THE FIRST SUN ADVANTAGE  
SEASONED PROFESSIONALS WITH BROAD EXPERTISE
First Sun’s consultants have an average of 19 years experience helping business owners, CEOs and senior management resolve both routine and critical personnel concerns.   We are familiar with the cultural, economic and environmental influences that impact organizations in our region.  Over the years, each of our consultants has had the privilege to address a wide range of organizational concerns.  As a team we leverage our collective talents to create effective solutions for our customers.

A SINGLE SOURCE FOR COMPREHENSIVE PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
In addition to EAP, First Sun offers organizational consultation, compliance training, leadership development, coaching and many other training programs.  There are times, however, when customer concerns can best be addressed through services from corporate attorneys, career development professionals, or others.  For example, when we help an organization establish a drug free workplace program, we frequently work with corporate attorneys to assure the legal soundness of the DFWP policy.  We may also recommend drug testing options and resources.  We blend these services into an overall implementation plan that includes training for the management team and educational programs throughout the organization.  The First Sun team maintains relationships like these so we can respond to customer needs with a full complement of professional services.

A PARTNERSHIP IN DEVELOPING SUCCESSFUL STRATEGIES
Strategies that work for one organization may not work for another even when the concerns are the same.  While some organizations with customer service problems see results from direct staff training, others may require leadership development and systemic changes.  The best solutions capitalize on an organization’s existing strengths and resources to bring about specific results.  That’s why partnership with senior management is essential.  By working together to understand concerns and goals we build from areas of strength and create success.  

RESULTS THAT IMPACT THE BOTTOM LINE AND LEAD TO LASTING CHANGE
Many organizational leaders call us to provide stress management training programs for workers.  Our stress management product is effective because it is designed to fit the unique work environment of each client.  However, in our consultation we often identify additional issues related to the original concerns such as high levels of absenteeism, workplace safety issues and low morale which contribute to stress in the workforce.  In partnership with our customer we then design strategies to resolve these issues which alleviate stress and simultaneously reduce absenteeism and improve productivity and morale – all while respecting the budgets of our customer partners.   When designing solution strategies, we define success in terms of measurable results and we follow up as needed to guide people at all levels through various stages of change and growth.  Our process of developing measurable results and following through to assure success means that our customers see a meaningful impact on the bottom line.
