"The words were simple - create a learning culture where employees feel valued, trusted and respected, and every employee contributes to their full potential. Simple to say, hard to do. Patti DeRosa and Changeworks are up to this task. From strategic planning, cultural survey and base line work to training and ongoing support during implementation phases, ChangeWorks continues to share a broad range of knowledge transfer to make us more capable of achieving our goals. ChangeWorks has influenced and improved the way we do business From the shop floor to the board room. Our results include increased profitability, best in class new hire retention rates, we look like the communities we do business in and we have award winning marketing programs throughout our industry. In my opinion, there is no resource better able to integrate Inclusion and Diversity as a business value than Patti DeRosa and ChangeWorks."
