How would you describe your company’s culture? If you’re scratching your head, chances are your company doesn’t have a purposeful culture. An inauthentic and unproductive office culture can cost you not only money, but also the loyalty of your employees. This week’s #HRTailgate Twitter chat, we’re digging into what makes a company’s culture purposeful.
The host of your chat is G&A Partners’ own Nancy Edwards, Client Advocate and HR Advisor. Our special guest host is Chris Edmonds, Speaker, Author and Executive Consultant of The Purposeful Culture Group.
If you’ve never participated in a Twitter chat, you’ll be surprised at how simple it is to participate. A Twitter chat is a live conversation focused on a topic — for this month; ours is creating a purposeful office culture in 2018. The chat has eight questions; chat participants can engage in dialogue with chat hosts and other chat participants by answering the questions and using the hashtag #HRTailgate. (Forbes shares everything you need to know about a Twitter chat in this article.)
