About This Meeting

When employees think, act and feel like owners, companies are better places to work and they out-perform the competition. This webinar will explore how employee-owned firms can use continuous improvement tools and strategies to build or enhance their ownership culture at the frontline by engaging and empowering employees where work is done, and value is created, every day.
