Building Better Cultures

Mark Edgar isn’t a stranger to challenges, he’s built a career teaching organizations how to thrive in spite of it all. As a people-centric, strategic and innovative consultant, facilitator, and coach he has global experience developing and delivering impactful and business focused people strategies. The HR expert and self-proclaimed optimist shares his passion for people and creating better workplaces in this episode of the Building Better Cultures podcast with Scott McInnes. The core of Mark’s philosophy of work is trust - something he’s learned from years of experience and researching, looking ahead to an ever-changing work environment. Instead of running away from hybrid work models, he has assessed the setbacks and challenges others to see the opportunity to rethink the status quo and re-define what it means to be a successful company and how we get there. By capitalising on this moment, we have the opportunity to build leaders who are better equipped to support employees in this new world. But how do we sustain productivity if we’re changing where and how the work gets done?  The answer isn’t cut and dry. By treating each team differently and empowering them to do their job in the way that they want to be treated, Mark suggests that the key to profits may be in the way we treat our co-workers. Doing the work to create a more compassionate work environment retains talent and builds a better workforce and output, it just may require us to think again about business as usual. Enjoy this thoughtful and passionate discussion and candid look at what it takes to build a healthy work culture in which everyone thrives – both at home and in the workplace.
