Carole Wedge, CEO
Shepley Bulfinch believes an employee’s feelings about belonging or not belonging in a firm or on a team directly impacts the quality and effectiveness of their work. We have used continuous improvement to shape Shepley’s employee experience philosophy. We’ve looked at everything from our application process, interviews, and onboarding to the day-to-day work of collaborating, having “continuous conversations,” and celebrating our successes. Ongoing attention and conversations in these areas have allowed us to continually improve what it’s like to work at Shepley. In this talk, Carole will share Shepley’s employee experience philosophy, programs, and results to spark a conversation about what you can do to improve the employee experience at your firm.
