Dr. Francescutti is now offering an exclusive opportunity to organizations who
want to enhance and improve their culture. Introducing
Inspired by the success of The Humanity of it All Experience,
and Dr. Francescutti's vast history of mentorship and advisory to a variety of industry sectors on safety culture, communications, governance,
and personal health, this annualized program involves the implementation of an aggressive action plan
and proprietary methods where
Dr. Francescutti and his team work directly with company managers, HSE
personnel, and employees to
improve the organization's culture. Benefits of the program are
immediate and are measured using a series of indicators including employee
attitude and adoption metrics, safety trends and figures (both industry and
company-specific statistics), and employee attendance and performance measures.
The program addresses a number of
core issues that are of major concern in
organizations of any size or age. When not addressed appropriately,
there is an inevitable negative result on a company's safety record, worker
performance, and bottom line. These issues include, but are not limited
- Safety Culture in the Workplace
- Leadership & Communications
- Change Management
- Fatigue in the Workplace
- Substance Abuse
- Mental Illness
Depending on the organization's specific goals and objectives and the current
state of culture, more immersive training and mentorship in any of the core
topics listed above is available. These optional deep-dive modules will be
provided at additional cost and include workshops, seminars, and other
interactive sessions led by experts in the field.
A brief overview of the program phases are described below.
Before a customized action plan is developed, Dr. Francescutti and his team
execute a variety of mechanisms to identify the current state of the
organization's culture. A series of interviews and surveys are conducted with
managers, HSE personnel, and various staff.
Once the initial research and survey phase is completed, the results are
populated into a comprehensive set of proprietary metrics. These metrics
are used throughout the engagement to evaluate progress.
Once the resulting dataset from the initial research efforts are analyzed and studied, Dr.
Francescutti and his team work with managers and HSE personnel to develop
and objectives that contribute to the organization's overall requirements and
A customized action plan is developed and presented to company management.
The plan serves to address any gaps identified during the research phase so that
the company is successful in meeting its goals.
The action plan's components cannot be generalized, as the very nature of the
plan is custom-tailored to suit the specific organization, its current state, as
well as its capabilities and constraints.
In essence, personnel are guided by the action plan and supported by
ongoing mentorship by Dr. Francescutti and his team throughout the execution of
The action plan is developed to incorporate flexibility. As scenarios or
objectives change, the action plan is modified to accomodate these changes as
best as possible.
Reviews are conducted each quarter, where Dr. Francescutti's team meets with
company managers and HSE personnel to discuss progress and required efforts in
the upcoming quarter.
At the end of the year, Dr. Francescutti re-interviews HSE staff, managers, and
employees, and re-evaluates the organization according to the same baseline metrics that were
months earlier. The results are compiled and reported back to organization
management, along with any further recommendations.
Seminars are provided to company staff by Dr. Francescutti.

Aside from interaction with Dr. Francescutti during research and follow-up
activities, employees are able to conveniently interact with Lou
via a personalized online portal. From webinars, newsletters, and archived media,
to Lou's Blog and methods for direct communication, Dr. Francescutti's

The Excellence Program was inspired mainly by existing organizations
whose corporate and safety cultures were suffering, resulting in poor safety
records and employee attitudes. Corporations have painfully realized that
reacting to this dangerous state after it has already diseased the organization
is not only more expensive, but it puts at risk human health and corporate
image. And the most frustrating part is that it is completely preventable.
The Excellence Program can bring measurable benefit to an organization
in any stage. For instance, in a more mature organization we are able to
identify the state of culture and measure it against the goals and objectives of
the organization, interact with employees, and develop an action plan to close
any gaps. In a newer organization, a program like this would certainly set the
foundation for healthy culture development.
Companies actively engaged in the program are authorized to use a unique emblem in various company collateral and on their website to
identify their active status in the program.
The Excellence Program requires intensive involvement by Dr.
Francescutti. For this reason, only a limited
number of organizations will be accepted. Interested organizations are encouraged to
identify their interest as early as possible by contacting Dr. Francescutti
