Melissa Porterfield has received many accolades in the past few years, as a woman entrepreneur and a key influencer. She has also become an in-demand speaker, particularly at conferences oriented to Human Resource professionals. Since her business name Silk Mountain is derived from an ancestral name, people do not immediately associate it with its suite of solutions--all aimed at making work feel, well, less like work. Melissa consults with clients in different capacities, helping them to establish and refine their company culture, and then leverage it to attract, retain, and engage the workforce.
Porterfield believes a company’s culture stems from leadership, and their ability to walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk. She dedicates her time to assessing leadership’s commitment to the culture. She also supports businesses through Mergers & Acquisitions, helping identify aspects of the old and new, and what the blended culture should ideally be. Recently she has been focusing on workplace strategy,. Ms. Porterfield is also getting more involved with women-owned businesses helping them institute various human resource related processes, and delights in supporting a start-up or helping another woman entrepreneur become a success story.
Silk Mountain was launched after Melissa left a long and varied career in Human Resources that included employee relations, benefits, recruiting, and wage and compensation. She well understands any snags that a company might confront. By facilitating the improvement of workplaces, she not only makes a difference for their people, she impacts the overall success and bottom line of the company itself.
