“The students in our Social Impact Project team have benchmarked and designed a high performance work environment that is essential for creating a continuously improving Club Experience for our nearly 2,000 youth and teen members.” Saxton continues, “This means attracting and retaining the highest quality instructors and volunteers, as well as recognizing individual and organizational performance.”
“The Club benefits from the diverse team of experienced working professionals in the EMBA program. They had the background, education, and focus to identify and design key human resources practices and the processes needed to support the Clubs’ strategic objectives.” Saxton concluded, “We are now working on implementing those practices so our members get the most benefit from our talented instructors and structured programs.”
