St. Jude: Creating One of The Most Desirable Places to Work

On this week’s episode of the Future of Work podcast I’m speaking with Dana Bottenfield, VP of Human Resources at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude is among one of the most famous research facilities known for the amazing work they do with kids. But, did you know St. Jude was voted as the No. 1 company to work for by Millennials? On Glassdoor, St. Jude received 4.5 stars, 100 percent of their employees recommend their CEO, and 93 percent state they would recommend the company to a friend. These are among the highest numbers I have ever seen for any company. In addition, for the past several years they have also been on Fortune’s Top 100 Companies to Work For. Earlier this year I had the honor of speaking at St. Jude at an internal conference on leadership and management. While there I found out they are an amazing place to work, and I wanted to find out what Dana and her team at St. Jude are doing to create such a desirable work environment. In this podcast, Dana and I explore topics such as driving employee engagement, low-cost initiatives, work-life balance, scaling HR, open and closed offices, and scaling HR. Dana shares her perspective on how the workplace is changing, freelancers, and what challenges she faces. I always like to interview interesting organizations and the people running them from a people perspective. And, I think you’ll find this episode with Dana Bottenfield to be both inspirational and educational. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
