Having a strong company culture is no longer just a mere option in the workforce. A company’s values, rituals and overall spirit make a huge impact on employee happiness and their willingness to stick around. A Columbia University study shows the likelihood of job turnover at an organization with a strong company culture is a mere 13.9 percent, whereas the probability of job turnover at an organization with a weak company culture is 48.4 percent—yikes!
Just in time for the Big Game, our first HR Tailgate of 2017 will discuss “How to Score a Winning Company Culture.” Join us on February 9 from 11 a.m. – 12 p.m. CST for an engaging chat led by G&A Partners’ Director of Corporate HR Bonnie Scherry, and special guest host Valerie Alexander, speaker, author and workplace happiness expert.
If you’ve never been involved 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 workplace wellness. The chat is guided by 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.)
