Conscious Culture In Action
Tuesday, February 1st12pm PT / 3pm ET
A company’s culture can be its single most important asset, or biggest liability, especially in a competitive job market. Conscious businesses that intentionally develop a culture that promotes their values and purpose can see impacts on their success in hiring, retention, and even their bottom line.
Mike Corkery, President and CEO of Deltek, and Catherine Allen, Co-founder and CEO of AO People Partners, will join us from our Washington, D.C. Chapter to discuss how you can nurture Conscious Culture within your workplace by embedding values such as caring, integrity, and learning at the core of how your business operates. Mike and Catherine will discuss how Deltek competes with purpose by building a culture with a focus on people, customers, and growth.
Whether you are just starting your conscious journey or are looking to evolve an existing practice, our Four Tenets In Action series will provide you with practical advice and tools from our chapter communities to help you take that next step.
