Is Your Company in Sync with the Culture Revolution?
So long single-company career with a gold watch retirement. Today’s business environment is more complex, with a more diverse, multi-generational, technologically enriched workforce and client pool. People view their work as an extension of who they are and expect the workplace to contribute to personal fulfillment and enhanced opportunities.
Human judgment, creativity, intuition, experience, and empathy are essential for reformulating strategies—not machines or capital. Are employees with these precious interpersonal, technological, and decision-making skills slipping away?
What clients say about Hillary’s
Working with Hillary and her team changed our leadership’s approach to employee engagement. Not only did we see short term improvement we’ve been able to maintain the gains longer-term. Hillary helped us imbed changes in our operations that allowed for greater involvement from those working in our organization and asked the right questions to help identify strategic communication gaps. Some of the changes were simple but sometimes those small changes can be the most impactful.
In today’s business, the WOW factor is becoming more of a lost art with social media, and email. Hillary’s is a much needed partnership to instill the creative outlets needed to continue to make people feel valued and appreciated. Hillary and her team always ask detailed questions to understand our vision. Their attention to detail is spot on, and Hillary’s professionalism and energy is contagious. value our partnership with Hilary’s.
Hillary has dramatically helped our volunteer-centric organization mature in how we look at thanking and recognizing people who are important to us. What I enjoy most about Hillary and the team she works with is her approach—an approach not centered around a product, but an approach that starts with a strategy. As a result, we have done some truly unique and meaningful things that fit perfectly with our engagement and recognition goals. That’s why Hillary is one of our key go-to partners!
Hillary understands the power of relevancy and relationships. She works with you to understand your goals and specific business objectives, and then designs creative solutions that make a big impact, further a brand, and bottom line, deliver results. She’s patient, creative, and her team is incredibly responsive.
I’ve worked with Hillary’s over a several-year period to provide thoughtful awards of recognition for our employee’s contributions. In that time, we have upgraded our award recognition program with Hillary’s consultative approach. Instead of just throwing out ideas, she first asks questions to fully understand the spirit of the award recognition, listens well and then brings thoughtful options to the table. I value our working relationship.
