Giving more than just lip service to its corporate values of fulfillment, trust and respect, the firm of Berman McAleer engages a relationship coach once a year to work with the entire staff.

“At the end of the day, we genuinely want our employees to be fulfilled and happy,” said David Berman, co-founder and CEO. “Also, in order to be productive and efficient as a company, I need this very diverse group coming together as a team.”

The coach, who works with groups and individuals, conducts personality assessments and teaches skills such as empathetic listening and how to communicate in a way that matches the listener’s needs or processing style.

The coaching has been profoundly impactful because people are more willing and able to express themselves in constructive ways, Mr. Berman said. It has given employees an understanding of how their coworkers think, and has provided the tools to work through and minimize conflicts — whether at work or at home.

“We believe that if you invest in and build up the individuals, you get higher quality work,” Mr. Berman said. “They will be trying harder because they will by fulfilled by the success of the company.”
