Culture First, Profits to Follow
Monday, April 30 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Calgary
Putting culture first means turning traditional strategy conversations upside down. Instead of concentrating first on the end result (profits) a culture first company focuses first on employees, as the driver of that performance.
In this session we will discuss the:
- ROI of creating a ‘Culture First’ organization
- Six Components of Culture
- How to get started today
