Rise provides purpose-driven, results-oriented support to codify foundational values and implement them in all facets of an organization.

We are an innovative firm focused on all aspects of organizational culture. Leveraging years of experience across various industries and practices, we’ve developed a comprehensive and integrative approach to culture that is purpose-driven, values-based, results-oriented, and sustainable over the long term.

Focused on startups and small businesses, we offer one-on-one consulting, classes, and seminars to help you develop your best team from day one. Because you start building your culture on the first day, with or without a plan.  Founders, owners and managers have limited time to devote to building teams within the complex and often demanding socially conscious environment, especially during periods of growth. Let us guide you on your journey and maximize the value of your time, talents and team.

As organizations are constantly changing, so too is your culture; it's a journey, not a destination, and we're with you for the duration.

 
 

 
 
It will no longer be a choice for companies to embed social impact into their business and brand strategies - it will be required to thrive and compete for talent, customers and investors.

Why does this all matter?

And why work with The Rise Journey?

We now know that a competitive salary, impressive job title and office ping pong table aren’t enough to recruit and retain today’s best talent. Today’s job seekers and employees are looking for a healthy workplace: supportive colleagues, a discrimination-free promotion process, managers that value feedback, leaders that value diversity and make inclusion a priority.

  • Free snacks and cool perks aren’t enough to recruit, and more importantly, retain the best talent for your team.

  • Diversity training isn’t enough to ensure all employees felt included and have a sense of belonging.

  • Creating a new motto with company values isn’t enough to codify them into every People Ops process.

So how do you create a healthy organizational culture?

When the systems and procedures are in place to foster a sustainable organization culture, you rely less on individuals to make moment-to-moment decisions. Create systems that allow teams and leadership to trust the guardrails put in place to guide everyone in the right direction.

What do these processes look like?

  • Recruitment, sourcing strategies & pipeline creation

  • Interviewing, hiring process, bias awareness, scorecards, & hiring strategies

  • Leave policies, complaint handbooks, compensation and promotion parity

  • Onboarding, pulse surveys, and retention focus

  • Professional development and training

  • Engagement surveys, analysis with action, and other forms of non/anonymous feedback

  • Performance reviews, career and growth planning, and role leveling

  • Succession planning and exit interviews

  • Ongoing engagement and employee lifecycle planning

NO EGO  Keep yourself in the mindset of perspective, grounded-ness and gratitude. Be mindful of actions & relationships. Having a foosball table and paid parental leave mean little if people feel disrespected.
