PeopleSense Consulting Named NHBSR Sustainability Slam Finalist!

PeopleSense Consulting was again named a finalist in the Small Company category for Workplace in the 2020 NHBSR Sustainability Slam! This annual event is full of great stories, that like ours, inspire businesses both big and small to take on the really important issues. We can be a force for change.

Our story: When COVID hit, many businesses stopped pursuing training and professional development opportunities. The immediate public health risk was the priority (understandably), but we knew that the need to take care of everyday employee situations never goes away.

PeopleSense reached out to all our clients and offered free services to anyone needing to address an employee situation (such as struggling performance, conflict, or team building). With many unknown factors, including financial uncertainly for ourselves, we felt this would give employers an avenue to support their staff without risk or budget.

We felt great about being of service at such an unsettling time. In order to be a sustainable organization, everyone needs to rally to help each other, even when times are tough for the giver, too. We’re all in this together.

To tell our story for the NHBSR Slam, we had to make a video that was played live at the event. We had a blast making our video entry (spoiler alert…there was singing 🎤!). If you want to sing along, here are our original lyrics (written by the amazing Caroline Tremblay!)

Here’s a little song we wrote
You might relate to every note
Because Covid…is rotten

Struggling teams & Zoom fatigue
Raise your hand if you’ve dealt with these
Team building…gets (is) forgotten

(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh, oo-ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh ooh) Don’t worry
(Oo-ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh ooh) Be happy
(Oo-ooh oo-ooh ooh) Don’t worry, be happy

Employee problems don’t just go away
Unless you address them day to day
But no budget…means no training

We know this is reality
So why not share our time for free?
Then no one…is left hanging.

At PeopleSense we help out teams
Support professionals and their dreams
We give back…to inspire

It’s all about relationships
They matter most in times like this.
Because together…we rise higher.

(Ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh, oo-ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh ooh) Don’t worry
(Oo-ooh oo-ooh oo-ooh ooh) Be happy
(Oo-ooh oo-ooh ooh) Don’t worry, be happy

(Gratitude to the rest of the team who helped bring this together. Music performed by Erin Girouard. Audio and video engineering by Loud Sun Studio.)
