Tools to identify the root causes of staff turnover
I’m Grace LaConte, owner of LaConte Consulting based in Vancouver, Washington. We serve business owners who want an outside-the-box approach to reverse a toxic workplace environment.
Using a unique focus on the feedback of “Foundational Staff,” we offer owners the guidance and tools to identify problems with equity, inclusion, and bias. Our goal is to turn a toxic workplace into one that is healthy and effective for years to come.
In addition to decreasing staff turnover and improving engagement, LaConte Consulting’s clients generate an average of 20%-40% in additional profit after partnering with us.
Reversing a Toxic Workplace
We specialize in analyzing the root causes that result in a work environment plagued with dysfunction and inefficiency. Our services include:
- Foundational Employee Interviews
- Lactation Laws (policy review, accommodations, and training)
- Employee For a Day Experience
- Ideal Customer Evaluation
- Profit Margin Analysis
Unlike some consulting agencies, we do not believe that a “bandage approach” actually solves the problem. Instead, we develop a structured framework so owners can make informed decisions, identify risks before they happen, and achieve their ultimate goals.
We believe it is important for leaders to discover the existing value in their workplace by…
- hearing the voices of employees,
- experiencing useful pain and discomfort,
- recognizing the ways we may subconsciously hurt others, and
- reviewing past business decisions to plan for the future.
Discover how to evaluate and fix your company’s potential blind spots. We specialize in job shadowing, staff interviews, lactation policies, and profit analysis.
Our process starts with a free discussion, after which you can choose a Discovery Session or Customized Project to analyze what is holding your company back from growth.
As a consultant, writer, and dynamic speaker, Grace can connect with any audience by challenging old beliefs about communication and management. Her range of topics are available in workshops, keynotes, and seminars. Find out more here.
