You won’t want to miss our DIG19 Annual Seminar with Coach and People Developer, Ryan Houmand. Spend the day learning about transitioning from great manager to a great leader through employee engagement and to your own strengths. By the end of the day, you’ll LOVE Monday just like Friday, but for a different reason.

Over the lunch break, we’ll be partnering with UnitedHealthcare to engage in some community service by assembling and providing much needed hygiene kits for the clients of First Step House in Salt Lake City.

First Step House’s mission is to people build lives of meaning, purpose, and recovery. They have found that an essential element in the recovery process is helping people find, or rediscover, a deep sense of meaning and purpose in their lives. This begins by showing compassion and respect for every client served. During the recovery process, First Step House works hard to provide the scaffolding their clients need to thrive. Examples of this include, increasing people’s connection to support groups, providing individual and group therapy, helping clients find affordable housing, addressing health concerns, and helping people who are legally involved. As clients stabilize in recovery, First Step House encourages them to give back to the community, and they work hard to provide recovery services for those with the greatest need and find a deep sense of purpose in this work.
