Join us to explore How to (re)Design Your Organization’s Values

Too often corporate values are platitudes that hang on the wall; nice sounding, but hardly helpful. If companies are serious about using culture as a business tool, values need to be sharp, differentiated, and actionable. Josh Levine, author of Great Mondays: How to Design a Company Culture Employees Love, will share how he tackles the challenge of designing compelling values and give participants the tools to start working on theirs. After you have your values sorted, Josh will help you evaluate the effectiveness of your recognition programs and identify how to begin improving them to support your companies values.

This workshop is great for founders, team leaders, employee experience managers and anyone interested in improving their company’s culture.

Registration required; seating is limited.

AIGA Members: $35
Non-members: $45
Registered attendees will receive a copy of Josh Levine’s book “Great Mondays: How to Design a Company Culture Employees Love.”

Light refreshments will be served. This is an alcohol-free event.

Online registration closes Wednesday, January 23. Walk-ins welcome.

Great MondaysGreat Mondays: How to Design a Company Culture Employees Love

Building a workplace culture that maximizes employee engagement, performance, and retention for long-term business success.

Workplace culture is critical, and evidence suggests that it’s a top driver of fiscal performance. Since 1998, organizations on Fortune’s “Best Companies to Work For” list have outperformed the S&P index two-to-one and garnered nearly three times the cumulative stock market return.

Great Mondays identifies the six key components of workplace culture, illustrating their connection to one another and explaining how they drive an organization’s ability to find, keep, and support the best employees. The author provides an actionable framework for increasing retention, supporting employee engagement, and driving exceptional business performance, regardless of industry or business size.

Implement the 6 components for creating a powerful culture—Purpose, Values, Behaviors, Recognition, Rituals, and Cues—and launch your company to the top of your industry.

Registered attendees of this workshop will receive a complimentary copy of Josh Levine’s book “Great Mondays: How to Design a Company Culture Employees Love.”
