McGladrey Receives Award For Coach-On-Call Program

Have you ever had a coach that has made a difference in your life? I have. A great coach can inspire, educate and motivate people to improve their skills, their attitude, their relationship with others and their outlook on life. McGladrey is very, very fortunate to have their very own great coach, Coach Karen.

Coach Karen is available to all McGladrey employees through the company's Coach-on-Call program. McGladrey's Talent Management Director, Teresa Hopke, launched McGladrey’s Coach-on-Call program to help employees take responsibility for their own WorkLife success. “I continually heard from employees that they were grateful for the WorkLife programs we offered at McGladrey, but they didn’t know how to pull all the pieces together,” says Hopke. “Coach-on Call helps employees assess their personal and professional situation, understand available options, and create ‘how-to’ strategies to successfully navigate their work and/or life challenges.”

The program has been so successful that McGladrey will receive today The Alliance for Work-Life Progress' Work-Life Innovative Excellence Award at the WorldatWork Total Rewards 2009 Conference & Exhibition in Seattle. In the video below, Coach Karen and Teresa Hopke explain further how the program works and how it has come to help numerous McGladrey employees.
