Daniel Patterson and Dr. Cristen Dalessandro of O.C. Tanner Institute
Company culture. It's a perennial topic of conversation for HR professionals, but what does it mean in practice? And what practical steps can you take to create a thriving workplace culture? Mission, values, and goals—these are all important facets of culture. But we can't forget about community. Workplace community is what brings employees together. It’s the sense of belonging, trust, and unity that helps people feel welcome and encourages them to stay.
For organizations seeking to attract, retain, and grow top talent, a strong workplace community is vital. You'll know you've successfully facilitated this kind of community when your teams experience meaningful connections, a strong sense of belonging, and a compelling purpose. But community building takes mindful work.
Join Daniel Patterson and Dr. Cristen Dalessandro of the O.C. Tanner Institute during this webinar as they share the research and insights you need to establish the practical steps your organization can take to strengthen workplace communities and help your people thrive.
