Chicago, Illinois

Event Details

CEO of Chicago's Growth Play says that the most self-evident tenet of company growth and prosperity over time, pivots on talent—getting and keeping them in key roles. That, Dan Weinfurter says makes culture a strategic factor.

Entrepreneur magazine frequently posts the top firms based on culture, which they define as

"A blend of the values, beliefs, taboos, symbols, rituals and myths all companies develop over time."

Culture, however is also a two way street, the values are alive, and may conflict with messages and values leadership tries to impose. Today, measuring furthers understanding of the attributes and qualities within a healthy and effective culture. When used appropriately, these metrics also reinforce behaviors that produce favorable financial results.

Lockton will also share their own experiences and ROI discoveries as presented to Financial Executive Institute recently.
