Total Resource Management Brings Work-Life Balance to Its Consultants

Employees Embrace the Unique Corporate Culture and Benefits Package

ALEXANDRIA, VA--(Marketwire - November 14, 2008) - Total Resource Management, Inc. (TRM) is made up of consultants with deep industry experience and sharp technologists that know how to help clients leverage their investments in IT to squeeze more return from their assets and better manage operations. Given the current financial crisis and the cut-backs that many asset-intensive organizations are feeling these days, this powerful combination is in high demand. TRM continues to add and retain employees to meet this demand by offering a benefits package and unique corporate culture that focuses on work-life balance and rewards for performance.

Since its beginning, TRM has offered all full-time employees 100% paid medical insurance, including family coverage. "As a service business that brings to the market the expertise of our people, we know that this benefit, especially for families, goes a long way towards their personal financial stability and our employee retention," commented Garner Bennett, CEO. TRM's benefits package averages close to 60% above an employee's salary -- much more than the standard.

The burnout rate for consultants in this industry tends to be very high, so TRM focuses on work-life balance -- including flex-time, telecommuting opportunities, and encourages career growth and paths that can go to the top or take alternative routes. TRM maintains a consultancy model where consultants' travel requirements average 50% to 60% below the industry standard. This is made possible by employing a variety of methods including long-term, on-site client engagements; locating offices near concentrations of clients; remote access and telecommuting.

Almost a full 20% of TRM's workforce is made up of returning employees who recognized the value of TRM's corporate culture and employee benefits.

This year, TRM is focusing on a Great Places to Work® initiative. In addition to an already established bonus program, TRM will incorporate formal leadership training, career-pathing and employee recognition initiatives.

TRM's executive team recognizes that company's true strength in the market is its people. In the past year, TRM has doubled its client base and continues to recruit talented employees to join its team and learn the TRM project methodology. "We are always looking for entry-level employees that can quickly learn our business and senior experts in the enterprise asset management field, including IBM Maximo® Asset Management, IT Asset Management, SAP or Lawson experts; top-notch computer programmers; and IT specialists," added Bennett.
