The management team
The Third Estimate inspires all types of workers but is most proud of its current leadership staff. There is social and personal identification amongst members while achieving our organization’s mission and goals. The team has created an apparent positive influence on our organization and employees’ success.
Ninety percent of the staff is female managed. Tara’s leadership has transformed the industry by turning that old-school view into something new and inviting for all audiences. She believes in the power and the possibility of establishing women leaders in the industry.
Our company focuses on acquiring the most qualified people. And in this case, it is a lot of women in an industry that used to be primarily dominated by men. So, as a result, we have less gender discrimination in recruitment, promotion, and retention.
As mothers and caregivers, there is genuine passion, enthusiasm and capability to take command of a situation. Our leadership team can make bold and wise decisions that promote a team environment and are less authoritative. There is a family-like feel and more cooperation at The Third Estimate.
With 90 percent of global companies having at least one woman in senior management in 2021, it is no wonder women are making a move in male-dominated trades. The Third Estimate is proud that it will help to move the needle on touching all audiences and creating all types of work environments in organizations.
