The Roots of Connection: Growing a Love Company

Let’s get to the heart of the matter: like food and water, relationships are essential to our daily lives. We are born with a natural craving to connect and need to feel supported, valued, and loved. With the average person spending 900,000 hours at work, nearly one-third of their lifetime, how do we bring meaning to the workplace that mirrors the meaning humans need in their everyday lives to survive?

Hear from Chewse and SnackNation on what it takes to build a company founded and fueled by authenticity in the workplace. They will share what it means to create a “love company” focused on bringing more connection into the world, and how to take an integrity-driven approach that taps into the emotional pipeline driving the new modern workplace.

Future of HR, eat your heart out.
