Employee Retention is a Companies Number One Challenge
Revenue Growth, Continuous Process Improvements, Innovation, Culture – RESULTS – are all significantly impacted by a Companies ability to Retain and Attract Top Talent. Todays Talent have more options, are less concerned with changing jobs more often, care deeply about working with people they like, supervisor they respect, companies they believe in and offer an environment of personal and professional growth.
The NotionPath Difference
No two Companies are the same…often on different paths of development. We spend time to understand our Clients, identify areas to get transformative growth then bring the experts with proven results to solve your challenges. Transformative change can take 12 to 18 months to obtain. However, we believe our approaches can yield measurable returns within the first month o two giving owners and CEOs confidence their ROI is on tract.
Building a leadership team can make the difference to meet these challenges. Most owners, CEOs, or founders struggle to find the time to devote to this process…often delegating it to a junior level employee in HR or outside recruiter – that hardly knows your business let alone the qualities of a Leader.
It is a skill. Part art, part science. The art comes in 30 years of interviewing 1,000+ people for many different types of roles. Honing listen skills and questioning skills. Done right it’s very enjoyable and the experience, regardless of the outcome, should be a respectable process. Our 10 Point Leadership Assessment to provided a comprehensive overview matched to the characteristics of the role We use industry leading Assessment Tools to provide the science.At NotionPath we are constantly building Top Leadership Community and get to know those leaders.. We work collaboratively with our Employer Clients to know what your needs are and using a process we call “Reverse Recruiting” we match the talent with the needs of employers.
If your recruiting challenges extend beyond leadership roles we have solutions that keep this process inhouse, you own the candidate relationships, build your employer brand, and offer sort term or long term solutions.
Think of Employee Engagement as your fuel, your catalyst to make stuff happen. Far more than just creating a “fun” place to work. If that’s where your efforts end chances are you aren’t actively engaging all of your employees. We feel there are two parts to this challenge:
#1 Connecting with your employees at an emotional level. Understanding your employees Why. What get’s them excited. How can you tap into that better.
#2 Engagement tools – from marketing content, to employee activities, to interactive tools that allow you to build on that relationship and create raging advocates for your brand. Leverage the most engaging tool that they are already using – their smart phones.
A uniqueness that NotionPath can help is that merger of marketing with human resources. Understanding the differences of your employee community yet leverage the information and digital assets that your marketing team already shares to tap into what should be your biggest advocate your employees and those that wish to join you.
In most cases attracting a talented team comes before finding customers. Yet we invest far more in Marketing to customers. The challenge is that while the Marketing team can help HR to create some focus on “selling” to candidate it requires a different mindset, different tools, different voice all of which HR needs to own. NotionPath can bridge that gap with solutions that allow you to build a candidate community and greatly speed up the process to fill openings and scale.
To effectually integrate sales into your entire team, create a culture of continuous process improvement and innovation, or create a culture of collaboration to break silos – you need Engaged Employees. Study show only 33% of Employees are engaged. That’s a failure. We can bring real solutions that tap into areas of emotion to lead to exceptional performance. And fun.
Strategic Planning and Execution Management
2% Plan, 98% Do. Every organization should Plan but focus on getting stuff done. Using our “People” approach we facilitate an approach to help you and your team get clear on your value proposition, differentiators, operational – strategic – financial objectives, then roll that into a continuous execution process that engages your leadership team first – then your whole company.

Financial Management for Results

Analyzing and communicating this financial knowledge into actionable measures, results, KPI’s, and alignment of your team. Combining the financial skills of a CFO with the Business Development skills of a CEO to empower action and ensure results.
The single business challenge for most organizations is business development – sales and marketing. The last 10 years have completely changes the way business do business, reach new clients, find leads, and secure long term relationships.

The second big challenge for an organization once they have success with business development is to scale their business.
