Yum! Brands CEO David Novak. Piedmont Natural Gas CEO Thomas E. Skains. Iglo Foods Group CEO Martin Glenn. USAA CEO Joe Robles. These four chief executives head up very different companies in four different industries. But they have one thing in common. All four made corporate culture a top strategic priority and focused on leading the culture transformations at their companies. Creating healthy, high-performance cultures has reaped enormous benefits for each company, including improving employee engagement, customer satisfaction, financial performance and shareholder value.
We are pleased to share interviews with these top CEOs that provide candid insights into how they have focused on transforming their cultures as a key driver of employee engagement and performance as a key competitive advantage. The interviews are all included in our summer 2012 issue of at your best. Our quarterly newsletter is a free learning resource that is part of Senn Delaney's purpose of helping to change the world by inspiring leaders to create thriving organizational cultures.
Among the interviews:
