TAMPA, Fla., Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Valet Living the only nationally recognized full-service amenities provider to the multifamily housing industry, today announced that it is a recipient of the Brandon Hall Group Human Capital Management (HCM) Excellence Awards in the Best Advance in Creating a Talent Strategy category. The awards are given to organizations that show excellence in learning and development, talent management, leadership development, talent acquisition, human resources, sales performance, diversity, equity & inclusion and the future of work. Entries were evaluated by a panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, Brandon Hall Group analysts and executives based upon these criteria: fit the need, design of the program, functionality, innovation and overall measurable benefits.

Valet Living, in partnership with Quantum Workplace, transformed its talent management strategy to drive associate, team and business success. With its new program, Valet Living was focused on getting the right talent in the right seats, and then retaining those individuals through intentional coaching and mentoring to optimize performance. Valet Living’s talent initiatives have achieved broad adoption across the organization, as more than 80% of its associates are intentionally discussing their performance and growth opportunities each month.

Valet Living seeks to attract and retain standard-setting talent; associates who wish to learn and grow as they train with some of the best in the industry.

“For the past four years, through our partnership with Quantum Workplace, we have taken a progressive approach to talent management, with the addition of monthly performance conversations, regular talent reviews and associate experience insights,” said Henry Toledo, chief people officer at Valet Living.  “These talent management strategies have enabled Valet Living to continue to deepen our engagement with associates while ultimately providing an exceptional experience for our clients.”

“Brandon Hall Group Excellence Awards in 2021 provide much-needed and well deserved recognition to organizations that went above and beyond to support their stakeholders during the unprecedented disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Brandon Hall Group COO and leader of the HCM Excellence Awards Program Rachel Cooke. “The awards provide validation of best practices in all areas of HCM at a time when they have never been more important to employers, employees and customers.”

Recently Valet Living’s Talent team added another layer to its talent management strategy by creating a comprehensive talent book identifying high potential associates across the organization.  Those identified associates were then invited to participate in the creation of personalized development plans focused on readying them for promotion.  Valet Living believes that this investment positions them well to win in the war for top talent currently impacting so many employers.

“The program on which we partnered with Valet Living to create and execute helped them attract and retain the right talent, thereby elevating engagement and performance across their organization,” said Greg Harris, co-founder and chief executive officer at Quantum Workplace. “We are honored Valet Living’s hard work and dedication were recognized by The Brandon Hall Group in this prestigious competition.”

Winning organizations in all categories demonstrated a people-centric approach while driving superior business results under challenging and unprecedented conditions.  For more information about Valet Living please visit www.ValetLiving.com.  For more information about the 2021 Brandon Hall Group Human Capital Management (HCM) Excellence Awards and to view the complete list of winners, visit Brandon Hall Group online.
