Workshop B: Building an Entrepreneurial Culture

Thursday, May 14th, 2020 @ 10:15 am - 11:45 am

How the Future Workforce Has Got It Right

What’s it all about? Founder of PERKS Conventions (PERKS). Founder of People Ops Society (POPS). There is no doubt that Alexa Baggio is an entrepreneur and a good one at that. Throughout his career in start-ups, Shea has successfully executed the most pioneering ideas and ambitious projects by strategically fostering his organizations’ workplace culture. This isn’t a talk about providing free food, great coffee, beanbag chairs, and a tapped keg in the office – that’s just a small piece of the equation. Rather, we will take a look at how one business-owner used strategic conversations with workforce “disrupters” and applied savvy micro-benefits to curate an entrepreneurial environment ripe with growth, innovation, and profitability.

Why You’ll Want to Join This Session:

  • Understand the elements of entrepreneurship – what it means to think and act like an entrepreneur – and how you can use entrepreneurial markers to impact your organization.
  • Analyze the entrepreneurial attributes of the future workforce and learn to curate them through your talent and development strategies.
  • Interpret your organization’s unique employee needs and take steps to foster a business-minded culture in order to contribute to the execution of your strategic plan.
