At PEER 1 Hosting, we’re all about two things, Ping & People. They’re both equally as important. I’m Sheila Bouman, Chief People and Performance Officer at PEER 1 Hosting and I focus on the relationship between people, organization development and business strategy.
I don’t come from the typical HR background. I started my career as a high school teacher and my work over the past 25 years has been focused on being really curious about what makes people great, what needs to be removed or provided so people can truly unleash their talent. I can see the goodness and the talent in just about everybody and I feel excitement when attempting to figure out how to either awaken or unleash it.
After 15 years as an organization development consultant, I joined PEER 1 Hosting. This rapidly growing company is helping to create the most human experience on the web. We’re a Vancouver-based company that has grown into one of the world's premier hosting companies and I’m proud to be a part of that.
PEER 1 Hosting has a vision to be the most human company on the web, a place where our customers would want to work. Although we’re operating in the often distant technology sector, we are 100 percent focused on what makes our people and our customers thrive. We care about them in ways that typical companies don’t, and that is what makes us amazing and desirable. My vision is global, but through humanism, not human resource.
Before joining PEER 1 Hosting, I co-founded Navigo, where my team helped leaders plan and implement complex changes that aligned the contribution of people to where the leaders wanted to take the company. Navigo's talented consultants are experts in Strategic planning, leadership development, engagement and change management.
I live by the promise that PEER 1 Hosting is trying to make a difference to the lives of its customers. We say it all the time, it’s not about being the biggest, it’s about being the best.
