Keeping employees engaged

Employers recognize it is crucial to ensure that employees feel heard and valued. Part of that comes from offering ongoing training to show employees the importance of their work.

Breckenridge Grand Vacations, a real estate development and property management company, believes engagement is vital to recruiting, retaining and developing talent.

“We periodically review our compensation and benefits packages to maintain our competitive advantage in the labor market,” said Rob Dollars, employee experience manager.

“That has helped us stay 95%

staffed or better, companywide.”

Lindsay Marten, from Charles Schwab’s public relations team, said employees at the financial services company appreciate its culture and the ability to provide feedback through regular surveys.

The company also encourages a healthy work-life balance with a hybrid schedule that balances the importance of in-person interactions and personal responsibilities.

Schwab allows employees to take a 28-day sabbatical after every five years of service to spend time with family, travel and reset.

Liliana Mendez, Madison& Co Properties operations manager, said the real estate company prioritizes ongoing training and support for its agents.

“Our luxury marketing strategies set the standard in the industry, supported by a team of seasoned professionals and outstanding managing brokers who ensure seamless transactions. However,

it’s our collaborative ‘We’ mindset that truly defines us, fostering teamwork, support and shared success among our agents and clients alike.”

Binh Diep, Slalom Denver’s general manager, said the consulting companyfocuses on caring for its employees.

“When Slalom was created, we had a vision of being a place where people can truly grow the most in their careers, and we still take that very seriously,” he said.

“Whether it’s ourfocus on aligning our teams to meaningful work or our intentional approach to career development, we believe our people are our most powerful asset, and making sure we have their trust and partnership is crucial to the success of our business.”

The company, which is a real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns and operates apartment communities across the United States, alsooffersa benefits package that includes a parental leave program, child care discounts, noontimeoffice closures on summer Fridays, leadership development programs, and reimbursement of citizenship fees for teammates who become U.S. citizens.

“Providing homes is a high calling and one that deserves to be taken seriously withthe utmost care and respect. We also know how important it is to reward our team for theirefforts and support them as individuals,” Joslin said.

Breckenridge Grand Vacations offers remote work in some departments and provides benefits like team outings, ski and ride days, employee access to the company’s Ball Arena suite, and tickets to sporting events.


Whether hiring new employees to expand or to meet existing needs, top employers know they need to do more than place help wanted ads.

DaVita,a health care company that provides kidney dialysis ser-

vices to patients with chronic kidney failure, is working to address the ongoing nursing shortage. According to April 2023 data from the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, 610,000 registered nurses plan to leave the field by 2027 due to stress, burnout and retirement.

In addition to helping nurses thrive at work, DaVita also is working to recruit new nurses by:

• Working with universities, such as Chamberlain University, to increase understanding of nephrology among nursing students. The company also announced an award from the DaVita Giving Foundation to Western Governors University for a $1 million grant to help increase nursing degree completion at the university nationwide.

•Offering clinical internships to nursing students to experience firsthand the practice and meaning of delivering kidney care.

• Creating a residency program to support nurse graduates during their first year.

Nurses receive additional training and are mentored by senior nurses.

“One of the greatest challenges facing the health care community today is there’s growing demand for highly skilled clinicians, and there’s not ample supply. We’re actively focused on creating pathways to education while also reducing burnout for caregivers in the field today,” said Javier Rodriguez, chief executiveofficerfor DaVita.

Companies boostefficiency with AI technology

In today’s evolving work environment, some of The Denver Post’s Top Workplaces use artificial intelligence to maximize their potential.

Companies from different industries— such as real estate, finance, consulting, hospitality and health care are exploring ways to incorporate AI technology into their operations to improveefficiency and productivity while maintaining a human touch.

This includes using AI for tasks from proofreading and data analysis to implementing chatbots for customer service and utilizing predictive modeling for patient care.

Slalom,a consulting firm focusing on strategy, technology and

business transformation, believes AIoffers opportunitiesfor its staff and clients. To that end, Slalom is analyzing potential uses and had 1,000 clients use 1,000 demos in 100 days.

“We now have a robust inventory of use cases that we can share with our clients and start from,” said Binh Diep, Slalom Denver’s general manager.

Using AI for communication

Nancy Kern, CoralTree marketing vice president, said the company which develops and manages world-class independent luxury and lifestyle hotels and resorts plans to use AI tools to enhance operationalefficiency.

This year, the company plans to use AI for personalized marketing,

customerengagement and administrative functions like summarizing meetings, meetings and conferences.

Coral Tree plans to use AI to:

• Analyze customer data to create detailed profiles, allowing hotels to understand individual preferences and behaviors.

