Audience: Shelter/Rescue Staff & Volunteers

Video Length: 47 minutes

Peter Drucker first said "Culture eats strategy for lunch" and since then, organizational culture has become a buzzword and a way of life for organizational development consultants. In this workshop, learn what culture is, why it matters, and how you can create and preserve a great organizational culture through hiring the right people. This workshop is based on a transformation that our organization, Emancipet, went through, resulting in lower turnover, increased employee engagement, and improved culture overall. We'll specifically discuss hiring in the animal welfare environment, including a special section on hiring veterinarians for cultural fit. This presentation was recorded at the 2017 ASPCA-Cornell Maddie's Shelter Medicine Conference.
