In Episode 34 I have the chance to nerd out with Angie Redmon about some of the strategies that an organization can employ to help improve their work culture, while embarking on a journey to become one of the Best Places to Work.
Angie works with companies who aspire to have an award-winning workplace distinction. You’ve heard of these, I’m sure—Best Workplaces, Top Workplaces, Best Banks, etc. She has 15 best workplaces awards under her belt, and now she guides companies through the process of pursuing their own.
Angie also provides 1:1 HR mentoring and runs an HR mastermind roundtable, using her 25+ years of experience in her field to train and prepare others to master the transformation of improving workplace culture.
In short, she’s an HR powerhouse. According to Angie, “People strategy is half art, half science”. Through her company, striveHR (https://strivehr.net/), Angie works with businesses who want to attract and retain top-notch talent. She is focused on guiding companies through the process to achieve an award-winning workplace status, while providing strategy and execution services to business leaders who want to earn this distinction.
To support organizations in their journey, Angie helps leaders navigate a 4-step process for becoming a best workplace:
- Assessment – Review prior survey results, meet with your key stakeholders and understand where you are and where you’re trying to go.
- Administration – Guides the organization through the step-by-step application and survey process, while keeping employees engaged and educated through each part of the process.
- Acknowledgment – Helps prepare the organization to review and act on key findings and create a plan to share the results with your organization.
- Action – Apply tools you need to empower your employees to be contributors and decision makers for lasting organizational change.
