HR Lunch Bunch: Conscious Company Culture

Famous business strategist, Peter Drucker, once said “Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”

So often businesses focus more intently on building sound strategy—plans, policies, procedures—and allow the culture building to just sort of happen. Unfortunately, culture is forming whether we design it or not. But without the conscious creation of our ideal culture, we get what we get. This approach often leads to disunity, feelings of burnout, disintegration, under-appreciated or under-motivated team members and beyond.

When we lean into conscious culture building, we increase employee engagement, attract employees that align with our values (and see attrition of those that do not), seamlessly align effort at all levels of the organization (eliminating rogue projects and personalities), and increase productivity and results. In short, culture is the limitless fuel to an organization’s strategy.

In this session, Marjorie will deliver tips, tools, and ideas that your organization can implement immediately to consciously build your company culture around an aligned set of values.

Guest: Marjorie Dudley, CSP, Southwestern Consulting

Mental Health is a necessity in today’s productive workplace. There is so much for HR to consider in the ever-changing environment.

HR Lunch Bunch: Eating the Elephant of the Employee Experience

When you think of a holistic view of employee experience — defined by the perception of the quality of all the experiences we collect at work — changing employees’ perceptions can feel like something too enormous to tackle. But as the wise Desmond Tutu once said, “There is only one way to eat an elephant: a bite at a time.” Where do you take the first bite in changing the employee experience in your organization, though?

During this conversation, we’ll discuss:

  • A framework for addressing employee experience without feeling overwhelmed;
  • The connection between EX to other critical business initiatives like CX and corporate performance;
  • How to avoid the two biggest mistakes when taking on employee experience;

Guest: Lance Haun, VP of Market Insights; The Starr Conspiracy
