Everywhere we turn these days, it seems the topic of culture is staring us in the face, forcing us to consider: what exactly is culture and why does it matter?

When it comes to understanding the dynamics of a company’s culture it can be helpful to explore how others in your organization may be experiencing your culture.  In this interactive session we will explore the topic of workplace culture through the various stakeholder perspectives: millennials, leadership, organizational strategy, and change management. Participants will have opportunities to weigh in on key topics to help guide the conversation to better understand what culture looks like through someone else’s vantage point. 

In this session we will explore:

  • How organizational values and priorities can influence a company’s approach to culture 
  • The lens various internal stakeholders may be looking through to match culture fit to their beliefs and needs
  • Considerations for how to create and sustain a culture to best serve the expectations of various audience type
