Janet took the time to truly understand the culture of our company before assisting us in designing the right communications solution. She efficiently probed each stakeholder level of the organization prior to effectively facilitating a consortium of executives and front-line managers. Every constituency had a “voice” which ultimately led to new systems and protocols that were aligned with our business objectives, yet fit an 87 year-old family culture as well. We look forward to working with her again soon.
John T. Bettin, President & CEO, Palm Restaurant Group
Janet is a talented professional and a incredibly important strategic partner to Enlivant.
I'm always equally impressed with both Janet's "what" and "how", when she works with our organization on various people related initiatives.
She delivers what she promises, and does it in a way that really resonates with our people and culture.
We view Janet as an ongoing extension of our team. We are thankful to her for the lasting and meaningful contributions she has made to our culture and the build out of Enlivant's national operating platform.
Jack R. Callison Jr., Enlivant CEO
Thankfully Janet came our way! Janet plays a critical role in the history of our turnaround at Enlivant! Janet has a unique ability to read an audience and to maximize the output of individuals that she does not know well. This is because Janet builds immediate trust and folks want to participate with her as they achieve shared objectives. Janet is 100% reliable and partners to meet deadlines on the clients time table. Most importantly, Janet becomes a friend and is dependable once a project is complete to offer advice and to fine tune her work.
Janet doesn’t give answers to people, she inspires and leads them to discover what best suits their environment. This authenticity in her style fosters pride and “ownership” by the client for the end result. Janet has a refreshing “low ego” and is a cheerleader for her clients when they reach milestones in their projects, or completion.
Janet’s corporate job experience provides real credibility to clients as she lends a hand to them to enhance their business results.
Peter C. Smith, Chief Human Resources Officer, Enlivant
When working with Janet, her extensive experience in Operations, Training and Human Resources is very evident. This cross-functional know-how added tremendous value to the projects Janet worked on at Macaroni Grill. In addition, Janet invests a lot of time, upfront to ensure expectations are aligned and outcomes are achieved. Her work on our entire management training and development process has been transformational. Our new managers are leaving training far more prepared and performing at a much higher level based on the new program Janet created. I highly recommend Janet to any organization that desires a fresh and innovative approach to training and seeks a true partner to help them find valuable and long lasting performance improvement solutions.
Steve Baker, VP, Learning & Development, Romano’s Macaroni Grill
Janet Hoffmann is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable leaders in the area of Human Resources and Leadership Development that I have had the pleasure of working with, which is continually proven through her ability to objectively evaluate, challenge thinking, keep teams focused and deliver results. Janet approaches each project with analytical and strategic thinking to best fit both the needs of the company and the personnel in charge of the project. She keeps teams focused on achieving targeted benchmarks and when necessary, helps the team see potential barriers to momentum and provides recommendations against those barriers. Janet’s genuine, supportive approach has been welcomed by our entire team and personally, as a peer, I sincerely appreciate the ability to partner with someone I highly respect and trust.
