As we have been sharing with you, IMSolutions is on a journey to become a world class organization with a strong culture, and YOU at the heart of it. Over the last year, we conducted a survey through the Washington Post about best places to work. What we learned was that the majority of you thought IMSolutions was pretty good. However, what was more valuable for the leadership was learning what we could do to make our company even better. As a result, we were able to develop a 3-year strategy and our first set of 90-day initiatives to execute our vision that would bring us one step closer to world class greatness.
Our 90-Day initiatives focused around 5 key areas we understood from your feedback, external analysis, and company philosophy that would be most impactful in moving our success needle to be strategic communication, achieving big business success while maintaining a small business culture, employee satisfaction, partnership, and business development.
On January 18, 2018, we met as a leadership team to debrief about each of our specific actions to assess our level of success for our 90-day initiatives. As measured by our riginal goal line, we were able to score some major wins during this time. The team was able to implement some major enhancing tools and practices to improve communication across the company, with this newsletter being one result. Additionally, we implemented YouEarnedIt to more widely and routinely promote peer-to-peer recognition and engagement. We’ve also established a strong need with our clients and partners for there to be time when you’re allowed to plug back into home base to discuss important corporate business that affects you. We’ve worked really hard to gauge and sustain a high level of employee satisfaction through increased peer-to-peer and global recognition. We also facilitated social giving activities to allow some of our deeper passions to be realized through a coalition of support. Although it was the holiday season, we’ve done our best to stay as engaged with our current partners while meeting new companies and individuals with a similar culture and complementary skillsets to enhance business offerings and targeted areas. In an effort to continue with improved communication, I also want to share some of our failures and things we will be doing differently as we attack our next 90-day tasks. We learned that many of the areas originally targeted were slightly limiting. Although this enable us to begin collecting benchmarking data quickly, we feel it’s imperative that we broaden our holistic view to ensure the roadmap for success that we designed for IMSolutions is not only successful in terms of corporate growth and numbers, but truly enriches your life. Therefore, we decided to reclassify our employee satisfaction initiative as employee engagement. In the coming 90-days we will be sitting with each and every one of you to go over our new job description template, learning and professional development plan, as well as our revamped appraisal system. We believe that with this process, while we may not always be happy, we will be will informed. That knowledge will be much more empowering than the emotion. Needless to say, we’ve been busy, and because we are focused on making things the best for you, we will be even busier. Please feel free to ask your Program Manager about any of these initiatives or don’t hesitate to give me a call or shoot me an email. Day by day, we are becoming a better company. Just when we think we’ve reached our best, we will set a new bar!

Our team also writes Technical Instructions, MAMS, Naval Messages, Statements of Work, and Letters of Instructions for the LTV program.
