The connection between organizational culture and company performance was proven a long time ago by professionals such as Dan Denison, John Kotter, and Edgar Schein. Today, the challenge we have in front of us as food professionals is to transfer this proven connection in our companies to improve food safety and quality.
Improved food safety and quality performance must be measured by lower risk, fewer mistakes, higher profit, and better retention of talent. To gain these improvements, you need a plan – a blueprint – that your leadership can rally around and support for the long haul.
Alchemy, GMA SEF, and Cultivate Food Safety are joining forces to offer a one-day seminar on September 18, 2017. Participants will learn how to build "Your Food Safety Culture Blueprint" specific to your company with the help of expert instructors in organizational culture, journalism, and food safety. Instructors include:
Dr. Dan Denison, chairman and founding partner of Denison Consulting, an organization dedicated to optimizing the performance of organizations by improving their culture and leadership.
Dr. Lone Jespersen, Principal of Cultivate Food Safety, an organization that helps food manufacturers benchmark and improve the strength of their food safety culture.
