Praxis History and Values

Praxis Consulting Group, Inc. was founded in Philadelphia in 1995 by two of our principals, Ginny Vanderslice and Alex Moss.

Initially we provided communication, training and organizational development services primarily to employee-owned companies. While we continue to work extensively with employee-owned companies, our practice has expanded to include work with nonprofits, socially responsible businesses and other organizations interested in developing workplace cultures that maximize employee engagement and responsibility. With the addition of consultants, Praxis has broadened its services to include: leadership development, coaching, union-management partnerships, process improvement strategies, strategic planning, governance, and conflict management.

Over the past fifteen years, Praxis has grown to include ten staff members, who together have backgrounds in a range of disciplines, including: organizational development, social psychology, adult education, business management, and finance.

We believe in the importance of giving back to the community. We do this by donating a portion of our profits each year to a selected nonprofit organization. We also provide some services on a pro bono basis to organizations in need, and we encourage staff to become actively involved in community organizations. In 2007, Praxis became a founding B Corporation, one of hundreds of companies across the country whose commitment to Triple Bottom line values (people, planet, and profits) is recognized via a stringent, third-party administered certification process.
