Oct 2016 #CultureChat: The Role of Transparency in Culture
October 23, 2016
Many would agree that a transparent culture is a good thing in general, but when the rubber meets the road, how transparent are we willing to be--or even should we be. We'll tackle this in this month's #CultureChat on Twitter. Join us 10/27/16 at 1pm ET.
Millennials are the largest generation in the history of the United States--and half of them aren’t even in the workforce yet. That means the companies that figure out how to effectively engage this generation are going to gain a significant competitive advantage in the years to come, in the form of productivity gains, lower turnover, and more innovation. But this is not about foosball tables and gourmet cafeterias. It’s about a new approach to the workplace that makes more sense to this generation. In this webinar, Millennial and culture experts Jamie Notter and Maddie Grant will explore research from their book, When Millennials Take Over, and identify specific internal capacities that companies must develop to successfully engage Millennials. They’ll also reveal some ways that you can determine just how compatible your company’s culture is with this new generation and how that can unlock potential for growth.
Everyone says they want to be agile, but do you truly understand what's holding you back? Unless you do that hard work, you'll be wasting money on all those Who Moved My Cheese books. Some of the aggregate data we're collecting in the Workplace Genome is shining an interesting light on this conversation.
