Closing the gaps to maximize work processes

Process Improvements

With the fast pace reality that is work, organizations strive to maintain quality products and services through efficient work processes. For many, processes are bogged down by too many steps, unclear expectations, or multiple streams of work colliding with each other. Without solid work processes, organizations can become stagnant in their growth efforts.

Operant Leadership provides applied research studies to examine work processes, identify gaps and evaluate science based practices for closing those gaps to achieve the end goal. By taking a research approach to process improvement, your organization can scientifically evaluate process changes, before taking the plunge to implement across the company.

Keeping every employee safe, every day


Many industries such as Health and Human Services, Manufacturing, and law enforcement focus on day-to-day safety of employees. Each injury to an employee can cost organizations tens of thousands of dollars on medical needs and insurance. Moreover, human cost of the injury can be even greater. Injuries hurt in more ways than one, which is why applied research in workplace safety has been a focus of behavioral science for decades.

Operant Leadership provides expertise and conducts applied research to evaluate safety efforts to achieve the most important goal for any company – every employee safe, every day. We help you identify critical areas to improve work place safety, by directly observing behavior in real time to understand what is driving safe versus unsafe behavior, and test solutions so you can do what works. And, your solutions will have employees wanting to engage in the process.
