New PeopleOps Initiatives

At rater8, we strive to support our employees so they, in turn, can support our clients. In addition to rebranding from HR to PeopleOps in 2023, our mighty PeopleOps department set several new employee-focused initiatives into motion.

Bee the Change

This year, rater8ers had the opportunity to “bee” the change in their communities. Each employee was given eight hours of volunteer time off (VTO) during National Volunteer Month in April.

With employees across the country, our hive was able to volunteer with several fantastic organizations, including:

  • Feeding Tampa Bay
  • Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission
  • Habitat for Humanity ReStore
  • Kotor Kitties
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Start Lighthouse
  • The City of West Palm Beach
  • The Food Brigade

New Hire Buddy Program

Another development in the PeopleOps realm was the launch of the New Hire Buddy Program, an onboarding experience aimed at fostering a culture of collaboration, support, and growth within our hive.

This program pairs seasoned rater8ers with “new-bees,” creating a relationship focused on support and camaraderie during the first 30 days. The purpose is simple and effective: ensure each newcomer not only feels welcomed, but is also empowered to thrive in their new role!

3rd Annual IRL

rater8ers came together from all over the country for our biggest and best “in real life” event in the fall. Traveling a combined 36,660 miles to reach Woodloch Resort in Pennsylvania, the hive enjoyed two days of team-building and camaraderie during the third annual IRL.

Looking ahead to 2024, we anticipate another year of innovation and pushing the boundaries of what it means to be the leader in healthcare reputation management. Here’s to another year of exciting new features, strengthened partnerships, and delivering stellar experiences to our clients!
