Workforce of the Future: Building a Resilient Corporate Culture

Scroll down

Session Description

The workforce of today is more focused on ethics, values, and corporate responsibility than ever before. And the recent spate of corporate scandals vividly illustrates the limitations of compliance processes and the need for business leaders to focus on values and corporate culture. But, changing culture can be a challenge, as it touches every part of the business. Resilient cultures take time to build and develop, but the rewards for a company are enormous. Results include engaged and empowered employees, thorough and considered responses to changes in the external environment, enhanced reputation and stakeholder relationships, and inspirational leadership. The panelists, bringing perspectives from different industries, will explore these issues, the challenges they bring, and the factors that drive success.
