Building a Strong Company Culture: Alley

Alley’s virtual panel on ‘Building a Strong Company Culture’ provided CEOs and leaders of startups and companies with insight on creating, enhancing, and maintaining their unique company culture. 

Alley is a community of entrepreneurs and corporate partners who use novel ideas and technology to influence the entrepreneurial ecosystem positively. Alley CEO Noelle Tassey hosted the webinar. The panel members were Ro Chief People Officer Amy Vezzetti, Culture Learning and Development at Human Advantage Advisor Kim Carver, and People at Conductor VP Nicole Oliver. 

The experts discussed the practices they undertake to ensure that the values of their company are upheld while achieving other goals. For instance, Oliver said that in her company, employees’ “beliefs” are broken down into “behaviors” to observe and understand how high-performing employees were able to do so while adhering to the company’s values. 

The panelists also spoke about the strategies they employed to enhance culture in their companies. Carver stated that it was essential to start at the base–to question what was happening in the company in the present moment, then think about what they envisioned the company to be. Vezzetti shared the necessity of integrating a company’s values into its orientations, meetings, and even their review sessions, while Oliver stressed that values had to be championed by the leaders. 

The event also touched upon several dilemmas that CEOs often face, such as dealing with criticism, making tough decisions about a company’s leadership, and tackling toxic culture. The experts spoke in detail about the necessity of providing employees with regular performance reviews, and the importance of open communication to develop trust. They shared their experiences to suggest ways in which leaders could build a rapport with their employees and ask employees for feedback. 

Lastly, the three panelists talked about how working from home had impacted their work experience. They emphasized the need for employers to be considerate towards their employees. They also proposed different ways in which companies could build trust among employees over virtual conferences and meetings and maintain normalcy to the extent possible. 

With its panel of experienced speakers, Alley’s webinar on building a robust company culture was beneficial for individuals holding leadership positions in companies, and gave them a greater understanding of how to ensure growth while staying true to their core values as an organization.
