In this episode we hear from Jennifer Marszalek, Chief Talent Officer with Havas Chicago on the extent to which she, her team, and her organization go to "walk the talk" when it comes to their workplace culture. They've gone far beyond the lip service many organizations still pay culture. They take the time, make the investment, and dedicate the resources to making sure everything they do - the way they behave, the things they say, the way they work - reinforces and clarifies the things that drive their success. There are no questions about it - whether you're on the inside looking in or on the inside looking out. It's this kind of intentional culture management work that can become a differentiator for your business. And it certainly has for them.

In this episode, Lotus Yon, Director of Human Resourceas and Learning with Northwest Community Healthcare, shares her experience around creating a workplace culture that brings flexibility to life. This is not about policies and programs; it's about embedding, ingraining, and infusing the lifestyle of flexibility into our very fabric. It's about creating a culture that reinforces and clarifies the importance of flexibility at every turn - the way we act, the way we interact, and the way we work. We explore the difference between work-life-balance and work-life-integration. And we impart some wisdom around really meaning flexibility when we say "flexibility."
