Rebuilding a Toxic Work Environment
The CEO of a professional services firm was concerned that revenues had plateaued and that the firm was experiencing high employee turnover.
What We Did
Our first step involved extensive discussions with the CEO to understand his perspectives and objectives for the firm. We then reviewed the financials and conducted in-depth interviews with a broad sample of employees. These steps led us to conduct a preliminary market and competitive assessment.
What We Discovered
The primary driver of both the stalled financial performance and the high employee turnover was a hostile work environment. Many staff were high quality, and they quickly determined that the culture of the firm and the toxic personalities at the executive level were not to their liking.
