Key Quotes:

  • “I set up Culture Gene to focus on company culture because I’d seen the light. The penny had dropped. And, I realized that culture was the missing link for most companies. I was really fortunate to get that opportunity to step out and work on my passion.” – Brett Putter
  • “The thing about company culture is it’s largely invisible, subconscious, and intangible. So, you know, people don’t get it. They can’t touch it, they can’t feel it often. The best leaders make it visible, conscious, and tangible. – Brett Putter
  • “If I’m working remotely, I don’t want to feel not included. I don’t want to feel like I have to advocate for myself and my work. I don’t want to feel like I experience a different work culture, I don’t want to feel like my promotion opportunities are hampered. So, if you’re going to run a hybrid business, you’ve got to work this out. Because, the people who feel like second-class citizens are going to go to a company, where they can feel like first-class citizens.” – Brett Putter
