Keeping Great Crew on Board: SVP Partner Lends her Skills to Summer Search

Posted by seattle

A few years ago, Summer Search was struggling with staff retention and they were concerned about the impact it was having on the students they serve. Mentorship is core to their program and turnover interrupted the relationships between students and staff, not to mention the general productivity loss associated with churn.

“We were really asking ourselves, ‘Once we put everything back together, how can we make it so this doesn’t happen on a regular cycle for us?’” explains Associate Director Melanie Lyons. “We realized we wanted some help and we wanted to be more strategic in the choices we made to make our workplace the best it could be.”

Enter SVP Partner, Kate Cochran whose volunteer project is still generating benefits two years later. Hear from Melanie and Kate below!

Thank you to King 5 anchor, Mark Wright who volunteered to produce this video with Northwest Video Edge founder, Tim Griffis.
