Culture is a big buzzword these days, and many HR departments are tasked with improving culture at their workplaces.  While no one believes there’s a magic formula a company can use to create the culture it wants, everyone knows about those winning workplaces that seem to have broken the culture code.  Come and be inspired by the story of CarMax and their award-winning culture.  In this engaging session, you will learn about many of the programs and policies that have created the enviable culture that CarMax now enjoys.  Hear about what works and what doesn’t when building or changing company culture, and take away lots of ideas to help you emulate what CarMax has done.
