SLIDES FROM THE WORKSHOP: MORNING SESSION AFTERNOON SESSION
Create an Effective Company Culture
Creating a strong company culture where employees hold themselves accountable does not happen by osmosis. Employees want to feel valued, knowing that they have a stake in the outcome. It takes consistent effort from leadership to create a culture that leads to higher productivity. Learn from the industry giants:
Jennifer was the lead cultural steward for New Belgium Brewing as the VP of Human Resources. In her 13 years with New Belgium, she shepherded the company through multiple growth phases driving value growth and an award-winning culture. She was a member of the executive leadership team and helped build a vision and grow the business from a small regional brewery to a national brand with over 900 employees, multiple locations and nearly 1,000,000 barrels of beer.
During her tenure, New Belgium won multiple awards including repetitive Outside Magazine Best Places to Work, the Wall Street Journal Best Small Workplaces and the Worldblu Most Democratic Workplaces. By building a purpose based, inclusive, open book managed company – they developed a system that built collective economic success. Inclusively capitalistic.
