If we do everything we can in the workplace to create a business that is like a family, where people feel valued and recognized for their gifts and talents, can that be done in a vacuum?

In other words, can we do that without the people within feeling connected to the whole? Can people feel like they matter and go home fulfilled if they do not feel part of a shared purpose?

We don’t think so. Relationships create trust and help create a feeling of safety. It’s a need.

Within Barry-Wehmiller, we invest a lot of resources communicating to and with our people. In 2017, we are now a mix of more than 90 companies with 11,000 team members who speak 11 languages in more than 100 locations in 28 countries around the world.

Creating a culture built on human to human connection in today’s workplaces is challenging. But it is crucial to making sure our people feel like they are part of our family

This episode of the Everybody Matters Podcast features a discussion with Mark Sawyier of Bonfyre, a company who has created a workplace culture platform that is helping organizations engage, include and inspire their people.
