    and raise engagement

  • You are here.

    (well, ok, you’re pretty darn close)

  • You can be on the slopes in 30 minutes.

  • 1. Share your name, your title, your company’s name, and where you call home

    2. Share what you’re most excited to learn from the conference

    3. Share what you plan to do in Salt Lake City while you’re not attending the conference

    Get to know each other

  • 2,000+ employees 7 offices in six states $1 billion company

  • I love the open communication, the fun benefits, and the amount of coaching and development that is available to me.

  • Just continued improvement in communication and understanding between the different parts of the

    wheel that work together to make this CHG car go. We've come along way. We still have room for improvement.

  • Once I realized I could be open and honest with my feedback to my team and let myself be receptive to their feedback, it was like an epiphany. It is absolutely freeing to have that kind of dialogue with coworkers and I really feel like it's had an impact on my personal communication.

  • Less meetings and communications that don't have a true value...we have far too many meetings and emails that just reiterate the same info over and over and take time away from more important tasks.

  • The transparency in this company from the CEO to my

    direct leader allows me to trust this company and engage

    myself more in my job.
