Better for Business, Better for People, Better for the World

Michael C. Bush

Creating Great Places to Work for everyone is no longer an HR strategy - it's the new business imperative. Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work, creator the gold-standard Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work For list, will reveal the leadership behaviors required to escalate innovation and the agility needed for every organization. Through inspiring stories and compelling research, he will demonstrate that great places to work for all benefit the individuals working there and contribute to a better global society—even as they outperform in the stock market and grow revenue three times faster than less-inclusive rivals. This is a call to lead so that organizations develop every ounce of human potential and enhance employee experience.

Be a bridge maker. Be a vocal leader. Be an instrument for progress.
