What makes a great place to work? It’s the people who show up every day inspired to do their very best work. Hausmann-Johnson Insurance is led with the philosophy of “when an employee feels valued, so do the clients.” A philosophy that was recognized when Fortune ranked Hausmann-Johnson Insurance on their 2016 & 2017 Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for list.

So, how do you achieve this in the workplace? In this presentation, we’ll share with you our experiences in the Great Place to Work journey, what being a Great Place to Work actually means, and what you do with the results. You’ll learn:

  • Why you might pursue an award and how to determine if your organization is ready
  • The Five Components of a Great workplace
  • What you should do with your survey results
  • How to develop and implement a plan to make changes
  • If you win, now what?
