial partner in our movement toward continuous improvement. Their knowledge and experience not only qualifies them for their well-deserved reputation among consultants, but it also paves the way for acceptance by all levels within the organization. It is both unique and pleasing to work with individuals who are as comfortable and competent working with line-level employees as they are with CEO's and upper management. This creates a very open, accurate, and timely means of communicating within an organization, which in turn minimizes the internal resistance to change."

David W. Brown, Deputy City Manager, Tempe, AZ

"J.W. Murphy & Associates, Inc. provided significant contributions in our reengineering efforts. Our consultant established positive rapport with many employees and as a result was able to provide much needed feedback about employee views and opinions of the organization. With this feedback about our company, J.W. Murphy & Associates, Inc. was able to guide us in the development of a Vision Statement, Operating Principles and a clear focus on the right people doing the right things the right way. Stallings Oil Company found J.W. Murphy's services to be invaluable in the process of leading our organization to higher levels of performance."

Robert L. Beaman, Executive Vice President, Stallings Oil Company

"From the inaugural conference of the Positive Employee Practices Institute (PEPI) in 1989, we and our members have benefited greatly from our relationship with J.W. Murphy & Associates Inc. They have lead training sessions during every conference and provided scores of excellent show-and-tell briefings by their best client companies. Every company they have recommended for PEPI's Annual Showcase Organization Award has sailed through the tests and site visits to win. These have included General Electric, The Tempe Arizona Police Department and Intercraft Company. Their client companies have consistently expressed the highest appreciation for the key roles the Murphys play in their successful internal change processes. Our members have always found the information they receive from the Murphys and their client companies to be most relevant and helpful. No consulting organization is more knowledgeable about what is required to make changes and none can work as well with all levels of an organization to achieve goals. I highly recommend them."

Kathryn S. Collins, Former PEPI Executive Director (now retired)

They have been a significant contributor to our teaming progress."

"We have been involved with J.W. Murphy & Associates, Inc. for approximately five years. The reason for our selection of J.W. Murphy & Associates, Inc. was that the chemistry between their consulting team and our site was perfect. Their willingness to adapt to the customer's needs and build on what is already working is a very big plus in organizations that are attempting to evolve an employee involvement culture. We have found the Murphys and their consulting team to be very professional and knowledgeable in the area of leadership and employee involvement. They have evolved into part of the Merck family."
