#WorkTrends Preview: The Culture Engine

#WorkTrends Preview: The Culture Engine

Culture – we all talk about its importance, but yet companies continue to struggle to create and nurture a positive culture in the office. To understand the issues that most leaders are having with culture, we need to go back to the basics.

The foundation of an organization’s culture is their values, but the challenge is some leaders do not pay attention to the health of their work culture. It’s more and more rare for leaders to be held accountable for the quality of their work environment or for happy, engaged, and productive employees. Employees are happiest and engaged when treated with trust, respect, and dignity and in return, brands will receive higher levels of productivity.

On Wednesday, August 30, 2017, from 1 – 2 pm EST, #WorkTrends guest host Mark Babbitt, CEO and Founder of YouTern, and his guest Chris Edmonds, founder of The Purposeful Culture Group will be discussing the purpose and value of well-designed cultures in the workplace and the myriad benefits brands can garner from having engaged employees.
