Every business has a culture that affects how it performs. Culture isn’t optional.
How you deal with the day-to-day people challenges in the workplace has a massive effect on that culture.
Building a great culture is difficult. So we’re bringing together founders, CEOs, COOs, Heads of People & Heads of HR to share their honest experiences, their struggles and their learnings.
At the end of each episode, you will have something to take away and implement with your team.
Can you really focus on employee happiness and still drive performance?

You've codified your values into a functional, high performing culture. But how do you move from an early stage, speed oriented culture into something that fits your current team and business goals? Chloe Bartle, Head of People and Culture at Trouva, came out of the pandemic of 2020 with a stronger team in need of a re-coding of their values which had become irrelevant to boosting performance and was driving away talent. She joins us to talk about how they turned things around at Trouva, and saved their culture by updating it.
How to build a culture that confronts racial bias
It can be tricky figuring out a framework and the key cogs of any organisation to work on to confront racial bias and rectify inequalities. Daisy Auger-Dominguez has been doing that good work at the likes of Google, Disney and now VICE Media, and has a new book on the subject out.
She joins us to share her knowledge on the subject and make a case for focussing in on managers when trying to build a culture that confronts racial bias.
