The Business Owners Roundtable | Creating Thriving Workplace Culture | October 18

clock October 3, 2017 22:51 by author Ogoing Team

Connect and Share Ideas with Local Business Owners on How To Create A Thriving Workforce Culture.

Whether you are a one-person solopreneur looking to hire your first employee, or a growing small business with 5 or more employees, creating a positive workforce culture is critical to your success and future growth. How do you go about enabling your company environment where employees love to work hard, enjoy the teamwork and stay super productive?

"Sometimes business owners concentrate so much on acquiring the next big account, they forget to actually plan to protect and nurture the company’s culture.

To optimize any expansion, it’s important to create specific plans – before the growth takes place – that focus on issues of infrastructure and personnel. Otherwise, you’re likely to look up after the dust settles and realize you’ve lost key personnel and that “special something” that helped define your company.

Warning: Chaos ahead

Business owners often mistake superficial things for culture: The foosball table in the break room or the meeting rooms named after comic book characters. But really, workforce culture is shaped by a host of organizational decisions, some related to infrastructure."1*

Largest Entrepreneurship Conference in Southern California | TiECon Southwest 2017

Welcome to TiEcon Southwest 2017

Meet Parag Havaldar | 2017 Academy Award Oscar

How does the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences let Parag Havaldar know he’s won an Oscar for Technical Achievement? You have to come to TiEcon Southwest to find out the answer...

Raised in India, Parag came to the U.S. to attend graduate school at USC where he earned a doctorate in computer vision, and also serves on its faculty to teach a graduate course in multimedia. Parag currently works at Blizzard Entertainment, which has created franchises such as the World of Warcraft and Overwatch.

It took a lot of work from a lot of people,” Parag said of the awarded facial animation technology for his pioneering work at Sony Pictures Imageworks. “It is humbling to get that respect (from the Academy), but at the same time, a lot of other people continue to work on different, perhaps more purposeful and meaningful things than making movies, and receive no recognition.

Come listen to Parag as he inspires us with his journey form Obscurity to Oscars, and leaves us energized and stimulated with the possibility of creating digital personalities in other fields of entertainment and communication.
