Miron Construction Co., Inc. is committed to building a strong internal culture and people practices that align with its core values. Building from their existing six drivers, the team is looking for support and guidance in best practices for development and roll-out of elevated values.

Beginning in April 2021, the humanworks8 team facilitated 13 Values Discovery Sessions with Miron team members representing all departments, levels and tenures within the organization. The stories surfaced during these conversations created a sense of pride among participants, as they were reminded of what makes Miron a great place to work.

Common themes were identified across the sessions and values were drafted, edited and perfected until we landed on five new core values. Throughout this time, we also facilitated Ground Rules discussions and prioritized the people touchpoints within the business. Top touchpoints included Communications, Onboarding & Orientation, Recognition and an all-company training called The Miron Way.

The humanworks8 team worked alongside Miron to plan the values launch at the annual employee summit, and ultimately co-presented the unveiling of the values at the start of 2022. Meanwhile, values were incorporated into various communication efforts, including internal channels such as the intranet, e-mail templates, signatures and employee swag, and external channels including the Miron website, business cards, employee LinkedIn header images and more. The Miron Way experienced a full overhaul, launching its first renewed event in Q2 2022. Recognition and onboarding experiences were also elevated with values at the center.

Client Feedback

In 2021, Miron embarked on a journey to revisit and potentially revise our six corporate drivers to ensure they remained authentic to who we are as an organization. We felt it was critical to partner with an outside organization that specializes in this type of work to ensure we didn’t enter the process with any preconceived notions or biases. After going through an RFP process, we selected humanworks8, and looking back, we could not have asked for a more talented, genuine, and passionate group of individuals to work with. The team at humanworks8 truly became an extension of the Miron family. We are so grateful for their guidance and assistance with defining our organization’s core values. We were thrilled with the results not only because they so artfully captured what drives our organization, but because they worked so closely with our employees to articulate them. I have no doubt that we will remain connected to the team at humanworks8 and I am hopeful that we will have the opportunity to work with them again in the future.
