It is nearly January, which at HopeWorks means that we are almost half-way through our fiscal year, which goes from July 1st to June 30th each year.
This is a great time to reflect on what we have accomplished so far this year. Your Director Team gave me an update recently of what has been accomplished so far DURING A GLOBAL PANDEMIC and IT IS AMAZING to see what has been done! Each Enterprise has been able to increase revenue, reduce costs and maximize the opportunities they have had in marketing and partnerships during a very challenging time.
Starting in January, we will be looking to what goals are ahead of us for the rest of the fiscal year. We will be sharing what that looks like in more detail at our January All-Staff meeting. But in the meantime, I would ask you to reflect on what you see as accomplishments in your Enterprise and your professional accomplishments this year.
Our Training Program - HopeWorks North Star - currently has three trainees each in ALL THREE Enterprises! With designated Trainers, supportive teams and new curriculum, we are reaching our training goals and recently had two graduates celebrated at Renew. Thanks to our partners in EE&T for their hard work making this happen.
For me, this has been the most difficult year of my personal and professional career, with challenges around every corner. This team continues to inspire me to dig deep and keep going to reach our North Star together. You are resilient, courageous and keep persevering despite the obstacles. Just think what we can do together when our businesses are fully open and the pandemic is in the rear-view mirror!
Thank you for your hard work. Happy New Year! Renata
