As a business owner, you have a million things to do and endlessly shifting priorities. You may have asked yourself, “Is investing in my company culture a good use of my time?”

The answer is YES. Why? Because according to our research, the Best Small and Medium Workplaces have triple the revenue growth of their peers. Trust also boosts innovation, productivity, employee retention, and other performance metrics.

Join us for a roundtable discussion with successful entrepreneurs and business owners who have created a great workplace while wrestling with challenges such as limited resources, ever-changing competitive threats, and a war for top talent in the Bay Area. This webinar will show you how to make a high-trust culture the rocket fuel that accelerates your growth.

Topics Covered:

  • When you should focus on company culture
  • How to invest in your culture when you have major resource and time constraints
