The benefit of working with Aureon has led to many improvements for IISC. Most importantly, it’s allowed them to focus on other aspects of their organization, such as special projects, programs, training, and growing their membership.
“If we were consumed by HR and technology issues every day, we wouldn’t have time to work on customer-focused initiatives, such as bringing in a new simulator for our trainings and demonstrations,” explained Lathrop.
IISC has also seen the benefit of using a single provider, especially when they moved to a new building in September 2016.
“Having one provider for internet, voice, and IT creates a more seamless experience,” said Lathrop. “This was extremely helpful during a recent office move.”
Overall, using Aureon’s HR and technology solutions has saved IISC valuable time, which is put toward their mission of helping organizations and industries become safer.
“Leveraging Aureon’s services frees us up to focus on projects that benefit the community,” said Lathrop. For example, IISC developed a program with Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) to create a class about the essentials of safety. The program ran for five months, and helped people with little safety experience learn the basics of a safety program.
IISC has also focused on enhancing their video streaming platform, which is now available to all their members.
“The best part of my job is helping people,” explained Lathrop. “I like to see people improve their performance and reduce the number of injuries. Aureon has allowed me to focus solely on making that happen.”
IISC has come to realize the importance of being able to grow their business and not worry about all the other “behind-the-scenes” functions.
“Aureon is essential to helping us grow and fulfill our mission,” said Lathrop.
