    Here’s What Our Clients Are Saying…

    “We found that the employees are much more honest with a non-threatening third party that provided a lot of good feedback to develop a better dialogue, to develop a better program…”

    “We brought in a third-party consultant (Awareness is Key) to get more of an unbiased look at us, to give us good feedback. We found that the employees are much more honest with a non-threatening third party that provided a lot of good feedback to develop a better dialogue, to develop a better program. Quite frankly, quit kidding ourselves sometimes. Because sometimes our employees are going to tell us what we want to hear just because that’s a natural instinct to feel threatened by the employer at times. We’ve developed craft committees to where more craft people are sitting together so that can permeate back out into the field directly, versus a top-down movement. That’s starting to provide some pretty good traction. So, trying to instill personal accountability more than anything and bring us back down to the boots on the ground.”
