Building the "Best Place to Work”: Talent Summit

 

Every year, Forbes, Glassdoor, Fortune, Boston Magazine and others publish their list of “Best Places to Work”.  Suppose you wanted to design the best company on earth to work for. What would it be like? And more important, how would you go about building that company – and what would you need to do to stay the course?

Competition for tech talent in the region is fierce.  Building a Great Place to Work is not just a nice idea, it’s critical to your company’s success.

1:30pm         Welcome


1:35pm         Building a Great Culture: Starting at the Top

There’s a lot more than just the bottom line when it comes to running a successful company. Before you can start growing your business, you need to create an environment that attracts the right talent. What is your vision for your organization?  How do you take that vision and create a culture that drives success. Do you need to be pushing more than just Maslow’s hierarchy of needs?    

Our CEO’s talk about what they believe it takes to build a Best Place to Work.

What you'll learn: 

  • There is no one-way to do it
  • How to define your culture
  • How to tell if culture is going off the rails

2:15pm         Get Sh*t Done Panel - Chief People Officer Panel  

Having a leader with of vision of what their company culture should be is a fantastic starting point -but there aren’t enough hours in the day to run a business and follow through on all of the details that inspire people to work hard for the company. Often the job of turning that vision into reality is left up to the Chief People Officer or the VP’s of HR. We heard from the visionaries,now we will hear from the people charged with realizing the vision.

What you'll learn:

  • How to translate aspirations into reality
  • How to track progress
  • Strategies for turning company culture around
