    Expanding Flexibility with New Life-Work Solutions!

    Previously, when employees were asked what sets DHG apart, one of the overwhelming responses was flexibility. “Life beyond numbers” has always been a priority for the firm, but now, more than ever, flexibility is key amidst a global pandemic. Katrina Thompson, Director of HR, joins the Life at DHG Podcast to discuss the recently launched Life-Work Solutions Suite, which increases flexibility with new resources and offerings to benefit all employees.
     
    DHG is continually expanding flexibility to enhance the lives of our people while managing engagement, productivity, profitability and the client experience.

    DHG’s Change Hub Presents: How Trey Ackerman Leads Through Immense Change

    DHG’s Change Hub Presents: How Trey Ackerman Leads Through Immense Change

    DHG Change Hub Presents: Change Makers 
    Over the past six weeks we have all flexed our change muscle.  No two days have been the same.  As part of our Change Makers podcast series, an extension of our Change Hub communications, we have a special podcast series to highlight some of our change makers who lead the way both inside and outside of the firm.
    The DHG Change Hub manages the pace, cadence, communications and implementation of change at DHG. This podcast series puts a spotlight on individuals who have taken change leadership to the next level; those who believe that not only can we change for the good personally and professionally but perhaps, just perhaps, we may create a change in the communities and the world we live in. These bold souls are doing amazing things to be the change we want to see in the world. They believe that – We can do anything! These leaders exemplify the courage to embrace change, both inside and outside of DHG.
    Trey Ackerman joined us just prior to the COVID-19 outbreak and we are excited to bring him back to share how he is leading through this time of intense and immense change.

    Stories of Hope: Valerie Gibson Emerges Through Life Changes with Hope

    Valerie Gibson is an administrative professional in the DHG Nashville office.  She experienced multiple strokes and two life changing brain surgeries in 2016.  Valerie shares her story and how she emerged through a very difficult time by focusing on hope.
    Valerie relied on her faith and family to get through her surgeries and recovery. She also found that humor played a role in helping her remain optimistic and in processing what she was going through. Learning that she could not control the situation was important to Valerie. She took time to grieve what her life was prior to the changes and pressed on with the help of friends, family and a focus on what she needed to do to recover.
    As we all face changes and difficult times with the impact of COVID-19, we can learn from Valerie’s story of hope. Listen to learn more.

    Kate Stewart
    Kate Stewart was born with juvenile diabetes.  If you have ever met Kate, you know that she, most definitely, hasn’t let that slow her down.  As the leader of operations for DHG’s Tax Practice and a champion for change, she was instrumental in helping us navigate 2019 tax reform while simultaneously implementing a new software platform. But that’s not all, she is a devoted mother and wife and self-described “favorite daughter.” On top of all of that, Kate is a major champion for change in the community, raising thousands of dollars each year to fund education and research around juvenile diabetes.  Kate led the JDRF Fund Raiser for 2019 with the same determination, passion and creativity she is famous for at DHG. The results were nothing short of amazing!
