Understanding Engagement – How Survey Feedback Informs Program Development
Presented By: Debbie Lakamp, Director Talent Management, Graybar
Engaged employees bring their best self to work. They are more likely to do their best work and contribute to the success of the organization. While many companies ask employees for feedback, how are the survey results used to drive change and improve the employee experience? Unfortunately, sometimes this valuable data is not operationalized into meaningful programs or communication initiatives. This session will share how Graybar has created new programs or transformed existing practices to support business growth based on this important feedback.
In this session you will hear how Graybar:
- Created an Early Career Advisory Council to provide insight to the C-Suite
- Adopted more agile Performance Management practices
- Expanded their learning opportunities for a broader audience
- Pivoted their internship program to a virtual one given the constraints of the pandemic
Creating A Strong Health And Wellness Culture – Cultivating, Embedding, And Sustaining Wellness To Improve Employee Engagement
Presented By: Leigh Fultz, Head of People and Culture, FUJIFILM Diosynth Biotechnologies
Creating and keeping a strong focus on employee’s overall wellbeing is one of the critical elements to an accomplished and fulfilled business philosophy which translates into a Great Place to Work and a prosperous organization.
We have all experienced a more than usually stressful year. Staying energized and motivated in these uncertain times has been a challenge to all. An organization that has a solid people culture and foundation will more likely bounce back from the current environment as well as many others. It is vital to appreciate and value your people. This appreciation must be genuine and strongly supported by leadership.
The COVID pandemic has naturally had a negative impact on our programs and initiatives, but the fact that we have demonstrated our true awareness of our most important asset -our employees-we will endure and continue as a Great Place to Work. This session will focus on the culture journey of one organization (and yes it was a long journey). Our speaker will discuss the concept and value of their people and why we should persist to provide a healthy life work balance.

The Culture Life Cycle
Presented By: Garnet Toritto, Director of Human Resources, Credit Saint
Like all things, culture has a life cycle that impacts the success of an organization. Each stage of this cycle comes with its own challenges; how we react and guide our organization through these stages can generate either positive or negative outcomes.
This session will focus on what the culture life cycle is, how each stage impacts an organization, how to identify what stage your organization is in and how to guide your organization as it transitions from one stage to the next.
