HR impacts business success by creating thoughtful and inclusive workplace cultures. During this session, Courtney Branson, Director of Culture + People will explore how to tackle culture at every stage of business, and why overlooking this strategic piece of HR may lead to toxic environments, legal hiccups, and rapid turnover.

Using real-world anecdotes and personal experiences, Courtney will set the scene for how toxic culture is born and bred, exploring also the potentially devastating business impact. In addition, she’ll provide practical examples of how to nurture a “people-first” mentality throughout the organization - whether you’re a group of 3 or 300, including: embarking on a feedback journey and infusing your values into everything including your leadership.
