“If you want to build a sustainable future, you need to focus on your people.” - Zander Laurie
Addressing an audience of more than 1,000, CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™ signatory and SurveyMonkey CEO Zander Laurie shared personal diversity and inclusion anecdotes and how a company’s culture impacts a sustainable future.
Speaking with PwC’s Chief Purpose Officer Shannon Schuyler, they touched on diversity issues such as hiring, benefits, having a diverse board of directors, and creating a culture of belonging.
SurveyMonkey recently made news about the changes to benefits for contractors and on-site vendors for janitorial and food services. Zander recalled how his team worked to create a benefits framework for their extended workforce to better align with their company’s benefits. Additionally, he discussed how a board of directors should represent all stakeholders and be made up of individuals with different perspectives to help drive innovation.