• Create marketing messages to deliver the right message to the rightaudience at the right time.

• Create targeted advertisingby using AI algorithms to optimize advertisingefforts.

• Assist with social media managementbyautomating posts, analyzing engagement metrics and identifying trends.

• Use AI-powered chatbots to provide 24/7 customer service via instant responses to customer

inquiries, which improves customer service and engagement.

• Gauge customer sentimentby analyzing social media and online reviews to help hotels understand their reputations and make improvements.

Rob Dollars, Breckenridge Grand Vacations employee experience manager, said the real estate development and property management company is exploring opportunities to use AI but doesn’t want to sacrifice the human touch.

“In my role, I do a lot of writing—a task that I very much enjoy,” he said “AI can be useful as a proofreader andfor suggesting edits. But, in my opinion, authentic tone requires a human touch on the keyboard.”

Mike Bunting, Bloom Healthcare’s chief operatingofficer and co-founder, said the company, which provides hands-on care to help patients age in place, sees tremendous opportunity in AI.

“Health care today demands an enormous investment in administrative work, whether it be documentation, scheduling, chart review, records requests, medication reviews, or any number of other time-intensive tasks,” said Bunting.

Using AI to automate these tasks can decrease administrative burdens and allow more time to focus on clinical decision-making, communication and building relationships with patients Next, the company plans to use predictive modeling to help proactively identify markers of patients’ worsening conditions.

Liliana Mendez, Madison& Co Properties operations manager, said the real estate agency uses AI to assist in data analysis, market research and personalized client interactions.

“These tools empower our team to focus on high-value tasks, fostering a culture of innovation and excellence within our workplace.”

Kathleen Hoxworth, Elevations Credit Union communications and talent strategy vice president, said

the company uses an AI writing tool and isexploring using an internal AI knowledge assistant to improve accuracy andefficiency.

“We have two pilots planned and expect to be able to decide whether we continue withthem later this year.”

Being cautious

Stephanie Joslin, AIR Communities corporate communications director, said the real estate investment trust (REIT) that owns and operates apartment communities across the United States has invested in automation and AI technology for many years.

“We will continue to explore all the ways it can positively impact our residents, our team and our business,” Joslin said. “We don’t pursue technology just for the sake of technology. We’ve rolled out generative AI guiding principles to our teammates to ensure we’re using it responsibility.”

Marisa Daspit, Ibotta chief peopleofficer, said the shopping rewards company has been investigating AI tools and analyzing which might work best for its employees.

“While we know how impactful AI is and anticipate its uses to grow exponentially, we strongly believe that AI is only as good as the people who use it,” Daspit said.

“Finding the right balance between what we can automate via AI and what will always need human input is an ongoing priority.” BUILDINGALEGACYOF PROJECTEXCELLENCE. 7 | TOP WORKPLACES | ★ DENVERPOST.COM WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 2024

Employers use these tools to retain top talent

The Denver Post’s Top Workplaces employers understand that keeping their employees engaged and maintaininga healthy worklife balance are critical factors in retaining their most valuable assets.

Although the Great Resignation is over, because Colorado’s unemployment rate remains under 4%, retaining and recruiting quality employees continues to be challenging.

According to an Express Employment Professionals-Harris Poll survey, one-third of U.S. hiring managers expect employee turnover to continue this year.

The average cost of losing an

employee is $36,295, while some employers estimate it to be as high as $100,000 or more due to lost productivity and the cost of rehiring, the survey said.

Employers attribute turnover to:

• Better pay/benefits or company cultureoffered elsewhere

• Increased workplace demands

• Resignations

• Employees feeling overworked

• Competitive job market

• Better perks like summer Fridays or unlimited vacation days

• Retirement

The best workplaces prioritize employee engagement and worklife balance to retain top talent and attract new employees.

Theyoffer perks such as flexible work arrangements, robust benefits packages, career development

opportunities and a focus on giving back to the community, which create high employee satisfaction and retention rates.

Flexibility remains in demand

Employees continue to demand opportunities to work from home or maintain a flexible, hybrid schedule Most Top Workplaces meet that need.

Elevations Credit Unionoffers hybrid work and asks employees to be in theoffice 50% of the time.

Charles Schwab uses a hybrid schedule to encouragea healthy work-life balance.

Bloom Healthcare, which provides hands-on care to help patients age in place,offers flexible

work schedules and work-fromhome opportunities to accommodate employees.

“We recognize that life can sometimes be unpredictable, and by providing flexibility in their work hours and location, we empower our employees to maintain a healthy work-life balance,” said Mike Bunting, Bloom Healthcare’s chief operatingofficer and co-founder.

