TiER1 Performance activates strategy through people by bringing a holistic, people-centered approach with deep expertise in learning and performance. When mindsets, processes, skill, or culture (to name a few) get in the way of performance, they partner to custom-craft performance experiences that engage and empower employees to embrace change, innovate, transform, and bring to life an organization’s mission and vision. TiER1’s mission is to improve organizations through the performance of people to build a better world. They wake up every morning ready to tackle big challenges, so that more people can do their best work. When employees contribute more, stretch their talents, and free themselves of workplace limits, a remarkable thing happens: they become happier and more fulfilled and their organizations perform better. All of that helps them reduce stress, create healthier relationships, and simply find more joy—ultimately impacting the communities around them. A virtuous cycle. The B Corp certification is emblematic of our belief that businesses exist to serve society as a whole. Headquartered in Covington, KY, TiER1 Performan has teams in Atlanta, Chicago, Cincinnati, Denver, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, and Washington, DC.
