CAHR18 Mega Session: It’s All About the People with Garry O. Ridge

We’re excited to announce that the 2018 California HR Conference is bringing CEO of WD-40, Garry O. Ridge, to the main stage for a mega session! Employee engagement is getting a lot of attention these days, and for good reason. Over 70% of all employees in the United States are disengaged at work, leading to lower satisfaction, lower productivity, and increased turnover. In 2018, engaging your employees and helping them thrive is more important than ever, but finding a blueprint that works for your organization is tough. Luckily, we have the opportunity to learn from Garry, an employee engagement whisperer at WD-40 since 1997!

As chief executive officer and a member of the board of directors of WD-40 Company, Garry Ridge is responsible for developing and implementing high-level strategies, all operations, and the oversight of all relationships and partnerships for the company. Garry is passionate about the learning and empowering organizational culture he has helped establish at the WD-40 Company, and his vision and leadership have positively impacted the WD-40 Company in both measurable and immeasurable ways.

This mega session with WD-40 Company CEO Garry Ridge will be a look “under the hood” of one of the world’s most recognized brands, where:
– employee engagement is above 93%,
– 98% say they “love to work at WD-40 Company”,
– and 99% say that their “opinions and values are a good fit” for WD-40 Company.

This high engagement has resulted in a company that has doubled in revenue in the last decade, and is on a trajectory to double again in the next. Garry will share his company’s “learning moments” over the course of his efforts to transform the company’s culture, beginning in 1997.

Register today to hear from Garry, Mel Robbins, Afdhel Aziz, and a Fortune 100 Best Places to Work panel at the 2018 California HR Conference.
