PRLog - Jan. 23, 2012 - LOS ANGELES -- “On Toby’s terms,” written by Charmaine Hammond is about a phenomenal journey the Hammond family experienced with Toby, a Chesapeake Bay retriever who started out as a disaster by routinely destroying things within their home – to a canine who found his calling in life. Toby ultimately became a very successful pet therapy dog who influenced and positively impacted many lives. Recently the amazing and much beloved Toby died, but not before leaving behind his legacy. Impact Motion Pictures is bringing “On Toby’s Terms” to film, there's also a project called A Million Acts of Kindness that's been kicked-off. Additionally, Charmaine has two books just released entitled “Toby The Pet therapy Dog,” and “Bounce Forward – Building Resilient and Inspired Teams.”
Charmaine is sought after due to her excellent work with building inspired teams. She works with tapping into a corporation's inspiration to engage and empower. According to Gallup, 60% of American workers are actively disengaged. 40% of workers intend to leave their job this year and loyalty factor of customers is at an all time low of just 25%, down from 28% from just one year ago. In an effort to address this growing trend, U.S. businesses spent over $40 Billion in workplace training and another $14 Billion in various employee engagement initiatives. Factor in that traditional learning activities seem to be having little affect since research has now made it clear, 85% of workplace learning is never applied on the job. Connect these startling statistics to the growing desire by workers to find more meaning in their work and it forms the potential for the perfect storm for lost productivity and workplace dissatisfaction.
On the opposing end of this trend is an emerging movement by business to provide a more inspiring workplace culture by bringing in Charmaine to show them how to build resilience and build an inspired team.
