A Powerful Business Case for Happier Workers
Our CEO, Cameron Flowers was featured on the most recent episode of Built for Change, a podcast for Accenture hosted by broadcast journalist Elise Hu and technologist Josh Klein that explores "how the global pandemic has not only forced radical changes in business, technology and human behavior, but also created incredible new opportunities for leaders to evolve and ultimately excel in this environment. Through compelling conversations with industry thought leaders, Built for Change dismantles shop-worn assumptions of how to meet customer needs; links a new model of employee well-being to company success; demonstrates how technology and sustainability can be part of a business’s twin transformation — and more."
EPISODE NOTES FROM BUILT FOR CHANGE
"Can anything erase the historic tension between employers and workers, create trust and leave both parties better off? Groundbreaking new research from Accenture is paving the way for a new paradigm in modern business: Companies that help employees truly thrive, personally as well as professionally, are the ones that will win in the market of the future. While some leaders have long been sympathetic to this idea, the business case was harder to prove — until now. Ellyn Shook, Chief Leadership and Human Resources Officer of Accenture, and David Rodriguez, CHRO of Marriott, describe how they collaborated on Accenture’s “Care to Do Better” report, and explain its revolutionary stance: Caring for employees across personal and financial dimensions is not only the best way to unlock people’s true potential, it’s better for business."
