Beyond Benchmarking

Transforming culture through patience, passion & perspiration

Beyond Benchmarking

We believe that culture is a commitment, not a strategy. Barry-Wehmiller’s transformation to a people-first culture resulted from a deep commitment to the people who make our business possible.  Our systematic and replicable approach has been tested on more than 70 acquisitions and 20-plus years of profitability. Over two days, we will share with you the critical decisions and initiatives we undertook in transforming our culture, including how we’ve ensured its sustainability, and what happens when our model is tested. Attendees will leave with tools they can use in their organization to impact cultural change in their span of care.

Who Should Attend?
Anyone interested in building a people-centric culture within their organization, business, community group or team.
