Culture and Engagement: A Beneficial Cycle


Presenters: Brenton Williamson, BambooHR; and Catherine Spence, Pomello

Original program date: May 2017 (program no longer available)

Program length: 60 minutes

It’s a chicken-and-egg question: Which comes first, engagement or culture? We know that we want a good company culture with engaged employees. To achieve this goal, it takes concerted attention and effort on both topics.

In this program, Brenton Williamson from BambooHR and Catherine Spence from Pomello will explore the definitions of employee engagement and culture. You’ll learn the difference between home-grown culture and imported culture. You’ll learn how consistent sincerity is the key to sustaining employee engagement. And you’ll learn how to take stock of your current levels of engagement and culture and correct course if necessary.

It takes more than just words on a projector or money in a budget to create engagement and culture. But as you optimize this cycle, you create long-lasting competitive advantages for your organization -- advantages that can shape your future.
