The Culture Rebelution: Winning the War on Talent with a ‘Great Place to Work’ Organizational Culture

How does an organization become a great place to work? Many companies aspire to that, but few have clarity around all the work that needs to be done to make it a reality.

For the last few years, my HR strategy has been a pretty simple one: create a Great Place to Work Culture where people want to come to work every day. It is much easier said than done. It takes a lot of work and commitment from both the leadership team and the employees to make the necessary changes, which can be painful.

In this session you will:

  • Understand the keys to building a Great Place to Work Culture

  • Understand what the responsibilities are from Managers and for Employees

  • Get a clear picture of where to start your Culture journey

  • Understand how Change Management is the key to a sustainable Great Place to Work Culture

[INTERACTIVE PANEL] 

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in a Remote World

Many organizations now recognize how important diversity, equity & inclusion initiatives are to their workforce, corporate culture and business success. The pandemic may have complicated organizational DE&I initiatives, but leaders must continue to play a pivotal role in keeping these initiatives on the hearts, minds and agendas of their organization—especially in this new work paradigm.

 

In this interactive session lead by Thoughtexchange Chief People Officer Dessalen Wood, we will hear from other HR leaders and explore the following questions:

  • Where does DE&I fit into dealing with a global pandemic?

  • How do organizations link DE&I initiatives to remote workers?

  • How can remote workers contribute to DE&I programming?

  • Are we creating cultures that embrace diverse people who are also remote?

Engaging Employees Through Dialogue

Engagement is a signal of discretionary effort, which is essential for high performance. So how do you get employees to "choose" to give you their best efforts? With great dialogue! Dialogue is a reciprocal conversation about what work is important and how to do great work. In this session we'll ground our discussion in the research of intrinsic motivation and explore best practices for developing dialogue skills in managers as the key drivers of dialogue as a company capability.
