In 1986, Joni Thomas Doolin founded American Service Management Resources (ASMR), a recruiting and consulting firm specializing in innovative approaches to human resource management. Renamed People Report™ in 1998, the company has earned a reputation in the restaurant industry as a firm with the highest standards of integrity and professionalism. Committed to helping clients "maintain the balance between people and profits" Joni has continually repositioned the company to meet the changing needs of the hospitality industry.

In 1995, under Ms. Doolin's leadership, the firm entered into an exciting collaboration with human resources and operating executives of six leading chain restaurant companies, to publish People Report™, a quarterly survey designed to competitively report key human resource statistics and trends. Acknowledged early on as an innovative and cutting edge resource, People Report™ was selected in 1996 by CHART (The Council for Hotel & Restaurant Trainers) as a strategic information partner for its members. Joni and crew are among the most active supporters of the restaurant industry, giving back is just in their DNA!

Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.
