Getting Proactive about Workplace Culture
Mary Buckley & Marie Johnston from Culture by Design
Among the myriad of priorities start-ups and established tech companies must face, workplace culture can often be overlooked. We’ll discuss why taking a proactive approach to workplace culture from an early stage in a business’s life is so beneficial for future success, particularly in the fast-moving tech sector. We’ll also share some practical ideas for how you can begin getting proactive around your workplace culture, regardless of how new or mature your business may be.
