Empowering Organizations to Succeed through People

McDermott Associates founder and chief executive Don McDermott was interviewed in Advisors Magazine, a publication for middle market companies that provides in-depth analyses of successful corporate and financial executives and covers topical news events.

“Our mission at D.G. McDermott Associates is to help organizations succeed through people,” says McDermott. Human beings all want the same thing: recognition. That’s what motivates them.”

The challenge is for each organization to identify the unique structure, culture, processes, and policies which will enable and motivate its employees.
