How Great Workplaces Create Values-Based Cultures

Keynote by Graham Lowe at AgriVision 2007 Conference. Alberta Department of Agriculture annual employee conference, Edmonton, Jaunary 16-17, 2007.

Great workplaces inspire employees. They do this by embedding strong people values in their culture and building high-trust relationships across the organization. Dr. Lowe will help us to understand how Alberta Agriculture’s values and vision point the way to great workplaces. Drawing on the cultural practices of organizations on the Great Place to Work® Institute’s ‘best workplaces’ lists in Canada, the US and 28 other countries, he will challenge each of us to take responsibility for living the values of a trusting and supportive culture. This will pay off in terms of an exceptional work environment in which employees are able to provide outstanding public services.
