As a society, we’re starting to walk away from the idea that people can be treated like a widget, plugged into a process, then managed like a resource. When a company’s only goal is to make money, they ironically set themselves on a path to squander the opportunities to do so. Companies who build their cultures upon the value of relationships save money. They have less turnover. Experience fewer workplace injuries. A smaller number of employees miss work which affect productivity. More employees offer innovative ideas because they feel safe enough to engage their best stuff.
I’ve been in Baltimore the last few days. Flew out there Wednesday and got back last night. I was attending the It’s Time Network Inaugural Summit representing Queentia. Queentia is an engagement partner along with another organization I’m involved in, NAWBO (National Association of Women Business Owners).
With Queentia, I am a cofounder and Chief Social Impact Officer. With NAWBO, I’m a member of the board for the Sacramento Valley Chapter.
There is much more backstory about the connections between Queentia, NAWBO and It’s Time Network,