Liliana Mendez, Madison& Co. Properties operations manager, said the real estate company recognizes the importance of work-life balance and prioritizes it within its culture. “Our flexible schedules and remote work opportunities empower our team to achieve a healthy balance between their

personal and professional lives,” she said.

Marisa Daspit, Ibotta chief peopleofficer, said the shopping rewards company listened to employees to create their desired work environment. To help employees return to theoffice, Ibotta pays for on-site parking and provides a lunch stipend.

“Weoffer a hybrid approach that includes high-impact in-office days and work-from-home days each week, so our local Denver employees get the best of both worlds,” she said.

Listening to employees

Colorado’s Top Workplaces employees want their bosses to listen to their concerns.

Elevations Credit Union regularly surveys staff, starting with 30-, 60-, and 90-day check-ins for new employees, twice-annual employee engagement surveys, and benefits surveys every few years.

“It’s keyfor us to give our

employees the opportunity to tell us what we’re doing well and how we can improve. That kind of communication is one of the best ways for us to make sure we’re looking after their needs,” said Kathleen Hoxworth, Elevations Credit Union communications and talent strategy vice president.

Binh Diep, Slalom Denver’s general manager, said feedback and communication are crucial to helping employees thrive by ensuring leadership knows what they need.

“Feedback cycles, both upwards and downwards, celebrating each other’s achievements area few things, but also making sure we have the right support systems in placefor our teams,” Diep said.

Valuing employee contributions

Employees also want to know their supervisors value their work and understandhow theirefforts help the company.

Daspit said the company’s mission-driven culture sets it apart.

“Our values of ownership and ‘a good idea can come from anywhere’ mean that employees, at all

levels, can make an impact,” she said.

“Our revenue organization works with some of the largest brands and retailers in the world. Our marketing team is empowered to deploy budgets without unnecessary manager approvals, and our technology groups frequently host hacka-thons to brainstorm and deliver solutions.”

Mike Bunting, Bloom Healthcare’s chief operatingofficer and co-founder, said attracting and retaining top talent is crucial to the company’s success.

As an employee-owned organization, Bloom employees participate in the company’s growth and success, which createsa culture of aligned goals and decision-making that promotes buy-in and retention.

Bloom’s environment is dedicated to helping team members “Bloom personally, Flourish professionally, and Thrive as members of our community.”

“You’ll often hearand see references to ‘Bloom, Flourish, Thrive’ across our organization, whether it be our charitable foundation or our employee-led culture commit-

tee. Bloomers have embraced this philosophy wholeheartedly,” Bunting said.

Improving skills

Employees also want to grow and develop professionally by learning new skills.

To help employees “flourish professionally,” Bloom provides mentoring and coaching to provide guidance, support, and opportunities for professional growth. It also offers a comprehensive leadership training program to nurture and enhance leadership skills.

“We are dedicated to creating an environment that supports the growth and development of our employees and enhances their overall well-being,” Bunting said.

The processfor keeping Elevations Credit Union employees starts with a robust 90-day orientation process and continues with training, development, and mentoring.

“We want Elevations to be the best place our employees have ever worked,” Hoxworth said “We have many programs in place to not only provide great experiences but also ensure that we understand and meet our staff’s needs.”

7 common traits of a terrific workplace

What exactly does a highperforming workplace look like? The best workplaces know their strengths and weaknesses, which helps them focus on where they excel and identify opportunities for improvement.

Company culture impacts productivity and performance. When a company hasa high-performance culture, employees are motivated to go above and beyond, daily operations are moreefficient and customers feel the improvements. Recruitment and retention jump, too, when people talk about their amazing and productive culture.

Here are seven common characteristics to a high-performing workplace culture:

1. Motivational and inspirational leaders. The tone is set at the top. Motivational leaders inspire employees to reach their fullest potential. When more people are driven to achieve success, performance skyrockets.

2. Engaged and empowered employees: Companies perform at a higher level when employees are engaged. An engaged workforce brings together people willing to go the extra mile.

3. Strong growth mindset: Growth directly correlates with organizational and financial success Companies must have a robust and open-minded growth mindset to perform at a high level. From entry-level employees to senior executives, it creates a culture where everyone is empowered to embrace challenges, learn together and develop innovative ideas.

4. Trust and understanding: Employees lean in when they trust the process and understand their direct impact on company performance. High performance cultures rely on leadership to motivate employees and build trust. Engaged, trusting employees see how their daily tasks contribute to company performance. And if they do not, it is the job of leadership to build trust and understanding.

5. Continuous learning: To stay innovative and hungry, employ-

the top.

Every high-performing workplace culture is built on the same four principles: people, technology, culture and intentional organization.

