San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2007
Great Place to Work® Institute, the global research and consulting firm dedicated to "building a better society by helping companies transform their workplaces," announced today that Laszlo Bock, Vice President of People Operations at Google, will present a keynote speech during the Great Place to Work® Conference April 18-20 in Los Angeles. As a speaker, Bock joins 36 CEO’s and other top leaders from "100 Best" and "Best Small & Medium" Companies including Vanguard, FedEx, W.L. Gore, FedEx, CDW, Network Appliance, PwC, Ernst & Young, Timberland, REI, Capital One and more.
Google appeared for the first year on Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for® list, created by Great Place to Work® Institute. While recent press has focused on Google's incredible employee benefits, these perks and practices are just accessories to Google's strong foundation: treat people with respect; support creative endeavors; and don't be evil. These beliefs have enabled Google to create a culture where brainy, creative, entrepreneurial people could thrive.
The Great Place to Work® Conference is an annual learning and networking event featuring leaders who have created award-winning workplaces. Speakers from Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for® and the "Best Small & Medium Companies to Work for in America" share stories, best practices and tips on how to create a workplace culture built on trust. "The conference creates a community for executives and HR leaders committed to building great workplace cultures, who share stories and brainstorm solutions with professionals who share their commitment to creating a great place to work," offered Sarah Lewis-Kulin, Director of Education Services at Great Place to Work® Institute. "We are proud to highlight speakers like Laszlo Bock, who have shown exceptional leadership in creating the type of workplace where trust is foundational."
