IH Services fosters a culture where everyone strives to do their best and feel great about doing it.
IH Services believes that most people want to be a part of something special… something that is more than just showing up, clocking in and out, and going home.
IH Services accomplishes this through a process we call “Purposeful Engagement” which consists of 5 simple principles:
- Make sure they know that we care about them.
- Give them a safe environment to work in.
- Ask them more often than tell them.

- Celebrate their successes.
