Changing the Work Culture by Respecting Employees’ Life Outside Work


Here’s a simple yet innovative way that one CEO is creating a positive work culture in his company: respecting his employees’ social lives. Ian Sohn, a single father and the president of Wunderman Chicago digital agency, shared the personal beliefs that have shaped the work culture of the company he currently leads on a now-viral LinkedIn post. Bronwyn Isaac of Good website writes about the lively discussion and positive responses that Sohn’s post sparked. 

Here’s one highlight from the article:
