A great company culture can drive success in almost every area of your business, from performance, to recruitment, to retention.

But how do you create that culture? How do you translate it from a statement on a page into something that actively influences the attitudes and behaviors of your employees?

For many companies, the answer is employee recognition. By recognizing and rewarding actions that align with your company’s core values, you can infuse your culture into every aspect of your day-to-day work.

Join Guusto’s Head of People Noah Warder and Co-founder Skai Dalziel as they explore how to define, build, and reinforce a truly great company culture, and the role employee recognition plays in helping you get there. 


The session will cover:

  • What makes great company culture 

  • Why it matters

  • How to build your company culture

  • How to reinforce culture through recognition

  • How to overcome common roadblocks and challenges


We’ll discuss what company culture is, and how it drives how your employees act, behave, make decisions, and approach their work. From that starting point, we’ll look at how to build a culture that creates a sense of purpose, opportunity, and wellbeing for your team.

Finally, we’ll look at 9 steps you can take to align, connect, and empower employees to make your desired culture a reality, and how to overcome the challenges you might face along the way. These insights will give you a clear roadmap towards creating a truly impactful culture at your company.
