Welcome to the Tearsheet Podcast. I'm Zack Miller. I really enjoyed the recording of today’s episode. It’s different than what you’ve heard before. On today’s show we have Dennis Budinich, chief culture officer at $20 plus billion Investors Bank with 160 branches and nearly 2000 employees. Joining us is Patrick Brigger, co-founder and chairman of getAbstract, an educational platform that provides summaries of non-fiction books. What I liked so much about this conversation was that we talked about people — real people with real needs in the workplace. We frequently talk about financial services employees as numbers, as cogs in a massive wheel. But of course, they have desires, fears, and needs. They have a desire to connect to their co-workers and their organizations and feel wanted, like they’re contributing. Dennis and Patrick describe the magic that can go on inside an organization if you empower people to learn, to strive to be better, to improve themselves and their colleagues. In essence, free them up to be human and to bring their best to work. We’d like to thank our sponsor MX for supporting Tearsheet’s work.
