work/REFINED is changing the way people work. We help companies transform to create growth and value for employees, customers and investors. We are experts in all things People and Culture - from diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), to people systems (HR) and corporate responsibility goals in the areas of the environment, social impact and governance (ESG). We help executive leaders engage their workforce and we assist boards in designing corporate missions.
Simply stated – we believe people come first.
As former Xerox CEO Anne Mulcahy said, “Employees are a company's greatest asset - they're your competitive advantage. You want to attract and retain the best; provide them with encouragement, stimulus, and make them feel that they are an integral part of the company's mission.”
work/REFINED is dedicated to helping companies develop, respect, retain and invest in a vibrant, high-performing, diverse workforce.
The team at work/REFINED is not made up of traditional consultants. We are proven operators with a track record of success. We cut through the jargon and deliver real strategies and measurable results. Our team has spent decades advising and leading large, complex organizations, start ups, midsize businesses and federal government agencies.
The workforce has dramatically changed over the recent past and employees want more from their employers than just a paycheck. Many consumers and investors expect businesses to foster engagement, exhibit sound corporate responsibility and demonstrate positive community impact. These are not easy goals to deliver and many companies do not know where to begin. Our team at work/REFINED takes the guess work out of where to start or when to pivot on an existing strategy. We move companies, people and work forward. Strategy, training, development, policymaking, assessments – we know the landscape and we hit the ground running.
