About this event

About the Culture Design Series

The ability to spearhead culture change in today’s rapidly changing startup environment is the difference between thriving or barely surviving. Join CULTURE LABx in a workshop series at General Assembly that showcases a variety of models in culture design: visual thinking, positive psychology, experience mapping and more.

Aug 9: Hiring for Innovation

How can companies be intentional about building and nurturing a good workplace culture? The short answer: Hire for the right roles. Some people believe that founders are the only ones who can create company culture. It’s true that founders are usually responsible for creating the original values. But as a company grows, there are still opportunities for cultural recalibration.

Join us for a workshop led by IDEO’s Org Design studio on the the new faces of organizational culture.

In this interactive workshop you’ll learn about:

The seven roles of people who help define, harness, reflect, and embody culture.
