#5-14: Diversity, Inclusion, and Why Now is the Time
Everyone can make an impact. That’s at the heart of creating a purpose-driven workforce. And that’s one reason diversity and inclusion are so important in the workplace, because you can’t be your best unless everyone has a voice. We’ve invited WEX’s Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer onto Benefits Buzz so she can share her story with us.

#5-13: A tattoo-friendly HR brand
We’re not wired to be loyal to products or services, no matter how well they perform. We’re only capable of being loyal to people and to well-managed brands that successfully humanize their presence by creating emotional resonance with us. Imagine the value to your company when you create an experience that compels loyalty. And that applies to your customers and your employees. Ken Schmidt shares his experience building tattoo-worthy customer relationships during his time at Harley-Davidson. To learn more about Ken Schmidt, visit https://kenspeaks.com/.

WEX Chair and CEO Melissa Smith is here to tell you about the impact reimagining employee recognition can have on your business or organization.
