“How did you come up with your company name?”
I’ve been asked this question several times, and I love it when I’m asked! Why? I get to tell the story of why striving for continuous improvement is a way of life for me.
Many years ago when I started my career working with manufacturing organizations, I learned about a term called, “Kaizen” which means “continuous improvement”. After observing how actions were evaluated, changes made to make the outcome better, learning, improving (do you get the idea now?)
This stuck with me and significantly impacted my thought process.
I’ve had wonderful opportunities to work with different industries. I’ve watched, learned, and made improvements (see this pattern?).
As an HR professional, I focused on this philosophy of continuous improvement:
- How can we improve our onboarding process?
- What can we do to give our employees a better understanding of their impact on the organization?
- What can we learn from employees during stay interviews to help with our recruitment strategies?
When these actions were put into place, results occurred. Employees felt heard, understood, and appreciated. I saw how focusing on continuous improvement impacted employee engagement.
When I launched my business I was laser-focused on wanting to help organizations make improvements in their workplace, make their culture better, help employees be more engaged, and to strive for continuous improvement in their workforce. And there I had it….striveHR was born!
At striveHR, I help organizations with their workplace culture and employee engagement, so that they can focus on running their business, streamlining their processes, and continuously improving. When that happens, organizations are set for success on their journey to becoming an award-winning workplaces.
I encourage you to never settle for how things are now. How can you make things 1% better? How can you continuously improve? I promise you that when you make this a daily practice in your organization that your employees will notice. That, my friend, helps you create a workplace culture.
