Alive at Work: Dumping the Concept of “Work/Life Balance” In a world of always-on connectedness, work and life are not two separate worlds that can be contained and zeroed out on a day-to-day basis. As human beings, we are at our best when we are healthy, connected with other people, and pursuing meaningful goals. Yet, too often, companies are demanding employees to produce more, for less, at a greater expense to their health and personal lives. It is no wonder that only a small percentage of employees are truly engaged in their jobs. In his talk, Clif Bar & Company CEO, Kevin Cleary will make the case for why we have to dump the concept of work/life balance so that we can finally live rich and fulfilling lives throughout the entire day. Attendees will gain a greater insight on how Clif Bar encourages its people to pursue happy, healthy, meaningful lives in the workplace and beyond, the foundation for any thriving, successful business. http://www.greatplacetowork.com/2015-conference-agenda

An engineer by training, Michael C. Bush spent 30 years leading various businesses before taking over as GPTW’s CEO in 2015. Under his influence, the company recently added the words “for all” to the end of its mission statement, a subtle change that signals an important shift in the way GPTW will evaluate companies and create its rankings starting with the 2018 list. After looking at differences in survey results for the top 100 companies across gender, ethnicity, age, and hourly vs. salary lines, Bush “found you could be a ‘Great Place to Work’ and have people who were having a not-great experience,” he told the 2017 Conscious Capitalism CEO Summit. “I didn’t think that was ok. That’s why I added the ‘for all.’ For the 2018 list, we’re going to measure disparity. We’re going to be sure it’s a great place to work for all. You’re not going to get the label just because a group of people are having a great time.”

From Startup to Global Company: HR Strategies to Manage a Successful, Rapidly Scaling Company Presenter: Brooke James, HR Business Partner When you’re managing a rapidly scaling tech business, how do you protect your unique culture and maintain a productive work environment that continues to boost company success as well as individual career growth? That’s the challenge Yext has faced over the past three years, as it has added over 250 employees, representing an employee growth rate of 275%, and achieved a revenue growth rate of 2,026%. Yext’s story is unique in that the majority of the executive team, including the CEO, CTO, and COO, have all been friends since high school, which has instilled a strong dynamic since day one that it’s not just a business, but also a family. The founder’s strong relationship formed since their teens along with them being so young when they founded Yext, established a culture that empowers young talent and promotes individual career growth. While the leaders are passionate about maintaining this close-knit, entrepreneurial dynamic, this gets difficult in the rapidly evolving tech world as the company has scaled quickly from true NY startup to high-growth global company in just a few years. As Yext’s business has expanded and massive employee influx has diluted the core executive team and larger workforce, the HR department has had to come up with innovate ways to keep the unique culture intact and implement new organizational structures that help to preserve it while supporting rapid expansion. In this session, Yext’s HR Business Partner, Brooke James, will explain the challenges and obstacles Yext has faced through the company’s transformation, and the efforts her team has made to support the booming success of the company while protecting the cultural identity and core values and ensuring individual employees continue to feel empowered and that their contributions are making a difference. Through the company evolution, Brooke has led her team in implementing new processes and systems to streamline communication, new onboarding and training programs to make sure new employees understand Yext’s core mission and how they can add value and personally benefit, and new organizational structures to ensure that Yext’s culture values are always the anchoring force keeping the company true to itself as it continues to expand at a dizzying rate. In this session, attendees will learn: -The most challenging obstacles young tech companies face as they scale the business -How to filter out the key elements of your company’s culture and mission that you want to preserve as the company grows -With massive employee influx, what steps can you take to ensure the unique culture is not diluted -What are the pitfalls to avoid as you implement HR systemization -With a constant demand for new hires to help support growing operations, what strategies can HR implement to ensure the quality of talent remains high

Journey to 2020: Millennials, Culture and Leadership Presenters: Ross Grossman, Vice President, Head of HR Joshua Mitchell, Associate Director of Culture and Communication 2020 marks a new normal for companies across the world. For the first time, millennials are anticipated to be the majority of the workforce. What implication does this have on each of our organizations? 40% of the demographic population at Regeneron are millennials, and, for some time, millennials have taken on highly-visible and key decision-making roles across the company. For a company that still has its two founders leading the company, a focus on culture enabled the organization to take this leap. Culture was an intentional strategy to be timeless and purposeful, connecting the long-term needs of the organization with the day-to-day realities of operating the business. Like any good culture, it evolves and changes over time – but it always meets the changing needs of people and business. In this session, Ross Grossman, Vice President, Head of HR, and Joshua Mitchell, Associate Director of Culture and Communication will discuss the method used to create and nurture their culture to support the company’s 20-year survival before the first product was ever launched. The session will explore how Regeneron is passing this culture on to new generations of leaders and thousands of new employees while not forgetting about those who stay with the organization for decades. In this session, attendees will learn: Why free snacks and perks aren’t enough and the importance of creating the business case for connecting business strategy around culture. Millennials will be increasingly in leadership roles in our organizations and will be making decisions on behalf of the company en masse. What do millennial leaders need to know (from a millennial) to succeed and deliver value for your organization? Mechanisms, tools, and tactics you can use to give words to culture to intentionally spread culture to the next generation of employees. http://www.greatplacetowork.com/2016-conference-agenda
