We pioneer 21st century flexible and respectful workplaces. They are magnets for recruitment and retention. Built on a foundation of mutual gain, mutual respect and inclusive standards and behaviors, they embed collaboration over command and control. Today broad abuses of power – sexual harassment, bias, bullying and age discrimination among them – challenge organizations. In 2019 we must move beyond modest programs such as bias awareness, anti-sexual harassment training and timid flexibility. It is time to transform our standards and behaviors to unleash the power of our diverse and talented workforces. We partner for lasting change.
How We Innovate
According to the 2016 SHRM Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement Survey:
Your phased retirement expertise helped more than you might realize. Our enrollment is very high and we continue to get great feedback. Your support was critical.
We continue to be pleased with the thoroughness and attention to detail you delivered on all of our “Freedom to Work” program design and materials. We haven’t run into any big issues we hadn’t anticipated.
I have attended a lot of training here focusing on bias awareness, communication, etc. The Mutual Respect process goes far beyond those with a focus on confronting and overriding bad habits.
Rupert & Company has been co-creator and co-champion of our innovative Managing through Cancer initiative. Working with our diverse membership and user base, they consistently overcame challenges in ways that served everyone. We all won.
Rupert’s web-based tools are a wonderful platform for making decisions and training users. Their business-based view of flexibility’s role in engaging talent and enhancing productivity enabled our senior leadership to buy in to our Flexibility Initiative.
Rupert & Company has worked with Sodexo for several years, helping us design and implement highly strategic and effective formal Flexible Work Arrangements as well as a consistent approach to informal flexibility.
The Mutual Respect process has opened up the dialogue between very diverse management & staff, greatly increasing our ability to work together across our many differences. Patient flow, staff satisfaction and patient and family feedback are greatly improved.
