Mark your calendars for the 2022 Small Giants Community Summit​, happening April 26-28 in Detroit, MI

It’s time for a culture reboot

We hate to use the “u” word, but the past couple of years have been… unprecedented. And now, business can no longer focus solely on business. The COVID-19 pandemic, the social justice movement, mental health awareness, and the climate crisis have all made themselves present in our lives to an extent that cannot be ignored. The year of 2022 calls for companies and leaders to think critically about their place in the world. It’s time to think about how we treat our existing employees, seek out new ones, and operate our businesses. There’s no “work/life balance” anymore - it’s all just life, and we need to bring our whole selves into our work to be effective leaders, while also carving out time to feel complete. Many of us have begun to shift and adapt, but we have to continuously improve. The status quo is no longer enough - get ready for a cultural reboot.
