Creating A Fully Engaged Workforce That Will Result In Powerful Brand Reputation And Customer Satisfaction

Presented by: Katie Coldwell, Southwest Airlines
Sponsored by: Curry Printing

Join the GreaCurry Printingter Fort Worth PRSA on Wednesday, August 12, as Katie Coldwell, director of communication & outreach for Southwest Airlines Co, discusses how to create a fully engaged workforce that results in powerful brand reputation and customer satisfaction.

Southwest Airlines is known for its fun and “LUVing” Corporate Culture. A fully engaged workforce is an essential ingredient for a positive reputation, and bottom-line results, while culture is one of the most powerful elements that can impede or enable change. This session will provide you with a glimpse into how Southwest Airlines uses a variety of communication tools to shape its culture, motivate change, and engage employees, including:

  • Exciting new ideas to energize your employees—all on a minimal budget
  • Opportunities to communicate to your entire employee group—whether you have a highly mobile workforce or one with daily computer access
  • How “Vision” and “Purpose” can’t just be words on paper, but can come to life through storytelling
