Culture Development

Education/awareness building and training programs customized around each Client’s Focus and Context (Vision, Values, and Purpose).

Health and Safety Programs

The CLEMMER Group has designed specialized and extensive health and safety programs with executive retreats, management workshops, and front line sessions. Participant workbooks and leader’s guides are customized around each Client’s core messages, approaches, and Health and Safety frameworks.

Navigating Change for Frontline Staff

Ninety-minute keynotes or half to one-day workshops that reinforce key messages around change, personal leadership, and growth. These highly customized sessions link to the organization’s Improvement Plan and/or gather input to the plan and/or its implementation.

Engaging Key Stakeholders

Customized workshop(s) with managers, supervisors, and/or frontline staff. This step engages key players in the change and implementation process. Participants align their personal growth goals and performance objectives with those established by the management team. The sessions can also be used to gather input and support for the emerging Improvement Plan.

Improvement Plan Development

Consulting or facilitation services to pull together output from management team retreats as well as any input that may be gathered from assessments or workshops. Individual consulting or group facilitation can be provided to internal coordinators, steering teams, Strategic Imperative Teams, and/or special project teams. Often the process involves a follow-up session with the management team to make final decisions based on input and a draft Improvement Plan.

Strategic Process Management

All organizational work is part of one or more processes. At their very broadest, macro processes can span an entire organization and cut across all major functions or departments. Examples of macro processes include the design and development of new products/services; producing products or delivering services; product order or service request fulfillment; invoicing/accounting, and collecting money; inventory management and logistics; information management; admitting, discharging, and transferring patients; or generating leads and making sales.
