TALK 1 / Culture as Strategy: The Dual Bottom Line to Create a Better Business
When attempting to change corporate culture, many companies target ways to improve the financial bottom line. EnPro Industries, a $1.3 billion global diversified manufacturer, has taken a different approach, developing a culture over the past decade that focuses on the dual bottom line of business growth and personal growth. In this ED Talk, Marvin Riley, President and CEO, and Susan Sweeney, President, GGB Division, will explain why EnPro views the relationship between realizing human potential and organizational potential as complementary, not a trade-off.
Marvin will discuss how his management team’s practice of ego-free leadership has created a more transparent and trusting environment that has led to more successful collaboration – and how this has helped build an “everyone culture,” where employee development is woven into the daily fabric of working life and the company’s operations.
