HCIM Colleagues meet via Web Conference to Discuss Strategic Planning

As part of HCIM’s ongoing effort to maintain an open line of communication with its Colleagues, HCIM Colleagues met on Friday, September 17, 2010, to discuss HCIM’s current strategic plan.  The meeting was facilitated by Amy Sipe, Client Services Professional Consultant, and Gregory Merica, Director of Product Management Integration. The Online Colleague Meeting (OCM) allowed the Colleagues to review the material presented and participate in the discussions and planning.

Michael Wilson, President and CEO of HCIM, opened the meeting by talking about HCIM’s 5-year plan, including plans for strategic business developments.  With the promotion of Jeffrey Hall to EVP of Client Services, the effected changes to the HCIM organization chart and approval matrix were also reviewed and discussed.  In addition, Colleagues reviewed the current Strategic Plan, and provided updates on several key objectives.

HCIM routinely encourages Colleagues to review the quarterly financial reports, and Colleagues are sent a copy of the Strategic Financial Reserves Measurements report each month for review and comment.  During the web conference, Jeffrey Hall, EVP of Client Services, discussed HCIM’s current financial status, and indicated that HCIM has seen significant increases in net income over the last 12 months.  After the financial review, each Business Unit Director was asked to provide a list of their current action items, which highlighted each unit’s top priorities for the next 30 days.

The meeting ended with an invitation to all Colleagues to express their interest in topics for future meetings.  HCIM strongly feels that these meetings should be forward-focused and should center on items that are most important to its Colleagues.

The next face-to-face All Colleague Meeting (ACM) will be held in Concord, Calif. on November 5, 2010.
