Appreciating the Details
Back in February I impulsively bought a plane ticket to visit my sister out in Arizona for a quick weekend adventure. She lives in Tucson, which is just a stone’s throw away from Mexico, but my sights were set on the attractions up north – Horseshoe Bend, Antelope Canyon, and the Grand Canyon. We had 48 hours to make it happen, so naturally I resorted to a Google search on how to maximize on our time. I found an article titled, “The Grand Canyon: how to get the most from a short trip,” filled with great tips. The best one I read was, “… not to just take in the big picture, but to appreciate the small little details of beauty…’” We walked the perimeter of the canyon in complete awe, snapping far too many photos until we found the Kaibab Trail. This trail led us a mile and half down into the canyon to Cedar Ridge, which left us with our jaws dragging on the ground. Seriously – you must see it. This short hike gave us the opportunity to do exactly what the article suggested and take in the little details.
During my time at Morrison, I have participated in the launch of the People Solutions practice area. Much like the rest of the business, this area continues to evolve over time, and years from now, it will probably look different than it does today. When you visit the Morrison website, you’ll notice a few highlighted services that currently make up the practice area as it stands today:
- Recruitment – our unique rate structure coupled with our involved recruitment process allows us to provide our clients with the most qualified candidates to fit their specific needs.
- People Solutions HR Advisement – whether it is an occasional or ongoing need, our team has the knowledge and experience to assist in a number of different human resource projects.
- Organizational Development – while working alongside the individuals that comprise an organization, we use our skills to help clients navigate and manage change in a holistic way.
These services touch on different aspects of a business, but the common thread centers around people. The success of a business is a direct reflection of the people within that business. Although it may be easy to get distracted with day-to-day operations, reflect on what the article I read about the Grand Canyon said: appreciate the small details. Maybe you don’t know where to start, but we can help. When we work with people, we don’t check off boxes and fill out forms. Instead, we focus on anticipating the essentials and preparing a path for growth and innovation.
