“I met Rene Carter through TriNet which is a PEO firm. After signing up with TriNet they work with so many 3rd party vendors that can help your business in different places. Now getting back to Rene with ReFOCUSed. I have to say the customer service has been outstanding. At first I thought, ‘this sounds too good to be true’. Fast forward, I gave them a shot after many questions were asked and answered. I got my first check 3 weeks ago, waiting on the rest of the checks to come in. Thank you Rene. You’re the best!”

Her deep care for her internal/external partners and clients alike is unparalleled. She is passionate about helping businesses with their employee related challenges and being a part of assisting them achieve their business goals. I highly recommend Rene Carter, she always gets it done!
