HI! I'm Aimee

In the first interview episode of the Transmit Safety Podcast, Aimee and Sarah Williams talk about all things “Good Business.”

Why isn’t doing business that is good for profit, people, and the planet equally the standard?

Join Sarah and I as we talk about the importance of “walking the walk”, and work on redefining “business as usual”.

Explore with us some ways you can take your business or career to the next level, by prioritizing your values, saving time to do what you do best, hiring the right people, and learning to challenge your clients to do the right thing, but most of all by doing good business. Thanks for listening!

In this episode:

  • [15:31] How to map your workflows and guarantee buy-in
  • [19:28] Things that you can do to automate your processes and save time, even without a dedicated software system
  • [24:26] How to recognize your “Zone of Genius”
  • [26:45] Ways to make sure the people you hire are the right fit for you and your business
  • [40:07] The importance of fully committing to your values and prioritizing them in your business strategy

The Transmit Safety Podcast is here to help health and safety practitioners achieve a holistic approach to workplace health and safety to become impactful leaders and put the value of safety into action.

Quotes from this episode

“As businesses, we need to profit in order to continue to have the impact that we want to have. But, there’s more to the story, and I think people leading with that or brands leading with that are where the change is really going to happen.” – Sarah Williams

I think it’s very easy for companies to forget that it’s the people in your company who are making you money, and who are showing up every day, and helping you create the impact that you want to have.– Sarah Williams

“…if you are in business for the long haul, if you are here to build something sustainable that is going to scale, at the end of the day, business comes down to reputation.” – Sarah Williams

“And know that you don’t have to make large, sweeping, systemic changes. You can make small, little, incremental changes to a process or a system as you put in the work and understand ‘what’s not serving me?’, ‘what’s not serving the workers?’, ‘what’s not serving the business in the long run?’ as well. So don’t make work for yourself unless you’re not as busy as you want to be.” – Aimee Arsenault
