From a fast-growing motor carrier:
“We are a fast-moving carrier with terminals throughout the country. Our customer base is increasing rapidly, and our capacity has grown over 25% in each of the past few years. We called on The Grawe Group to help us make sure our safety and risk management practices are strong, and scalable with our growth plans. Gary and Doug took the time to learn our business needs, our culture, and our people as well as our processes and policies. We loved the tailored, practical recommendations they gave us. They helped us prioritize and implement changes, and more importantly, they taught us how to identify, develop, and implement our own improvements effectively as we grow. They did not just help us, they taught us how to help ourselves and in doing so they really became an extension of our team. We keep using them because they get us, and I count them among my most trusted advisors.”
We led a 150+ truck carrier to scalable, sustainable, best-in-class safety practices and programs that will grow with the company’s aggressive goals.
…especially when it comes time for mom and dad to retire.
So much of the family is tied up in the business, and so much of the business is tied up in the family. Transitioning the organization to the next generation impacts the family yes, but also the employees, customers, and vendors. There are financial and legal considerations of course, but there are also rollout and communication considerations, impact on employees, customers, and vendors to consider, banking relationships to consider, regulatory disclosures to be made, and more.
We led a $400M family-owned and operated organization through a generational leadership change, preserving the legacy of mom and dad, but also setting the stage for the next generation to put its own imprint on the organization.
One or two all-stars can’t carry an organization for any meaningful length of time, no matter the size of the organization. Sustained success requires an engaged workforce with the right people in the right roles focusing on the right challenges.
We revamped human resource practices and policies, developed in depth training programs, and redesigned organizational structures to attract, develop, retain, and empower the right people in the right roles for a $300M organization.
Many businesses are good at identifying acquisition targets and getting a good deal on the buy. But too often businesses don’t spend enough time and energy making sure the acquisition is implemented successfully. Successful implementation takes planning, coordination, exceptional communication, and follow through.
We have led the implementation of a number of full mergers to lasting success that delivered results.
Whether it’s in the form of new statutes and regulations, or new case law, these changes can impact employee relations, insurance requirements, cybersecurity standards, facility upgrades, policy makeovers, and so on. We have navigated independent contractor misclassification risk, ban-the-box legislation, PPP qualification and compliance, wage and hour compliance, class action litigation, safety regulation compliance, and much more for organizations of all sizes.
We have led many organizations through countless changes in the law to ensure organizations remain compliant while still delivering results for their bottom line.
