HI! I'm Aimee

In today’s episode of Transmit Safety, Aimee is chatting with Tiffany Castagno about business, buzzwords, culture, and much more.

There are so many things in the business world that companies adopt because it’s something “the cool kids are doing” or their fear of missing out.

What they don’t always stop to consider, though, is what that means for their organization and if the policies and processes they develop or the values they say they stand for actually align and work with the company’s culture.

So, join me and Tiffany Castagno, the CEO and founder of the Human Resources consulting firm CEPHR, LLC, as we discuss what’s really behind business buzzwords such as “P.T.O.”, “employee engagement”, and “safety culture”, as well as how to build strong teams and a strong employer brand and culture.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The truth about P.T.O.
  • The key role of the onboarding process 
  • Employee engagement is not just a buzzword
  • The importance of breaking down the silos between professions 
  • Legacy and Impactful leadership
  • Nurturing a strong brand and culture
  • Developing (and updating) aligned policies and procedures

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

Quotes from this episode

“Onboarding and orientation isn’t just the first day, there should be a length of time for that to build employee engagement.”

“Employee engagement (is)… capturing employees’ hearts from the moment they walk in the door, through the time they leave.”

“We can’t live in these little silos, we need each other to make employee engagement really work.”

“So often what you see is people just want you to tell them what to do. They want a solution. And I’m solution focused, I know that you are too. But the beauty in growth, and really discovery and innovation, (and) creativity lies in the conversation and our fails, our mistakes and how we handle those.”

“Culture is not just what comes from on high, from the leaders, regardless of how flat or tall your infrastructure, your hierarchy are.”

“If it’s not serving a purpose within your organization, why is it still in your manual?”
