 An Extraordinary Workplace Is More Than Ping Pong Tables and Bean Bags
Presented by: Kai Nykolas Dickens CEO And Founder, PLAYOLOGY

Registration at this venue is limited to 50 attendees. Register now to reserve your spot!

Abstract: We have all heard the stories about companies putting ping pong tables and video game consoles in the break room. Some companies provide snacks and lunches weekly. Google and Zappos are famous for the extras they provide to boost employee engagement. Often times leaders read these stories and think that just by adding some of these elements to their culture, the team is going to be engaged, bought in and work harder. The truth is that it takes much more than these few perks to create, build and sustain an amazing company culture. If you are looking to create the environment where your team is engaged, happy and invested – this is the session for you.

You will walk away understanding:

  • The top 4 mistakes companies make in regards to company culture
  • The 5 keys to create a culture all generations including the millennials are excited about
  • The difference between leading and managing people and teams
  • Why paying your team to play is one of the best things you can do to improve profits
