Prairie Meadows

Prairie Meadows, an award-winning non-profit entertainment venue with over 1,400 employees, used the Excellence with Integrity process to guide their organizational training efforts. This multi-year initiative started with assessment of over 300 managers. CEEA-Workplace assessment results guided the development of customized training focused on communication, collaboration and teamwork for delivery to over 1,400 employees. Today The Ray Center helps facilitate Prairie Meadows University, a professional-development series designed to train future leaders of the company.

 Through our partnership with the Institute for Excellence & Ethics and The Ray Center at Drake University, we have built bench-strength within our management team to aid in our succession planning efforts. We have also re-enforced the principles of guest service with our front-line employees to ensure the continued success of our organization.

Making this investment in our employees has allowed us to reap immediate benefits through morale, retention and skill development, and will continue to have a positive impact on the future of our organization.