6. Communication and collaboration: Whether it’s helping a teammate or a different department, high performance cultures are built on support. When employees collaborate and work towards shared goals, they save time. That time can then be used to think outside the box or work on another project.

7. Culture of accountability and autonomy: Defining responsibilities and timelines keeps everyone accountable and on track. In high-performance environments, employees need to know exactly what isexpected and how to properly handle slowdowns. After all, things will always pop up. How teams handle them and take responsibility says a lot about company culture and the tone at

Get the right people: People are the backbone of any organization. Hiring hungry, like-minded people who value performance and innovation makes it easier to achieve shared goals. Identify the hard and soft skills needed to succeed in your organization, and hire based on those skills. It’s about who is the most productive and who cares about your core values Hiring employees with meaningful connections to your company vision makes success more satisfying.

Invest in technology: Investing in new technology and tools gives employees the opportunity to save time and learn new skills Automating repetitive tasks can improveengagement and reduce burnout, keeping the whole team performing at a higher level. Create a productive culture: Whether they work remotely or in person, employees need a sup-

portive and productive culture to perform well.

Their physical work environment and overarching culture must motivate people to get their work done and go the extra mile. Perks such as child care, fancy coffee machines, comfortable desk chairs and Spotify or Calm subscriptions make people happier and more motivated. Build the right processes: Structure guides employees, managers and leaders to greatness. Clear responsibilities, communication from leadership, alignment across teams, training sessions and confidential employee feedbackchannels make it easier to beefficient. By establishing standards, guidelines and checkpoints, organizations ensure outputs meet high-quality standards and identify opportunities for refinement and optimization, ultimately enhancing performance over time.

HRMS discovers key to keeping employees happy

HRMS Solutions helps other companies simplify and streamline human resources management while providing employees with a fully remote workplace with an excellent work-life balance.

“We believe that if we take good care of our team, they will take great care of clients,” said Sandi Mundt, HRMS Solutions marketing vice president.

Thisis the second year HRMS Solutions has been named one of the Denver Post’s Top Workplaces. Last year, the company ranked second for best small business.

HRMS, an exclusive UKG Services Partner, enables enterprise and mid-market companies to manage, empower, and optimize their workforce using UKG’s workforce management solutions. Mundt said that specializing with one vendor allows the company to attract and maintain a deep bench of knowledge and experience with UKG HR, payroll and workforce management.

“We don’t do cookie-cutter, limited formulaic implementations; ourfocus is on quality and thoroughness to the unique needs of each client,” she said.

Lookingforward, HRMS plans to continue increasing headcount, revenue and profit. The company will continually analyze its processes and systems to improve how it does business while maintaining the company culture that attracts and retains HRMS employees.

The company also continues to innovate and improve.

“Innovation keeps us competi-

tive and profitable, allowing us to be the best at what we do,” Mundt said.

After forming in 2003 and operatingfor 12 years in Washington, D.C., the company relocated its headquarters to Boulder.

“Colorado is simply a beautiful state filled with opportunities,” Mundt said. “As a company, we have access to a well-educated, growing population of potential employees, and having Boulder as our executive leadership base allows us to do business adaptively across multiple time zones.”

CirrusMD’s virtual care makes life easier for patients

CirrusMD helps solve three of health care’s most pervasive problems lack of access, relevant information and care continuity. The company lets patients connect with a doctor from any web-enabled device.

“At CirrusMD, patients are met bya doctor in less than 60 seconds, 24/7/365,” said JamieHall, president and CEO. “Care is delivered via secure chat by board-certified doctors who covera wide range of care needs.”

Thisis the third year CirrusMD has been named one of the Denver Post’s Top Workplaces. Last year, the company ranked 14th for best small business.

The past few years have challenged healthcare as consumers seek more convenience.

“We’ve seen the tele-health space

evolve from traditional types of care (acute or urgent care) to much broader careofferings virtually, like chronic condition management, women’s health and behavioral health. We’ve seen technology take giant leapsforward, enabling new tools that let physicians work moreefficiently and with better resources,”Hall said.

“CirrusMD is right in the sweet spot of these trends. We launched a new model of care called Physician-first Care & Guidance, that lets our doctors deliver care that’s instantly accessible, always informed, and directly connected to the patient’s longitudinal health record.”

“Most of our employees start their day right aftera quick dog walk,” Hall said.

“We stay well-connected through frequent virtual company and team meetings, so communication

“Asa health care company, we’re very focused on how better care can improve the lives of American workers and their families,” Hall said.

The company also is working to create a complete and fully portable patient health record.

“For anyone who’s ever changed physicians, changed insurance companies, or changed health systems, you know what it’s like to try to recreate your previous health history,” he said.
