COE Selected by EEOC to Design Teambuilding Activities

Rockville, Md. (September 25, 2012) - The Center for Organizational Excellence, Inc. (COE) today announced its award by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC's) for the Office of Human Resources (OHR) teambuilding effort. This initiative is a natural extension of the EEOC's commitment to empowering its employees to deliver the agency's strategic vision. Rather than waiting for minor issues to grow, EEOC OHR is proactively strengthening its team and, by extension, OHR's service to the agency and to the nation.

"OHR is comprised of four teams within a team. As with any team, the organization can realize a significant increase in effectiveness by investing in the assessment and improvement of team interactions," says Lyn McGee, COE's vice president of strategic development. "A proactive approach to teambuilding pays dividends in productivity and, a philosophy COE shares with the EEOC."

COE has a long history of providing organizational and team assessments to improve the overall efficiency and effectiveness of an agency. Our proven holistic approach has been successful at other federal agencies including, U.S. Mint, Department of Defense, U.S. Marshals, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. As with these previous engagements, COE will use team effectiveness assessments, surveys and workshops to better determine cause and effect relationships, discover root causes, and develop creative solutions to solve OHR organizational issues.

"With a strengthened team and clear goals, COE will partner with EEOC OHR to craft concrete steps designed to empower OHR as it delivers mission-critical results," said Steve Goodrich, COE's president and chief executive officer.
