Culture & Values: How do companies create values and culture that lay the foundations for success? How can they get “values and culture” off the page of their training manual and into practice? This workshop will walk entrepreneurs through the steps of delineating their values, establishing cultural practices that embody the values, and making sure that even the newest hire is engaged by them. The basis for this workshop comes from Wikimedia Foundation’s Chief Talent and Culture Officer, as well as ReWork’s HR guru.
Hiring & Onboarding: It’s well-known that hiring the right person for the job is crucial to a company’s success, but how do you actually do that?
