Designing an Authentic Organization Workshop

September 16, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am

Designing an Authentic Organization Workshop

An attractive outward-facing brand is no longer enough to compete. These days, companies must design the employee experience to authentically embody their external image. Thanks to greater access to information and social media, it’s easier than ever for customers, clients, and competitors to gauge and react to a brand’s authenticity – or inauthenticity. On top of that, generational values are shifting as well — younger employees are seeking jobs that are personally meaningful. To retain talent – and customers – it’s imperative that your brand be authentic both inside and out.

Caleb Dean of Owl, Fox & Dean will lead a workshop to introduce a Whole-Brand Model for organization design. This model was developed to create the conditions for brand authenticity and meaningful experiences among all stakeholders. Participants will engage in a framework for integrating the internal employee experiences with external-facing brands. Hosted by Elkus Manfredi Architects, Caleb Dean’s Workshop is a part of Design Museum’s Center for Workplace Innovation, in partnership with Jamestown Properties.
