This retreat is based on the book, The Culture Question, and provides a guide for how every organization can increase employee engagement and become a great place to work. Unfortunately, far too many people don’t like where they work. Some organizations are unhealthy and full of disrespectful behaviour. Other workplaces are simply uninspiring. For various reasons, countless people feel trapped, indifferent, or bored at work. The secret to employee engagement and creating workplaces where people like to work is culture. By exploring six key elements that make up a healthy workplace culture, participants will learn the answers to two fundamental questions: “How does your organization’s culture impact how much people like where they work?” and “What can you do to make it better?”

This retreat is facilitated by one of the four authors of this book, Randy Grieser, Eric Stutzman, Wendy Loewen, and Michael Labun.
