All year we’ve been collecting nominations for our first-ever TrEAT Award, designed to honor the RoseRyan consultant who best represents our values of trustworthy, excel, advocate and team throughout the year, with clients and with colleagues, in ways big and small.

Lisa Thomas, this year’s TrEAT honoree, embodies so many of these qualities we considered giving her the award in duplicate. Lisa excels at her work and gamely ventures outside her comfort zone to learn new skills and tackle stretch assignments. A team member-and-a-half, she forges the same strong, collegial relationships with clients that she builds inside RoseRyan, where she is a frequent instigator of social activities.

Lisa pitches in for more than the fun stuff. She never shies away from the harder work of culture-building, for example, honest communication about difficult issues. It takes courage to speak up and ask the tough questions, and Lisa has both the moxie and the finesse to do it. Congrats, Lisa, and thank you for living our values every day.
