What are your business's core values, goals, and overall mission?
Benchmark Business Resources believes in the value and opportunity small business brings to a community. We have lived in the Hampton Roads Community our whole life and knowing the time and energy it takes to have a successful business, we have made it a priority to use our skills to support businesses that are growing and know they need help.
Our business is about removing obstacles and creating balance which leads to sustainable growth for every business we help. We work with business owners and their staff to ultimately create a positive, engaging work environment through coaching, strategic planning, and people development.
Share some unique facts and business history? What makes your business stand out?
We partner with our clients to help them determine where they want to go, what results they want to achieve and how they’re going to get there. We help clients to develop and manage strategic, cultural, and structural changes within their business with a strong action plan. By working together, we can provide personalized processes and support materials that help turn goals into reality.
We also help businesses align their plan, people, and systems in order to gain a competitive edge. Coaching offers direction and assistance, but the business owner retains freedom of choice. He/she is responsible for discovering the self-knowledge that forms the foundation for continued growth. The business owner can freely confide in the coach because the coach has no internal links with the company.
