Good Jobs Make Good Business Sense
June 12, 2023
5:00PM - 6:15 PM EDT
Join the Guild and the Good Jobs Institute for an introductory session on how to improve your business performance and employee experience simultaneously by combining an investment in people with operational choices that raise the productivity, contribution and motivation of employees.
We will explore four operational choices – focus and simplify; standardize and empower; cross-train; and operate with slack – that have been proven to lower employee turnover and increase profitability. You will come away from this session with an understanding of why good jobs make good business sense, and learn about the types of changes that other leaders have made to build a good jobs system.
GJI Fellow Amanda Silver will lead the session.
We will also hear from three bakery operators who believe that good jobs are good business, and have made meaningful changes within their own operations to improve jobs and performance: Natalie Abrams of Colson Patisserie, Amy Scherber of Amy's Bread and Kim Vallejo of She Wolf Bakery.
This session is the first of two with GJI on the Good Jobs Strategy. The second session will be held on July 18 at 5:00 pm EST. Attendance for the second session is optional.
