Leading by Example in Fostering a Culture of Service w/ Megan Putnam

In episode 19, we met with Megan Putnam to talk about what people leaders can do to move the needle on their company culture.
Episode 19
At some companies, core values are just words on a page. At others, employees live and breathe the core values. Walker Edison is the latter; a company where employees know every value starts with “we”—and the most important one is “We give.” We sat down with Megan Putnam, Head of People and Culture at Walker Edison, to hear about how culture emanates through the work that employees do at her company. She shared how having a culture of service doesn’t start when you hit a certain revenue or sales goal. It starts on day one—and how that mentality is evident in everyday work-life at Walker Edison. In this episode, we also talked about:
  • Why culture has to start at the top with senior people leading by example
  • The power of giving back to local businesses during COVID-19
  • Her expert tips for people leaders who are trying to improve or strengthen their company culture
  • How to walk the walk when it comes to values and culture
