Our Work Culture
RAMP’s Results Only Work Environment (ROWE) creates an outcome oriented culture which removes typical work restraints and provides staff full autonomy as drivers of their own work results. This allows individuals to use the talents and passions they possess to achieve the highest level of expectations for the organization in alignment with the independent living philosophy. Our ROWE culture provides staff with 100% Autonomy and expects 100% Accountability.
All RAMP employees are expected to meet our core Standards of Excellence. Even with a ROWE centered culture, our mission and services are our number one priority. Our focus is on creating a high level of employee engagement which will result in employees who commit to bringing RAMP’s culture, mission, vision and values to life.
Work Life Balance
RAMP is focused on retaining compassionate, hard-working employees and fostering an environment that allows for optimum employee productivity all while being sensitive to the need for work/life balance. It is up to each employee, in collaboration with their Manager, to determine the best way to meet results. This decision will differ based on the role and the team, but it is up to each employee to determine how and where their results will be met. Under ROWE, employees must choose how many hours they need to work on any given day in order to meet their results. Sometimes employees may opt to work more hours one day and less hours another day. This balance is one of the benefits of ROWE.
How Does RAMP Make an Impact
We Educate RAMP exists to EDUCATE individuals with disabilities about their opportunities for a fully integrated, barrier free life as well as the laws and rights that protect them in their quest for that life.
We Elevate It is our expectation that once educated, individuals will strive to ELEVATE their lives to the level that they desire.
We Infiltrate Once elevated and fully integrated into society, we believe individuals with disabilities will INFILTRATE and become the educators and advocates for others, thus becoming part of the cycle and the solution for future generations.
