Company culture is often a key indicator of success. It correlates with employee satisfaction and can be a strong recruiting tool. According to one report, 88 percent of job seekers consider company culture when evaluating prospective employers.

In less than three years, millennial and GenZ workers will make up 70 percent of the workforce. Research increasingly shows that employees of these generations want to be a part of an organization that lives out its values and makes an impact.

However, when founders aren’t intentional about establishing and nurturing their company’s culture, it can have a negative impact on recruitment and retention. Another report found that 73 percent of professionals have left a job because they disliked the company culture.

At a Founders Network event on July 28, 2022, recruiting professional and company culture guru Rob Napoli will share his hard-won secrets for building an intentional company culture and recruiting talent. Hear from Napoli and engage in a roundtable discussion with your tech startup founder peers.

Napoli will cover:

  • How to establish and maintain company culture
  • How to live out company values in a remote/hybrid environment
  • Best practices and actionable steps for building great teams
  • How to avoid unnecessary turnover

Testimonials

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.

David Plonsky

The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.

Chaitanya Vaidya

We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.

Doug Lessing

FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.

Becky Splitt

We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.

Max Linares

There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.

Jarie Bolander

It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.

Terence Finn

I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
