Additional Culture Details

Culture is held in high regard at LaSalle Network. We consider ourselves experts in the matter so we launched a culture consulting practice, Culture 20/20, to help our clients improve their culture. Our CEO, Tom Gimbel, cared about culture before it became a buzzword. LaSalle’s culture is one that develops employees both professionally and personally to achieve career success, all while having fun.

LaSalle focuses on training and developing employees with its award-winning training and development program, to celebrating all wins – big or small. Employees are rewarded with company-wide awards (both culture-based as well as production-based awards), company-wide incentive trips and Rebirthdays.

Our culture is special, and it’s real. We work hard, we laugh a lot and we succeed as a team. Our leadership team is actively involved, and they take the time to get to know all of our staff. With an open office, managers sit in the same pod as their team, and they jump in to help when needed. We facilitate a culture of constant learning and growing, and there is ample room for our employees to grow.

As it pertains specifically to COVID-19, no business was prepared for the pandemic – from the economic toll to the emotional toll. It was new to every leader in America – leading a company through a global health crisis. What it did do was quickly separate the organizations that for so long mistaken culture for perks...the companies who thought being a company that cares meant having kegs in the office, ping pong tables, game rooms, catered in lunches, whereas, the companies that understood the true meaning of culture far before COVID-19, were the companies that prioritized connection to leadership, connection to employees, empathy for staff and one another, accountability, training and development, employee safety, commitment to staff, philanthropy and giving back. That's what LaSalle Network has always been about and that’s what the leadership team carried through when leadership instituted a stay-at-home mandate a week before the states did. Our leadership team were COMMITTED to employee safety, wellbeing and continuing to do what they’ve always done to foster a company that cares...genuinely cares. When you have a company culture like LaSalle’s, it was not hard to translate who we are, our care for each other and our mission virtually because it wasn’t about the flashy perks that bonded us.

It was our connection to one another. Our relationships. Our training and development. That’s what keeps LaSallians coming back and when you have something real and authentic, it doesn’t matter the space you’re in – a flashy office space or in your studio apartment for 12+ weeks – LaSalle's bond and connection has sustained through quarantine, and the business decisions Tom Gimbel, LaSalle Network Founder & CEO, has made have been made to protect the employees. He didn’t lay off a single employee, and to prevent doing layoffs, he has given up his salary since February and will continue to until the economy recovers, and he also asked Directors and above to take a 15% salary cut. He said if revenues do not grow at the end of the year but every LaSallian is employed, this will be a successful year. He is looking at the collection calls were making to clients to collect payment and making personal calls to those he know cannot afford it – that literally if they make that payment their company will go out of business, and he says let's make it an IOU and revisit this payment when times are better for you. He understands that the dollar amount to what this small business owes LaSalle is nothing compared to the hard conversations that business owner has to have as he lays off his staff to stay afloat. Our leader is one who always led with his full heart and has always had empathy for all those in the LaSalle network – from our staff to our clients to our vendors.

Tom and the leadership team know that every employee is handling this differently – they have empathy for employees across the board – from those working in small studio apartments with a place full of roommates, to employees who have had family or friends laid off or furloughed, to employees who have lost family or friends due to the virus, to those who have had monumental events forced to be moved and postponed, to parents who suddenly have to be full time employees, full time parents and full time educators if doing e-learning. These are all challenges our leadership team addresses with the company constantly. We’ve included a list of things our company has done virtually over the last 12 weeks that outlines everything from a culture perspective that makes the case as to why LaSalle Network continues to be a company that cares – from the daily video town halls our CEO hosted since the start of quarantine, to reminding employees of the health benefits they have access to/take advantage of, to the community service of sewing masks and writing letters to elderly people in nursing homes to the fun events we’ve done virtually to stay connected and to the support our leadership team has provided each and every LaSallian – as always, they’ve had “an open door” literally 24/7 with our CEO taking calls from restless employees as late as 11pm who had concerns, thoughts and questions they wanted to talk about.
