In 2008, President and Founder Beth Sears, PhD, formed Workplace Communication, Inc. to assist organizations and individuals with improving productivity through enhanced communication, employee engagement, and loyalty.
Beth holds a PhD in Communication from the University of Buffalo, and her past experience includes a culmination of thirty years at General Motors. Additionally, Beth has spent eighteen years as an adjunct instructor for the School of Industrial and Labor Relations at Cornell University, and currently serves as an adjunct professor at Nazareth College’s School of Management.
Beth is highly accomplished at linking research and theory with workplace experience in order to understand what cultivates change in the workplace.
The overall goal of Workplace Communication, Inc. is to help organizations create great places to work with loyal, engaged employees. Creating a high-trust culture helps to improve the quality of all employee’s lives and the productivity of your organization. When there is a sense of shared purpose, people deliver outstanding results. The approach Beth uses is strongly influenced by the research of organizations on Fortune’s Great Places to Work® list. By interviewing executives, she grew to understand how these companies created a culture where people wanted to stay and grow, thus integrating these strategies into her consulting, coaching and training services.
