IncubatorCTX Speaker Series Joel Coffman, Executive Director- RecognizeGood: “Build Ethics Into Business From the Start”
Register on Zoom: https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_ajFJLUhWT4iX14m2ZmasVA How do workplace values mix with personal values, and how do they change over time? Whether you're an entrepreneur, a hiring manager or a job candidate, building those values in from the start can be significantly more impactful when both the business and the individual start off in alignment and stay there instead of trying to "reset" down the road. Over the course of several years and over 100 interviews with business leaders on implementing workplace values, several trends have emerged that Joel would like to share with you in this session. Most importantly for students and entrepreneurs, Joel will point out what to look for in the very beginning of an employment lifecycle to save stress, time and even money down the road.
