Proactive Talent Culture:
Our culture is built around the foundational belief that our company is a community (aka the “Proactive Talent Tribe”) and that no one individual is greater than the whole. We are fierce advocates for our clients but even more so our integrity and quality of our work.
A Great Client for us:
A great client for us is one that sees us as a valuable extension of their team, is responsive and engaged in our projects, and truly believes that investing in their people and telling their authentic employee experience story is one of the most effective ways to be a profitable and successful company. These clients believe this and have buy-in from the top down.
A Not Great Client for us:
Companies that in reality don’t invest in their people and culture. We do not put lipstick on pigs. We help great companies with great cultures who care about their employees share their story with the world. Also, companies that treat us as task masters and order takers rather than true strategic partners or clients who treat our employees unprofessionally can be subject to having their projects canceled.
Proactive Talent Success is measured by:
Simply, we are measured by results. We use a data-driven approach and success metrics are established at the beginning of engagements and are measured throughout and even after the engagement is over.
