When people bring their talents to the workplace, they bring a sense of curiosity and a will to contribute and connect, says CEO & Founder Hayes.. Most employees want to make their highest contribution! Leveraging the “Strength, Stretch & Flex” Model, developed by Zone Walk Solutions, they partner with business leaders to build a sustainable framework to transform struggling or marginal organizational cultures.
According to Krista, “What we know is that highly engaged employees will deliver results that amaze their accountable leaders and themselves. We’ve heard it said so many times, “people don’t leave jobs, they leave Managers.”
Zone Walk Solutions, partners with business leaders to transform the employee experience and optimize business processes. Krista’s passion offering at Zone Walk Solutions is the “Employee Experience Zone” (EEZ). The goal in the Employee Experience Zone is to create a culture of empowerment, where employees at all levels (leaders included) are inspired by the realization of their ability to take ownership of and have impact on their work experience. The goal is for employees to WANT to come to work!
As part of the Employee Experience Zone, the key outcomes of a relationship with Zone Walk Solutions include: greater TRUST and a sense of empowerment (foundational to any strong culture), increased productivity, and better employee retention. Leaders are equipped with a toolkit to continue this work. These are critical indications of a healthy and thriving organizational culture.
What makes Zone Walk Solutions different? As most know, workplace culture is part of the conversation now, more than ever, particularly in this post-pandemic environment. And there is still quite a bit of work to be done. In addition to how Zone Walk Solutions embraces the value of the human experience and its impact on achieving business goals, Krista also brings rich and deep operations experience, acknowledging the overlapping impact of process on the overall employee experience and the opportunity that addressing this can present.
Creating change in the workplace can be complex, but it doesn’t need to be. Zone Walk Solutions believes 3 things:
- ALL workplaces can be inclusive, enjoyable, and gratifying, no matter what type of work.
- Addressing the “process” can be as important as a focus on the people, to creating an optimal workplace culture.
- Applying the Zone Walk Solutions’ “Strength, Stretch & Flex” approach provides leaders a roadmap that offers a leg up on optimizing an employee’s workplace experience.
