He will share his thoughts on what it takes to be a "best place to work," and how to create the kind of corporate culture that fosters creativity, builds employee and customer loyalty and benefits the company's bottom line.
Dallas Business Journal recently finished its eighth year of recognizing small, medium, and large companies in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex as "best places to work." To receive this honor, company employees completed in-depth surveys administered by QMR Corp. To share insights and tips on how to succeed in creating a unique company culture, executives from a select few of the honoree companies will participate in a panel discussion, including:
- Keith Holtz, Chief Human Resources Officer, Baylor Health Care System
- Paul Driscoll, CEO, Hill & Wilkinson
- Steve Gwinn, Partner, Northwestern Benefits
This is the second year in a row for Spiegelman to participate in the Dallas Business Journal CEO Speaker Series. As CEO of Beryl, a technology-focused patient experience company dedicated to improving relationships between healthcare providers and consumers, he leads a unique, people-centric culture that has remarkably high employee and customer retention rates. In addition, the company has won nine "best place to work" awards, including being voted the #2 Best Medium Sized Company to Work for in America.
While continuing to lead Beryl, Spiegelman is co-founder and CEO of The Small Giants(SM) Community, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting companies that choose to be great instead of big. This role is a natural extension of his first book, Why is Everyone Smiling? The Secret Behind Passion, Productivity, and Profit which explores how businesses can create a unique culture that drives profits.
